The continuing saga of Hannibal Lecter, the murdering cannibal. He is presently in Italy and works as a curator at a museum. Clarice Starling, the FBI agent whom 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 has it in for her. But she gets a reprieve because Mason Verger, 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.

Margot Verger (Mason's sister), Ardelia Mapp, and Dr. Doemling were all major characters removed from this film adaptation, but some of Domeling's and Margot's dialogue ended up in the film, spoken by Cordell and Mason. See more »
As units pull into the Fish Market at about 00:07:05, an obvious and poorly done CGI reflection has been added to the driver side front quarter panel. This was likely done to mask a real reflection of visible crew or equipment. In fact, when the vehicle rocks from being placed in PARK, the effect does not match the car's movements. See more »
Dear Clarice, I have followed with enthusiasm the course of your disgrace and public shaming. My own never bothered me except for the inconvenience of being incarcerated, but you may lack perspective. In our discussions down in the dungeon it was apparent to me that your father, the dead night watchman, figures largely in your value system.

After fading to black, the alternate ending features a new voiceover-- Hannibal: Clarice, would you ever say to me, "Stop. If you really love me you'll stop?" Clarice: Not in a thousand years. Hannibal: Not in a thousand years? That's my girl. See more »
Well, the deal is done. Saw it. Liked it. However.....not nearly as good as
Silence. Very different effect is achieved by this film. It does almost
like an elite form of slasher movie. Like Jason with class and an
I like Jodie and I see why she really didn't want this role. There's not a
hell of a lot for Starling to do. Let's just say this- I liked it for what
it is. As a stand alone film. It works on some levels. I think 2 1/2 is a
good rating. I can recommend it. I even liked it. It just pales in
comparison. And one can't help but compare. The characters all seem a bit
shallow. Even Lecter. Some parts of this film are sooo over the top, I have
to accept them as dark humor. The main thing I remember about Silence is
overwhelming feeling of dread, of sadness about the events in the film.
"What does he do, this man you seek?" "He kills women." "NO, that is
INCIDENTAL." Now that exchange instilled horror in me. There's just nothing
like that in this film.
