Very good thriller. I felt sorry for the killer who was turned into a monster because of abuse during the childhood.
red Dragon was a great film, Ralph plays a brilliant part as a serial killer !
Interesting. I enjoyed it,ery gory though. Overall good movie. Anthony Hopkins again gives a powerhouse performance!
Nothing beats The Silence Of The Lambs. So the sequel and the prequel just don`t cut it. I did like Red Dragon more than Hannibal, but not much more. I liked at the end of the film, it connected with the first one. But that`s about it.
i think its on of Anthony Hopkins best movies and dont forget ralph fiennes and edward norton. Anthony hopkins is my favorite actor and all his movies are great to to me.
This movie is absolutly awesome!!!!
I loved it and all of anthony`s movies
The best movie I ever seen!
this movie is my favourite, ralph is just so ace. all those who hated it need thier heads cheacking!!!
it was the best movie out of all the Hannibal movies
I believe Red Dragon was an excellent movie and ties in with Silence of the Lambs beautifully. There was an amazing cast, and I loved Anthony Hopkins (as usual) and thought Edward Norton was very likeable as Will Grahem. I couldn`t have made a better movie, and since Hannibal was not the exceptional movie, this was a great movie for the Hannibal trilogy.
Best Hannibal Movie Yet!
Meh... it was as good as I thought it`d be. I mean, everything was so expected. For example, near the end, when the little boy runs ALONE into the house... OH PLEASE! C`mon, that`s just telling us something is going to happen. It really wasn`t that well done, though I did like Anthony Hopkins performance. It was actually quite funny.
Much better than Hannibal. Ties into Silence of the Lambs quite nicely.
great movie. I was very disapointed with the movie and book Hannibal.On the other hand Red Dragon was both excellent reading and great viewing. I would recommend it for everyone except my sister who would have her eyes covered for most of it, while she tugs on my sleeve asking "can I look now??"
The adaptation fits for screen-requirement; but would be better if Will displays more original thinking rather than the panel of "so called" experts.
the movie was great!
Have you ever seen the movie manhunter?.... with hannibal in it and the exact same charaters and plot and story line. Dont get me wrong it was a good movie but what happened to originality? i give it 3.5 stars
The re-make was no better than the original. And why did they keep the crappy eighties horror music? If you want entertainment, read the book and skip the movie.
It was the best of the trilogy, even though Silence of the Lambs won an Oscar. This is a movie I would definitly buy for my DVD collection. There was lots of twists and turns, and it kept you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end.
Ralph Fiennes should win the Oscar that he has been robbed of in the past. The movie was suspenseful, psychological, and well-acted in general. However, it is Ralph`s portrayal of D as a human being as well as a killer, humane as well as insane, that elevates the movie above the level of a formulaic thriller. You are able to feel for him even as you loathe and fear him. Mr. Fiennes demonstrates why he is easily the best actor in Hollywood today. I will see it again and again.
It put the pieces together from the past movies "Slience of the lamb" and "hannibal".
Faboulous!! :) Enough said!
It was awsome!!!!! I loved it. Everyone should go and see it!!!!!!!!!!
I loved it!!!! Hannibal was too gory and I thought it would be hard to beat Silence of the Lambs, but it does!! Amazing acting and a super scary plot. I also liked the way it tied into Silence of the Lambs. It couldn`t have been better...
awesome! awesome! awesome!!!
it was as entertaining as Silence of the Lambs. Norton and Hopkins were amazing together. Would advise everyone to see it.
better than silence and hannibal!
A classic masterpiece and a true thriller. Ralph Fiennes is awesome!
read the book years ago, far better than the movie
the best movie 2022
I read the book before I saw the movie and as soon as I finished the book I could not wait to see the movie. The movie was incredible and I have seen it many times. It is a very very good prequel to Silence of the Lambs. Norton and Hopkins energy together was extrodinary.
better than the last movie very entertaining a little scary
It was back in the ball game of Silence of the Lambs, as opposed to the other one.
brought the frist two movies to a close...
Very nicely Done. Great performances by all actors. Truely suspensful.
Very well done. Much better than the last one (Hannibal, yuck). Edward Norton is great as usual, and of course so is Anthony Hopkins, just as convincing as he was in the other ones. Harvey Keitel has a strong roll too. I recommend it.
excelent stayed true to the book altough it was mising some things but there were alot of thing aded in
fab! Ralph was brilliant and Emily Watson, superb, to say the least. Anthony Hopkins, as Lecter, had witty lines. Dark humour gave the edge as well. although some devices were cliched, they still worked, mostly because i wanted to believe in human goodness (hope), and i think the scheme of the movie was capitalising on that.
It kept both my wife and me on the edge of our seats. We enjoyed discussing the plot and characters after the show. Head & shoulders ahead of Hannibal and the tie-in to Silence of the Lambs was great!
Red Dragon is a very well done, entertaining movie with very fine acting by everyone involved. Same story but difference take from Manhunter, another very fine movie. I had high expectations and was not dissapointed.
Ummm (number 2)...it was already a trilogy. Red Dragon was made into Manhunter about 15 years ago, so, technically, Hannibal was the end of the trilogy.
a disgrace and no where near the audacity of silence of the lmabs. shame on hollywood for trying to squeeze in another trilogy in our already overflowing remake culture
Umm...in the book, Hannibal Lecter WAS a sideplot. Of the trilogy, only in "Hannibal" has Lecter been the main character. In both Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs, he is contacted by the FBI to provide information on other serial killers. That`s why I could never understand teasers like "the beginning of Hannibal Lecter`s reign of terror" and other such things. It`s not about him!
Not enough scenes with Hannibal! He was like a side plot. I was disappointed.
Ralph Fiennes is amazing!
