Critic Reviews for Back to Hannibal: The Return of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2) | Rotten (3)

  • There's nothing wrong with dramatizing a reunion between Huck and Tom. The trouble with "Back to Hannibal" is that the production is too romanticized.

  • You can bet Twain would have done a far better job than anyone involved here did.

    Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Veteran TV director Paul Krasny does an admirable job re-creating the look and feel of small-town life in the late 1800s... However, while screenwriter Roy Johansen tries to capture the style and tone of the original classic, he is no Mark Twain.
