Hannibal was just a bunch of nonstop gore, coupled with a plot that hardly made any sense, it just became mind numbing and desensitizing, by the time it got to the brain scene, I was laughing.
You memory is faulty. There are a handful of hardly gory scenes. The shootout at the beginning, the killing of the pickpocket, the killing of Hannibal's persuers, the death of Mason Verger and the scene at the end. All are spread out throughout the film, so it can hardly be considered wall to wall gore. The only scenes where you really see anything are the murder of the Italian Detective, mirroring the engravings Hannibal was talking to him about, and the "brain scene", which I feel is supposed to macabre in its absurdity.
As for the plot hardly making sense, what's so difficult about understanding it. Hannibal has fled to Europe, after an FBI operation goes bad Clarice Starling is demoted to the effort to track him down. Meanwhile Mason Verger is also trying to track him down so that he can get revenge for what Lecter did to him. You know the rest. What doesn't make sense?
