Saw THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO twice over the weekend. Zowee, does it work! Totally.
One of the best book to film adaptations I’ve ever seen. Of course, it’s in Swedish, so most of you will actually have to do some reading.
The main character, Lisbeth Salander, is almost as compelling on screen as in the book. If you have not read the book, then she’s pretty amazing.
There were some changes from the book. None are evident unless you really think about them, so it’s a faithful adaptaion. Lucky screenwriter to have it all laid out for him. There are some shifts with the ending and one major character relationship is wholly not there, but they only have 2.5 hours and had to cut something.
Not much else to say about it other than GO!
And, can’t wait to see the next one.
