Watched Jul 10, 2012
Having already seen the remake, seeing the original film has now confirmed two things for me.
1. This story holds absolutely no interest for me. I find zero suspense in the material, and in my opinion everything that happens, all the twists and turns, are extremely forced.
2. David Fincher is one of the most hit a miss directors working today. He does nothing with the remake that wasn't already done with this original telling. Its practically the same movie.
In the end, I feel I have to give the film three stars simply because that is what I gave the North American version. All the acting is very good, as is the direction, but that is all the praise the movie gets. Having now watched both versions of this story I now have zero interest in continuing the trilogy.
