Retired FBI agent Will Graham (William L. Petersen) returns to action to hunt down a serial killer by using his ability to get inside the psychopath's mind. However, it was this ability that drove him into retirement in the first place. The process of tracking and capturing the infamous Hannibal Lecter (Brian Cox) took a tremendous psychic toll on Graham, causing him to spent time in a mental hospital. With another madman on the loose, Graham has no choice but to return to duty, though he knows that it might cost him his family and his sanity.
To get the old mind-set back, Graham visits Hannibal Lecter in his high-security jail cell. However, the manipulative Lecter plays both sides and warns the new killer that Graham is on his trail, telling him to destroy Graham's family to protect himself. In order to save his own family, Graham must risk everything to once again enter into the mind of the criminally insane.
With MANHUNTER, Mann raises the bar for serial killer films, imbuing his killer with an almost sympathetic quality while keeping him extremely menacing and clearly dangerous. Based on the Thomas Harris novel RED DRAGON, which serves as the prequel to THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, MANHUNTER is a masterpiece of gripping storytelling and psychological horror.
I originally viewed this movie several years ago on a cable television channel. Since I had already become a fan of the television series CSI, I was intrigued that the movie stared William Petersen (star of CSI). At that time, I began searching for the movie, "Man Hunter," but could not find it anywhere. When I discovered Overstock.com, I figured I would definitely find it now! I even "spoke" in a live chat with one of your reps, but the movie, at that time, was not offered. Recently, it became available from your web site. Fabulous. OK, Man Hunter is the absolute beginning of the entire Hannibal Lecter (sp) series. Red Dragon, which is an updated version of Man Hunter, is good, but Man Hunter is still the movie to have in your collection! Thank you for the opportunity to own such a great movie! Granma
