They may have remade this movie from the Swedish so we wouldn’t have to read subtitles, but this one, being in English, I still needed subtitles. I did not understand about 90% of what actress Rooney Mara said.
Actors Daniel Craig (Bond) and Stellan Skarsgard (from the original Swedish one, and Mamma Mia!) are more coherent, and do a decent job in their roles.
The soundtrack pulls you into the film by putting you in a slightly jarred mood.
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO is in theatres Dec. 20 (the poster says 12-21, but they bumped it up a day)
So what did I think?
It was a very good story, but is certainly not appropriate for all audiences.
What do you think?
Did you read the books or see the Swedish film? How do the two films compare? Tell me in the comments!
