"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" by Yojimbo

An emotionally damaged young researcher helps a disgraced investigative journalist reopen the case of a series of murders that occurred 40 years ago. Having heard so much about this "international best seller" and the fact that David Fincher deemed it worthy of a remake meant that the idea of this film intrigued me, but despite its weighty reputation I felt seriously let down. Technically, TGWTDT is absolutely fine. The performances all solid, the pacing and direction well executed and the photography is attractive and stylish. Unfortunately all these good qualities are built on quicksand because the plot is, in a word, bollocks. It's exactly like one of those 90s detective TV shows (Inspector Morse sprang to mind). But worse. It involves a girl who is emotionally traumatised (you can tel...

Noomi Rapace Kicks Some Serious Butt!

Sometimes mistakes are a good thing - I got tripped up by a little misunderstanding and ended up catching this great DVD as a result. I had seen a blurb about casting for a film named ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ and was just intrigued by the title. In researching it further, it looked like it had already been released and was now available on DVD. Now I was really confused, but ordered it anyway. Come to find out, the current release is a Swedish export (with subtitles, so please note). The casting news I saw is for a US-based remake of the same film due out in 2011. Nonetheless, after watching this, I was thankful for the mix-up.

Swedish author and Expo magazine contributor, Stieg Larsson, had written a few novels before his death and they were printed posthumously. These books ...

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo review

Journalist, publisher and part-owner of the monthly magazine Millenium Mikael Blomkvist meet Henrik Vanger, a retired industrialist and former CEO of Vanger Corporation to resolve a murder of the Vanger family and Harriet's loss. Lisbeth Salander, a surveillance agent with Milton Security, hacks into Blomkvist’s computer. Her new guardian Nils Bjurman physically and sexually abuses Lisbeth. Mikael discovers and seeks the person who tapped into his hard drive. Both team-up to solve the case and the real perpetrator erupts and explains everything to Mikael.

A film that needs patience since it starts slow but eventually picks up as the case is further explained. The score was appropriate, screenplay superb and performances (especially the female lead) were incredible all throughout. ...

Novel into movie, finally something right

“The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” is a film that is captivating, suspenseful, beautiful, intriguing and disturbing. It is a film that proves that some films really can be just as good as the novel which it is adapted from and fans of the novel will definitely be pleased by it. It is one of the best mysteries to be released in the past few years. Although it is quite lengthy at 153 minutes, not a scene is considered unnecessary and every single scene plays a role in the unraveling of the story. “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” is the first film in the Millenium trilogy, of which the second film, “The Girl Who Played With Fire” will be released later this year. Mikhail Bloomkist ( Michael Nyqvist), a reporter in hot water, is asked by Henrik Vanger (Sven-Bertil Taube) to investigate the d...
