Hot on the heels of the 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' comes the sequel, 'The Girl who played with Fire'.

The new film sees Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) and crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) once again caught up in a brutal murder investigation. Having served his prison sentence, Blomkvist returns to Millennium intent on exposing a billion dollar sex trafficking ring.

When two of his researchers are murdered, Salander is framed for the murders and emerges as the police's chief suspect.
Unconvinced, Blomkvist attempts to track her down and find out the truth, but secretive hacker Salander goes on the run and soon stumbles upon secrets of her own past.

Lisbeth and Mikael are back, as the titular 'girl' and journalist Mikael Blomkvist respectively, although they spend almost the entire film apart. As someone who hasn't read the books, I'm unaware of how faithful that is, so I'll just address the film as a sequel to the last movie. 'Dragon Tattoo' stood out for me as having a searingly intense and brave storyline for the hacker Lisbeth, and a challenging 'everyman' plot for Blomkvist, and while the shocks and abuse are slightly less for Lisbeth this time around, the story is a cleverly wrought idea centering around a new journalist's investigation into sex-slavery. Just as the story is about to go public, all hell breaks loose. Lisbeth finds herself on the run (not good for a girl with a distinct lack of social skills) and Blomkvist finds himself in an uphill batle to try to catch a determined bunch of criminals who have a lot to hide. There are some good villains this time around, mainly showcased by Mikael Spreitz as a towering blonde wall of muscle with a good line in menace and a nicely twisted nerve disorder.
The story is terrifically told, having just the right feeling to it. It never races like its more frantic American cousins of this type, but the plot proceeds sensibly and largely believably from one revelation to the next - most of them well worth the wait - until the film's sudden explosions of credible and exciting violence. The acting is uniformly excellent, and the story is very well directed to its brutal and exciting climax. One of the most startling revelations is gently underplayed with dignity, and once again Noomi Rapace's Lisbeth is essentially what 'the man' role in a Hollywood equivalent would be - uncovering most of the facts and doing most of the action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Film of 2011 3 Nov 2010
At 59 years of age, the best books in my life have been Lord Of The Rings, and Steig Larsson's Millennium Trilogy. Poles apart, but from a captivating 'must keep reading' angle, that's how it is.
Whilst reading the books, I smiled and doubted anyone could play Lisbeth Salander, so quirky was her character, and with such an odd and skinny body. But then we didn't know Sweden, much like they had Steig Larsson tucked up their sleeve, they also had Noomi Rapace - and the rest of the cast, of course.
Like the books, the movies are wonderful, dark timepieces set in a beautiful country, and despite much being omitted from the books to fit the 2 hour movie time-slot, the pace keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Read the books, watch the movies, you will not be let down by doing either and in any combination. The books have sold millions of copies for a very good reason, and the films will match them in the fullness of time. Top-Notch.

5.0 out of 5 stars The video that played with my mind... 9 Oct 2010
WOW! Read the book then watch the film. I didn't think it would be possible to match the gripping tale a told in the written word but this film really succeeds. The fact it is filmed in Swedish is a definite positive - not that I speak a word of the language - but the subtitles work well and it's a gripping watch from start to finish. Well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars The girl full of fire 8 Aug 2010
The late Stieg Larsson centered his Millennium Trilogy around cruelty towards women -- and the movie adaptations don't hold back either.

The second movie of the trilogy, "The Girl Who Played With Fire," is a tightly wound thriller that is almost as good as the first. It lacks some of the raw, wild, dark energy, but it tangles together some razor-sharp social commentary (sex trafficking) with car chases and conspiracies. Best of all, it still has brilliant performances by Michael Nyqvist and Noome Rapace.

A year after "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," Millennium magazine has a new reporter -- Dag Svensson (Hans Christian Thulin) and his girlfriend are doing reports on sex trafficking and prostitution. But then Mikael (Nyqvist) finds both of them dead in their apartment, and Nils Bjurman (Peter Andersson) -- the cruel "guardian" who raped Lisbeth -- has been brutally shot in the head.

Since Lisbeth (Rapace) just returned to Stockholm (and threatened to shoot Bjurman), she becomes the No. 1 suspect in all three murders. Even though, y'know, she had no motive for two of them.

Of course, Mikael doesn't believe that she did it -- especially since a hostile blond giant is going around beating up anyone (a trainer, a casual girlfriend) who might know Lisbeth's whereabouts. As Lisbeth goes on her own dark mission, she tells Mikael that he should look for someone named "Zala." But when Mikael starts hunting for information on this mystery man, he also learns more about Lisbeth's dark past...

Lisbeth Salander was something of a mystery in "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" -- we knew she was troubled, a brilliant hacker, and had been in a psych ward.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sequel as good as the first 2 May 2011
The second of the Millennium trilogy like the book was no disappointment. The twists and turns in the plot keeps your interest. Noomi Rapace plays Lisbeth with great conviction and quality - she is the character in the books - brilliant. Again the film is over 2 hours but holds your attention throughout. If the concluding episode is as good I can't wait to watch it. Michael Nyquist leads the rest of the film in a desperate chase to save our heroine and the will he/won't he keeps you guessing. Cracking finish.
