Description

Swedish thriller based on the bestseller by Stieg Larsson. In 1966, 16-year-old Harriet Vanger (Ewa Froling) disappeared without a trace from a family gathering on the island owned by the powerful Vanger family. Nearly 40 years later, disgraced magazine journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) is contacted by Harriet's uncle, powerful industrialist Henrik Vanger (Sven-Bertil Taube), who asks him to write the history of the Vanger family and find out what happened to Harriet. Joining forces with troubled young computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace), Blomkvist starts to delve into the past of the Vanger family - and unearths a history more sinister and violent than he could ever have imagined.

Synopsis
A discredited journalist and a mysterious computer hacker discover that even the wealthiest families have skeletons in their closets while working to solve the mystery of a 40-year-old murder. Inspired by late author Stieg Larsson's successful trilogy of books, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO gets under way as Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander are briefed in the disappearance of Harriet Vanger, whose uncle suspects she may have been killed by a member of their own family. The deeper Mikael and Lisbeth dig for the truth, however, the greater the risk of being buried alive by members of the family who will go to great lengths to keep their secrets tightly sealed.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[T]he film hits a nice groove in the interplay between Craig and Mara, together and apart, and Fincher displays his usual mastery at explicating the finer points of an investigation." -- Grade: B+
Scott Tobias (20 Dec 2011, )
Box Office
"The opening credits are a gorgeous music video made for a darkened theater: black liquid drips into morphing shapes, flowers and faces emerge, scream or fuse or kiss or contort or shatter."
Sara Vizcarrondo (13 Dec 2011, )
Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Zaillian's script comes down to a series of fraught scenes between his leads and a distinctive gallery of supporting characters, given weight by Stellan Skarsgard , Robin Wright and the iconic London actor Steven Berkoff."
Roger Ebert (19 Dec 2011, )
Empire
5 stars out of 5 -- "Noomi Rapace transforms 23-year-old, tattooed computer hacker Lisbeth Salander into a far more complex, formidable character than Larsson's elfin fantasy figure."
Empire Staff (1 Aug 2010, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[T]his action/art-house hybrid miraculously manages to be faithful to Larsson's novel without seeming slavish." -- Grade: A-
Chris Nashawaty (9 Jul 2010, )
Hollywood Reporter
"This fastidious, technically stellar Hollywood telling of one of the great literary sensations of recent times is highlighted by a bewitching performance from Rooney Mara."
Todd McCarthy (13 Dec 2011, )
Movieline
"[I]t succeeds as a sharp piece of entertainment craftsmanship. The ripples of pleasure and dread it generates are nearly indistinguishable."
Stephanie Zacharek (20 Dec 2011, )
Rolling Stone
"Mara is astonishing as Lisbeth Salander....Fincher's GIRL is elegantly austere..."
Peter Travers (19 Jan 2012, )
Sight and Sound
"This is a finely honed genre thriller, but it also continues Fincher's preoccupation with the persistence of age-old urges in the modern world."
Sight and Sound Critic (1 Feb 2012, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "GIRL is a controlled, mesmerising, beautiful thriller scarred by scenes of unshakeable brutality and breathless tension."
Jamie Graham (1 Apr 2012, )

Customer Reviews

Better than the American version, albeit further from the book

Reviewed by on

Visceral, dramatic and holding no punched, this movie is tense and really portrays the feeling of suspense and mystery that the book conveyed extremely well. It strays from the book more than the American (Daniel Craig) version, but is the better movie in my opinion
