Thoroughly distasteful. Not for kids.

Doesn't work as its own individual, self-contained cinematic entity.

Rob Gonsalves

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

Emanuel Levy

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.

Combustible Celluloid

Scott's elegant, shadowy atmosphere and deliberate pacing make the film a delightfully spooky experience.

The weight-watchers script sensibly dispenses with several characters to serve a brew that's enjoyably spicy but low on substance.

There are moments of a good movie buried amongst this over the top thriller. But these moments are all too rare.

Hannibal doesn't grip the audience with the macabre wit and pervasive sense of impending evil of its predecessor

Jim Shelby
Palo Alto Weekly

Where the book kept you wondering and marvelling at the intricacies of the human mind and heart, the film has a sour, smart-alecky conclusion which highlights (what else?) the gore.

RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

Perhaps Scott should have rented out Se7en before he yelled 'action' - the best horror is often what you don't see.

Director Scott has used his considerable talent to dress up this film into an artful, visually impressive affair.

Cinema Sight

Minus all the mystique of Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal has a few interesting scenes, but fails in equal portion.

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.

Hannibal is a beautiful mess. Take your joys when you can because the well is often dry.

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.

Fails to live up to the original: gorier, flashier, funnier, even -- but nowhere near as exciting.

Entertainment Today

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.

For all its blockbuster build-up, beneath the glitter Hannibal is just a big old barfbag full of stupid, steaming Hollywood spew.
