Worst in the series

I am now glad to say that I have seen every Hannibal movie ever made. I guess "Hannibal" is the name of the franchise. This is easily the worst of all these movies and it's so bad even fans of the series hate it. Well, I guess especially fans. This movie starts off by showing Hannibal's origin with how his parents were killed in a crossfire with Nazis. Seems like every origin story involves Nazis nowadays.

His sister gets eaten and he goes on to avenge his sister by training with this woman where he learns how to swordfight. Yeah, the movie suddenly turns into "Batman Begins", a weird situation for Hannibal Lecter. The villains in this movie are so pathetic and unentertaining. This series was known for having some really cool villains, even Mason Verger from the supbar "Hannibal". This movie is stretched out over two hours as well. For me, it's just a waste of time. *1/2

Hannibal Rising isn't a top end block buster, neither is it a bottom dwelling dud. It's definitely above average.

Hannibal Rising (2007)

I've seen The Silence of the Lambs (1991) which is rather unique, and I've seen the follow up Hannibal (2001) which was OK, not as good as its predecessor. I happened to spot Hannibal Rising the DVD (uncut edition) while out shopping and never knew of it's existence. On sale at the give-away price of £1 I decided to give it ago, all the while thinking, it'll probably be rubbish, not to mention it's a prequel, which is something I tend to avoid, as I prefer moving forward, rather than backwards.

While waiting for Hannibal Rising to start, I had less than positive preconceived ideas that I was about to endure a slasher type affair cashing in on the success of The Silence of the Lambs. Much to my surprise, I was completely wrong. The story begins during World War 2 and the film makers have done an impressive job recreating the era. There are tanks, planes, trains, boats, it looks and feels big budget. Far from being a low budget slasher type blood fest cash in, Hannibal Rising looks like a serious drama, and to some degree felt better than The Silence of the Lambs. The cast do a good job, although I did find Hannibal Lecter (Gaspard Ulliel) possibly too clean cut, stylish for the part. There is a slightly polished possibly over stylised look to the film, giving it a slightly Harry Potter adventure vibe. I won't described the story here, as many others here on IMDb already have.

Hannibal sinking

After the death of his parents during WW2, the young Hannibal goes to live with his rich and beautiful Japanese aunt in Paris, and there begins to plan how to take revenge on the men who killed his younger sister.

The movie suggests that Hannibal's trauma began here when he watched the soldiers kill, cook and eat his sister, which, as I recall, goes against what was said in one of the other films: that it was not possible to classify Hannibal neither as a psychopath nor as a sociopath precisely because there is no identifiable trauma, being just pure evil, or am I confused?

The film is very mediocre and was only made to steal the last dollars of the unwary who still follow the franchise. In this movie, in addition to becoming a doctor and a cannibal (as everyone knows), he also learns to be a ninja from his aunt. Yeah, you read that right, Hannibal is also a ninja.

Oh well... I'll just rewatch "The Silence of the Lambs" and pretend the rest of the franchise does not exist.
