This week's reviewed movie is:
Hannibal Rising




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



His early years of life molded Hannibal Lecter into the monster he becomes. It shows a frightened child in WWII who witnessed the death of his parents and the cannibalistic slaughter of his little sister, vowing to track down the men responsible and seeking revenge.

I found this a fascinating thriller regarding Hannibal's transformation describing how a serial killer is born.

If you're a film freak fan of the Hannibal Lecter character (I've always had a soft spot in my liver for this scary creep) this movie will take you through his childhood up to the final course in his menu of victims.

I guess you could call this a bloody good time. For me, scissors up.

Another movie villain bites the dust!

Apparently, Hannibal Lecter is just another innocent victim of society.

What? No movie can be that bad! But with its bad script, bad acting, and bad directing, you'll be saying, "Yes," a movie can be that bad.

This grisly revenge prequel is so devoid of tension that it turns out to be just plain dull!

What next? Hannibal in rehab?

The movie, Hannibal Rising, is the back story of the childhood of Hannibal Lecher, who grew from a carefree kid to a vengeful monster, hunting down and killing all of the men who murdered his sister, after he became a man.

The problem I had with this film is that they explain too much, making it predictable, and there aren't any twists or surprises.

In my view, prequels to great pictures like The Silence of the Lambs shouldn't be made.
