News & Interviews for Hannibal: Season 3
If Hannibal wasn't already too cerebral for the average horror fan, it may have accidentally stumbled into the muck of pretension... But despite the audience-building challenges Fuller sometimes throws in the path of his monster, it's hard to hate him.
This last run of episodes has been exceptional, adapting Harris's Red Dragon novel with Fuller's distinctive visual flair, and making even the most familiar elements of the Lecter universe feel inspired again.
The meal being served is different, but the chef remains the same. And viewers need not fear what Hannibal cooks up next.
On every level, Bryan Fuller and the team behind Hannibal are elevating what we should expect from network television.
Hannibal enthralls the viewer's aesthetic sense with its stunning photography, sophisticated use of imagery, and breathtaking beauty while at the same time threatening to steal away our soul, dragging it deep into the void.
Audience Reviews for Hannibal: Season 3
The third seasons follow the same great road as the second season did and the show continues to become better and better. Mads Mikkelsen is, once again, reminding us of the reason why he is one of the best actors ever. The thing has been an irritation for me in the previous seasons have been the supporting cast, and unfortunately some of the characters in this season are Freddie Lounds - again - and the new character Reba McClane who could have easily been cut out of this season and I wouldn't have given two s**ts. Mason Verger is again present in this season, this time played by Joe Anderson, and he is actually pretty good. And then we have the magnificent Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde, who kills it in all of his episodes. This is also the first season to have Gillian Anderson as a series regular and she is also pretty good.
Stunning performances all throughout and its shock value still vigorous, this third season suffers from a change of pace, though its intringuing new storylines - while paying homage to its source material - enrich the show, expanding and idealizing the sturdy set of characters Hannibal has been offering since its arresting beginning.
It really is time for Hannibal to rest, season 3 made me yawn with boredom as well as the bad casting and unbelievable plot development. Thank goodness it is cancelled.
