Critic Reviews for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Steve Zaillian's script trims some the novel's fat, keeping the film a lean, mean and frightening beast.
Whilst Fincher doesn't exactly blow the original out of the water, he does add enough to make the project feel less like an unnecessary retread than it otherwise may have.
Fincher takes repeated stabs at creating depth but seldom draws blood in attempting to flesh out characters that just aren't that interesting.
David Fincher's Hollywood take on the Stieg Larsson bestseller is a sleek yet somehow soulless adaptation.
A compelling ride for die-hard fans of the book series, dramatic thriller enthusiasts, as well as anyone who enjoys Fincher's darker works.
Audience Reviews for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
This American adaptation of Larsson's best-seller is just as intriguing as the Swedish version but Fincher manages to create much more tension and maintain a more fluid pace - and it has a magnificent performance by Rooney Mara, who is definitely the star here.
Only David Fincher could make a 'style over substance' thriller this impressive.
Really enjoyed this movie. And it can be watched more than once. You almost need to take notes at the beginning of the movie though.
