Hannibal Rising

I will just say it to get it out of the way, Anthony Hopkins in Hannibal Lecter on the big screen. With no previous knowledge of the character or reading the novel, which was released just a scant four weeks before the film, I may have liked this film. The book was skimpy to say the least and absolutely only written to get another movie in the franchise made. Unfortunately, in the process of making the movie, the film makers left out anything from the novel that made Hannibal even remotely interesting or tolerable. This is even confounded by the fact that Thomas Harris wrote the screenplay.
