FBI Agent Will Graham has been called out of early retirement to catch a serial killer, known by authorities as "The Tooth Fairy". He asks for the help of his arch-nemesis, Dr. Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter, so that he can be able to catch "The Tooth Fairy" and bring him to justice. The only problem is that "The Tooth Fairy" is getting inside information about Graham and his family from none other than Dr. Lecter. Written by
When Will Graham first encounters Hannibal Lecter in the asylum, it was originally written that Graham would show his fear of Lecter. However, Edward Norton pointed out that Graham was a seasoned and veteran agent who would never show his fear to Lecter. Director Brett Ratner then suggested that Graham would be afraid, but wouldn't show it, and they came up with the idea of Graham having massive armpit sweat stains following his encounter with Lecter.

At the point when Reba McLane is examining the sedated tiger (time elapsed 1.25.58) her wristwatch watch reads 11:20 (though the hour hand is out of sync). However 30 seconds later (time elapsed 1.26.28) on the same scene, the veterinary assistant's wristwatch watch reads just before 11 o'clock. See more »
Think to yourself that every day is your last. The hour to which you do not look forward will come as a welcome surprise. As for me, when you want a good laugh, you will find me in fine state, fat and sleek, a true hog of Epicurus's herd.

Better than "Hannibal", but not up with "Silence of the Lambs"
But it was pretty damn close. "Red Dragon" was a great movie to watch. I have to admit that I had my doubts. I heard some bad things about this movie from my friends. I had bought the movie for my mom, and she said just to give it a shot. I'm glad I did. "Red Dragon" goes back into the roots that "Silence of the Lambs" did. It had high action and drama. I was very impressed. And Anthony Hopkins does a great job as his most famous role as Hannibal Lector. I really have to say that I didn't stick to my friend's opinions. This was a great movie. I would recommend for the "Silence of the Lambs" fans.
