A retired F.B.I. Agent with psychological gifts, is assigned to help track down "The Tooth Fairy", a mysterious serial killer. Aiding him, is imprisoned forensic psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter.
3 Years after retiring from the FBI because of a near-fatal encounter with Hannibal Lecter, who was helping him catch the "Chesapeake Ripper", only to reveal it was Hannibal himself, Will Graham is asked by his ex-partner Jack Crawford to come solve one last case - 2 slaughtered families every full moon. They have 3 weeks until the next full moon to find the madman, but an innocent blind woman has found him first... Will Graham must risk his family's security and his own safety to track down this one last murderer - the epitome of all evil - The Red Dragon. Written by

During shooting of the opening classical concert scene, one of the extras in the audience was conducting along with the actual conductor, requiring a retake. See more »
(at around 1h 8 mins) When Will is teaching Molly to shoot at the farm, there is no visible recoil when she discharges the revolver. This would be practically impossible with a 357 or 44 in the hands of a novice. There is no flash either, just wisps of smoke. In fact, the gun shakes more while she's cycling the cylinder then when she discharges it. There are also no bullets in any of the chamber. Finally, neither are wearing safety goggles, which as a FBI field agents should be second nature when firing in a range-type setting. 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.
