    From him (Fincher), we get – what? – a faithful adaptation that brings the dazzle but shortchanges on the daring. show more

    The resulting film is neither better nor worse than the Swedish film, but it's more cinematic. show more

    Fincher's electrifying storytelling makes the most of unsettling visuals, large casts, complex plots and sharp dialogue. show more

    I loved the book and this movie was good, but I liked the Swedish version better. I liked Naomi Rapace better the Rooney Mara in the lead. The Swedish version was more intense and I thought the acting was better.

    brilliant story of suspense and action, the film has a simple script and the story flows well is tied correctly, film research with an established and well-told story, the downside is due to the bad choice of the actor who plays the villain, was noticeable from the beginning who was responssavel crimes, but the end it was still surprising.
