Product Description

Les producteurs de Hollywood ont bien du mal à ne pas étirer le filon d’un film à succès. Ainsi, après Hannibal, qui donnait une suite à l’excellent Silence of the Lambs, c’est maintenant le “passé” que l’on dévoile dans Red Dragon, réalisé par Brett Ratner.

L’ancien agent du FBI Will Graham vit une retraite paisible, jusqu’au jour où les meurtres odieux d’un terrible schizophrène, affublé du doux sobriquet de “Red Dragon” en hommage à un tableau de William Blake, l’obligent à reprendre du service. Pour comprendre les rouages de l’esprit du psychopathe, il n’aura d’autre choix que de faire appel au non moins terrible Hannibal Lecter, qu’il avait lui-même arrêté.

Même si Red Dragon aligne des acteurs solides comme Ed Norton, Emily Watson, Harvey Keitel et, bien sûr, sir Anthony Hopkins, il souffre néanmoins d’incohérences majeures. D’abord, le traitement cinématographique trop moderne semble anachronique face à l’action supposée se situer dans les années 80. Ensuite, la relation entre Norton et Hopkins n’atteint jamais l’intensité séductrice et perverse qui liait Jodie Foster au cannibale. Il n’y a entre les deux hommes qu’un rapport de force qui manque d’une certaine subtilité pour être vraiment inquiétant. Le film peut toutefois compter sur un suspense bien mené, notamment grâce à l’arrivée tardive du tueur, interprété par un Ralph Fiennes fou et vulnérable à souhait, et sur une finale spectaculaire. Ce point final (espérons-le !) à la trilogie du Dr Lecter saura donc tout de même faire renaître les frissons attendus. --Helen Faradji

What do I consider to be the absolute movie ever made? Well, it'd have to be a movie that is not interesting in any way, that features poor acting, and no style. But, most importantly, it would have to be a movie that is NOT so bad it's good, or at least entertaining, but something so truly terrible that is is just plain dull and boring. And, Red Dragon has all of these things. THIS is the movie that I would call the worst movie ever made. Of course, I haven't seen every movie ever made, so that's not a totally true claim, but I do say this is the worst movie I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot.
But, why is this film so terrible? Well, the story comes from one of the greatest books I've read, also called Red Dragon. also, it is following in the footsteps of three of my favorite movies, Michael Mann's 80s masterpiece Manhunter, Jonathan Demme's horrifying The Silence of the Lambs, and Ridley Scott's criminally underrated Hannibal. But, here's the worst thing about this movie. The taglines and ads for this movie make it seem like a story not put on film, the untold Hannibal Lecter story. Bull. The Red Dragon novel was adapted in 1986 as Manhunter, and that was a great film. So, it didn't have Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter, but so what? Brian Cox gave a great, memorable performance that could rival the Hannibal Lecter seen in 'Lambs' and 'Hannibal.' But it was a great movie and did a fabulous job of adapting the novel. So, with the three novels turned into three great movies, the trilogy is complete, right? Well, of course Universal couldn't let it go like that. There's major box office potential in Hannibal Lecter, so they went off and destoyed a great trilogy with this shoddy, pointless 're-imagining' of Manhunter. Re-imagining? Right.

1.0 out of 5 stars Once more, with feeling---& Anthony Hopkins! June 1 2003
Format:DVD
I'm not at all opposed to a good remake of a classic film, but I believe it should have something new to say, something that makes it relevant to the modern age and time. Almost a shot-for-shot remake of the original and woefully underrated classic "Manhunter", "Red Dragon" fails on this score, and lacks the tortuous internal struggle of its detective and the trancelike, music-video pacing that made the original so creepy, poetic, and melodic.
"Red Dragon" comes across as a bloodless, boring, dispirited, dreary, and mechanical cloning of the first film, directed by Michael Mann, which told the same story back in 1986 with style, wit, horror, and cinematic aplomb. Trouble is, Anthony Hopkins hadn't signed on to the role as society psychiatrist-turned-serial-killer Hannibal Lecter at the time, and Hollywood didn't have two massively successful Hannibal Lecter movies under its belt to capitalize on. The solution: remake "Manhunter", this time casting Hopkins as the cannibalistic Lecter.
"Red Dragon" introduces Hannibal Lecter by way of Will Graham (Edward Norton), an FBI profiler brought back to work on the case of a new serial killer nicknamed "The Tooth Fairy" by a yellow journalist (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) at the National Tattler. Graham, nearly killed by Lecter, needs help in tracking and identifying the killer, and, like Clarisse Starling in 'Silence', visits the good doctor to get a 'scent for the hunt'.
There are some slight alterations, none of them for the better. Where "Manhunter" was about the internal voyage of the troubled Graham into the soul and mind of a serial killer, "Red Dragon" is Hannibal Lecter's movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tepid, lifeless remake of "Manhunter" May 6 2003
Format:DVD
Oh, where to start?
First off, I really like actor Edward Norton. I think he is a brilliant actor. With that out of the way, he is miscast in this movie. There, I said it. So is Harvey Keitel. And Ralph Fiennes. And even the superb Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
The book Red Dragon has already been made into a movie, and definitively so. It was called "Manhunter", and it was even made by the SAME PRODUCER who made this one.
Ted Tally, screenwriter of "The Silence of the Lambs", is credited with the screenplay on "Red Dragon". However, there are SO MANY lines in this film that are word-for-word reproductions of dialogue in "Manhunter". Either he copied them word for word from that film, or the lines were directly from the book and they were used in "Manhunter" too. Either way, Tally is taking sole credit for someone else's work.
Yes, I am a big fan of "Manhunter", and I've seen it many, many times. And I bet "Red Dragon" director Brett Ratner has too. Ratner is a self-described movie nut, too, as well as director. I would find it VERY difficult to believe that he hasn't seen "Manhunter" at least a few times in the past. And so much of "Red Dragon" seems lifted directly from "Manhunter" that it goes beyond coincidence.
Well, he lifted a lot of stuff but not its style. "Red Dragon" is to "Manhunter" what paint-by-numbers is to a Van Gogh.
So many things in "Red Dragon" seem like blatant copies of things from "Manhunter", down to shot selection, scene structure, editing choices, etc.
Unfortunately, those of you who have seen "Red Dragon" but have never seen "Manhunter" can never see "Manhunter" with the same set of eyes that we "Manhunter" fans have. So you may never know the excitement and thrills of that movie quite the same way.
