    Good trilogy, even though I recommend to read the books.

    The more complete adaptation, I'd be far more likely to return to these than to Fincher's version.

    This extremely disturbing and unpredictable mystery gave me so much love and respect for the fearless Noomi Rapace. Her tale of personal growth winds surprisingly well around the redemptive search for the truth of one Swedish reporter as he delves into the dark and twisted secrets of a powerful old family.

    Good film, surprisingly (after reading of its high praise) unoriginal for what it is, which is a straightforward murder mystery thriller. Kept me interested throughout (though I suppose it did lag towards the end) but afterwards felt a bit "is that it?" Must have liked it enough to want to download the next 2 films...

    I have read the Stieg Larrson books and seen the Fincher version of this move, so I was a little skeptical to watch it because it would be the third time I sat through this story. Well, I am happy I did sit because it was great. The Swedish version of the movie veered from the book a lot more than the Fincher version and it was better off for it. This movie was better paced and streamlined and eliminated…

    Swedish drama thriller based on the novel of the same name by Swedish author/journalist Stieg Larsson. This is actually the first book in the trilogy known as the Millennium series, published in Sweden in 2005, and by August 2009, it had been sold to 25 countries outside Scandinavia! Of course, it was smart to make a movie out of it! It was directed by Niels Arden Oplev, and the film stars Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace.

    Another "Chris finally read the book and wanted a rewatch" entry.

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actually deviates from the book quite a bit, and it's better for it. The film cuts right to the chase and removes a few major plot points from the book so that the first half of the book, essentially setup and fluff, is virtually removed and we get a lean, mean film.

    The role of Lisbeth Salander is emphasized greatly in this film…

    The swedish original with that amazing lead performance. Yeah. Last half hour is kinda pointless though.

    I've been longing for a good film that can drag me into it's world. You know, the type of film where you don't think about the fact that you're watching a film. You just do and think about it afterwards. Being that the offers from Hollywood have been offering less and less of those kinds of quality films I came across this one.

    Although the depicted events are very raw, and certainly not for the faint of heart, it can't…

    Good Norwegian mystery film based on the popular novel. Noomi Rapace steals the show as the girl with the titular tattoo, she nails the right balance between eccentric and multi-dimensional. The film has problems coming loose from its literary roots, moving from one plotpoint to the next without too much regard for style or cinematic expression. That said, the mystery did engage me and I enjoyed the unlikely bond between the two leads.

    It reminded me at times of "True Detective," which is high praise in my book.

    The central who-dun-it is the most compelling. The subplots involving the estranged daughter and the corporate fraud were built up tremendously, but then pretty quickly extinguished after the who-dun-it concluded.

    A Garota com a Tatuagem de Dragão é o primeiro filme sueco da série literária 'Millenium' e serviu como base para o filme de 2011 de David Fincher.

    Enquanto Fincher soube construir muito bem o clima de suspense e fez, sim, um ótimo filme que gostei bastante, a versão original sueca é mais feliz com a história e com o desenvolvimento dos personagens.

    Lisbeth é muito mais durona, resolvida e sabe muito bem o que quer, ao contrário do final…
