Received a print of RED DRAGON tonight in the cinema where I'm a projectionist (and of course have to check the films I splice together so go to watch it as well)! In two words: very good. Puts to bed all that grand standing in HANNIBAL and brings back all those memories of SILENCE. You're reminded of why Antony Hopkins won an Oscar for this role. There are a few particular scenes where a better director would have brought it up another notch but everybody makes the most of their roles, especially Emily Watson and Ralph Finnes, and does sterling work to produce a solid entertaining thriller that really brings Hannibal Lecter full circle. And what an ending... One more thing: see it with a big audience.
