Giving up the intelligence and complexity of The Silence of the Lambs for more standard horror movie thrills with absurb violence. A real shame. While Hopkins, Oldman and Liotta are quite good the plot itself is actually rather bland.

Though opting for grossfest, this is exactly the kind of Hannibalsploitation you'd fear from a sequel. Part supernatural being, scaring Haitians and dogs, part dirty old annoying man, stalking Starling and rambling about what kind of bird she is. Ridley Scott was a wrong choice for director: He likes his women strong and so, the balance between the delicate Starling and the horrendous Lector is ruined. Ironically this displays what a fragile concept Hannibal is.

Huge disappointment after the brilliance that was The Silence of the Lambs. I don't necessarily fault the actors - if you likes Hopkins in Silence you'll like him here - so much as the script. Julianne Moore's problem isn't so much that she isn't Jodie Foster so much as it is that the novel this film is based upon mutilated the character she plays until unrecognizable. Even though the writers toned down the ending, they couldn't salvage the dreck that was the novel. A true shame.

Good god almighty this was a horrible idea. Hannibal is almost set up like a slasher film. Ray Liotta is pretty terrible and campy as well. He's also in one gory scene that is so ridiculous that it has to be seen at least once. This combines numerous decent actors into one silly shitpile of a film. David Mamet's writing never seemed more ridiculous than in this nonsense.

Scott unwisely portrays Lecter as the hero (with flowing cape no less!) thereby diluting his menace and robbing us the guilty pleasure of rooting for the villain. An average plot leading to a stupid ending, cements this film as pointless and unsatisfying.

I liked it more than most people seem to like it, so it gets a solid rating. The scene where he cuts the top of Ray Liotta's head and eats his brain is pretty much one of the best scenes ever.

Perhaps I should give this another go since Oldman is in it. I generally like horror and I love the character of Lecter, but I just don't like to see Ray Liotta hurt.

Totally unnecessary. Hannibal is only really frightening when he's still something of an enigma. Having him step out of the shadows robs him of his mystique and makes for a dull film.

Boring, lacks the darkness and dread that "Silence of the Lambs" was full of, and of course, Clarice is nothing without the amazing Jodi Foster... sorry Julianne Moore.

If you can avoid comparing it to "Silence of the Lambs" this can certainly be appreciated. Hopkins is still great as Lecter and Scott brings a lot of visual flair to the proceedings... the scenes in Florence are particulary memorable. Less frightening, more grand guignol, but still worth the time.

Hannibal is a mediocre sequel to it's far superior predecessor 'The Silence of the Lambs'. Anthony Hopkins gives another compelling performance and Gary Oldman, Ray Liotta and Giancarlo Giannini are all worthy additions. However Julianne Moore is an unsatisfying replacement for the absent Jodie Foster. Hannibal swaps the slow mounting tension of it's predecessor for less effective and exposed gore. It is interesting and chilling but occasionally dull and very average by Ridley Scott's standards.

Any sequal to "Silence of the Lambs" is going to have a hard time comparing to the original. Sadly the book, "Hannibal" is not much better than the movie. Juianna Moore is a good actress, but she's no Jodie Foster. Still worth seeing.

The very good acting and direction mean that I didn't regret that I watched this, and yes, there are some entertainingly wacky, random goings-on in this movie. But honestly, this lacks all the actual emotional impact and investment of the rest of the series. I haven't read the book, but I feel like the story just isn't very good, as it really is beautifully filmed, and very well acted (kudos to Julianne Moore for taking an iconic role and making it her own).

With regard to horror sequels, there have been worse defamations (Psycho, Exorcist), but this is one that most pointedly shows how much American horror has changed for the worst and, in 2010, the permanency of this shift from suspense to gore.

A huge step down from Silence of the Lambs. Characters are flat and one-dimensional. Even though Lecter is still played by Anthony Hopkins his irresistible charm and intelligence is gone. Seems that the main goal of Scott was to gross everyone out. Well, the film is successful at that, but I was expecting something better than just a genre film.

While Silence of the Lambs concentrated on the police procedural and coming of age side of the story, Hannibal is a grand guignol that focuses on the beloved killer. It embraces over the top ridiculousness, and succeeds quite well at it. Ridley Scott does a fine job of adapting the novel, which was almost a flipoff to demanding fans.

Enjoyed Hopkin's performance more here than in Silence, because his hamminess fits with the silliness of the script. This was never gonna be a great film, but its biggest failure is in not being as over-the-top as the book. I understand a lot had to be trimmed, but it loses out in not including Verger's butch sister, & Lecter's & Starling's happily ever after.

Hannibal is not a waste of your time if you enjoyed Anthony Hopkins' performance in The Silence of the Lambs and want to see more from him. It is, however, not worth watching if you want a solid plot, because it's all over the map here. The relationship between Lecter and Clarice gets more development, but the psychological battle between the pair is all but gone, and the only suspense comes either at the end or with Giannini's character. It's only truly worth your time for Hopkins.

I love Hopkins' portrayal of Hannibal Lechter, but this movie has one of the most disturbing scenes I have ever witnessed in film! The image still haunts me. I think they went WAY over the line! I was shocked Hopkins and Ray Liotta went along with it. I won't describe the scene. If you've seen it, you know. If you haven't, I recommend skipping the movie and seeing Red Dragon instead.

Not terrible, but it's impossible not to compare Hopkins performances here, and while that's unfair, it's no less impossible. The original is legitimately one of the great performances in movie history.

If there was anything special or unique about "Silence of the Lamps", it's not present in "Hannibal", a mostly formulaic and uninspired thriller. Much of the original's fascination stemmed from the intense interaction between the protagonists, but here, it has been reduced to some cliché quips. Scott does an adequate job in the director's chair, but can't match Demme's visual splendor. Hopkins was scarier behind the glass/Moore is misrecast/I like Liotta better when he's not eating his brain.

Here we have a sequel with Hopkins returning as the ever intelligent, sick and twisted Hannibal; but Foster is not back as her great character which hinders the film a bit. The story is a little lacking, but they do add a few little gory tidbits.

Ridley Scott directed one of my favorite movies of all time (Alien) and another movie that I really love (Black Hawk Down). Aside from those, he's directed a bunch of movies that I either haven't seen or don't care for. He took one of the most intense, intriguing mystery/thrillers of all time and made a sequel that could put a speed freak to sleep. If you can make it to the "Ray Liotta eating pieces of his own exposed brain scene," you may want to laugh or cry. Both are acceptable reactions.

'Silence of the Lambs' was a REALLY tough act to follow, but I think this movie does a decent job. The casting is great--while her take on the character is different, I think Julianne Moore was an excellent choice for Starling, and I've always found Ray Liotta just as creepy and vaguely smarmy as the books made him out to be. And Gary Oldman...like 5th Element, just wow.

Overstuffed plot, tacky direction and cinematography, and a strange fetishism for it's score and soundtrack - which doesn't help distract the audience that what is happening on screen is tacky as fuck. Like an airport thriller, but inexplicably more grotesque. One could argue it's a excellent camp rendition of the character but that would be giving this too much credit.

Sadly not greater than the sum of its parts, but also not as bad as many make it out to be. Surely, silence of the lambs outshines it in every aspect, but that is quite a benchmark and hopkins still delivers as the charismatic dr. lecter, even though he often lacks his previous finesse.

This installment in the Hannibal series is a much bloodier more graphic addition to the series. The casting of the movie was great, especially Gary Oldman, who always brings his best to any part. The cinematography was great and the locations really were well chosen. The back and forth between Italy and Virginia really helped make the scenes bright and colorful. The parts in Italy really helped bring Hannibal's eccentric love of the classical world to life.

A DELICIOUS movie! Anthony Hopkins, Gary Oldman, and Julianne Moore are phenomenal in this film. If you like serial killer flicks about cannibalistic crazies, you can't top this one! Ray Liotta is a sick, mean, twisted fuck who gets his head handed to him... almost literally. Hannibal appeals to anyone who enjoys being disgusted but amused at the same time. I could watch this twisted film any day of the week! Giancarlo Giannini is superb here as well. Ridley Scott directs this beauty.

Definitely not the most worthy sequel to Silence of the Lambs; the dramatic power wasn't really brought back into the franchise until Red Dragon. Still, (SPOILER ALERT) boars bred to eat people, Gary Oldman with a ripped up face, and a guy being forced to eat his own brain...points for matching the grotesque nature of its predecessor! Story was very weak on Sterling's end, but then again, the movie's not called Sterling, is it?
