Rapace goes out of her way to insure you never forget her Lisbeth Salander, a diminutive gal with a colossal chip on her shoulder.

A clever story of murder and mystery interspersed with various acts of cyber-crime and corporate intrigue, it's the most refreshing thriller in recent memory.

The final result is an adaptation that's just about as successful as its literary predecessor, with the film occasionally exceeding the book in a few areas...

Dragon Tattoo is from the beginning far more about it's hero's than it's villains which is a pleasant change. It's dark and dismal and beautiful and human and everything a crime film should be.

Stieg Larsson's ... millions of fans [were] waiting to pounce on any missteps ... Fortunately, director Niels Arden Oplev has got things right.

Usprkos toga to je Larsson i kod nas ario i palio po knjiarama, hrvatski distributeri dosad nisu imali razumijevanja za vedsku trilogiju

It's really quite ingenious in a rather basic way.

Very few murder mysteries are as dark as this one. Fortunately, there is also some light in this movie to offset all that darkness.

Met with much success throughout the world, and one must wonder if its rather old-fashioned mystery feel had something to do with it.

Fans of the book have been disappointed in this workmanlike adaptation, but coming to it with no expectations it is quite involving...

It's not surprising David Fincher has put his hand up for the remake, as the subject material is right up his alley, a la Seven and Zodiac but an English-language remake seems so pointless (as usual) given the quality here.

An engrossing and classically suspenseful story

The film version by director Niels Arden Oplev is a faithful adaptation of the novel...perhaps too faithful to work completely as cinema, but well-produced nonetheless.

[S]ee it if you love movies with compelling characters doing fascinating things and overcoming tremendous obstacles to get to an immensely satisfying end.
July 4, 2010
Director Niels Arden Oplev recognizes Larsson's affinity for the structure of American mysteries, and gives the film a slick Hollywood pacing that keeps it constantly driving forward without ever sacrificing the inherent brains or guts of the story.

A stylish mystery that both conforms to the genre and departs from it in interesting ways.

It may not address every need of a commercially conscious viewer, but those with enough patience will be rewarded with something rich - and revelatory.
