Great, but too scary and violent for most teens.

A surprisingly good and entertaining finisher...

The film oozes contempt for its audience, caring nothing for the characters or suspense and only craving money.

Frank Whaley and Philip Seymour Hoffman play minor characters so annoying they might as well wear T-shirts reading 'Eat My Brain.'

A decent enough entertainment that sticks closely to the novel.

Where Mann and Demme steered the hokum away from dull genre generalities, Ratner's point-and-film literalness churns out a thriller by rote, shorn of the psychological dogfighting that distinguished the first two films.

Who would've guessed the guy who gave us Money Talks, Rush Hour and The Family Man had what it takes to realize a thriller as smartly effective as this?

Hopkins should know better than to lessen the impact of these performances with redundant encores.

Its thrills fall with metronome-like precision, exactly when they are expected, and the clues complete the puzzle without surprise or personality.

Ratner, Tally and Hopkins bring back the elements that made Lambs one of the creepiest films ever made ...

Tenso e envolvente, o filme conta com belas atuações (especialmente de Fiennes) e é infinitamente superior à fraca versão dirigida por Michael Mann em 1986.
| Original Score: 4/5

Sometimes a remake can be better than the original. This doesn't happen very often, but...Thus it is with Bret Ratner's remake of Michael Mann's "Manhunter."

Psychological thrillers became a dime a dozen after the success of Lambs, but Red Dragon is at least worth your $7.50.

Because this is the second time he's pimped out this Oscar-winning meal ticket for a hefty paycheck, maybe Anthony Hopkins should be forced to give his statuette back.

The movie is flawed but the DVD is stuffed with extras.

If you've seen the original it's like watching a well-rehearsed covers band.

a damn good suspense movie, against all reasonable expectations. Best of all, however, is the return of Anthony Hopkins as evil incarnate himself, Doctor Hannibal Lecter
