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.
