“If you haven't seen the Swedish version of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," the American remake should please you. If you have seen the original and decide to take in director David Fincher's copy- excuse me, "reimagining," prepare for déjà vu.

A year ago, I saw the Coen brothers' update of "True Grit." I enjoyed the new film, but it was a peculiar experience because - aside from new actors - I felt as though I was watching the 1969 John Wayne classic verbatim. I had that same feeling as I watched Fincher's much-hyped thriller. Fincher gets a lot of things right in adapting Stieg Larsson's novel: the wintry sterility of Swedish landscapes; casting the perfect actress to play the enigmatic Lisbeth Salander. But Danish director Niels Arden Oplev also got those things right in ” read more

"7.1. Tavallaan olisin halunnut nähdä Fincherin näkemyksen Stieg Larssonin vaikuttavasta teoksesta ennen ruotsiversiota, koska nyt huomioni keskittyi lähinnä kahden eri elokuvan välisten erojen bongaamiseen enkä päässyt uppoutumaan tunnelmaan toivomallani tavalla. Kovin vähän uutta näyttäisi Fincher löytäneen ainakin sisällön osalta, ja alkupuolella filmin jännite tuntuu hajoavan oikeastaan aina kun Lisbethin ja varsinaisen juonen välillä poukkoillaan. Mysteerikin tuntuu selv"

" If you've seen the original, there's really no compelling reason to run out and see this. It's a remake made almost exclusively for the subtitle-phobic. It's too long and methodical and intricate and dark for the "I wanna see stuff blown up good" crowd. And it doesn't add anything in terms of style or subtext or (imaginary) David Fincher brilliance that will wow any "art" audience that has seen the original. In fact, the most notable thing present is the crazy-cool title sequence (which I some"

SJMJ91 posted a review 2 years, 3 months ago

Every bit as brilliant as the Swedish version.

“As we should’ve all gathered about now, remakes and second adaptations from another film/novel have proved themselves as massive gambles that have become either a huge success (e.g. The Departed, King Kong, Scarface) or a huge disappointment (Psycho, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Planet Of The Apes). Although the Swedish version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was released in 2009, the idea of a second film adaptation but in English after only two years was a rather unorthodox and unusual one as it ultimately became quite a shock. However, when it came to our attention that David Fincher was selected as director, the anticipation to watch it began to build and expectations were high. Amazingly, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo overcame all obstacles and made itself worthy as one of the be” read more

Best remakes. (20 movies items)

"Original film: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2009) This being the second film adaptation of the Swedish novel by Stieg Larsson, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo succeeds with a heavily positive critical reception, which is rarely the case of remakes in this generation. David Fincher who previously directed mystery-thriller Zodiac in 2007 executes this American version amazingly and neither tries to surpass the original version nor even lose any dark tone that came from it. It's definitely on"

2011 In Film - Best to Worst. (73 movies items)

" One sentence review: Quite honestly, having the audacity to remake an American version of the Swedish film based upon the Swedish novel is not a wise idea especially after how recent the Swedish version was, but miraculously David Fincher with Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer etc provide us with a beautifully executed remake that perhaps doesn't surpass the previous version but executes and relives it's brilliance exquisitely.

Film Journal 2011 (88 movies items)

" December 26th (Cinema) - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a story tailor made for David Fincher's sensibilities. His knack for lighting a scene in florescents and still making it look dark is the perfect mood and no one is better equipped to capture Lisbeth Salander than with his dark and brooding aesthetics. He also enlisted Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to create a pitch perfect score that melds with Lisbeth's attitude including that sensational cover of Immigrant Song that was in the tr"
