Rating:
R
Hannibal is the 2001 sequel to the blockbuster thriller The Silence of the Lambs, also based on a novel by Thomas Harris (Red Dragon, Hannibal Rising) and directed by legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Alien, Thelma and Louise). It has been 10 years since Hannibal 'the Cannibal' Lecter (Anthony Hopkins, Bram Stoker's Dracula) escaped into the world and Agent Clarice Starling (this time essayed by Julianne Moore, Boogie Nights) has graduated to full blown super FBI agent. But when an operation of hers fails spectacularly, the only thing she can do to cleanse the stigma of her recent dishonor is to go back on a celebrated case and attempt to track down and ensnare Hannibal. Unbeknownst to anyone, Hannibal is now in Rome if Florence, living comfortably as a museum curator. But when a former disfigured victim of his named Mason Verger (Gary Oldman, The Fifth Element) gets wind of his presence, he seeks to capture Lecter and enact a vengeful plan to make Lecter suffer as he has.moreless
