    "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is a compelling thriller to begin with, but it adds the rare quality of having a heroine more fascinating than the story. She's a 24-year-old goth girl named Lisbeth Salander, with body piercings and tattoos: thin, small, fierce, damaged, a genius computer hacker. She smokes to quiet her racing heart.

    Lisbeth is as compelling as any movie character in recent memory. Played by Noomi Rapace with an unwavering intensity, she finds her own emotional…

    It's decent, but its reputation is, frankly, baffling. Apart from Rapace's performance, there's really nothing here to distinguish it from the average Hollywood murder mystery. Are the books really that much better?

    And the sequel is worse.

    I think these are better than the english-language versions.

    Hay que tanto que tengo decir sobre la pelicula en si como en su comparacion con el remake hecho por Fincher.

    Ambas peliculas cuentan con una direccion excelente pero en cuanto a la pelicula como tal creo que me quedo con esta antes que el remake de Fincher, ya que el remake dejo de lado muchos aspectos importantes de la historia y esos ultimos 30 minutos del remake me parecieron los de mas baja calidad y en efecto comparada con…

    Lisbeth Salander is simply unforgettable. Without her this movie its just a generic mystery thriller.

    A screaming, horrific anti-narrative mess -- at its best, a silly and ridiculous mistake; at its worst, an evil and cackling terror on every aesthetic foundation in the human experience. It collects all the preposterous, overwrought, inelegant information dumps that characterized the "novel," and grafts them in a sick, mutant style onto the ugliest, crudest, most objectively horrible story I've ever seen.

    This review is for the Extended Version from the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy!

    An exceptional 40 year old murder mystery that encourages the illusion of being just another cerebral whodunit! Then it pulls the old bait and switch and before you know it you're knee deep in a full blown crime thriller!

    A slow burn infused with violent scenes that will hit you like a mack truck, knocking you clear into next week!

    Awesome Swedish crime film with a nice twist. Reaches past the peaceful Swedish landscape into a gritty and dark world filled with Nazi's, rape and computer hacking.

    Definitely a stronger film than the American remake, and also truer to the book, as I am told.

    Although the remake may look gorgeous, it misses the grit of this Swedish original. The performances feel so real, with Noomi Rapace proving why she got work in the US, with everyone's favourite Prometheus.

    Which I actually liked. Quite a lot.


    The film may be long, but it is utterly gripping, and comes off as strangely epic, even though the visual…
