(At around twenty-eight minutes) The establishing shot of the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane was re-used from The Silence of the Lambs (1991), as the building was no longer available for filming. See more »
(at around 1h 8 mins) When Molly learns to shoot at the farm, every shot she takes echoes, but Molly and Will are in an open plain. The only way for the shot to echo is if they were in an enclosed space. 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.

Yes, it is very hard to admit when a remake surpasses its original, but in this case, it is needed. Red Dragon is a remake of Manhunter, and it managed to surpass it. This movie was excellent (as Manhunter was). Manhunter has this movie beat in acting for some parts. William Petersen plays a better Will Graham. But Harvey Keitel plays a better Jack Crawford. Tom Noonan played a better Francis Dolarhyde, but Anthony Hopkins plays a MUCH better Hannibal. This movie fills in the blanks where Manhunter left them wide open. There's a part in the beginning where it actually shows how Will caught Hannibal. Some scenes were souped up in this movie from the original but over all it worked out. The ending of this movie was actually played out much better than in Manhunter. This movie even ends right as Silence of the Lambs begins, which helps a lot. I recommend this movie to fans of Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Manhunter. 9/10.
