It's not a review article, but the Phylogenetic Trees Made Easy book is best beginner tutorial you can get. It walks you through all the basics. I think most people can work through the book in a week or so. The third edition has ~ 200 pages. From the table of contents:
Ch. 1 - Introduction
Ch. 2 - Creating your first tree
Ch. 3 - Getting and aligning sequences
Ch. 4 - Neighbor-joining trees
Ch. 5 - Drawing phylogenetic trees
Ch. 6 - Parsimony
Ch. 7 - Maximum likelihood
Ch. 8 - Bayesian inference
Ch. 9 - Reconstructing ancestral sequences
Ch. 10 - Detection adaptive evolution
Ch. 11 - Computer platforms
It is not unreasonable to work through this book in a matter of days.
My book suggestion is a newish book, Tree Thinking, which just came out this year. I think that it's hands down the best text book for those beginning to understand phylogenetics (undergraduate level course in phylogenetics & cladistics). Reading Joe Felsenstein's book is the step after reading and fully understanding this book.
