Dark and delicious, the way I like my movies.

I know the critics hated it and thought it was a complete waste of time, but the female lead just happened to be my favourite Chinese actress, Gong Li.

And the French actor who played the 16-20yr Hannibal was also quite yummy, if you'll pardon the pun in the context of this movie.

Anyone else seen this?

I thought about seeing this, but the terrible reviews put me off. SOTL is one of my favorite thrillers EVER, and I liked Red Dragon too, so I'm not too keen on having them ruined by a bad prequel. However, now that you say you liked it, my interest is piqued once again. I love Gong Li too--- is she gorgeous or what???

I want to see it, I didnt care for Red Dragon as much as Hannibal or SOTL but, I hope this one will be entertaining at the least.

BTW Liz SOTL is one of my all time faves too! I really am starting to think we were seperated at birth! Very Happy

Good evening, Clarice, I mean Vonstella!^-^

SOTL is such a bitchin, delicious movie! And Hannibal Lector---- is it wrong to have just a teensy little crush on him?

I agree, we were totally separated at birth. Too bad you got all the looks! Razz

Bad Grin I always felt a little weird about that, too.

I think lots of people had a teensy crush on the Hannibal Lector character. It's the danger factor - talk about bad boy to the extreme. For me as a teenager my fantasies were stock standard vampires, and I had a minor crush on Boris Karloff.

My husband and I saw this movie last night, and I loved it! Even my husband liked it a bit, and he hates horror movies. Now I want to read the book!

I do want to see the film, but highly recommend the book - quite compelling and really draws you in. And the book had poor reviews, too. It's the same old thing, though: those who can't do, criticise. I usually find that if the critics (books or films) love it, I hate it and vice versa. Borat received good reviews Confused (not that I would see it whatever anyone said about it).

Is the book an original or is it one of those dupes from the movie type books? If it's an original is it called Hannibal Rising as well? I love these types of movies and books, btw, has anyone seen Perfume - The tale of a Murderer? That movie intrigues me but they're not playing it in Vancouver (or the rest of the province).

I think all of the Hannibal stories were books before they were films. I haven't seen Perfume (the trailers creep me out) but my Father said that the book was good.

I didn't like it. I thought young Hannibal was anything but intimidating, and this movie cannot even come close to SOTL. Then again I'm harsh when it comes to movies.
