This is an effective crime thriller that works well because of the talent of its cast. William Petersen is gritty and to-the-point as a criminal profiler and Tom Noonan actually makes for a creepy, yet sympathetic serial killer. The film's 80's dialogue and soundtrack sometimes dates it, but the performances bring the plot home.

This is the first film adaptation of one of the Hannibal Lecktor novels 'Red Dragon'. It is very different, in style and tone, from the later adaptation correctly titled 'Red Dragon'. I liked the actors very much, but the stylistic choices made it feel too much like the show Miami Vice (also by the same director). Overall, a decent 80's thriller.
