The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Reviews

Al Alexander
The Patriot Ledger

Fincher takes repeated stabs at creating depth but seldom draws blood in attempting to flesh out characters that just aren't that interesting.

William Bibbiani

Feels surprisingly tame thanks to weakened characters and story changes that rob the mystery of much-needed suspense.

Irish Times

Was it really worth the effort? For all Fincher's famously fanatical control, he can't dispel the stench of half-baked cheese that hangs over the source material.

Ultra Culture

Unable to make sense of Larsson's already confused source material, Fincher's film soon lapses into hypocrisy.

The ultimate poseur movie... [A cinematic] temporary tattoo, a way of feeling underground without ever committing to anything real.

Immaculate style, questionable substance.

It's easy to see why David Fincher wanted to make it, but hard to shake the feeling that perhaps he shouldn't have bothered.

What he has delivered is adequate, but it doesn't have any flavor - and of all the things Fincher is, "bland" is not usually one of them.

A waste of a great director's time.

Dragon Tattoo offers a handsome package built on rickety foundations, hoping to pass inspection on good looks alone.

Once the hype dies, this movie will be best enjoyed as a drinking game. Down a shot of Absolut every time Craig whips his glasses on or off and you'll be blitzed by the halfway point.

Big Picture Big Sound

Surprisingly sanitized version of the Swedish blockbuster has little resonance in this Americanized form. Stick with with Swedish version - both book and film.

I'm not sure I've seen a more superfluous film that Fincher's pointless second take on a story that was served supremely well onscreen so recently...

Mr. Fincher's impressive skill is evident, even as his ambitions seem to be checked by the limitations of the source material and the imperatives of commercial entertainment.

Seeing Fincher's version is like getting a Christmas gift of a book you already have.

Fincher's Dragon Tattoo is a faithful adaptation that brings the dazzle but shortchanges on the daring... It's gloriously rendered but too impersonal to leave a mark.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

It's stylish, if not exactly subtle, and daringly brutal for a Hollywood movie. It's also so uneven and overlong that it may leave non-fans wondering what all the fuss has been about.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo can't quite transcend its junk foundation or...the familiar beats of the other adaptation.

Even Fincher's elegantly gruesome style can't turn this Swedish noir into the meditation on evil and corruption that it fancies itself to be.

Ho, Ho, Anal Rape? Wha?? A boring, bland, exploitative movie with TWO graphic anal rape scenes? This is exactly what I want to see on Christmas weekend!
