View Full Version : Hannibal Rising
I never thought I would be bored watching a Hannibal Lecter film but this (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367959/) was pretty poor. With a decent director and a better lead actor it could have been quite good but I don't recommend it at all. Li Gong (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000084/) looked nice though :D
watching that with a few friends next week..
Might as well see it anyway and i'll post what i think of it too.. (everyones opinions different right!) :D
i enjoyed it... saw it last night as due to my mate running late we missed the beginning of Hot Fuzz, which i wasn't too happy about.
The new Hannibal actor is quite similar to Christian Bale in Batman/American Psycho. But there wasn't much about psychology or anything that makes Hannibal so famous in the later films, it just focuses on him studying medicine. The story was good giving you an insight into how he becomes what he is, but the way he kills people lacked variety.
I'd recommend you go see it if you've seen the others in the series and want to know about his background. It's a nice gory kill-fest, but i don't think it counts as a horror like all the originals were. 5/10 methinks, as i enjoyed it, but it was nowhere near the others.
