STraight out, thumbs up rating. very well acted.

Hannibal is a very well put togeather sequel to "The Silence of the Lambs". This movie follows Clarice and Hannibal 7-10 years after the Good doctors escape from Tennesse, and Clarices now folding carrer in the FBI. Hannibal contacts Clarice, and that starts off a chain of events with....... well, go watch the damned movie.

WHat i loved, was not only the whole movie, but the last 20 minutes. EXCELENT acting. Ray Liota (lets just say, brains, and leave it at that) did some wonderful acting, either he was hpped up in drugs, like morphine, oir it was his natural ability. no matter, it was superb. The interaction between Hannibal and Clarice was very well played out. any qualms about switching actors for Clarice were a waste of time, as Julianne Moore did a wonderful job.

over all, it was a very very good movie. don't see RIGHT after eating though. only one part made me really reach for the popcorn bag as a baf bag, and it was more toward the end. (not the brains part though........ )

out of 10...
9!!!!!

I don't know, something about cannibalism just really turns me off, I don't know what it is.

I also heard that the continuity in the movie is horrible. In one scene a girl's earrings change from hoops to studs back and forth six times. That's awful! Yeah, it's not a movie that I even want to grace the theatres presence for.

I am so not going to see that. I remember a few years back I watched about five minutes of Silence of the Lambs, and it gave me BAD nightmares....

I like Ridley Scott as a Director. He creates films that are full of visual details that draw you into the fantasy on the screen (Alien, Blade Runner) and Hannibal was no exception.

The Brain eating scene was the most shocking part of the book next to the real ending of the story which was changed in the movie (due to the fact that they are planning a sequel to Hannibal). It was in the book for a reason: to show that Lecter is a dangerous loony despite his polished deportment.

What I found interesting is what they left out of the movie: Lecter's origins, the events in his life that triggered his insanity and what really happened to Clarice.

I liked the film, but the book is much better.

"She was now Mrs. Franz Rosencranz.........."
