    Synopsis


    The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
    A discredited journalist (Daniel Craig) and a mysterious computer hacker discover that even the wealthiest families have skeletons in their closets while working to solve the mystery of a 40-year-old murder in this David Fincher-directed remake of the 2009 Swedish thriller of the same name. Inspired by late author Stieg Larsson's successful trilogy of books, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo gets under way as the two leads (Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara) are briefed in the disappearance of Harriet Vanger, whose uncle suspects she may have been killed by a member of their own family. The deeper they dig for the truth, however, the greater the risk of being buried alive by members of the family, who will go to great lengths to keep their secrets tightly sealed. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Thrilling all the way through

      An investigation where there are no clues left to find, little if any cooperation from those around you, any of whom could be the killer you are looking for. What’s the plan? Is there one? Mikael Blomkvist (played by Daniel Craig) is co-owner and writer for Millennium magazine and has recently suffered a professional setback that could bankrupt him and his publication. An unscrupulous man with alleged criminal dealings has won a libel suit that might end his career. Soon after, however, Henrik Vanger (played by Christopher Plummer) makes him an offer. Find out who is responsible for the disappearance and likely death of his niece Harriet 40 years earlier. He also believes that whoever’s responsible is a member of his family. The family that lives on the same large estate they did during the disappearance and somehow manage to avoid speaking to each other. Blomkvist is promised a substantial salary in addition to evidence that will bring about the demise of the man who brought the libel suit against him. When he asks if he might employ a research assistant, Vanger’s (Plummer’s) lawyer recommends the woman who did the background check on Blomkvist before they hired him. A troubled loner with a peculiar appearance by the name of Lisbeth Salander (played by Rooney Mara). Now I have no doubt that the books on which this film and its 2009 Swedish language predecessor were based on are better than the movie. Not because I’ve read them. In actuality, I haven’t read a book since high school. But since people who do read the books first ALWAYS say that the book is better, than it must be the case. It couldn’t possibly be an effort on their part to sound and feel superior. Putting that aside, Craig as Blomkvist was a surprisingly wise choice and Plummer, along with others, make for an intriguing, albeit despicable Vanger family. But the real star is Rooney Mara as the brilliant, beautiful, and unstable Lisbeth. Despite a few small roles in other films and guest appearances in numerous television series, Mara’s most recognized for her performance in The Social Network. That role was child’s play compared to Lisbeth. This is truly a breakout performance that, one would hope, could bring a slew of bigger roles and a long successful career.

      I watched the original Swedish verion of the trilogy a while ago and really enjoyed it. I never read the books so I am probably not getting the most out of the story but the movies are great. If you have seen the original girl with a dragon tattoo I would almost recommend passing on this version as it is very similar throughout. I almost felt like I was watching the same movie with english dubbing instead of captions at times. It is still a great story and the acting is good, so if you haven't seen the original, this is a good option to start you off on the trilogy. Even though the english version of the next two movies aren't out yet, you could watch this one and finish of the "Millenium" trilogy (Girl who played with Fire and the Girl who kicked the hornet's nest) with the Swedish versions of the films and not lose a step.

      Another great film in Fincher's arsenal

      I have yet to see a David Fincher film that fails to impress. Each time he steps behind the camera he puts on a clinic (check out the 5 minute opening credits sequence to his film, Se7en - film students should have to watch this in their first year!) It doesn't hurt when you have top notch actors and great source material, which this film has - in abundance. Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander is mesmerizing. She totally immerses herself in the role, and although the other acting is terrific (nods to Daniel Craig and Christopher Plummer) Mara outshines everyone, in spite of her dark character. As with most Fincher efforts, this one comes with a supplemental package of bonus features that should satisfy even the biggest of fans. Housed in a gorgeous digipak case, this is one you will not regret picking up.

      Surprisingly, One of David Fincher's Better Films

      Wow. This film is mesmerizing. There was not a single sub-par performance by the actors, the settings were dark and beautifully shot, and although the swedish film came before it and was a good flick, this version manages to draw you in to the case in an even deeper and personal way. The cover art of the BluRay is minimalist and beautiful. I would, however, try to pick this one up in-store, as I noticed some of the slip cases were lightly damaged (due to the fact that the outside is a thick cardboard-like material, probably easily scuffed up in the factory). If you aren't OCD about your movies, It shouldn't be enough to bother you, but just a heads up.

      excellent movie, excellent book. the hollywood version was amazing, especially the intro with the remake of led zeppelin's immigrant song. it absolutely blew me away in the theater. i still prefer the swedish version in swedish with english subtitles because the swedish language adds to the film. if you love this movie, read the book because there's lots more to it. and definitely checkout the swedish version of the movie. you can rent from the "box"

      As a long-time fan of David Fincher's work, I'm not surprised to find this rendition of the Scandinavian original to be thoroughly worth its salt. This version synthesizes elements from the 1st & 2nd of the original trilogy & adds its own elements. Suspenseful & creepy, it stands up well with Fincher's body of noirish thrillers. The only thing that stuck in my craw was the totally useless & abrasive title sequence.

      I made this purchase after finding it at great price for $9..99. I could not pass up the opportunity. This film is worth of a movie night with popcorn. It is a little long but nevertheless a good film. Daniel Craig does an absolute great job and Rooney Mara is phenomenal. The bonus extra features are my favorite as I love to learn about the making the movie. I hope who reads enjoys the blu ray.

      Knowing this was to be made in the States a year in advance. I rented the Swedish versions first. Thought it was great, subtitles and all. This version from director David Fincher ( Se7en) was no slouch either. Pulling you in the story quickly with that awesome opening credit sequence. Great cast, with great suspense in tow. A worthwhile remake, even if you've never seen the other one.
