Having enjoyed the movies then their DVD versions I was surprised to discover this extended pack and had to compare it with the cinema and single-disc experiences.

These extended versions of the films are the original TV productions with much of the storyline retained, giving you far more depth to the story and the motivations of the characters, plus additional plotlines to flesh out the entire story.

This is an extra two hours of film and I strongly recommend everyone to choose this over any other current offering.

These extended sets at last make sense and are now close enough to the massive tomes by Larsson. I found the whole program captivating and the length was the least of my worries. It is a complex story and it takes some concentration to remember who is who. No familiar faces from American or British cinema to help! The Swedes have done a great job here. Tak! This is a thrilling package that will have most people on the edge of their seats. The sound is excellent and even the English dub has been done with taste to retain the essential Swedish feel. No Texan drawl or Yorkshire slang here. The picture in part one was a bit soft but got better as the rest of the tale progressed. There is no comparison with the original cut releases, this is the set to get. I had only one minor grumble: It would have been even better if the option to run the two parts together without the exit and enty sections had been available. This would have been easy with seamless branching. The paper packing got a hard time in the mail, I would have preferred a standard slim-line box. Excellent value.

Format: DVD
After watching the film versions of these highly enjoyable and intelligent books, I was delighted to find out that there existed an extended version because the second and third adaptations were quite condensed and compromised. This release features the version of the trilogy that was shown on Swedish television (and, I believe, French cable TV)and how it benefits. The overall story is gripping drama, with outstanding performances from all the main leads. The pacing is just right, and the additional scenes are crucial to the unfolding tale, with some quite subtle characterisation that was omitted from the film versions. In that respect, I would compare this to "The Godfather : The Epic" as both feature deleted scenes rightfully restored to present a more rounded story. I even watched the "dubbed" version which was very well done. Why the Americans found it necessary to remake it is a mystery. Is it merely because audiences over there are notorious for NOT wanting to read subtitles ? Otherwise itleads me to conclude that there were either financial considerations or a feeling of "we can do better than the Swedes"! In any event, this is still brilliant.

This series is as good as the book of not better. I loved the books and I love the movies and all the characters are spot-on. Also appriciate the extended version even if it means no-action for a while because its still adding value to the movie.

When these 'extended versions' were first released i thought they were simply another cash grab. Maybe they are in a little way since they didn't have to re-shoot anything and already had these different edits when they appeared on blu-ray and dvd the first time around, so they could've been included on each movie edit release as disc 2.

But in the long term they are totally worth it if you're a fan of the series. I've only watched 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' episodes so far and i'm blown away, so much more to the story is revealed and it seems to flow better overall. Each double episode for each movie is around 93 minutes long, so you don't have to watch it all in 1 sitting and the 2nd episode has a recap at the start of what went down in the 1st episode.

I don't think i'll be watching the movie edits again anytime soon, the characters will just seem so one dimensional after seeing this. Swedish or English remake? These extended versions make it a no brainer. The Hollywood film doesn't reach these heights.

I have just watched the first 2 episodes that were combined and then cut for a cinema release, there is nothing dramatic added but the peripheral characters are fleshed out and there is more of the interaction between Lisbeth and Micke which adds to the understanding of their relationship. Some other scenes are extended and help the film's flow. Definitely worth the money especially when parts 3,4,5 and 6 were cut even more for the cinema release of 'Played With Fire' and 'Kicked The Hornets Nest'.

I had previously bought all 3 Blu-ray discs of the Millennium Trilogy but despite this the temptation was too strong to resist buying this extended version set. Last night I watched the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which I had watched twice in the original theatrical version. I was amazed at the number of new scenes and I have to stress the importance of buying this Director's cut. To have cut the film in the first place was sacrilege!

Unlike some Director's cut versions you don't get the opportunity to choose the version you prefer. It is Director's cut or nothing! The viewer is also presented with different images at the beginning of the film - presumably these images were the ones which were used when the film was transmitted on Swedish Television? This is merely an observation rather than a criticism. Personally, I cannot see any justification for making the original cuts. This is a complicated story and it requires a reasonable period of time to make the film comprehensible, irrespective of whether or not the books were read before viewing the film. Even in the extended format I would strongly recommend that the book was read first before seeing the film.

The film is in 2 parts, albeit on 1 disc. As far as I am aware it is not possible to move seamlessly between the 2 parts because of the end credits and the opening sequence of Part2. Once again this is not meant as a criticism. Aside from the inclusion of the scenes which are an integral part of the story I also thought that this uncut version showed so much more of the wonderful, wintry Swedish landscape. I was much more aware of the high quality of the Blu-ray transfer. Despite the length of the film and the fact that this was my 3rd viewing, the film never dragged.
