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

(at around 11 mins) At the end of the title sequence, following the prologue, the unseen killer rapidly flicks through the pages of his journal. Going through this sequence frame-by-frame reveals two identical pages - highly implausible in a scrapbook-style journal (The repeated page consists of one boxed article at the top, a picture at the bottom-left, and part of another article at the bottom right, the text selectively obliterated with a black marker pen).

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.

Having seen the disappointing Hannibal, I was a bit reticent about seeing this. The original Manhunter film was simply on the edge and excellent, and another prequel could have gone either way.
Prequels are the fashion of the moment aren't they?
This was actually very good, and most enjoyable. Fiennes and Norton added much to the story, and were both absolutely excellent.
Hopkins gave the performance you'd have expected from him in his role, and this was also notable for a fine performance as Fiennes' blind girlfriend of the bird that appeared in the ever-so-nauseating and vomit enducing Angela's Ashes [which gave a whole new meaning to stereotypical grim films].
Don't be put off by Hannibal, definitely see this one.
