Yes, he's back, and he's still hungry. Ten years after The Silence of the Lambs, Dr. Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter (Anthony Hopkins, reprising his Oscar-winning role) is living the good life in Italy, studying art and sipping espresso. FBI agent Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore, replacing Jodie Foster), on the other hand, hasn't had it so good--an outsider from the start, she's now a quiet, moody loner who doesn't play bureaucratic games and suffers for it. A botched drug raid results in her demotion--and a request from Lecter's only living victim, Mason Verger (Gary Oldman, uncredited), for a little Q and A. Little does Clarice realize that the hideously deformed Verger--who, upon suggestion from Dr. Lecter, peeled off his own face--is using her as bait to lure Dr. Lecter out of hiding, quite certain he'll capture the good doctor.

Taking the basic plot contraptions from Thomas Harris's baroque novel, Hannibal is so stylistically different from its predecessor that it forces you to take it on its own terms. Director Ridley Scott gives the film a sleek, almost European look that lets you know that, unlike the first film (which was about the quintessentially American Clarice), this movie is all Hannibal. Does it work? Yes--but only up to a point. Scott adeptly sets up an atmosphere of foreboding, but it's all buildup for anticlimax, as Verger's plot for abducting Hannibal (and feeding him to man-eating wild boars) doesn't really deliver the requisite visceral thrills, and the much-ballyhooed climatic dinner sequence between Clarice, Dr. Lecter, and a third unlucky guest wobbles between parody and horror. Hopkins and Moore are both first-rate, but the film contrives to keep them as far apart as possible, when what made Silence so amazing was their interaction. When they do connect it's quite thrilling, but it's unfortunately too little too late. --Mark Englehart

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets better with each viewing 10 Aug 2007
In this film, the character of Hannibal Lecter reveals more about possibly his most interesting characteristic, his cultured and refined tastes than in any of the other films. His loathing of ill manners and his love of classical opera and art are interesting to behold and form a juxtaposition to his darker side. He shows again that he is a consumate killer and possesses an ability to pre-empt the moves of his enemies. In the hands of a lesser actor, this mix may not have been pulled off with qiuite so much success but Hopkins does it very well indeed.

Possibly one of the most memorable aspects of this film is the score. The music in the film is exquisite with many of the large scale operatic pieces being written for this film directly.

When I first saw this film, I was dissapointed as following Hannibal's escape in Silence of the Lambs, I expected that he might go on a killing spree in this film. To expect this is to underestimate the intelligence of the character. He is not the seedy opportunist slasher in the mould of Michael Myers, he is a man who loves the exotic fragrances of the best perfume houses of Paris, the views of the Duomo in Florence, the taste of fine food and wine. The benefit of seeing the film a few times and of age have revealed that upon escape, Hannibal would have sought out safety abroad, create a new identity for himself and generally keep a low profile so that he can indulge in his passions. It is only when he is challenged and cornered or exacts revenge for ill manners shown to Clarice that his darker side for which he is more notorious emerges.

The film gets better with every viewing. The cinematography and direction is first rate as one would expect from Ridley Scott and all these factors combine to make Hannibal an extremely worthy film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I remember it 20 Nov 2006
I went to see this film in when it came out at the cinema and didn't think much of it then but after watching it again I have changed my opinion of it and now quite like it. The film follows on ten years after the events in `Silence of the Lambs' with Hannibal Lecter on the run and Clarice Starling charged with hunting him down in order to redeem herself after a raid she was leading went wrong. However a former victim of Lecter out for revenge and an Italian detective looking for the reward money make things difficult for Special Agent Starling. Anthony Hopkins is brilliant as always and Julianne Moore fills Jodie Foster's shoes admirably. I am not sure how close it is to the book but it is a good film nonetheless and anyone who enjoyed Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon should like Hannibal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great transfer of the greatest Lecter movie 16 Sep 2009
By The usual suspect TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'm in the minority but I think Hannibal is the best Lecter. Silence of the Lambs is great but it's Dr Lecter that steals the show with his limited scenes. Here we have Hannibal free and roaming around in his own movie. And where do we see him? Beautiful Florence in the first half of the movie!

On the other side of the lense we have Ridley Scott (doing a sequel!) and those that surround him are Julianna Moore, Gary Oldman and Ray Liotta. Anthony Hopkins gets to have a bit more fun with character this time reprising the chillingness of SOTL but with added zest too, 'Okey Dokey'. Some may not like this but the guy isn't in a cell anymore so it should be expected!

Better cast, better director, an equal storyline, more shocking scenes in a beautiful surrounding. What more could we ask for? 'Bowels in or bowels out?', this is a movie of beauty.

The Blu-Ray transfer is excellent. 90% of the scenes are top knotch, especially the opera. There are the odd slightly rough looking dark scenes but still very acceptable as HD.

Languages: English DTS HD Master; French and Spanish DTS surround

Subs: French, Spanish, Korean, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Dutch, Greek, Norwegian, Portuguese, Traditional Mandarin

Format:VHS Tape
There are so many people who have seen this film who say it is a disappointment. Frankly, they must have had their eyes closed or the TV turned off not to appreciate how good this film is. In my opinion.
Many judge it on the grounds of it being a horror film, and compare it to 'Silence...', which is a bad start to begin with.
Hannibal is nothing like "Silence...", mainly because it's all about Hannibal, and how he is being hunted by one of his surviving victims, who wants a bloody revenge for what Hannibal did to him (persuaded him, while he was under narcotic influence, to peel his own face of with some glass).
Hannibal is not really a horror film as such either, so it is rather silly to judge it on those pre-defined stereotypical horror film terms.
It is true, however, that Hannibal is not as outrightly indimidating as he is in "Silence...", but rather more ambiguous - you never quite know how he will react in certain situations. Bear in mind that he is in hiding. He has to count his blessings and refrain from doing things which will attract attention to himself, which explains why he's not beating and eating everyone he meets - there'd be no one left in Florence and he'd put on about 20 stone in weight! Of course this does not stop him from creating some trouble when he finds out about the plot to capture him.
Clarice is having a hard time in the FBI, being blocked by that pain in the neck Krendler at every turn, and is generally fed up. Yes she is no longer a timid trainee, because she's been forced to be tough and make the best of what she can (or is allowed to) achieve. Even when she's been booted out she does her job - this is the admirable Clarice Starling at her best, never giving up.
Hannibal grows ever more obsessed with Clarice, and Clarice with Hannibal.
