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.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! 30 Oct 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stick to the UK DVD of the extended versions 26 Feb 2013
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's not too difficult to see why 2009's Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo became such an international sensation and, even more than the more accomplished The Killing or Wallander, the gold standard of the Nordic Noir invasion even without the growing momentum of the novels to drive it. It's also at times easy to see its roots as part of a TV mini-series (the TV series version runs a half hour longer), though where the two sequels from a different director are unmistakably small screen fare, this first entry in the trilogy is very much a real movie. It's not an especially fast paced movie, using its two-and-a-half hour running time to gradually build the characters and the mystery, the film nearing the one hour mark between Michael Nykvist's disgraced investigative journalist and Noomi Rapace's emotionally and physically abused hacker even meet. That first hour isn't always entirely convincing: while the violence and abuse Lisbeth encounters is both realistic and avoids being purely exploitative by showing just enough to convey the unpleasantness without gloating over it, at times it feels like it's been hammered in none-too-credibly to make a point about the way men exploit and abuse women, partially to create a greater sense of empathy with the murder victims but at times feeling like someone's grafted a manifesto onto a thriller (the novel and film's title literally translates as Men Who Hate Women).

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the books, if not better 20 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it. 17 April 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it 24 Sep 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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'.
