Anthony Hopkins returns in his finest and most chilling performance yet, as the malevolent Dr Hannibal Lecter. FBI Agent Will Graham (Edward Norton) is called out of early retirement to catch a serial killer known as 'The Tooth Fairy'. To stop brutal murders from continuing, Graham must first let Lecter inside his head. Prepare to be disturbed as Graham confronts the brilliantly sinister Lecter in this dark and heart-pounding thriller. With an outstanding cast including Oscar Nominees Ralph Fiennes, Emily Watson, and Harvey Keitel, plus Mary Louise Parker and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Adapted from Thomas Harris first Hannibal Lecter novel, Red Dragon is the second big screen version of the book, following on from Michael Manns Manhunter. FBI profiler Will Graham (Edward Norton) is ushered out of retirement by boss Jack Crawford (Harvey Keitel) to help catch serial killer The Tooth Fairy (Ralph Fiennes), who targets families each lunar cycle. Graham has an uncanny ability to project himself into the minds of his criminal prey, and decides to consult former mentor Dr. Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) on the Tooth Fairy case...
After having successfully eluded the authorities for years, Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) peacefully lives in Italy in disguise as an art scholar. Trouble strikes again when he is discovered leaving yet another body in his wake. He returns back to his homeland of America to once again make contact with now disgraced Agent Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore) who is suffering the wrath of a malicious FBI official/rival, Paul Krendler (Ray Liotta) as well as the media. Meanwhile, Hannibal must survive the advances by a disfigured and vengeful victim he first came in contact with years ago as a patient, Mason verger (Gary Oldman). He also finds himself being tracked down by the authorities as well as vengeful relations of his previous victims.
These two films are not nearly as good as either "The Silence of the Lambs" or Michael Mann's earlier "Manhunter" (of which "Red Dragon" is a remake. "Hannibal" is largely unpleasant and Julianne Moore cannot hold a candle to Jodie Foster - who wisely wanted nothing to do with this film. "Red Dragon" is well made but a waste of a good cast. There was something artistically unique about the earlier two films; but these two are just formulaic product.
