Product Description

Disc 1: HANNIBAL Disc 2: THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS Disc 3: MANHUNTER

Amazon.com

Manhunter:Though it will always be remembered as the movie featuring the "other" Hannibal Lecter, Michael Mann's 1986 thriller Manhunter is nearly as good as The Silence of the Lambs, and in some respects it's arguably even better. Based on Thomas Harris's novel Red Dragon, which introduced the world to the nefarious killer Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter, the film stars William Petersen (giving a suitably brooding performance) as ex-FBI agent Will Graham, who is coaxed out of semiretirement to track down a serial killer who has thwarted the authorities at every turn.

Graham's approach to the case is a perilous one. First he seeks counsel with Lecter (Brian Cox) in the latter's high-security prison cell--an encounter that is utterly horrifying in its psychological effect--and then he begins to mold his own psyche to that of the killer, with potentially devastating results. As directed by Mann (who was at the acme of his success with TV's Miami Vice), this sophisticated cat-and-mouse game never resorts to the compromise of cheap thrills. Predating Anthony Hopkins's portrayal of Lecter by four years, Cox plays the character closer to Harris's original, lower-key conception, and he's no less compelling in the role. Petersen is equally well cast, and as always Mann employs rock music to astonishing effect, using nearly all of Iron Butterfly's heavy-metal epic "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" to accompany the film's heart-stopping climactic sequence. All of this makes Manhunter one of the finest films of its kind, as well as further proof that Harris's fiction is a blessing to any filmmaker brave enough to adapt it. --Jeff Shannon

The Silence of the Lambs: Based on Thomas Harris's novel, this terrifying film by Jonathan Demme really only contains a couple of genuinely shocking moments (one involving an autopsy, the other a prison break). The rest of the film is a splatter-free visual and psychological descent into the hell of madness, redeemed astonishingly by an unlikely connection between a monster and a haunted young woman. Anthony Hopkins is extraordinary as the cannibalistic psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter, virtually entombed in a subterranean prison for the criminally insane. At the behest of the FBI, agent-in-training Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) approaches Lecter, requesting his insights into the identity and methods of a serial killer named Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine). In exchange, Lecter demands the right to penetrate Starling's most painful memories, creating a bizarre but palpable intimacy that liberates them both under separate but equally horrific circumstances. Demme, a filmmaker with a uniquely populist vision (Melvin and Howard, Something Wild), also spent his early years making pulp for Roger Corman (Caged Heat), and he hasn't forgotten the significance of tone, atmosphere, and the unsettling nature of a crudely effective close-up. Much of the film, in fact, consists of actors staring straight into the camera (usually from Clarice's point of view), making every bridge between one set of eyes to another seem terribly dangerous. --Tom Keogh

Hannibal: Yes, he's back, and he's still hungry. Ten years after The Silence of the Lambs, Dr. Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter (Anthony Hopkins, reprising his Oscar-winning role) is living the good life in Italy, studying art and sipping espresso. FBI agent Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore, replacing Jodie Foster), on the other hand, hasn't had it so good--an outsider from the start, she's now a quiet, moody loner who doesn't play bureaucratic games and suffers for it. A botched drug raid results in her demotion--and a request from Lecter's only living victim, Mason Verger (Gary Oldman, uncredited), for a little Q and A. Little does Clarice realize that the hideously deformed Verger--who, upon suggestion from Dr. Lecter, peeled off his own face--is using her as bait to lure Dr. Lecter out of hiding, quite certain he'll capture the good doctor.

Taking the basic plot contraptions from Thomas Harris's baroque novel, Hannibal is so stylistically different from its predecessor that it forces you to take it on its own terms. Director Ridley Scott gives the film a sleek, almost European look that lets you know that, unlike the first film (which was about the quintessentially American Clarice), this movie is all Hannibal. Does it work? Yes--but only up to a point. Scott adeptly sets up an atmosphere of foreboding, but it's all buildup for anticlimax, as Verger's plot for abducting Hannibal (and feeding him to man-eating wild boars) doesn't really deliver the requisite visceral thrills, and the much-ballyhooed climatic dinner sequence between Clarice, Dr. Lecter, and a third unlucky guest wobbles between parody and horror. Hopkins and Moore are both first-rate, but the film contrives to keep them as far apart as possible, when what made Silence so amazing was their interaction. When they do connect it's quite thrilling, but it's unfortunately too little too late. --Mark Englehart

This release of Michael Mann's 'Manhunter' is about as perfunctory as it gets. It's packaged in a generic-looking triple pack with 'Silence of the Lambs' and 'Hannibal' and there are absolutely no special features (there aren't even names for the chapter stops). It's a surprise, then, that it looks and sounds as good as it does. The movie is old (1986) and it's generally referred to as a footnote to the other two in this set. Still, I've seen it dozens of times over the years (on film, cable television, VHS, DVD) and this Blu-Ray picture is the sharpest I've ever seen it. The night time and darkly lit scenes are crisp; the lights and colors (sometimes used expressionistically) are clearer and show more detail than I've ever seen.

I'm not bothered by the lack of special features; this was such an unlikely candidate for Blu-Ray release, it's a treat just to have the movie in such nice shape.

There is a review that states "read carefully" referring to only manhunter being widescreen. If you read the back of the Blu-ray it says widescreen
for all three movies. When I went back to the review I realized the format this person was reviewing was for the Dvd set, not the Blu-ray.
I don't know if it's the reviewer not paying attention or if Amazon just slaps our reviews on any format as long as the titles are the same.
I've noticed this with music cd's too. A standard issue original cd from a specific year, a remaster of same disc years later with bonus tracks,
and another remaster years later with different bonus tracks from a different label. If you go to any one of these different releases, all the
reviews will be the same. The same review cannot apply to a non remaster, remaster and completely different remaster years later.
People reviewing and/or Amazon need to apply reviews to SPECIFIC formats and SPECIFIC releases not just any given title across the board.

The picture is great, a little lacking on "Manhunter" but not every classic film can be reproduced to Bluray perfection. "Silence of the Lambs" and "Hannibal" have incredible picture though. As for the films, all wonderful. "Manhunter" is the original to the remake of "Red Dragon" which I have found a lot of people do not know. "Red Dragon" is a better film in my opinion, mainly because of the actors in the film, not the story itself. All in all, the films are thrilling and impressive to anyone that has not seen them; and to anyone that has, you will love this Trilogy boxset.

While it is a bit sad that all four Hannibal the Cannibal classics will most likely never be released in a box set, I can understand it because of the different companies who have made the movies. This box set, however, is quite excellent. I myself feel that The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal are both equally brilliant and deserve a place in any person who calls himself a movie buff's collection.
The Silence of the Lambs was director Jonathan Demme's academy award winning 1991 classic. The success of the film, however, should not only be attributed to the director, because it was the work of the cinematographer, editor, writer, set director and, most of all, brilliant actors. Jodie Foster -IS- FBI agent Clarice Starling, brilliant, young, attractive (well, not really) and tough. Foster perfectly displays the emotions that go through her character and her growth throughout the picture. Some of my favorite scenes were where she discovers Buffalo Bill (the way she yells "freeze" is great!) and when she stands up to a crowd of men and orders them out of the room where an autopsy is taking place. Anthony Hopkins completely deserved his academy award as Hannibal. His portrayal of Hannibal and his personality was quite interesting. The way I see it, Hannibal is quite a nice gentlemen, but has a very large problem, that being his love for the taste of human flesh. I think you can tell from his scenes with Clarice Starling what a polite person he is. He might ask some personal questions, but the way he talks is courteous and friendly, if a bit intense. The cinematography of the film is fabulous, too.

I do not care to provide the 100th summary of the plot and my opinions on the acting et al, so, as I usually do, this review focuses solely upon the quality of the 3 films on Blu Ray and my rating is for that quality and not the quality of the movie itself. All 3 films come on their own separate Blu Ray disc so nothing is overly compressed trying to get 2 films upon one disc.

Manhunter.....While I knew of the 1986 release of this film, I had never seen it either on broadcast or DVD and had no preconceived notions about it.
VIDEO....
This film has a MPEG-4 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer with some pretty thick letterboxing. Overall the video, despite a high Mbps rate average in the low 30's presents muted colors with a soft contrast. Details tend to be crushed by the blacks in darker areas and a medium grain throughout, and while I am sure that it must be better than seeing it in Standard Definition, I strongly doubt that any remastering of the film has been done. I did see 2 jump cuts in the film that could not be as they were intended. It is possible therefore that this film was put together from a couple of different masters. While I said I wouldn't provided my opinion on the films, I must say that the later remake 'Red Dragon' was a far superior film. 3 stars.
AUDIO....
Despite a lossless DTS MA HD 5.1 audio codec, this film stems primarily from the center channel and though there were many opportunities to righteously direct foley fx to discreet channels both front and back, only the front channels were used and used very sparingly. The dialogue is clear enough and the volume levels set properly but overall the entire sound track sounds a touch soft and muted.
EXTRAS....
Only an ad about how great digital downloads are.
