Best of the series vs. the worst (but still good one)
Red Dragon gets my vote. Not only is it more engaging, but it also features Edward Norton.
Hannibal was, like the novel, slick, well-made trash that captured the gore but none of the gritty horror of the earlier Harris novels. Red Dragon, while still flawed and relying too much on star power and cliché, captures that mood very well, is better-acted and MUCH scarier. Hannibal is a great character, but he doesn't work as the center of a film; it gets too gimmicky.
Perhaps the only instance where a Brett Ratner film is way better than a Ridley Scott film.
Red Dragon isn't Silence of the Lambs, that is for sure, but thankfully it isn't Hannibal, which is a trainwreck
Both are ok but I liked Hannibal just a bit more
