Ten years after his escape, Hannibal Lecter has decamped to Florence, while Clarice Starling has been sidelined at the FBI to ponder anew her missing adversary. A corrupt Italian 'tec realises a new lecturer in town bares an uncanny resemblance to the erudite cannibal. First onto the discovery, though, is Lecter's only surviving victim, Mason Verger, who has been plotting a violent revenge involving man-eating pigs.
Expectation far exceeds delivery. Ranging from laughable to just plain boring, Hannibal is toothless to the end.
