This review is from: Hannibal - Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
This series shouldn't have worked. A prequel to the classic films Manhunter (which somehow seems to keep being forgotten when people talk about Hannibal films) and The Silence Of The Lambs, this dark crime thriller/horror series is turning out to be almost as good as those classic films this sees FBI criminal profiler Will Graham on the verge of cracking up after going into the minds of one too many serial killers get referred to the FBI's psychiatrist, Doctor Hannibal Lecter and together they help the FBI go after some of the most dangerous criminals and serial killers around not knowing that Doctor Lecter who has taken the daughter of a dead serial killer under his wing and manipulating her for his own dark purposes and that Doctor Lecter himself is the most dangerous killer of them all. Mads Mikkelsen is excellent as Hannibal, turning in a darker performance than Anthony Hopkins who was threatening to turn Hannibal into a cartoon villain ever did as this series explores how Hannibal gets caught by the FBI with excellent performances from Hugh Dancy as Will taking over the role from William Petersen and Ed Norton and Laurence Fishbourne as the head of the FBI Jack Crawford. One of the most chilling tv shows around at the moment.
