Hannibal Rising 
Hannibal Rising
3/4 stars

Gaspard Ulliel's scar is kind of sexy... in a Hannibal Lecter kind of way. Okay, he has a nice body, too. But were we really supposed to identify and feel emphathy for Lecter? Afterall, he becomes a killer and a cannibal (which is worse?). Nevertheless, as the film progressed, I learned to accept Lecter's tragic childhood and actually started rooting for him to kill the "bad guys." That's another thing that I liked about this film: there's is not a definite "good" and "bad." In fact, they're all bad guys. Yes, the tone of the film is sullen and can be slow at times. I thought that was reasonable because this film is about the history of Hannibal Lecter. Of course there's an absence of brilliant mind-games like in "Red Dragon" and novice agents like in "The Silence of the Lambs." But somehow, it all worked out for me. The higlight of this film is the "tied up to a tree" scene. Check it out.
