MOVIE REVIEW

Ravenous makes you hungry for a movie with a little more thought, as it presents an idea that could be pulled into a worthy film but just falls short in about every idea.

His character hardly talks, his character isn't even very likeable, and at some points he is hardly distinguishable from the bad guy, the venerable Robert Carlyle, who is the only stand-out thing in the entire one hour and forty minutes.
