    I was a little disappointed as they decided to stick with the Swedish backdrop. Was hoping for more personal tweaks from Fincher. In the technical aspect, slightly better than the original movie. Btw, the book dominates both the films. 8 years 12 months ago

    It feels a bit like an unnecessary shot-for-shot remake of an already good film based on an even better book. 6 years 8 months ago

    Fantastic delivery from Fincher, once again. One of my favorite directors.

    I was floored when I learned that the female lead was NOT in fact the same actress who plays Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish adaptation (of the book). Eerily similar, eerily chilling performances. I love both women for their brilliant and strong roles. For some reason I had the wrong notion of Noomi Rapace playing Lisbeth in both films, I'm not sure why but I think it's in part their physical similarity, the striking image I have of Lisbeth in my head and all those little details, mannerisms, etc.

    One of the things which impresses me a lot is that Rooney Mara has such and impeccable accent as Lisbeth that I wouldn't be able to tell her apart from a native Swedish speaker even when I have Swedish ancestry myself and have conversational fluency in Swedish. I've even taken pride in having a very good ear for dialects, so this was one of those things which made the film even better.

    I was a bit afraid of Daniel Craig ruining Mikael Blomkvist's character for me after seeing Michael Nyqvist nail it so nicely in the Swedish version, but no, great performances all around.
