Movie Critics
Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[It's] an advantage that the actors are not conventional star types....The film is filled with strong supporting roles."
Roger Ebert (7 Jul 2010, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film really grips in the climax..."
Kim Newman (7 Jan 2010, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[V]iolent, sordid pulp stewed in an atmosphere of Swedish austerity....This one doesn't just play with thriller conventions -- it puts them to work." -- Grade: B+
Owen Gleiberman (9 Jul 2010, )
Los Angeles Times
"[T]he franchise's secret weapon is back with brilliant young Swedish actress Noomi Rapace again channeling the alienated, unwilling to be broken tough chick that Larsson envisioned and Rapace imbues with such eerie authenticity."
Betsy Sharkey (9 Jul 2010, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "Relentless suspense allows THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE to hold you in a viselike grip. But it's the performances of Nyqvist and especially Rapace that keep you coming back for more."
Peter Travers (8 Jul 2010, )
Wall Street Journal
"[Rapace] continues to redefine our notions of a contemporary heroine....She's a movie star unlike any other."
(9 Jul 2010, )

Customer Reviews

A touch too long, still great movie

Reviewed by on

The movie is a tad too long at just over two hours, in the sense that it does feel like it drags at some points, but this was probably done to keep it as close to the book as possible which it does do well. Well acted (once you realize that this will not contain Hollywood style over-acting). All in all, not a bad movie
