Five minutes into it I knew I was seeing one of the greatest movies ever. Transcendently brilliant, there’s no other way to describe it. The music is awesome, the visuals are sumptuous, the acting is wonderful, and the music is breathtaking. Who knew Johnny Depp had such a great voice? This is one to see again and again. I am not a fan of musicals, but this one is such a feast for the eyes and ears, as well as the mind, that it should not be missed.
There is a bit of gore toward the climax, but it shouldn’t be surprising for anyone familiar with the story.
Five meat pies out of five.
