Plot:

The final chapter of the Dr. Hannibal Lecter quadrilogy, the murdering cannibal. He is presently in Italy, and works as a curator at a museum. Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore), the F.B.I. Agent who he aided to apprehend a serial killer, was placed in charge of an operation, but when one of her men botches it, she’s called to the mat by the Bureau. One high ranking official, Paul Krendler (Ray Liotta) has it in for her. But she gets a reprieve because Mason Verger (Gary Oldman), one of Lecter’s victims who is looking to get back at Lecter for what Lecter did to him, wants to use Starling to lure him out. When Lecter sends her a note, she learns that he’s in Italy, so she asks the Police to keep an eye out for him. But a corrupt Policeman, who wants to get the reward that Verger placed on him, tells Verger where he is, but they fail to get him. Later, Verger decides to frame Starling, which makes Lecter return to the U.S., and the race to get Lecter begins.

    I read the book Silence of the Lambs, and I liked it a lot! I was driven to do so because I was a huge fan of the movie. Same thing with the book Hannibal. I still think Silence—which was the first movie of this franchise—unlike the books; in that case, Red Dragon came first, followed by Silence. Anyway, Hannibal is a great movie! Considering the comments for this film are probably evenly divided between negative reviews and positive ones, I disagree with those who not only completely shun the film, but also call the acting bad or atrocious. I also don’t consider the acting better than the first movie. Jodie Foster rocked in that movie, and so did Anthony Hopkins. While I was disappointed that Foster didn’t return for this one, I thought Julianne Moore was a terrific choice to take over the role of Clarice Starling! Ridley Scott was an excellent choice for director when it came to this film. I had, for years, been a big fan of his horror classic Alien and its sequels, which was why I thought the studio couldn’t have made a better choice for a director! The film was also well-written, ultimately being much more faithful to the book than it could’ve been. The ending was the biggest difference, but that’s okay. It really seemed to work for the movie. The plot is brilliantly inventive for a thriller, making Hannibal, in my opinion, almost as malevolent as he was in the first movie; at the same time, the story gives him an enemy, a surviving, disfigured victim of Hannibal’s, whose bloodlust for revenge makes him a terrifying nemesis, both for Hannibal AND for Clarice Starling, who spends most of the movie trying to track down, and apprehend, Hannibal. If you watch the film’s gripping opening, you’ll discover why her career as an FBI agent hinges on it. The story takes some clever and creepy twists and turns, building more and more unbearable suspense, until it reaches it’s harrowing, frightening climax. And I love the fact that the ending delivers not one, but TWO surprising twists. If you’re a fan of The Silence of the Lambs who’s looking an amazing, unnerving sequel, try out this tense, dreadfully scary gem! The fantastic plot and incredible cast, all of whom deliver superb performances, is a guarantee that you’ll love it!👍🏻👍🏻
