I thought it was much better than Manhunter. The character of Francis Dolarhyde is given much more background and purpose in the film, becoming more of a tragic character than just a creepy bad guy that we're supposed to fear/hate. Gee, maybe Ratner could've used that working model to make some of the characters in X3 some substance.
