Small Screen: Hannibal: Season 3 review

Where the season’s first half saw Fuller throwing around ideas and playing with thoughts that did not always turn out so well, the second half was controlled, well-paced and almost always entertaining. This is because the second half of the series was based on Red Dragon and followed the plot relatively closely, although there were various changes which were, for the majority, good decisions. Richard Armitage took on the role of Francis Dolarhyde and did a great job of conveying both the tragic and terrifying sides of the character, while Mikkelsen’s Lecter continued to be just as unnerving even behind his trademark mask. Although some may claim the second half was too similar to previous Red Dragon adaptations Fuller’s trademark style shone through, elevating the series and delivering a finale that was short, but most definitely sweet.
