Quid pro quo,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hannibal Lecter Trilogy [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Edward Norton, Jodie Foster & Julianne Moore, their characters stand right next to the high intelligent Hannibal, Anthony Hopkins. Ofcourse Sir Hopkins is the vessel for the whole story. However Norton, Foster & Moore make Hopkins look good. Especially Anthony Heald who plays Dr. Chilton who is an terrible character makes you love Hannibal even if it's a criminal. After Silence of the Lambs, who would have dreamed that "Hannibal "& " Red Dragon " would have the same quality.
Edward Norton does a great job in the prequel Red Dragon & ofcourse Julianne Moore in the last part of the trilogy. However, once more I miss Anthony Heald, he really plays well. He makes you really hate his character & love his patient Dr. Hannibal at the same time. He's an perfect bad guy. Both Jodie as Julianne play an convincing Clarice Starling.
Bottom line, as for this trilogy.....it's a "must have ", it's one of those movies which you can see over & over again. Checking & finding more & more details....speaking of which.......I remember seeing the scene where they actually take out the "bugg" out of the head in the bottle....this particular scene is missing.....comment anyone ?....
For lovers of the subject, there's the pre-prequal Hannibal rising which explains why Hannibal became what he was. It's nice to have the whole story complete so you might want to consider buying that one aswell.
