The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) review

Much like the original Swedish film, Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) is the co-owner of "Millennium" magazine and Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara) a researcher for Milton Security and a computer hacker. Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer) assigns Mikael to probe his niece’s murder, Harriet, 40 years ago. Vanger Industries CEO Martin Vanger (Stellan Skarsgård), decide to invest in Millennium magazine. Noomi Rapace was more effective than Mara in line with their wonderful character. There are times you cannot comprehend the words coming from Rooney Mara. This version had a bitter ending though the soundtrack and cinematography were effective. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo had some plot confusion, overall it’s a good drama thriller that was somewhat similar to the original, which really didn’t have to be remade in the first place.
