This darkly seductive, flawlessly acted piece is worlds removed from most horror films. Here monsters have their grandeur, heroes their gravity. And when they collide, a dance of death ensues between two souls doomed to understand each other.
one of the best films ive ever seen. the plot flows really well and doesnt dissapoint everything what id excpect in an action movie. this movie is underrated. edward norton does a great job at capturing will graham
Me julguem, mas acho que Red Dragon (2002), entreter mais na minha opinião que Silence Of The Lambs (1991) e na minha opinião Red Dragon (2002) é muito melhor também, com um roteiro excelente e criativo, e um elenco estelar e impecável,que é composto pelo inesquecível Anthony Hopkins o genial "Hannibal Lecter",o incrível Harvey Keitel, o serial killer Francis Dolarhyde ou tooth fairy interpretado brilhantemente por Ralph Fiennes, e a ótima Emily Watson como a cegueta e mesmo não sendo um fã de Edward Norton ele faz um ótimo trabalho aqui, porém não consigo admira Philip Seymour Hoffman é um ator mediano... Excelente Drama de investigação recheado de Serial-Killers.
The most refreshing aspect of Red Dragon is its reliance on old-fashioned acting instead of computer-aided gizmos. Hopkins overdoes his role at times -- his vocal tones are almost campy -- but his piercing eyes are as menacing as ever, and Ralph Fiennes is scarily good as his fellow lunatic.
I can't tell you if Red Dragon is more faithful to Harris' book than "Manhunter," which I haven't seen in 16 years. I can tell you it's less artful and atmospheric, a straight-ahead thriller that never rises above superficiality.
This film is a sequel to "Silence of the Lambs" and has a very similar story: with a new serial killer around, the FBI will again request the help of the dangerous and manipulative Hannibal Lecter, the most famous cannibal ever. Directed by Brett Ratner and written by Ted Tally, this film has a cast headed by Anthony Hopkins, Edward Norton and Ralph Fiennes.
It's a good movie, but there is no comparison with the film that gave rise to it. The script is good, but it misses on two fundamental points: the first is to immediately tell the killer's identity, albeit discretely, removing some interest to the narrative; the other is to tell a story that is almost identical to "Silence of the Lambs." Both films have very similar plots, which gives the audience a sense that this film is more of the same. One difference, however, is the level of violence: this movie, even though it contains scenes of great action, has so many shocking scenes as their predecessors. Nevertheless, it is a movie with quality and entertains. The actors were up to expectations, particularly Ralph Fiennes, who plays the killer and managed to give the character a real aura of madness. Anthony Hopkins, again in cannibal paper was able to be perfectly equal to the expected. The special visual and sound effects, although discrete, are competent. The soundtrack seemed to discreet but good.
Not a classic, but a good and scary movie with interesting characters and detective work. You will enjoy the movie more if you consider Hannibal's presence as a plus and not as a requirement that everything in the film be compared to Silence of the Lambs. Hopkins is fascinating as expected, but I found the best scenes to belong to Fiennes and Watson. Their freakish chemistry is more horrifying than any of the movie's killings.
It's amazing to me all the small ways in which a really good story can be sabotaged by poor direction and poor planning and also by being a shameless cash grab, let's be real. On the surface, this is a well cast film that is mostly accurate to the source material.
But the movie has no power, no darkness, no life. You start to realize that the cast that looked so good on paper suddenly seems wrong; Edward Norton looking dazed, pragmatic; Ralph Fiennes unsure of what kind of monster he is. Nothing works, it doesn't feel right, ever, and yet it never comes right out and announces itself as a bad movie. It's insidious that way--if only the film had been.
