Hannibal Rising

Has anyone seen it?

I liked all the other, but just don't know about this one.

I'm going to pass. I thought Hannibal (the movie) wasn't very good, but I really loved the remake of Red Dragon. This one just looks ... bad.

I may read the book out of curiosity, despite the reviews I've read basically calling it a stinker.

I read the book. It was really short, and honestly kind of read like Harris was trying to bang something out to make some cash. You know, because "Hannibal sells". I kind of liked it anyway, but that was the impression I got.

There's just something that doesn't seem quite right in making Hannibal have a soft side...the whole chopping off his own hand in the end of Hannibal, for example. The real Hannibal is the guy who gave Graham's home address to Dolarhyde, in Red Dragon. But maybe this isn't so bad, as he hasn't really become Hannibal yet. I mean, avenging his sister is definitely something I can get into, but it doesn't seem like the M.O. of a sociopath like Hannibal Lecter.

Hmm. Maybe I'll pass on the book after all.

I don't want to see a "Hannibal" movie without Anthony Hopkins.

Although the original Manhunter with William Peterson was quite good.

I read the book, and it was nowhere near as good as the others - but I wouldn't call it a "stinker", it had alot to live up to.... and even though I don't think it succeeded, it was still pretty good I'll probably check the film out (if I even get in ) - but from the trailers it doesn't look particularly brilliant.

I'm thinking the same thing.

Seriously, it's one of the worst films I've ever seen. I'm still speechless.

Noone could ever top Anthony Hopkin's portrayal of Hannibal.

As for seeing this latest movie I think Im going to pass. I really enjoyed "Silence Of The Lambs" and the "Red Dragon" remake A LOT. However when it came to "Hannibal" I wasn't impressed with the movie though I really loved the book.

^ I rather enjoyed the Florence part of "Hannibal" but the rest nto so much. I think what hurt it was the bad guys (Verger, Krendler) were so one-dimensionally bad that they lacked depth. What made Red Dragon great was that Dolarhyde wasn't just some maniacal serial killer; you got to see how he was made. I don't mind that type as a side dish as it were, like Chilton in SotL, but as a main course they just won't do.

I agree. Hannibal was a huge disappointment, but Hopkins was still great and Hans Zimmer's soundtrack was amazing as usual. The parts with Julianne Moore sucked.

I liked that Hannibal didn't have the exact same ending as the book, because the ending of the book made me want to throw it across the room.

^ Ya that ending sucked. Is it true Jodie Foster refused to do Hannibal because of the ending, or is that just some urban legend rumor? Jodie Foster >>> Julianne Moore.

I'll probably watch this one... I love the other three specially "Silence of the Lambs". My expectations aren't too high simply because there's no Hopkins... But I'll give it a try...

i saw it, i enjoyed it of course that's partially because the actor is so dang cute

of course it doesn't compare to Silence of the Lambs. It's not going to go down in history as a great film. but I don't regret seeing it.
