Building a larger fan following with Anchor Bayís DVD release in 2001, Manhunter is the first film to feature the now infamous movie villain Hannibal Lecter (or Hannibal Lecktor as it is spelled in this film).  Since then there have been various other releases from both Anchor Bay and MGM, and now the film based on Thomas Harrisís novel Red Dragon, that started it all, gets the hi-def treatment as part of The Hannibal Lecter Collection from MGM/Fox. 

Manhunter follows FBI agent Will Graham (William Petersen, CSI) who has been plucked from retirement by former boss Jack Crawford (Dennis Farina) to work on a current case involving a mass murderer.  Graham is the obvious choice on the case since he was the agent who captured infamous serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecktor (Brian Cox), known for his fondness for indulging in human flesh.  Grahamís ability to get inside the mind of a killer allowed for Dr. Lecktorís successful incarceration, so if anyone has the ability to capture this killer (dubbed The Tooth Fairy), itís Agent Graham.

Manhunter exhibits a shining cast.  William Petersenís portrayal of FBI agent Will Graham definitely gives off a Gil Grissom vibe -- his most prominent character, from the popular television series CSI.  Tom Noonan gives an absolutely chilling performance as the tall brooding murderer, The Tooth Fairy, and really steals the show.  His interaction with a blind woman and subsequent enragement is a performance highlight.  Anthony Hopkins is best known for his role of Hannibal the Cannibal, but this introductory role was played by Brian Cox, who ultimately gives a very different performance of Hannibal than the Hannibal viewers have grown to know.  Coxís performance is much more subtle, and less chilling since we never get to see him in his murderous element.

Director Michael Mann (Heat) has created an extremely stylish crime drama/thriller and has a cinematic color pallet that echoes the works of Dario Argento.  Itís evident that color was vital to Mann when directing the film.  Everything, from the cinematography, right down to the classic rock score works perfectly, lending to a unique movie experience not present in many modern crime dramas today.

Manhunter is part of The Hannibal Lecter Collection released on Blu-Ray from MGM/Fox.  The film is presented 2.35:1 10:80p and is a marked improvement over its DVD predecessors.  The audio is presented with English 5.1 DTS HD Master audio as well as Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital and French 5.1 Dolby Digital.  While the audio and video are good with this release the runtime poses a bit of a conundrum.  This release clocks in at 120-minutes while the previous DVD release from Anchor Bay runs approximately 121:30-minutes.  Then there is the problem of not including the directorís cut of the film which runs 124-minutes.  Perhaps Anchor Bay still owns the rights to the directorís cut?  Itís strange to have the film run a minute and a half shorter.  Of the missing minute, nothing is noticeably missing from the film other than the directorís cut footage.  This release contains no extras.  Who smells a possible future Blu-Ray release?
