Movie Info

Ex-FBI agent Will Graham (Edward Norton) is an expert investigator who quit the Bureau after almost losing his life in the process of capturing the elusive Dr. Lecter (Anthony Hopkins). After a series of particularly grisly murders, Graham soon realizes that the best way to catch this killer, known as the Tooth Fairy, is to find a way to get inside the killer's mind. For Graham, that means confronting his past and facing his former nemesis, the now-incarcerated Lecter.

    This might seriously be the only good thing Brett Ratner has ever done. I don't even mean movies he's made, just like, thing he's done. Ever. In his life. Doesn't live up to the book, or to Silence of the Lambs (though that second part took me a while to figure out), but I watch this thing semi-regularly and I haven't gotten sick of it yet.

    Appearing to be almost a mirror to The Silence of the Lambs, making it a lesser work, but nonetheless witty and well-made.

    To complete the Lecter trilogy the producers returned to the first novel and remade Mann's 'Mindhunter'. I've never seen that film all the way through so I can't compare. However this is an effective suspense thriller that enjoys taking the best elements from 'Silence'. Hopkins' Lecter was always more effective when he was contained and so it proves here. He's not as terrifying as 'Silence' but some of the terror is restored after the operatic but slightly dull 'Hannibal'. The rest of the cast is full of amazing actors and Fiennes and Watson in particular are great. Their scenes produce the best tension in the film. If you've seen any of the 'Hannibal' TV series you'll enjoy the beginning of the film although Hopkin's Lecter is much more pantomime than Mads' version. Ratner is a capable director and although there's nothing flashy in the film the story is told well and is a worthy addition to the series.
