Anthony Hopkins returns as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, one of the world's most cunning and feared serial killers, who resurfaces after a decade in hiding to toy with FBI agent Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore). As Starling's career flounders thanks to a drug bust gone wrong, Lecter attempts to elude a greedy Italian police detective (Giancarlo Giannini) who's willing to alert the authorities to his presence in Florence for a price. In the meantime, a maimed but wealthy former victim of Lecter's named Mason Verger (Gary Oldman) plots to get his revenge on the doctor in a most unusual and grisly fashion. The novel by Thomas Harris was adapted for director Ridley Scott by David Mamet and Steven Zaillian.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Patricia Kim O'Cone
Sir Anthony Hopkins returns for seconds as Hannibal Lecter, the celebrated psychopath he introduced to popular culture in Jonathan Demme's Oscar-winning Silence of the Lambs 1991. This third film culled from author Thomas Harris's series of books -- Lecter first appeared in Michael Mann's Manhunter 1986 -- finds Ridley Scott behind the camera, and the Gladiator director gives the horrific feast a European flair. Julianne Moore Magnolia takes over as FBI agent Clarice Starling, stepping into shoes made comfortable by Jodie Foster in Silence. Starling hasn't had it so well since we last saw her: A failed drug raid has resulted in her demotion, while Dr. Lecter has become a Renaissance man in Italy, surrounded by the finest of arts, fashion, and, er, food. But Lecter soon finds his fugitive vacation threatened by a triad of greed: Surviving Lecter victim Mason Verger Gary Oldman, uncredited wants revenge, Italian policeman Pazzi Giancarlo Gianni knows too much, and dirty FBI agent Paul Krendler Ray Liotta trades on Starling's access to Hannibal for his own political means. As Starling attempts to distill this less-than-gourmet stew, Hannibal once again functions as her confidant, his cat-and-mouse games from Silence dropped for an almost affectionate display as Starling's father figure. With a pulpy and grotesquely comical script cowritten by David Mamet and Steven Zaillian, Hannibal is much gorier than its predecessors; but thanks to Hopkins's mesmerizing way with the character, it still tastes good 'til the last bite.
New York Times - Elvis Mitchell
[Anthony] Hopkins is the draw here...Lecter lingers over the last word of every sentence, making a flourish of each utterance; it's as if he bows every time he speaks. His courtliness in the somber, lush Florence should be funnier, but the unremitting and airtight grimness of the material is hard to beat.

    This movie could have been better.

    I believe that Hannibal could have been written a lot better. After reading the book, I watched the movie to see how closely the book and the movie were. That was a mistake. I ended up finding out that there were many plot holes and missing sections in the story. Even one of the characters, Mason Verger¿s sister, who played some pretty important roles in the book, was absent from the movie. It did have some of the major events though. This movie really should have been made into a two-disc set so they could fit more of the scenes in, and follow the story line more closely. This movie was a real disappointment for me, and I wouldn¿t suggest reading the book then watching it. If I had not read the book, it would have been a lot better.

    Try Something New !

    How often do you do something you haven't done before? How often do you do something you have done before, but in a new way? Probably not very often. Humans are creatures of habit, establishing behavior patterns and then repeating them without thinking about it. Many of our behaviors are so 'automatic' that we could reasonably be described as 'automatons' (robots). This is unfortunate because these behavior patterns are limiting. They prevent us from achieving our full potential as human beings. Hannibal Lecter knows this. He also understands how to break free of these behavior patterns. Personal transformation is Lecter's specialty. The secrets of personal transformation (and salvation and authentic religious states of consciousness) are hidden within the Hannibal Lecter movies. If you would be free, if you would claim your birthright as a human being, if you would take your place on Mount Olympus, study these movies and learn what Hannibal knows. It will be difficult. But if all else fails, just do as Hannibal does and eat the rude (rood!).

    Lecter (Hopkins) is as evil as ever in this movie franchise!

    Lecter (Hopkins) is as evil as ever in this movie franchise! I mean sure critics say Hannibal isn't as good as The Silence of The Lambs. But I say it's the best of the two. Why? Because less Agent Starling and more Hannibal. Although the end is a bit over the top.

    A Great Series of Movies

    Hannibal was a really good movie. I just saw it on DVD the other day and it was even better then i remembered (maybe thats because this time i knew when to close my eyes). There was a lot more blood then in silence of the lambs, and that last scene was really freaky. This is a really good movie if u like gore, but i think that silence was better because of the psychological interplay between hopkins and foster. I'm hoping the chemistry between Ed Norton and Hopkins will be just as good in the Red Dragon (the pre-quel coming out soon). You just gotta love anthony hopkins as Hannibal ''the Cannibal'' Lecter, he is just so good at being bad.

    A good movie but not as good as Silence of the Lambs!

    Hannibal has great a sense of drama but it wasn't as good as the Silence of the Lambs. Ridley Scott did an ok job as director of the film but he is no Jonathan Demme. Anthony Hopkins is great as Hannibal ''the Cannibal'' Lecter but for Juliane Moore, I will make an exception. Juliane Moore is no Jodie Foster. She is ok as Clarice Starling but no one can compare to Jodie Foster's performance as Starling. Gary Oldman is just as good as Anthony Hopkins in playing the hideously deformed Mason Verger but Ray Liotta's acting is debateable. Hannibal is a good film but not as pschological as the Silence of the Lambs. Hannibal is a good film though with a good cast(not a great cast except Anthony Hopkins and Gary Oldman). Despite this, the film is a great film for those who love the drama and gore that makes up Hannibal.

    The best of the series

    Add another to the list of great movies from Ridley Scott. Hannibal is probably the best in the series. A better, more engaging story than Silence of the Lambs and beyond Manhunter in every way, Hannibal is both a beautiful and entertaining film. Is it because of great performances from Anthony Hopkins, Julianne Moore, and Gary Oldman? Or is it the masterful direction of Ridley Scott? Either way, this is a highly entertaining movie that is fun to watch again and again. And the ending in the movie is more believable than the ending in the book

    Was footage removed from the DVD?

    First, I will admit this movie is one of the best to hit the screen in quite awhile. From the beauty and majesty of the cinematography to the climactic ending, each aspect of the film was spectacular. The one thing I am curious about is the absence of some footage from the lobotomy scene. If I remember correctly, the film I viewed in the theater contained extra footage of Hannibal actually cutting away the frontal lobe. Am I going insane? Did I imagine this scene? Where did it go? Is this or is it not the ¿Director¿s Cut?¿

    Cool Girl!!!

    Julianne Moore is one of the best actresses that i'd recomend to play the part of Clarice because she smart, strong, and she got guts.Shes my favorite actress of all time besides Jodie Foster, that girl is my second favorite for her part in Silence of the lambs as the original Clarice Starling.
