New York Times - 12/21/2007
"Mr. Burton's film adaptation of Mr. Sondheim's musical, is as dark and terrifying as any motion picture in recent memory....Expressing a breathtakingly, rigorously pessimistic view of human nature. It is also something close to a masterpiece..."

4 stars out of 5 -- [I]t's the giddy, relentless nihilism of the film that will thrill even the most showtune-phobic."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2008
"Burton has created a supremely cinematic work, in everything from the swooping, scuttling shots through London's sooty, satanic back alleys, to the wild-eyed vengeful intensity of its anti-hero..."
