Red Dragon is the prequel to The Silence of the Lambs starring Edward Norton as a former FBI agent, who predates agent Starling. Typically, when the movie is out as a prequel to a great original movie, it really sucks. However, this one rivals the original in performance, as Anthony Hopkins reprises or pre-prises his role as Hannibal Lecter. This movie was exceptional as it created a even darker film of the series that kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire movie. Well made.
