Movie Review by Movie Addict
November 25th, 2008

Favorite Movie Quote: "It's just you and me now, sport. And I'm going to find you, God damn it."

Not having read "Red Dragon," I am not biased in my review. As I have always said, a book is a book, and a movie is a movie, and there should not be any comparison in a review.

This was an interesting movie in many respects. It was a good thriller; like an episode of "Law and Order" and "CSI" together. I don't really like Dennis Farina, so I am glad he was just a peripheral player.

I like seeing William Petersen long before he was tapped for his "CSI" role. I hardly recognized him at first. It is easy to see why he got the role because he exhibited many of the same qualities in this film.

Michael Mann (Heat, Miami Vice, Collateral) does a good story in this genre and I really enjoyed his writing and directing of this film.

Veteran actor Brian Cox made a great Hannibal Lecktor, and was so much more of what a serial killer should be that later reincarnations of the character.

A really interesting movie that was only weakened by the fact that is was in the style of the 80s.

I saw this in my early teens but it never really stuck with me for some reason so perhaps I will re-visit it one day. I think the film Red Dragon stuck with me longer although Silence of the Lambs is still my favorite in this series.

Yeah, I loved Silence, but that was because of Jody Foster.
