    Good. Powerful. One thing I'd like to add is that the opening credit sequence is quite impressive. Very well done.

    The choice for David Fincher as director for the first American part of the Millennium trilogy is surprising. Not alone was there an excellent Swedish version of the book, but with a huge project like this Fincher could easily be upstaged. “The Girl with the Dragon tattoo” is a good Fincher film: loyal to the book, the well known dark tones, controversy and memorable lead performances by Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig.

    The film is long, but the pacing is…

    David Fincher's remake/book adaption of the acclaimed thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo had better be something special for it to excuse the fact that it's a remake of a film only release two years earlier. And yes, it is pretty good.
    It's better to watch the film knowing nothing I think, same goes for any films involving investigations and murder. Nevertheless, briefly the film is about a journalist who searches for a woman missing for forty years. A…

    An interesting whodunit but most of the dark/shocking elements rang pretty hollow to me. It's safe to say I was disappointed with this film.

    Amazing from a technical standpoint with some really great performances. However, I do feel like most of Fincher's other works are more substantial and this film suffers a bit from being too long.

    Hace apenas un día que he terminado el primer libro de la trilogía Millenium, 'Los hombres que no amaban a las mujeres', el cual me encantó, y tenía muchas ganas de ver la adaptación de ese grandioso director llamado David Fincher. Pues bien, a pesar de un par de detalles que no me han gustado y algunos problemas que arrastra por ser una adaptación de un libro bastante extenso en contenido (el film, aun durando dos horas y media, se…

    What to say about the American take on this great novel. Well I know I'm gonna get a lot of shit for this but for some reason I preferred the Swedish version of this. It's something I can't explain, I preferred the Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara but still had more of a liking for.

    But still its always good to see another persons take on a great novel such as this. Got to say though seeing such changes from…

    I love this movie. It's one of the few oddities in cinema where I actually prefer the American remake to the foreign original, though I suppose this isn't entirely a "remake" because it also could be called a different adaptation of the same literary material. It certainly rivals Fincher's best films. Rooney Mara is stunning, giving an emotionally and occasionally physically naked performance. The story is great, for starters. I won't explain it. It's far too complicated, so just google…

    The first hour of this movie was incredibly captivating. The setup of the characters, the atmosphere, and the mystery was just so perfect. The cinematography alone is so captivating. Rooney Mara was fantastic with one of the best female performances I've ever seen. She truly played the obscure, compelling character really well. If the rest of the movie had kept this up, I was ready to give it a 5/5.
    But...
    It didn't. I didn't have a problem at all…

    Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist teams up with a brilliant hacker and loner Lisbeth Salander in order to solve a 40-year-old mystery that has plagued the scion of a powerful family. David Fincher you did it again, You made another dark but brilliant film. the last time I sawed Rooney Mara was in the 2010 remake a nightmare on elm street and she was terrible in that movie but in this film she is fantastic and to be honest I never know she was a great actress, Daniel Craig was also great in this film and so did the other cast.
