Alright, I already wrote about how much I love the Steig Larsson books. I also loved the 3 Denmark movie versions of the books. But I recently went to see the US version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
I was really excited especially since it was based off one of my favorite books (and my favorite in the trilogy). And the movie did not let me down. I recommend that you see the movie, but I do believe that you need to know the book (so either read it or Wiki it) because since the book is so long, the movie glazes over some of the parts.
It was quite a dramatic movie which is true to the tone of the book. The soundtrack was pretty awesome also. Daniel Craig as Mikael was better than the actor (Michael Nyqvist) in the original.
All in all I really enjoyed the movie. It was dark and dramatic and very true to the book while still being a suspenseful thriller. I think you should read the book and see the movie. It’s great!in the original movie. I also believe that Rooney Mara played a much more American Lisbeth. That might sound weird, but while she was intense and dark, I think she fit the character better than the original actress (Carey Mulligan) who pushed Lisbeth to a much darker and violent character.
I won’t go into too much detail, but the story was really excellent and the movie was a fabulous portrayal. I recommend that you go see it…now!
