Product Description

Two journalists on the verge of exposing their story in the political magazine Millennium about an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden are brutally murdered. They key suspect is Lisbeth Salander the troubled, wise beyond her years genius hacker, whose finger prints are found on the murder weapon. Mickael Bloomkvist, Millenniums publisher who befriended Salander during a previous investigation, is alone in his belief in Salanders innocence and swiftly plunges into an examination of the slayings which implicate highly placed members of Swedish society, business and government. Fully aware that Salander is fierce when fearful, he is desperate to get to her before she is cornered and alone but she is nowhere to be found.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 8 Aug. 2010
Format: DVD
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.

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.

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.

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.

So I know, everyone loves the books. However, coming at this film from a purely cinematic view point I have to say that this second installment in the Millenium trilogy is sadly lacking, and here's why:
Whilst The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo [DVD, directed by Niels Arden Oplev, was a beautifully photographed and well observed journey into the dark heart of Swedish misogyny, this outing lacks any of the visual flare or driving narrative of it's predecessor. Daniel Alfredson takes over directorial duties, and it must be said he almost immediately wastes all the good will I had coming off the first film. Visually the film is an amateurish hodge-potch of shakey camera work (and not in a good way), with about half of the film being shot from low angles: yes, we get it Daniel, some characters are imposing, let it go. But Alfredson doesn't let it go: the film carries on and on with these visual cliches until I was literally rolling my eyes in frustration.
Then there's the turgid narrative. It is neither interesting nor original. This might be more Larsson's fault than Alfredson, but some of the characters are absolute wafer thin cut outs: an uber villain without nuance or redeeming feature? You got it! A lumbering henchman with a strange medical condition that makes him impervious to pain? Coming right up! It really did feel like sub-Bond characters grafted onto a more serious story around the exploitation of women. Couple this with plot holes you could drive a bus through and it just irredeemably cheapens the whole thing. I'm sorry: sex trafficking is a serious and real issue, and it deserves a better treatment than a narrative that lumbers along like the bleached-blonde bad guy.
