    Were you somewhat disappointed by the movie, "Hannibal"?
    (I happened to have liked it better than the book!) "Red Dragon" will more than make up for it!
    For the uninformed, this movie is the prequel to "Silence of the Lambs" and was IMO the best book of the series. There was a film "based" on the book several years ago directed by Michael(Miami Vice) Mann retitled "Manhunter" and starred CSI's William Petersen. That movie was fine (seemed more like a cross between episodes of CSI and Miami Vice if you think about it) and wasn't as faithful to the book as "Red Dragon" is.
    This movie even goes one step further than the book (and Manhunter) and shows how Hannibal Lecter was apprehended. I don't want to give too much of the plot away so there's nothing spoiled, but if you like these "serial-killer" themed movies, this is one that's worth the admission!
    Anthony Hopkins, as usual, doesn't disappoint and is well complimented with performances from Edward (American History X) Norton and Ralph (The English Patient) Fines. Brett (Rush Hour 2) Ratner actually did a great job with direction and was able to throw in some great scares!
    Still, one of the last movies to truely scare me was the original, "Silence of the Lambs", whenever the camera panned towards Clarice Starlings' first look at Hannibal Lecter. Man-goosebumps!

    Thanks for the review man...I have been looking forward to seein this movie since I heard about it. Hopefully I will be able to go. Looks like a good one.
    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    One complaint: They used the same guy as Lechter's doctor from "Silence" but they used somebody else to play Jack Crawford. (They used Harvey Keitel) I guess Scott Glenn is looking older than Anthony Hopkins these days.

    One more minor complaint....
    SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The segue into Silence of the Lambs at the very end is kind of lame!
