About the Film
Anthony Hopkins reprises his Oscar®-wining role as the infamous Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the thrilling prequel critics are hailing as "A Suspenseful Masterpiece!" (Fox-TV) After capturing Dr. Lecter, FBI agent Will Graham (Edward Norton) retires - only to be called back to active duty to hunt down an elusive killer, "The Tooth Fairy" (Ralph Fiennes). Red Dragon is the electrifying, critically acclaimed movie that "returns the series to The Silence of the Lambs form" (Jack Mathews, New York Daily News).
The Red Dragon is one incredible thriller, it is the prequel to The Silence Of The Lambs and a remake of the classic Manhunter. Anthony Hopkins plays the brilliant but psychotic cannibal known as Dr Hannibal Lecter. The film starts with the capture of Hannibal by FBI Agent Will Graham, played by Edward Norton, in a bloody fight that leaves both Hannibal and Will in critical condition.
But seven years later, after Will Graham had been retired from the FBI he is asked back to help so a new serial killer case. The killer known in the press as 'The Tooth Fairy' or to himself 'The Red Dragon', and played by the brilliant Ralph Fiennes, brutally murders whole families and their pets. The Red Dragon is psychotic and deranged after years of abuse from his grandmother, he inserts broken pieces of glass into his victims to make them become 'alive' again. But to help in the case he goes back to the person who nearly killed him, Hannibal Lecter.
This is one of the best thriller films i have seen, maybe apart from Silence Of The Lambs. It is gory, it is disturbing, it is shocking, but it is a great psychological thriller. As part of the Hannibal Saga, fans of Silence Of The Lambs and Hannibal need to try this film. I love my horror and thriller films and this is one of the best. Anthony Hopkins always delivers as the creepy, but likeable, Hannibal Lecter. Ralph Fiennes shows us his deranged psycho side as the disturbed killer the Red Dragon. All the cast are incredilbe, the story couldn't be any better and the film ends where Silence Of The Lambs begins. This is a must see film!
