A film so posh, so exquisite in look and sound, that it would hardly seem like a sequel at all if it weren't for the return of Hopkins to the role that made him famous. Goodbye, subterranean rock and roll; hello, opera.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

At its supreme best, Hannibal is a voyage into the depths of existential horror.

Es un filme bastante bien logrado en todos sentidos sin llegar a lo excelso.

Lector fans will get their fill, but be warned that the menu contains at least two scenes with over-the-top excesses that Hannibal himself might not want to swallow.

Shows us that no matter how many right things we do, we'll eventually have to square off with the unappealing side of ourselves.
