Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Frank Whaley and Philip Seymour Hoffman play minor characters so annoying they might as well wear T-shirts reading 'Eat My Brain.'"
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"The beats are the same, but the eerie vibe has been lost in translation."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"Great, but too scary and violent for most teens."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A decent enough entertainment that sticks closely to the novel."
‑ Philip French, Guardian
"Its thrills fall with metronome-like precision, exactly when they are expected, and the clues complete the puzzle without surprise or personality."
‑ Todd Gilchrist,
"Where Mann and Demme steered the hokum away from dull genre generalities, Ratner's point-and-film literalness churns out a thriller by rote, shorn of the psychological dogfighting that distinguished the first two films."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Everything's a little too familiar."
‑ , Washington Post
"A surprisingly good and entertaining finisher..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Who would've guessed the guy who gave us Money Talks, Rush Hour and The Family Man had what it takes to realize a thriller as smartly effective as this?"
‑ Rick Kisonak, Film Threat
"Ratner, Tally and Hopkins bring back the elements that made Lambs one of the creepiest films ever made ..."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"Wonderful performances and some really chilling moments."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Elegant, dark, alluring, frightening, mesmerizing."
‑ , Washington Post
"The film oozes contempt for its audience, caring nothing for the characters or suspense and only craving money."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Hopkins should know better than to lessen the impact of these performances with redundant encores."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"Tenso e envolvente, o filme conta com belas atuações (especialmente de Fiennes) e é infinitamente superior à fraca versão dirigida por Michael Mann em 1986."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
