Hannibal Rising

Factual error: Hannibal makes a bomb using latex gloves that were not in use during the early 50's when the movie takes place. (01:28:35)

Factual error: In the scene where a young Hannibal dissects the corpses in the mortuary, there is a black and white coronal MRI slice cutting through eye-balls and fronal lobes of the brain on the wall. MRI was invented in the 70s.

Continuity mistake: Hannibal incinerates Zigmas Milko's dead body with his (Milko's) dog tag in his (Milko's) mouth. When Hannibal confronts Grutas while he (Grutas) is bathing, Hannibal tosses a dog tag at him, which should be Grutas' own. Soon after however, the camera shows the very same dog tag that was supposed to have been incinerated with Milko: "Zigmas Milko 03402810 3/ INFRGT33". (01:28:25 - 01:30:55)

More trivia for Hannibal Rising

Question: Hannibal is shot in the back, then turned over as the villian plunges a knife into Hannibal's thigh three times, saying, "He's paralysed, he can't feel this." But Hannibal stands up and is perfectly fine. There's no damage from the bullet or the knife. How is this possible?

Chosen answer: Hannibal has the Japanese dagger on his back, and when he gets it out you can see there is a bullet hole on it indicating that the bullet hit the dagger. Grutas just pokes Hannibal in the leg with the knife, he doesn't actually stab him, it doesn't even tear his clothes.
