About the Movie

Based on the best selling novel by Thomas Harris, "Hannibal" continues the story begun in "The Silence of the Lambs." Seven years have passed since Dr. Hannibal Lecter escaped from custody, seven years since FBI Agent Clarice Starling interviewed him in a maximum-security hospital for the criminally insane. The doctor is now at large in Italy, pursuing his own interests, savoring the scents, the essences of the unguarded world. But Starling has never forgotten her encounters with Dr. Lecter – his seldom-used voice still haunts her dreams. Mason Verger remembers Dr. Lecter as well, and is obsessed with revenge. Verger was Dr. Lecter’s sixth victim, and although hideously disfigured, he survived. In order to draw Dr. Lecter into the open, Verger uses Clarice Starling as bait.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Silly though handsomely staged. – Elvis Mitchell, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Hannibal won't even be a footnote when the year's best movies are grabbing the ink in December. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Very likely the worst film of this year and quite possibly the next. – Charles Taylor,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: There are disgusting movies that are worth seeing -- Silence of the Lambs, for one -- and others that are merely disgusting. Then there's Hannibal, which exists in its own category. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 7, 2010

Good but not great

Now don't get me wrong this is a great movie and Anthony Hopkins returns and does a stunning job as Hannibal, but it just isn't as good as Silence of the Lambs. I suggest seeing that first and then consider this.

good but not great

this movie is good but it doesn't really live up to its predacessor Silence Of The Lambs. iTunes you really need to get the movie Silence Of The Lambs I'm begging you.
