DVD artwork on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
It has come to our attention that there has been some confusion on the DVD disc art as it appears to look like a bootlegged copy. Please note that the disc art is in fact the final approved disc art provided to us by the filmmakers. It features the handwriting of director David Fincher, as a homage to the character Lisbeth Salander.

By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
I always thought an English redo of TGWTDT (or the Men Who Hate Woman as the original Swedish novel is clumsily titled) was utterly pointless. From watching the end result you'll be mystified as to where the $90 million budget went (the 2009 version cost $13 million). Thankfully the movie itself offers a bigger mystery to distract you from that, but globally the 2009 was far more successful and made more money. It seems that $90 million was spent simply to appeal to Americans who couldn't be bothered reading subtitles.

The story is mostly the same to Niels Arden Oplev's interpretation, with a few relatively minor deviations and contractions. Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig, not even bothering to attempt a Swedish accent) is disgraced journalist who is hired by Henrik Vanger, a wealthy old businessman, to solve the 40-year-old disappearance of his favorite niece Harriet. He takes the job to keep busy while his name and reputation turns to mud.

Mikael throws himself head-first into the case but soon requires an assistant and so he recruits Lisbeth Salander, a misanthropic genius who did the background check on him. Together they uncover decades of dark family secrets and the wrath of a still active killer.

Like Niels Arden Oplev before him, David Fincher almost gets the balance between visual and verbal storytelling right, but loses his grasp on the multiple characters and references to dates, places, and people. Some of the dialogue that should orientate the viewer regarding such things is too quiet, quick, and mumbled. Inattentive viewers will not find this film easy to follow. It does however have far superior photography to the 2009 version, which I thought looked flat and plain and was shot nasty Super-35.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected 22 Dec 2011
By L. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A disgraced financial journalist, and a young antisocial computer hacker join forces to solve the 40 year old mystery of a teenage girl's disappearance. As they do so, they get drawn into serious crime and corruption, deadly family secrets, and a string of unsolved murders of young women spanning fifty years, which puts their own lives at unbelievable risk. Will they solve the mystery before they become history?

When I saw the original movie series about two years ago, I was awestruck by mostly the awesome acting of Noomi rapace, and the movie's visual style, and it's inherent raunchiness, which is more common in stylish European thrillers than slick Hollywood movies. When I heard there would be an English version, I thought this would be a hard act to follow, and without Noomi Rapace as the female lead would not be the same, because she was so much an integral element of the original movies success.

In the meantime I listened to the audiobook version featuring Simon Vance, which I also found quite enjoyable. He does all the voices including Lisbeth with a slight Swedish accent that veers toward cockney. The story is much more detailed with many elements glossed over or left out of the original movie.

So, when I heard it was about to be released, and saw the trailer, and understood the pedigree behind this movie with David Fincher directing, and Daniel Craig as Blomquist, I made a point of going to the evening show before its official opening today.

Inevitably, one cannot help but compare with the previous experience. Definitely, the fact that this is in English is the greatest justification for the remake, so for many people who are distracted by subtitles this will automatically be a better experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars The original movie, turned up to 11 27 Jan 2013
Format:DVD
This remake will inevitably draw comparisons to the original Swedish-language film. Although I enjoyed the original, I have to say that this is the better of the two. The high-budget James Bond-esque credits sequence sets up the sense of foreboding that director David Fincher does so well (he probably fancies himself as a Bond director) and the film has a slick, glossy look that suits the dark source material. As might have been expected, the production team hasn't missed the opportunity to ramp up the relationship between Blomqvist and Lisbeth, and this serves to heighten the tension towards the end of the film. The acting throughout is top-notch, and the lovely digital cinematography makes for a reference-quality blu-ray. This is a recommended purchase, even if you have the original movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'BETTER THAN EXPECTED' 29 May 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
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.
Blu-ray Special Features -
* Dig deep into the 'Vanger' archives with nearly 4 hours of immersive behind-the-scenes footage.
Including interviews, rehearsals, screen tests, and more.
* Also includes an audio commentary with director 'David Fincher'
