... "Manhunter" is a gory and gorgeous cop thriller...
May 28, 2016
Innovatively shot by ace cinematographer Dante Spinotti, this contains at least two bravura sequences that still stand out.

Cox's Hannibal is a masterclass in moderation.

At the very worst an intriguing misfire, and often much better than that.

Manhunter ushered in the age of empathy for the devil.

I'm intrigued by that stylistic envelope: simultaneously hypnotic and enervating, meditative and empty.
February 9, 2006
One of the most impressive American thrillers of the late '80s.

While Manhunter is absorbing and sometimes tense, it's unfortunate that Mann dedided to direct the film with the stylistic overkill of his Miami Vice.

The movie drives along with such intensity for much of the time that you can just let it work on your senses without worrying about whether it makes sense.

Unlike Hannibal, [Mann is] able to balance style and substance with a late-night hearse pace.

One of the worst movies ever made. How do people think this is effective? It's so schmaltzy and sloppy and careless. No tension, no terror, and Hannibal does not put his feet up!

Its Miami Vice sheen hides one of the most effective thrillers in recent memory; a dramatically different counterpunch to the better-known Silence of the Lambs.

Michael Mann is in top form here helming this bone-chilling thriller based on the novel by Thomas Harris.
February 10, 2003
[An] engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining film that deserved its cult status.
