Hannibal isn't a terrible movie, but it is a disappointment, and more than a small step down from the level of its predecessor.

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

Like liver and brains, a little bit of Hannibal Lecter goes a long way. Put too much on your plate, and it's going to seem bland after a few bites.

The movie lives on borrowed time, and for all the gorgeous scenery, the devilish wit, and the fine performances, the true power of its story has already come and gone.

Like all [Scott's] films, Hannibal is distinctively photographed. But it's dramatically inert.

The Hamlet of Freddy Krueger movies.

You walk out of Hannibal a bit shocked and dazed, but ultimately unsatisfied. It's as if Scott served you an appetizer and a dessert, but forgot the entree.

As pointless an exercise in bloodletting.

Hannibal has atmosphere, intellectualism and an impressive pedigree, but doesn't delve into its characters enough to do justice to its predecessor.
