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

4.0 out of 5 stars Deserving resurrection of "Manhunter", Oct. 26 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I've seen "Red Dragon" years ago but couldn't recollect it from my thoughts. Last night it reappear to me that it's a great film. This of course is a remake of "Manhunter (Full Screen Edition)," the first in the series of films centering on FBI profilers, serial killers, and the infamous Hannibal Lecter, who I suppose is the modern day equivalent of "Jack the Ripper." I haven't read the novel by Thomas Harris so I can't say which is the more authentic, but they're both very good films.

As in the original, "Red Dragon" centers around the character of Will Graham, a retired FBI profiler who is brought back to help find a serial killer (Ralph Fiennes), known as "The Tooth Fairy," preying on women with families. He kills once a month in sync with the lunar cycle, so Graham has time to investigate the two crime scenes and look for evidence that would indicate who the next target is. The beginning of the scene will capture your interest right away, because it sets up the relationship of Hopkins and Norton; it also gives Hopkins, without whom this film wouldn't exist, more screen-time.

Also as in the original, Hannibal Lecter is a supporting figure, not the main attraction, though Anthony Hopkins certainly chews up the scenery in a performance he's gotten quite good at. The relationship between Lecter and Graham never intrigued me as much and I'm not convinced that Norton was the best choice for the part of Graham. Somehow, Norton came across to me as too innocent and youthful for the kind of role he was playing. Towards the end he turns out to be a good performance. The movie doesn't play up his character as much as "Manhunter" did for William L. Petersen, but that's just a style difference in the directors.

4.0 out of 5 stars way above average thriller Feb. 26 2008
By falcon
Format:DVD
(This movie was originally made as Manhunter)i liked "red dragon" a
lot.it was was well written and well directed.the acting was very
good,in particular harvey keitel, in a small role.the action scenes
were well done and the characters were sympathetic,so you felt their
pain and anguish.the dramatic scenes were done to great effect,not
simply filler,but actually serving a purpose.there was also plenty of
suspense,excellent in this case, since the movie take place before the
events in "the silence of the lambs"do. even though you know the
story,the director still manages to keep you on edge and keep you
interested in the story .i found the dialogue refreshing,not clichéd
and awkward, as is the case quite often.i bought "red dragon and have
watched it more than once, enjoying it each time.if this is your type
of genre,you will like this movie. 4/5

2.0 out of 5 stars So, You like the Good Doctor? July 3 2004
Format:DVD
Then, Red Dragon is Ok, worth seeing. But, DO NOT MISS "MANHUNTER"!
Aside from some 80's stylings, most notably the closing music over the credits, while still fitting, dates Manhunter, however, appropriately.
Red Dragon is only compelling in that you "Get More", of the book.
The ending is truer.
The acting, and directing is clumsy.
It's difficult to watch Ed Norton fumble through Will Graham's wondeful legacy of Peterson's portrayol in "Manhunter".
Worse still, is watching Anthony Hopkins spew the same lines as Brian Cox, as the "Original" Hannibal Lechtor. Hideous.
Oh, Tony adds his own "Lechtorism's, but, this film is a money grab.
It's odd too, because Dino owns "Manhunter"!!
So, this movie is ONLY a Remake!
When you watch "Manhunter", you will see where Clarissa got her lines.....
"Silence", is the direct descendant of "Manhunter".
And, with Hannibal (the movie, not the book), being left unfinished, there will more than likely be another money grab, hopefully, however, from a book as brilliantly written as the first three.
Make no mistake, Red Dragon exists, simply to "fill a gap" in time, where something can be sold to those of us, who want more "Lechtor".
Manhunter is by far, the superior Movie.
The film's color, and score, all add to the tension, that was only since recaptured in "Silence".
In years to come, Manhunter will stand as the far more mature movie, as it draws on more time honored cinematic core values.
