suspect like myself, many of you will have seen and enjoyed the 'Swedish' ( dual language ) trilogy, in truth, not so long ago.
Must admit when i heard that there was a 'Hollywood' remake of the series on the way, i did think, why ? when the original was so damn good.
Well, i wasn't going to give this the time of day, however, curiosity got the better of me.
Telling the story of how, 'Mikall Blomkvist' (Daniel Craig) a recently discredited journalist and the unconventional 'Lisbeth Salander' (Rooney Mara) team up to try and solve a 40 year old mystery, when 'Henrick Vanger's' neice dissapeared without trace at a time when a series of unsolved murders had taken place.
The bond 'Mikall' and 'Lisbeth' develop during the investigation will stand 'Lisbeth' in good stead as, in the not to distant future, her past rears it's ugly head.
I didn't think i'd enjoy this remake, however i did, and providing the next two maintain the quality of this presentation, i'll look forward to watching them..............Though I've not heard that they are doing so ?
This did do far better in the Box-Office than many that enjoyed the Swedish version might have given it credit for, it really was a decent re-make. behind
version, though I do like many I suspect, prefer the original.
