    Mysterious, inviting, and just amazing. David Fincher once again wins with an adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    It's a cinematic delight, filled with amazing performances and beautiful cinamtography.

    Tbh, this is getting better with age. Highly re-watchable.

    I liked this the first time I saw it, admiring the usual Fincher technical proficiency on display, but it left me a little cold (no pun intended - I love Sweden!). This time, I was truly riveted by it all and couldn't take my eyes off the movie. Direction, performances, and cinematography are fantastic. It's probably just as well that Fincher won't be adapting any more of these, because Rooney Mara is much better off personally not going through any of the further (and progressively worse) indignities that Lisbeth is subjected to.

    Bit of hard to understand without reading a book.

    It's a rare occasion 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 material. Rooney Mara is stunning as Lisbeth Salander, giving an emotionally and physically demanding performance. The story is great, The cinematography is some of the best featured in Fincher's work. The score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross is hands down the best…

    on second viewing I really enjoyed it much much more. I mean, it´s not really necessary to make it again or err…ever? I guess. well it´s one of those popular books but fincer saw something in their that it´s just right up his crime alley ( see what I did there? ;) ) I haven´t seen the original version but it´s full of great acting and visuals. I can live with that one movie, tho. no more sequels. it actually…

    Die Geschichte ist einfach gut. Von Fincher stilvoll und spannend inszeniert. Guter Cast. Toller Thriller.

    I think it's appropriate that Fincher chose to direct the English adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, as Fincher's work is essentially the dark mass-market paperback of Hollywood - effective, pragmatic, and suspenseful "page-turning" cinema that is appealing to a wide audience while still potentially remaining "big idea" in nature. Think Michael Crichton, Stephen King, Robert Ludlum, the Steig Larsson in question; David Fincher is their cinematic equivalent. This can be read as either condemnation or praise, and…

    This is my third time seeing this story played out on film (my second with Fincher’s version, with the first time being the Swedish version with Noomi Rapace). There’s a lot to like about this one: the opening credits are brilliant and set the mood of the story perfectly; the cinematography and score are both excellent; the actors are well-suited to their roles and give strong performances; and though it’s two-and-a-half hours, Fincher ensures this is briskly paced, with every…

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is an odd film in that it is both incomplete and overstuffed; so many elements -- particularly the adversarial relationship between Rooney Mara's Lisbeth Salander and her sinister social work (Yorick van Wangeningen) -- seem set up for the further films in the series, which with each passing year and commitment by David Fincher to another project feel less and less likely to ever be made. This gives the film the unusual quality of…
