If Hannibal had really been schooled in Japanese sword art, regardless of hand dominance, he'd have been holding the sword handle (tsuka) with his right hand on top and his left hand below. The Japanese always draw with their right hand. See more »
every time I give people the benefit of the doubt ... they go ans screw it up by saying something stupid. when I went to see 'Hannibal Rising' those around me in the theater were no different.
"I thought this was supposed to be about that Hannibal Lecter dude." this is the kind of crap I heard around me, and of course I turned and 'shushed' them ... but come on ... what did you expect people? this movie is about how Hannibal got STARTED, there is no Anthony Hopkins, no other serial killers, NOTHING that makes it like the other 3 movies (yes I know there are 4 but I don't want to see Brian Cox as Lecter) so why would you go in and expect it to be like them. it is a story, not a copy of the other 3 movies ... so seriously, if you are going to go see this movie, expect a good story, some pretty good acting from most of the people involved, a few bloody scenes, and a very disturbing beginning to the life of Lecter.
if you go in expecting anything else, you are just wasting your time.
