The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011) Movie Review
Released : 2011
Story (from Netflix) :
When a young computer hacker is tasked with investigating a prying journalist, their separate missions become entangled amid a decades-old conspiracy. David Fincher directs this English adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s novel.
I can easily see why this movie is getting so many award nominations. It’s amazing in every aspect. Now coming for someone who is a fan of the book this movie not only met by expections but blew them into a million pieces. Every aspect of this film is perfection. First off the story without spoiling anything is easily gripping while making it as to where you never really know what is going to happen next. Also Danial Craig and Rooney Mara play their roles perfect. They both fit into their character well and are very likeably. Rooney also makes Lisbeth quite hot in a weird goth way. (Random fact). The direction of this film is also great as to where it’s always exciting to watch and for a movie clocking in at 2 and a half hours there is not a single second that is spent on something meaningless and never once did I feel like the time was dragging by or that it was taking too long. This movie easily deserves every film award it can get. Also I feel like they handled the rape and torture scene quite well but with that it was also insanely disturbing to say the least but it got the message across. Seeing the film though there was actually a woman that had to run out the theater during it. The scene was done in a classy way though.
Overall though this is a must see. If you know nothing about the films / books or you know everything this movie will still keep you entertained. For the graphic scenes it also has a great story and extremely likeable characters.
