Harry Louis Stevens’s review published on Letterboxd:
Damn. That was one of the easiest five stars I’ve given on this site.
I’ll admit, I was hesitant to watch this after becoming addicted to the Hannibal TV show (which is another 5/5 so watch) as I was worried I would be let down by this. What a fool I was. This was fantastic and I am genuinely having trouble finding any flaws. While I absolutely love Mads Mikkelsen’s portrayal, Hopkins brings something entirely different to Hannibal that made the whole experience totally fresh. Comparing them would be unfair due to the difference in how much screen time they got, but I’ll just say that both are stellar. Jodie is also awesome! Totally deserving of every award this has gotten; I mean the run time flies by so I’ll definitely rewatch soon. FANTASTIC!
