The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Review: Simply Stunning

by at . Comments

Technically and stylistically, David Fincher's adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo should thrill fans of the Stieg Larsson book trilogy and newcomers alike. Simply put, the director's dark vision and aesthetic brilliance make for a movie marvel.

Casting, of course, plays a huge role in the film's success, especially when the subject has already been tackled successfully by Swedish filmmakers with Noomi Rapace as the lead.

In the U.S. version, Rooney Mara is scary good as Lisbeth Salander.

Mara's bravado is explosive and the actress deserves serious consideration for an Academy Award nomination. Throughout The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, it is difficult to take one's eyes off of Mara, no matter how much takes place around her.

Daniel Craig is also outstanding as the co-protagonist, a journalist recently disgraced for libel. For a full breakdown on why this is one of the best films of this (or any) year, just follow the link for Movie Fanatic's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo review!
