David Fincher's adaptation of the international best-seller is a triumph of craftsmanship over material.
quite the opposite, a failure of craftsmanship to deliver with excellent material (unlike the first film, which did so brilliantly)

Quite the opposite. The Sweedy film was a failure of craftsmanship over material, whereas the Fincher film was a perfect match between filmmaker and material....

I think you should re-read the book. If you read the book? Parts of the story were changed and important parts left out.

i agree totally with Dave S and John B. The original was certainly much better and gave more information from the origianl book. In the original movie, you learned much more about what makes her tick and why she is the way she is. It left you wanting more, not like this new version. I was happy to see it end rather than yearn for more.

This movie captured the main characters much better than the Swedish film. Of course, it did cut quite a bit, but that should only really upset purists. What this critic said is spot on
