The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo update feed

Mike Prates posted a review 3 years, 5 months ago

“Tiny as a sparrow, fierce as an eagle, Lisbeth Salander is one of the great Scandinavian avengers of our time, an angry bird catapulting into the fortresses of power and wiping smiles off the faces of smug, predatory pigs. The animating force in Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium” trilogy — incarnated on screen first by Noomi Rapace and now, in David Fincher’s adaptation of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” by Rooney Mara — Lisbeth is an outlaw feminist fantasy-heroine, and also an avatar of digital antiauthoritarianism.

Her appeal arises from a combination of vulnerability and ruthless competence. Lisbeth can hack any machine, crack any code and, when necessary, mete out righteous punitive violence, but she is also (to an extent fully revealed in subsequent episodes) a” read more

“Based on a Swedish Novel published in 2005, made its English Debut in 2008.

This recent 2011 adaption is quite a gripping one, which has made his way to Oscars Nomination for 2012.

While the film’s two hour and 38 minute run-time is likely to turn off some moviegoers who don’t enjoy sitting that long for one movie in a theater, it’s hard to imagine any onscreen scene or exchange that doesn’t belong in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and that is the beauty of the movie that keep the viewers gripped and mystified under the story line.

This movie without question one of the most provocative films of 2011 – and will deliver a compelling ride for die-hard fans of the book series, dramatic thriller enthusiasts, as well as anyone who enjoys Fincher’s dar” read more

"En ole America fuck yea -riimeikkien ystävä, mutta pakko myöntää, että Fincherin teos ylitti odotukseni ja pieksi ruotsalaiset 6-1. Ohjaus, kuvaus ja Daniel Craig/Rooney Mara -yhdistelmä toimi. Ja! Eritoten Trent Reznorin ja Atticus Rossin yhteistyössä toteutettu leffan musiikki oli viis kautta viis. Opening credits oli Immigrant Songilla höystettynä kyllä hienoimpia mitä oon pitkään aikaan nähny."

“The Girl With Dragon Tattoo, is wonderfully directed by David Fincher, what impresses me is that Rooney Mara, has taken the role of Lisbeth Salander seriously and with professional-approach, and no doubt a hard-work brought her Oscar-nomination. I have been fan of original Swedish version, and I was repeatedly thinking, whether if this movie would impress me or not, since I came to know about David Fincher, attached to the project, I imagined the dedication and mastery Fincher provides to his project; and no doubt the result is all there! A near perfect movie!” read more

"Well, it is not the kind of story I like. It is just the old crime investigation we are all used to see in books and cinema. However, two things are extraordinary in this movie: acting and editing. When I say acting, I mean Rooney Mara's acting. What an amazing character! And thanks to the editing and all the short scenes thing, a 2.5 hour long film keeps a thrilling pace and does not become tiring or boring."

“Fantastic adaptation!

Once again, David Fincher can't disappoint! I changed completely my opinion about Daniel Craig; looks like Mr. Bond is not just a pretty face on the screen, but a really good actor!

Rooney Mara deserve all the congratulation she can have; the little Erica Albright who pass completely unnoticed in The Social Network reveals herself as a future actress that we can count with!

Well done!” read more

“***************SPOILER ALERT***************

Unfortunately for me this movie doesn't do it.

As much as I loved and rooted for the Swedish (original) movie and series, primarily because the characters looked and acted so real, this American version is plain pitiful.

The titles/intro, not to mention the music throughout the movie, were one of the worst I've ever seen. So already there, I wasn't thrilled...

Rooney Mara is the worst interpretation of Lisbeth, who (in the Swedish movie, tv series and book on which everything is based) is not prone to show emotions. I regret to say that in several scenes of this American movie by Fincher, emotions are clearly visible on the character's face/throat. Plus, I really felt that she was trying to 'imitate' the o” read more

"Having now seen the original film and this David Fincher directed remake I can say that I think I like them equally for different reasons. The three areas that this version has over the original are the cinematography which looks great, the score by the same composers from The Social Network, and the ending was told out in such a way that it was easier to understand. Other than that there isn't a lot different between the two versions other than the language they were made in. If the main inspir"

" Note : First of all, congrats for Rooney Mara. I was really skeptical when I heard which she would portray Lisbeth Salander but her performance was more than convincing. So, even though it is a completely unnecessary remake, even though it is not better than the first version, Lisbeth Salander remains one of the most fascinating characters in a motion picture and the story was still really spellbinding.

A very good movie

“I found it really difficult to judge this movie... It has 'The Departed' syndrom all over it. I mean, it is a completely unnecessary remake of a movie which was already perfectly fine in the first place. What makes it even worse is that the first version was released only 2 years ago and this 'new' version is way too similar to the first one. Still, if you put those facts aside, it is and remains a damned fine and entertaining thriller. First of all, congrats for Rooney Mara. I was really sceptical when I heard that she would portray Lisbeth Salander but her performance was more than convincing, even though 2 or 3 times what she said or things she did were completely out of character. So, even though she wasn't as great as Noomi Rapace (impossible task, I'm afraid...), she was really good.” read more
