Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "Following the wanton frenzies of Hannibal, Red Dragon wisely returns to the wiles of impending and suggested violence rather than the spectacle of bloody geysers.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Average "Like most motion pictures whose sole reason for existing is the almighty dollar, Red Dragon is poorly conceived and poorly executed.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Very Good "A movie like Red Dragon is all atmosphere and apprehension. Ratner doesn't give us as much violence or as many sensational shocks as Scott did in Hannibal, but that's a plus: Lecter is a character who commands contemplation and unease, and too much action just releases the tension.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Above Average "Though Lecter is a minor character in the novel and the original film..., screenwriter Ted Tally and director Brett Ratner beef up his role to obscene proportions.'

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These are very high opinions. When three quarters of the opinions are "Fantastic" or "Excellent" and there are virtually no low opinions, it's very easy to highly recommend "Red Dragon."

If you're a fan of this series you won't want to miss how it all started. GO SEE "RED DRAGON"

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Very entertaining! A most see for Hannibal fans. Certainly as good or better than the first movie. It wasn't really scary but it was often very intense and exciting. There was only one scene that was graphic but there wasn't any scenes as graphic as the brain eating scene in "Hannibal." "Red Dragon" will be enjoyed most by fans of investigated dramas who appreciate a well written story.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A killer like Dr. Hannibal Lecter always has his fans - damaged creatures who wallow in the details of his sensationally brutal crimes. The mere fact of his existence thrills them, and the outrage and cold sweat he provokes in "weaker" mortals sustain them as they trudge through lonely, bitter lives. For these misfits, Lecter is a superior being. They are certain that he possesses the rare capacity to perceive them as they perceive themselves, and to respect the absolute necessity of their own depraved acts.

Lecter appreciates their devotion, especially now. He's had too few diversions since taking up residence at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

Will Graham has had fans, too, but never wanted them. As a top FBI investigator, he became a reluctant tabloid hero with high-profile arrests of murderers, including his most famous capture, Dr. Lecter. Still, his uncanny ability to think like the most perverse serial killers made some people uneasy - including Graham himself, especially after his nearly fatal encounter with Lecter. After his wounds healed, he took his family to tiny Marathon, Florida and left the FBI behind.

But Lecter's newest fan - a merciless slayer of sleeping families who strikes under the full moon - changes all that. His next attack is sickeningly inevitable and Graham's old boss doesn't have another agent with Graham's gift/curse for getting inside a killer's head. After studying the grisly crime scenes in Atlanta and Birmingham, Graham soon realizes that to have any chance of catching The Tooth Fairy, as this murderer has been dubbed, he'll need access to the mind of someone equally brilliant and equally twisted. And that means facing his former nemesis, Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
