Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An altogether leaner, meaner, more high-powered, stylish, and deftly directed affair, though similarly hampered by a too-long narrative fuse.
Fresh: When it comes down to it, this is Rooney Mara's movie, and I don't care if the second and third stories are any good as long as they are full of Lisbeth Salander.
Fresh: I don't think I've seen an actor do more with deadpan expressions than Mara does in this movie. Her face doesn't move but, whether she's tasing a man or standing in front of a mirror watching a cigarette dangle from her mouth, we respond to her.
Fresh: It's certainly worth seeing if you missed the original. If you saw it, however, there's no way of unseeing it, and nothing in the new one to top it.
I thought that Rooney Mara completely portrayed the character of Lisbeth amazingly. I was actually blown away by her performance and I thought this whole movie was amazing. It's highly disturbing but very, very good. I thought about it for weeks after I saw it.
Almost as good...
Well this a great movie, but let's be honest. The screenplay was ripped off from the original Swedish version. I've read the book and seen both movies. The screen adaptation of the original does as good a job as one could expect, but this version basically takes the adaptation adds a very tiny bit, removes the key references to Lispeth's past and puts a completely miscast Daniel Craig in the role of Blomkvist. Rooney Mara is clearly the star and almost but not quite captures the character as well as Rapace. By all means watch this movie, but do yourself a favour watch the original as well. English remake does have the advantage in the opening credits - best I've ever sen!
The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo
ّI just Cannot understand why Hollywood bothers to copy a foreign movie. The Swedish trilogy was amazing and got Oscar nominations. Whats the repetition for?
