Scott does justice to The Silence of the Lambs and the character of Hannibal in general, even without a few key pieces, and despite toning Harris's novel down plenty.

Part of the appeal of the Hannibal Lecter novels and films is the complexity of the principal character, who is at once a reprehensible murderer and a moral force for justice.

The story line of Hannibal is far less interesting than Silence of the Lambs and lacks the emotional subtlety of its predecessor. However, Hannibal is visually and aurally sumptuous, powered by Hans Zimmer's lovely score and brimming with flashy imagery.

A dark and complexly entertaining ride, highly generous to multiple viewings.

October 10, 2006
The near-impossible taks and insurmountable problems have been handled by Scott in a proficient if unexciting way. Aware that he can't possibly meet viewers' expectations, Scott has made a different film, more florid, baroque, and tongue-in-cheek.

Scott's elegant, shadowy atmosphere and deliberate pacing make the film a delightfully spooky experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
February 9, 2006
The weight-watchers script sensibly dispenses with several characters to serve a brew that's enjoyably spicy but low on substance.

Pork chops get even!
March 5, 2003
Perhaps Scott should have rented out Se7en before he yelled 'action' - the best horror is often what you don't see.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Director Scott has used his considerable talent to dress up this film into an artful, visually impressive affair.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Hannibal is not quite what I'd call a 'good' movie, but it could so easily have been worse in countless ways that I'm more than satisfied by the way it turned out.

December 8, 2002
More character study than thriller, it can stand on its own merits. It's probably not exactly what you wanted, but it just might be enough.

No wonder lesser minds hate this movie: it's radically different from Silence -- a bloody, suspense-driven, darkly comedic love story between good and evil, a florid, grandiose thriller manifesto on why polar extremes need each other to survive.

One of the greatest sequels in cinematic history.

At its supreme best, Hannibal is a voyage into the depths of existential horror.

Es un filme bastante bien logrado en todos sentidos sin llegar a lo excelso.

Lecter continua a ser uma figura fascinante...

April 20, 2001
Lector fans will get their fill, but be warned that the menu contains at least two scenes with over-the-top excesses that Hannibal himself might not want to swallow.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Well-sustained tension throughout.
