Ten years have passed since FBI agent Clarice Starling faced the ingenious Dr. Hannibal Lecter... ten years of watching, wondering and waiting. But now the wait is over. The sophisticated killer re-emerges in Florence, Italy, ready to entice Clarice into their old game of cat-and-mouse. Yet she isn't the only one interested in capturing him. Another mind with a dubious motive - ravenous vengeance - also wishes to stake his claim to the enigma that is Hannibal. But of these three brilliant minds, whose cunning will prevail? Only one thing is certain. Hannibal is "as compelling a film as you will ever see" (Joel Siegel, "Good Morning America")!

***ONLY A LITTLE SPOILER***

The sequel to 'Silence of the Lambs' is a strong, creepy and beautiful story of the sophisticated killer and anti-hero Hannibal Lecter. The story brings us to Florence, where the beautiful city is in perfect contrast with the evil and admirable Lecter. It is the evil within the beauty. This also comes to sight in Lecter's 'Romeo & Juliet'-like relationship with Clarice Starling. Towards the end he asks her: "Would ever say 'stop'... If you love me, you'd stop?"; the beauty within the evil.

The acting is superb, though Julianne Moore sometimes struggles with Jodie Foster's unfair legacy as Clarice Starling. Moore is not as strong on screen as Foster was, but what does it matter? The story is NOT about Clarice Starling, but about Hannibal Lecter; Clarice got her story told in 'Silence of the Lambs', and with 'Hannibal' we get a story about this fascination figure Hannibal Lecter. 'The Starling Story, part II' was never the intention (or the need).
Hopkins is simply great! With such calmness, stylish taste of art, and sophisticated evil, he brings more life to the character than any actor could ever do.
Gary Oldman is a great choice as the vengeful Mason Verger. He does a great job, and the character is even more evil than Hannibal himself.

The score done by Hans Zimmer is frightening and disturbing when it has to be. But it's also beyond beautiful; it's filled with such emotion and sensibility, which will leave you almost crying, especially during the opera sequence - Again, the beauty against the beast.

My only small catch with the film is a special scene towards the end. It is so sickening and gross but completes the terrifying picturing of Hannibal the Cannibal.

'Hannibal' is a beautiful horror film. It should not be watched by the ones, who expect graphic violence, blood and more blood. Sure it has it scenes, but it's not the main focus.

'Hannibal' is within no doubt one of the most underrated films of all time. It has great acting, a strong story, beautiful locations, emotionally strong moments, a beautiful score and the indirectly manipulation psychological horror, which we all love the sophisticated cannibal for.

 My favourite film...

Along with The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal is my favourite film!
People say that "its not as good because Jodie Foster isn't in it".
Fair enough but you cannot change that! I think Julianne Moore does a splendid job in capturing all that is Clarice Starling. You should remember not to base judgement on Jodie Foster, but the Clarice Starling in the Thomas Harris novels!
The end scene is simply genius! Ridley Scott does an amazing job in capturing the love between Hannibal and Clarice and the film has some of the best lines of any film, ever!

I say buy it! Even if you don't enjoy it, or think you won't, its one of those films you have to watch before you die, so why not now!?

 Well hello Clarice

Hannibal is so much better than silence of the lambs julliane Moore is much better than Jodie foster has a much better sotoryline than the first, it you must watch the first movie to be ale to understand hannibal, fantastic ending but the ending is certainly not for the faint hearted though.

Hannibal has to be one of the best movies ever made!! The alternate ending,deleted scenes and the directors comentary make it a enjoyable film you can watch over and over! I have seen it over 10 times and know all the scenes of by heart and I never get bored watching it! The twisted love story between Clarice and Hannibal make it A brilliant film and an absoloute classic!!
