The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Reviews
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
The main case is strong, enthralling and attractive keeping the viewers on hold on its route but the other two tracks of lead characters may come off as a bit tiresome and even dark sometimes. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is raw, perilous and jaw dropping as it captures some of the worst phases of humanity along with some genuine performances and unpredictable plotlines. David Fincher; as always, nails it when it comes to execute a mystery or crime features and has a powerful screenplay to support adapted by Steve Zaillian. Daniel Craig justifies his part but in here, Rooney Mara steals the show by giving an outstanding performance on her parallel role with him. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is slow and takes its time on building up the characters on screen in its first act and comes off strong on its second which is the best one and then dips down on its last one as it stretches its way down the road.
Una notable dirección de David Fincher y una loable actuación de Rooney Mara. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo nos ofrece una intrigante e impactante historia.
In a conclusion which didn't shock me as much as I originally thought it would, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is more than just another great film from one of modern cinema's most enigmatic directors. It's a further development in the modern psychological thriller which hasn't been attempted before. It's true, the plot is somewhat complex enough to merit multiple viewings, but the overall brilliance of the film is enough to bring more cinema enthusiasts around for a second or third viewing on its own. Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara have an intense and volatile chemistry throughout the film, and bring a somewhat visceral dimension to Martin Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander.
However, its the psychological aspect which adds much of the film's edge. This is a dark movie with no restraint placed on the showings of manipulation, mystery, murder, and several different types of abuse which take place onscreen. Its a spellbinding film from beginning to end, with the negative aspects clearly visible as well. The first truly captivating modern psychological thriller in almost a decade.
The funny thing about this 2011 remake of 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' is that, in the hands of almost anyone else, it would've turned out to be another average, un-notworthy thriller. In the hands of David Fischer, however, it's turned into something so much more. Carefully crafted and stunning on every technical level; the movie also supports fantastic performances, especially from the two leads. It sometimes falters in the telling of its mystery and was slightly incoherent in that respect but, thanks to Fincher's magic touch, this is a remake that actually has a right to exist.
I really wish Swedish films would have Swedish actors and English subtitles. But for this film, I was happy to make an exception. There are lots of themes mixed in this story, family love gone wrong, Nazism, corruption at the top and abuse. But friendship is also one of them too.
