  • Thriller

    Rated RR, sex, murder, rape, twisted, implied, photos of victims etc ... but with all that said I was amazed at the thriller to the end, she keeps surprising you, and the story was very well written, wish I had watched the extended version just to see what was taken out.

  • Original was more meaningful

    Dunno why this has the same rotten tomato score as the original. This one left out a lot. I haven't read the books, but the original film touched heavily on the nazi connections. This one felt more like a mindless thriller. It wasn't horrible but I'm just saying don't waste your time when there's a better version only a few years older than this that's also much better. I thought Daniel Craig wasn't a good pick for this role either.

  • My absolute favorite feature film ever..Fincher's greatest work.

    By Davidd512
    The American version of this first of the trilogy (vs the full Swedish versions, much less Stieg Larson's Millennium Trilogy books which inspired both sets of this film are all amazing) is the greatest adaptation of the film, in my humble opinion (after watching both versions many times (The full Swedish Film Trilogy), as well as having read the Millennium Trilogy, many times.. It's a very dark psychological thriller, which I believe to have been David Fincher's greatest work to date. It's only too bad, that a legal fiasco concerning mainly "intellectual property "rights"" stopped the screen writer, director, Daniel Craig and the ever gorgeous Rooney Mara (her greatest work, ever, and a very atypical film for her to star in, let alone act in, as well as being Daniel Craig's greatest work) will never bring the rest of the trilogy to life or see the light of day.. This saddens me, greatly, as this film was just a hint of what could have been. Trent Reznor (of Nine Inch Nails) also did his finest feature film score to this film, working with Fincher on The Social Network, this film, and Gone Girl, along with agreeing to work together for future feature films scores, only a taste of his musical talents, skill sets, and natural born gift with the art of music. The final song in the credits is also the work of Trent Reznor, with his wife, Mariqueen Maandig in their band "How to Destroy Angels", with Reznor singing back up vocals was an entirely proper ending to this highly sad, deep, and highly dark psychological thriller, that brings home the film's ending (won't give it away.. sorry). The saddest part of all, is that the full trilogy will never see the light of day, as it would have surely been my favorite adaptation over the Swedish film trilogy, as this first film just touches my souls in a very special way, as Fincher, Craig, and Mara, and Reznor (along with the screen writer) made this adaptation of the Millennium book series 1st of three of the full story into a beautiful but saddening work of art and pure masterpiece.. I highly recommend this film for anyone whom loves true deep, highly dark, and twisted psychological thrillers (my favorite film and book genre), as it is a pure masterpiece.. ;( \m/
  • Great movie!

    This is a really good adaptation of the original movie. Unfortunately we probably won't be seeing The Girl Who Kick The Hornet's Nest. 😔
  • Not bad, not great.

    This was Mara's movie. She was fantastic! Although this version wasn't bad, Craig was a complete bore. What could have been a first class movie was hampered by not selecting a better male lead.
