3.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as you might think, July 6 2007
This review is from: NEW Hannibal Rising (DVD) (DVD)
This is a fairly enjoyable enactment of Hannibal Lecter's early days growing up in the throes of world war 2. We learn how he becomes a cannibal, why he became a doctor and the reasons for his insanity. The film is entertaining and we actually pull for Lecter to gain revenge over the war criminals who ate his sister alive. His asian love interest, played by the beautiful Gong Li, is heartstopping and one of the major reasons to watch this movie. I would say that this is a necessary entry in the series, and a good profiling of Hannibal Lecter's early days. The major downside is the performance of the lead who plays Hannibal Lecter, an otherwise unknown actor who delivers an awful performance. if you can get over that, you should enjoy this film.
