The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: It should go without saying that no adaptation is going to please everyone; it's impossible to encompass all the nuances of one medium across the transition to another. Which makes comparisons not exactly a waste of time but certainly counterproductive, as it becomes difficult to judge a work for what it is rather than what it isn't.

  • Excerpt: Unless you’ve been in a cave (or missing) the last several years, then you’ve undoubtedly heard of Stieg Larsson’s series of books. These consist of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , The Girl who Played with Fire and The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest (reportedly there’s a fourth book, but Larsson’s girlfriend is holding it until the money is correct).

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) Review

DoBlu
27 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Lisbeth Salander, here played by Rooney Mara, is a film character scholars will dissect for eternity. Whether it’s the source novels, the screen adaptation(s), or the performance, the quirks and sometimes unspecified background create genuine intrigue into her brilliance. A social outcast and some would say deviant misfit at a glance, Lisbeth has no sense of her place or the people around her.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
26 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Much has been made of David Fincher and Steve Zaillian's adaptation of Stieg Larsson's posthumously released novel ( Men Who Hate Women ). The 2009 Swedish film of the same name is spoken in both hushed reverent tones and loud boisterous proclamations as one of cinema's most compelling achievements. So why remake it? For the same reason there have been umpteen million productions of any given Shakespeare tale: the artists behind them have something to say.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

High-Def Digest
16 March 2012
  • Conclusion: David Fincher's 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' is a beautifully-crafted motion picture with a challenging murder mystery at its center. Fincher openly embraces the dark overtones of Stieg Larsson's novel and turns it into his own gothic vision of the morbid, violent desires within the hearts of wicked men.

Cinema Blend
21 December 2011
  • Excerpt: "What is hidden in the snow comes forth in the thaw." That's the gloriously intense tagline on the poster for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , and oh what a tangled web is revealed on the windswept Hedeby Island, home of the wealthy industrial Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer) and his fractious family.
