Hold out for Red Dragon.

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!
| Original Score: 0/5

Lean serial-killer thriller makes The Silence of the Lambs look sheepish.

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.
| Original Score: 5/5

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

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

Cox's Hannibal is a masterclass in moderation.

MANHUNTER whispers rather than shouts, and is all the more effective for it.

Michael Mann unnerves his viewers with this psychologically slippery, contemplative and disturbing thriller.
| Original Score: 4.5/5

This is an overlooked but superior thriller, one of the best films from the 1980s.

You can see the birth of such popular forensics shows as CSI in this film's blend of the police procedural and the horror film.

[An] engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining film that deserved its cult status.

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.
| Original Score: 7/10
