Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) accepts an invitation to surreptitiously investigate a forty year old unsolved murder on behalf of the victim's uncle, Swedish industrialist Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer). Meanwhile, tattooed hacker Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), hired to investigate Blomkvist, discovers the truth behind the conspiracy that led to his fall from grace.

Thrown together by fate, the unlikely duo uncovers a secret history of murder and sexual abuse festering beneath the veneer of Sweden's industrial past, all the while drawing closer to a quiet evil waiting to engulf them both.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

 "..AWESOME REMAKE.."

Number 1  Reviewer Number 1 DVD Reviewer Top 100 Games Reviewer Top 10 Gadgets Reviewer Top 10 Toys Reviewer

The original versions of these movies are amazing and its hard to see a remake being that good but it actually does work very well, the story is great and rich with detail and stays pretty close to the original only making a few several minor changes that dont matter, not enough to affect the overall movie, the cast was great Daniel Craig played Mikael Blomkvist very well but the real star is Rooney Mara who is amazing as Lisbeth Salander, she is almost as good Noomi Repace. Basically if you love the book and you love the original movies you will really enjoy the remake and being in English does make it much more comfortable to watch for those who dont find it easy keeping up with subtitles. This is a very dark twisted smart sexy violent thriller thats amazing to watch so be sure to check it out.

 The best feel bad film of the year!

Why release a Hollywood version of Stieg Larsson's 30million selling novel just two years on from the choice Swedish adap of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Noomi Rapace as the instantly iconic title character Lisbeth Salander?
Apart, that is, from the obvious 30m people have read the novel, a lot of them can't be bothered to also read the film. Because it's directed by David Fincher. Meaning it's a Hollywood retake in geography only (and even then, Fincher's opted to keep the story in Sweden rather than transpose it), and meaning we're guaranteed the kind of uncompromising, adult themed entertainment Hollywood excelled at in the late 60s and 70s.
So welcome to the feelbad film of the year, a blockbusting thriller about sex, sexual violence and institutionalised abuse, based on a book originally entitled Men Who Hate Women, centred on an angry, subjugated, socially maladroit heroine, and shot entirely in wintry greys, hypothermic blues and jaundiced yellows. With a cold, onerous score by Trent Reznor.
The plot, for the uninitiated, sees disgraced, disgruntled journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) hired by retired industrialist Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer) to investigate the 40 year old disappearance of his niece, Harriet (Moa Garpendal).
The killer, for she is presumed murdered.
Eighty minutes in, Blomkvist is joined in his investigation by Lisbeth (Rooney Mara), a hacked off hacker who hides her vulnerability beneath a carapace of piercings, tats, black leather, serrated fringes and open hostility. Together, this oddest of couples unearth a ghastly secret.
It is to Mara's immense credit that she emerges from Rapace's ink black shadow to imprint her own design on Lisbeth, her face capturing each contradictory emotion roiling inside. This role, this performance, will change her life she is literally unrecognisable from The Social Network's preppy East Coast scholar Erica Albright or as Nancy in the ill-judged remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street.
Craig does the job well, bringing weight and much needed touches of humour, though lacks the everyman quality of Michael Nyqvist's Blomkvist.
And as usual Fincher's direction is immaculate. His Girl might lack the propulsion of Se7en or the slow-burn desiccation of souls quality of Zodiac, but it is a controlled, mesmerising, beautiful thriller scarred by scenes of unshakeable brutality and breathless tension.
If you thought the US version will untangle the plot and tame the violence? Then Lisbeth's T shirt says it all. Changed ending aside, Fincher's take is as faithful as it is fearless. And Mara rocks.

 AS GOOD AS IT GETS!!!

Being a massive fan of the books and origional films i decided early on that this is a film i wanted to see and i must say i was blown away. It is a well acted and well directed film with great characters plus a great score by Trent Reznor. David Fincher knows only how to make great films and this is another example. Did the origional Swedish films need to be remade??? No but it was and done in Sweden to keep the disturbing feeling of the origionals. I actually even preferred Rooney Mara's performance as Lisbeth which is some achievement...so good i paid to watch it twice...must see. Enjoy

 Fine Film!

Never read the books or see the original film, Finchers name on the credits drew me in & i'm glad it did. Visually it looks stunning, the whole cast are excellent & I loved the ending. Not sure just how 'Swedish' it really is but even at 2 hrs 40mins it doesn't outstay its welcome.
