- Director: David Fincher
- Writer: Steven Zaillian; Stieg Larsson
- Producer: Ceán Chaffin; Anni Faurbye Fernandez
So...Fincher takes a perfectly good Swedish film and does absolutely nothing with it.
No improvements - even with the huge budget.
If anything, the pace is more sluggish, the characterisations more plastic, the soundtrack is painful...and, the lesbian storyline has almost evaporated...
For what purpose was the re-make made?
Solely for the benefit of those who can't be bothered to read a subtitle.
A cataclysmic waste of money.
This English-language adaptation of the Swedish novel by Stieg Larsson follows a disgraced journalist, Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig), as he investigates the disappearance of a wealthy patriarch's niece from 40 years ago. He is aided by the pierced, tattooed, punk computer hacker named Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara). As they work together in the investigation, Blomkvist and Salander uncover immense corruption beyond anything they have ever imagined.
