This movie is perfection with internal monologues.
Mrs. Kwan is bae.
But seriously this movie could have been better. The production design is perfect. The kids do a great job too.
However, Mike Meyers is not good as the cat. He's always laughing at his jokes that aren't funny. They could keep the same plot and scenes, but just change the jokes to something more kid friendly and it would be a better movie.
I hate to say it, but I think I liked this more than Silence of the Lambs. It's a better story. Will Graham has a personal history with Hannibal: a stronger foundation to their relationship. He has a stronger motivation for wanting to stop the Tooth Fairy (his family). I don't know what Clarice's motive was. Then, he and the Tooth Fairy's lives get entangled more.
They're not fair to compare, but Red Dragon works better as a drama or story, while Silence is a more realistic look at solving an FBI case.
