Thoroughly distasteful. Not for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 11, 2009
Doesn't work as its own individual, self-contained cinematic entity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 17, 2007
A dark and complexly entertaining ride, highly generous to multiple viewings.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
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.

May 26, 2006
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.
September 30, 2005
There are moments of a good movie buried amongst this over the top thriller. But these moments are all too rare.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 1, 2005
Pork chops get even!
June 25, 2004
Hannibal doesn't grip the audience with the macabre wit and pervasive sense of impending evil of its predecessor
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 20, 2003
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
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
February 8, 2003
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
January 29, 2003
Minus all the mystique of Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal has a few interesting scenes, but fails in equal portion.
| Original Score: 2/4
January 10, 2003
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.
Full Review | Original Score: B
January 7, 2003
Hannibal is a beautiful mess. Take your joys when you can because the well is often dry.
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 30, 2002
Fails to live up to the original: gorier, flashier, funnier, even -- but nowhere near as exciting.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 21, 2002
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.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
October 21, 2002
Memo to Hollywood: If a little is good, more is not necessarily better.
October 15, 2002
For all its blockbuster build-up, beneath the glitter Hannibal is just a big old barfbag full of stupid, steaming Hollywood spew.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
