No one can deny that Joseph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, and especially Jessica Chastain have made some of the best acting ever in the last decade. All of them have developed their roles to such an extent that they are one of the few, if not the only, actors who can say they have great acting talent. One of the most important factors to successful acting is the ability to make your audience feel something. It is the sole source of excellence in acting. To achieve that, you need a good script and a good director. Sadly, this film cannot even make you feel that way. The film does not hold up the plot and doesn't even go deep enough in the characters to draw any sort of emotion out of them. All it does is show how two men, famous figures, from whom all of us are about to learn something, make a very bad decision and live up to the consequences. How the rest of the world reacts to that is another matter. The acting, the dialog, and the dialogue, it's all a bit wooden. I'm sorry, but that's what it is. Nothing new, nothing interesting, nothing interesting. I didn't really get a sense of the history of the story. What was important? Well, nothing at all. What I did get was a feeling of sadness for how bad the story was. At the end, I felt nothing for the characters. I really couldn't care for any of them. One thing I really liked was the weather. I was happy when it turned sunny. I was sad when it was raining. I was really sad when it was snowing. I liked the overall feel of the film. My only complaint was that I did not like how they made the characters who were relatively dumb. Maybe I just watched the wrong film. I wouldn't be surprised if the film does not even get a PG-13 rating in Canada.

I'm a huge fan of the novel, and I was thrilled when HBO aired this movie, but for me, it lacked some major aspects of the book, namely character development, especially the relationships between characters. I think a lot of the movie's shortcomings are due to the book being a fictional account and the fact that they had to do a lot of research on the characters, just like they did in the book. Unfortunately, I didn't feel that the movie showed the same amount of depth as the novel, as there are so many different characters. They introduced many new ones, and I thought some of the new characters were more interesting than the ones that were in the novel. For example, I really didn't think the character of Josephine was as powerful or interesting as the book made it out to be. As for the new characters, they weren't as developed as the ones that were in the novel. I was so disappointed by the character of Hannibal, because he was so much more interesting than anyone else in the movie. The story of Hannibal Lecter is a great book, but I thought it was being changed in this movie. I know that this was part of the goal of the movie, but I think the book would have been more interesting if it stayed true to the book. I'm not one of those people who is offended by sexual references, but I did find it quite distracting when Hannibal was used to talk about a young girl and her parents. There are so many other lines in the book, and some of them are much more powerful than the ones that were used in the movie. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie, but I think it lacked some of the important parts of the book. I'm not sure why this was so big of a problem, but I hope they will try to do a Hannibal movie in the future. This one was a little disappointing.
