Let’s Review: THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

What? What did you say?

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.

That being said, if you are very sensitive about sexuality and/or violence, do not go see this movie. They might have gotten off a little easy with just an “R” rating…

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 story is well-told, with its disturbing images and all. It sucks you in and leaves you wanting more, which of course there will be, until The Girl Who Played With Fire.

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!

Watch the trailer:

    It’s better than the Swedish one. I hated that movie and this one was better. I am shocked they got away with a R rating, I thought for sure they’d have to bring down the rape scenes and sexual content to get that. But nope, they were pretty accurate to the original. HOW did they get away with a R rating? I think they also suffered from not really translating well the plot of the movie to the trailer and/or warning audiences about the graphic material. And why would they ever put this out during a Christmas week? There’s no way families are going to go to this movie. Put it on in a few months on a slow week and it’d probably do fantastic, but I’m not surprised it ended up not doing great in the box office.
