For one, I don’t quite understand all the hate this movie has been getting. To preface, I have never seen the original Danish movie but I do think this film was an interesting and entertaining watch. This I believe is one of Jake Gyllenhaal’s best performances as he acts his heart out in this film. Overall, are there better movies out there? Sure. Is this at all a horrible film? Under the circumstances they filmed in I personally thought what was delivered was a solidly made thriller.
