hannibal01Ten years after The Silence of the Lambs comes an opportunity to catch up with FBI agent Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore) and the runaway serial killer Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins), as she is going through a crisis and he is spotted by a daring cop in Florence. This time, the usually dependable screenwriters seemed to care more about spattering the scenery with blood than recreate the intelligent sensibilities that boosted the first movie. The story is a tad sluggish and the character of Hannibal has become another Freddy Krueger, but there are pleasing moments in all this bloody insanity.

2001-U.S. 132 min. Color. Directed by Ridley Scott. Screenplay: Steven Zaillian, David Mamet. Novel: Thomas Harris. Music: Hans Zimmer. Cast: Anthony Hopkins (Hannibal Lecter), Julianne Moore (Clarice Starling), Ray Liotta (Paul Krendler), Giancarlo Giannini, Gary Oldman, Frankie Faison.

Trivia: Co-produced by Scott. Followed by Red Dragon (2002). 

Quote:¬†‚ÄúI must confess to you, I‚Äôm giving very serious thought‚Ķ to eating your wife.‚ÄĚ (Hopkins to Giannini)
