Ya, I take the critic's reviews with a bit more of a grain of salt these days, but I gave it a try and the flick is pretty much a turd sandwich!

Shame that the source material was rushed because the studio said if Harris didn't give them a Hannibal beginnings story they would write and shoot it without him. He had very little time to push something out, and if I recall the novel pretty much operates as the script versus the source material - as in nothing is further flushed out or anything really from the book. Shitty the studio just tried to cash in on a quick turnaround release of Hannibal, though Harris still has part of the blame laying at his feet for such an abomination.

Rumor has it he does have another book in the Hannibal series planned - but where would that fit in with the shows cannon I haven't a clue.

Really I'm more interested in the series and its creator's fresh take on the Hannibal world and hoping the show will get to run it's course and not simply cancelled by NBC or dicked around with like they seem to do with their quality shows that have yet to find their audience like Community and Parks and Recreation...

Gonna be a long wait for season 2 since last I heard it won't be on until as a midseason replacement, so probably January or February.
