Red Dragon (2002)
Best Film of 2002 so far...
In my opinion, it's one of the best movies of the year. If not the best.
The acting is completely credible. Norton's quibbles were a bit...off, but other than that, the cast was fantastic.
Red Dragon is very intense. And it doesn't often rely on suprise scares to jolt you. There are many psycologically scary moments, and even some unintended laughs along the way. You know what I'm talking about. :D
The one and only thing that really irked me about the film was how it was marketed as a "Hannibal Lector" movie. It didn't feel at all as if we were watching a movie about him. He was just a side character (in my opinion) and Anthony Hopkins is even given the first name in the credits. How unjust. ;)
I'd give the film 5/5 if it weren't for the periodic lulls here and there. And I'm really not going to decrease my rating because it's from the director of Rush Hour. If anything, I should increase it, because Ratner has done an incredible job, and it's a big step up. And I would be lying if I said I did not enjoy Red Dragon more than Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal combined.
