It was good. The Swedish version is much better. (You can get it from your local library) It was kind of hard to understand the actress playing Lisbeth- it sounded as if she had a mouth full of marbles.
I think this was as good an interpretation of the book as the Swedish version. I like it a lot! Rooney Mara is much more sexy in this that was Noomi Rapace in the Swedish version, not because Noomi wasn't sexy, just that's just how they played this character in the US version.
The story is essentially the same as the Swedish version but with some, I think, minor changes. I liked many differences with the US version but I found the Swedish version a bit more suspenseful and melodramatic. I loved the musical opening of this movie. I think one should see both versions of this story. I will see this movie again as I have the Swedish picture.
An outstanding adaptation of an outstanding novel. Rooney Mara nails the character of Lisbeth Slander and propels the movie forward with high energy. A brutal, suspenseful, and excellent movie.
I would love the see the wedish verison of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," but I'll have to settle with this version. And it's a good movie, even for those like me who have never saw the Swedish version. It goes like this; two people were reunited over a series of brutal murders of young women. And they must find out who. Daniel Craig's performance is fine, but I love the performance from Rooney Mara. She play a beautiful character despite the weird hair, the tattoos and the nose rings. It's a good movie, but I would rather see the Swedish version of the movie.
I read the book first and thought that they did a good job on this movie. They manage to keep the people who did not read the book from asking "What does that mean?" It kept me and my friend (who did not read the book) on the edge of our seats. Very graphic.
Very well done and acted, I thought better than the orginal.
Good movie can't wait for the next one from the trilogy to come out
This film gets a solid "A.." When you are captured by almost every scene and you are transported to Sweden and caught up in a rich family's plots...and you're not even aware that you're in a theater, that's a very good film. If you read the book beforehand, it helps you see who are the "good" guys and who are the "bad" guys.
