Hannibal.....the long awaited sequel i have been waiting patiently for!. A very powerful dark thriller as i might put it about the quest for one of the most dangerous men in the world. Doctor Hannibal Lecter (a.k.a Hannibal the Cannibal) escaped, as you will remember from the previous movie, while being moved due to an agreement he made with Clarice Starling. When the chance arose he killed the security guards in charge of him and made a marvelous escape, now on the loose he seems to have an artistic and tasteful side to him as he was in italy comfortably strolling the beautiful scenery and enjoying life to the fullest. Now however the FBI have put him on the most prestigious "ten most wanted list" and Clarice Starling is back on the case. The movie takes you through the mind of Hannibal, showing you his tastes which some lead to his motives for his killings. But dont worry folks Hannibal gets back into the swing of things and kills again so if ure into an artistic murder spree compiled by a world renound figure, this is your film.
If you loved the book and loved "silence of the lambs" then i suggest you go and see this powerful story about a man with a vision on life which i believe to be one of a kind. The movie focuses its entire attention to Hannibal, where as the first one was sharing the spotlight between Hannibal Lector and Buffalo Bill, the notorius killer who skinned his victims. However i would suggest you read the book first due to the film somewhat having a different ending. But all the same a remarkable movie. The music in this film is also a very powerful composition compiled by the ronouned Hanz Zimmer (Hanz zimmer composed the Gladiator soundtrack).
At the end of the day, if you like a classy, artistic, and devilishly good film then this would be the movie to make your day:)
