A prequel that failed on everything.

Not nearly as good as the book, but still a great insight into Lecter's youth.

Disappointing prequel. It's just a boring mess.

Seen it on tv with no expectations at all, and i was actually a BIT pleased at the end. Overall, the work is very well done, with great music, mood and photo. The flick should have been more tough, probably regarding the psyche of hannibal himself, i'd loved to see some word puzzles. The movie is cool to complete a hannibal marathon, but is not perfect at all. The kid that plays hannibal is fine, but i'd just asked anthony hopkins for a pic of him when he was young, and cast an exact replica. Dont listen to me, anyway, im an insane fan of continuty and stuff when it comes to sequals/prequals. Hey... Gong Li is good enough worth for watching this.

Hannibal Rising

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 someh...
