Review: Hannibal Rising

Another prequel wasted. Should I blame the writer of the book or the screenwriter ? Oh wait, they are the same person. Well that’s easy. The conclusion is that this movie is as cold as it is boring. While Silence of the Lambs had an utterly interesting psychological duel between Clarice and Hannibal, the followup had already lost that. This origin story is simple and predictable. What’s left is the waiting for the cruel acts from accent-bearing Joker-smile-wearing younger Hannibal. Most of the other “bad” guys overact like their lives depended on it. So I’m sure I can blame the director as well, presenting us with dull visuals and focusing on lame facial expressions. All I can say is, cannibalism is so overrated.4.
