Manhunter (1986) REVIEW

How many times have we heard “The film isn’t as good as the book”? Let’s face it. What film IS?! Red Dragon was a masterpiece and so is Manhunter.To appreciate that there are two issues. Firstly, the film was created in 1986. It’s stylised and looks slightly dated. The soundtrack is excellent but again very 1980’s. Secondly, Red Dragon was not an easy book to write a screenplay for. There is way too much information that made the book so enthralling to squeeze in to 2 hours.The cinematography, in particular the clever use of light and colours, is breathtaking. The choice of locations was also very deliberate. The scene where Will is running out of the building after speaking to Hannibal Lecter. They chose a building with a long spiral ramp down. The ramp is white, clinical. Running down the ramp is like those dreams where the bad man is chasing you and you can’t get away. Will runs his heart out but doesn’t get very far.I agree that Cox plays a different Lecter but then the book wasn’t about Lecter. There was some mention made but Lecter in this film is very much a Cameo appearance. The way in which Will goes about catching the killer is every bit as clever as Starling’s methods, if not more so. In addition, we are treated to the thoughts, the inner monologue, the frustration and triumph of a hunter.Make no mistake, if you expect an up-to-date movie as good in every respect as the book, you’ll be disappointed. If you’re sensible and expect nothing more than 2 hours quality entertainment you’ll enjoy this one.
