The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Hannibal Rising (2007)

Starring: Gaspard Ulliel, Li Gong, Dominic West, Rhys Ifans, Kevin McKidd, Richard Brake
Director: Peter Webber

After his parents are killed by Nazis, a young Hannibal and his baby sister are taken prisoner. The sister does not make it through the harsh winter. Years later, Hannibal moves in with his Aunt and plots revenge on those from the past.

My Take:
The movie goes into Hannibal's past and attempts to add humanity to the character by the harsh realities he faced as a child during WWII. In some aspects it succeeds as the viewer does side with Hannibal even as he falls further into a world of twisted darkness.

Rating: In the middle
