Better than the Swedish original.Good film of a good previous film and great bookBy roncoach (365 reviews) from suffolk , 06 Jun 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Not a classic,but very good indeed.
They said David Fincher could not better the Swedish version. IMHO he has done so. And he has remained true to the book trilogy.
Daniel Craig plays his part well, big-name co-stars all do well; but Rooney Mara steals the show with an unforgettable performance.
Retaining all its original Swedish flavour and scenery, this film is way above the average for movies at this time.

Not too taught but a good filmBy a customer , 29 Mar 2013Even though the film is a long one, it never felt like it was time-wasting, padding or dragging. The storyline is a simple one and the personae very real to life but the only complication is that there are so many people involved in the family tree that is under investigation, you soon lost track of who was who! However, the numbers of people is relevant to the story so even this minor distraction did not grate too much. Acting was average and a couple of the scenarios a bit unbelievable but well-worth watching
Why remake a good film so soonBy a customer , 23 Mar 2013If you have watched the Swedish version don't bother watching this, it's just a jumped up hollywood remake that wasn't nessary. The Swedish version has better Cast. If you have no intention of watching the swedish version go ahead and watch this one.
stay clear of remakes...By ratbikeboy (4 reviews) , 22 Mar 2013Why watch this when the original is 100% better, the only thing that stops this from a no star rating was the music by Trent Reznor and Rooney Mara was superb....just watch the original trilogy its a masterpiece comparted to this remake for stupid Americans who can't read subtitles...
See the swedish originalBy J3wly (2 reviews) , 19 Mar 2013Have already seen the original which I thought was much better. This film didn't capture the atmosphere quite as well as the first and the casting seemed a bit off. If you've not seen the original you would probably find it better than I did.
Loud background music.By a customer , 18 Mar 2013The music in the film is far too loud and makes it very hard to hear the dialogue at times.
