THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

v
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo isn't just a replica of the original. It's an effective moody / creepy murder mystery in its own right.

Having not seen the Swedish version, I can only say the American-made film is super crafted from a technical standpoint.

You won't forget this film and certainly not the girl with the dragon tattoo. She has a tortured past you won't believe and steals the whole show.

She WILL win your sympathy
!
It's not often a book gets made into a great movie; and even rarer when it's done twice.

But The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has that unique distinction.

This beautifully filmed murder mystery thriller starts out looking for a missing girl, but soon turns into a historical search for a serial killer with the help of one of the most intriguing characters in history -- a female computer hacker with a mysterious past.

Rough, bleak, and not for the faint of heart. 
David Fincher, a master of high cinematic style and violence at its most outer limits, has directed the most effective movie version of Stieg Larsson's Swedish serial killer novel.

The film is about a crusading Swedish investigative journalist and a antisocial computer hacker who team up to solve an old mystery.

Fincher, who directed pictures like Seven and Fight Club, is known for his unflinching vision, and there's no doubt that the flick will push the edges of its R rating.

There are some rape scenes in this movie, and there are people doing violence to each other, but that IS the story.
