Theater IV: Hannibal

This week’s episode is all about change.  Changing the Oscar and Golden Globe winning lead actress, changing the Oscar winning director, changing the Oscar winning screenwriter and eventually changing the channel whenever you see the 2001 film Hannibal on TV.  This star packed sequel to Silence of the Lambs takes place 10 years after Hannibal Lecter’s escape from prison and finds him hiding in Florence under an assumed alias.  Back in the US, Clarice Starling is still an FBI agent and is being blamed for a botched sting operation that left several dead suspects and one dead cop.  She is pulled back onto Lecter’s trail by one of his old victims, Mason Verger; a former patient that is missing his face and seeks revenge on Dr. Lecter.  There’s also an Italian inspector that has a pointless side story to link things back to Florence so Clarice and Dr. Lecter can begin talking again.  This movie is so long and so convoluted that it is a waste of anyone’s time and attention.  Does Guinness really keep track of how many kills each female FBI agent gets in the line of duty?  Why didn’t Inspector Pazzi approach Lecter with much more caution after learning who he was and that he was on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list?  Why were Gary Oldman and Ray Liotta in this movie?  If they would have completely removed both of their storylines would the movie be any worse?  Does anyone remember anything about this film other than the brain eating scene?  Can you believe they made two more movies and a TV show in the Hannibal Lecter franchise after this piece of crap?  It was an obvious cash grab that resulted in one of the biggest wastes of a talented cast and one of the worst sequels ever made.  Please rate and review our show wherever you get it.  Have a great week!
