Hannibal Rising

  1. Is it just me, or did anyone else feel this film was like one overly long flashback that could have been handled better in any one of the Anthony Hopkins Lecter films. And sheesh, couldn't they have found an actor who looked more like a young Anthony Hopkins. This guy was downright ugly and lacked the sophisticated quality that Hopkins brought to the character. While I wouldn't ask for my money back, I am certianly glad I didn't buy it.

    George, I had no desire to see this. You can't be Silence of the Lambs. I really enjoyed Red Dragon but Hannibal did nothing for me.

    Saw this last night.
    I agree that the young Hannibal sucked. But overall the movie was not bad.
    It followed the book pretty well, although a good deal had to be skipped over.

    I the lead character actually had any on screen character, this could have been a good film. What were they thinking ?? He was more of a young uglier Crispen Glover.
    Oh well, I got the point.

    Caught this one the weekend. I thought this was a pretty bad movie and I did not enjoy it really at all. I actually had trouble finishing it. I thought the guy playing the young Hannibal was pretty bad. I also thought that Rhys Ifans was terribly miscast as the main villain. It certainly isn't a Manhunter or Silence of the Lambs (my favourite Lecter movies).
