    I personally loved this movie. Though I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. If you're a fan of the movies I'd consider it worth your time. Though at times you lose the true Lecter feel, it was very good. At first I only thought the movie was ok...then it grew on me. (Plus I loved Rhys Ifans as Grutas) It was very entertaining to watch the transition of a little boy into the cannibal we know and love today. So despite all the bad reviews on this movie, I really enjoyed it.
