Film Review: ‘The Barber’

Film Review: ‘The Barber’
The Barber” is a slick but ultimately underwhelming psychochiller in which a younger man stalks the older serial killer whose evasion of justice scarred the former’s life. Unlikely to win much critical or word-of-mouth support, this decreasingly suspenseful pic will be much more widely seen via VOD than in its simultaneous limited March 27 theatrical launch.
