The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a very good movie with great performance by Daniel Craig (as Mikael Blomkvist) and Rooney Mara (as Lisbeth Salander).The story is interesting and tells the story of a man's mission to find out what has happened to a girl who has been missing for 40 years,and who may have been murdered.David Fincher is one of the best directors of all time and this time created one of the best films he has done in his career,I have not seen the original movie but it is certainly that has created a great remake with suspense,mystery and some nice shots.
The film without cheap tricks is impressive and one of the best films of 2011,i personally recommend it this movie for everyone.Fincher,whom in prior years had been nominated for Academy Awards in Directing for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Social Network,was tailor made based on previous films,such as Se7en,The Game and Zodiac.The decision to film the movie on location in Sweden was an intelligent choice,as it allowed the natural elements and locations to set the backdrop.I am a fan of David Fincher's works and this is definitely a very good movie.
The opening of the movie is in my opinion,just plain awesome!Good music and an interesting visual sequence of dark fluid forming/reforming into/over human form.I enjoyed it and it really got me interested into the movie before it had started.The film runs almost three hours,but it doesn't seem like it.The pacing and energy in it is sufficient to keep your attention.That means the writing was very good too,as was the directing.Also the script is good with many interesting elements but nevertheless this film isn't a masterpiece because there isn't something revolutionary.
Here are the figures and what they mean for me when I do the rating.
