I recently saw this movie and to be perfectly honest, I found it kinda boring. I don't see what the big deal was.

I still haven't seen this one, so I can't say. But I really enjoyed the Swedish trilogy.

I did enjoy it. I thought it was very interesting and I was at odds about who the guilty party was until almost the very end. Mara was really great in this movie...she held her own playing that part and although it started a little slow, I believe that was for the benefit of knowing who our character in this game were and how they would all be connected.

It what terms kind of boring? Like long talking heads, learning too much for no reason, or the story was just simply boring?

just wondering because I'm still on the fence about watching it. When people only talk about a rape scene to me I lose interest lol

alycakes3406d ago

There is plenty of action and drama and suspense once it gets going. It doesn't take that long either. You don't have to worry about them hiding anything either...they show a lot and it's very dramatic and even harsh in one scene.

I recommend it and I can't wait for the next one because it solved the mystery but it left us hanging at the end with the characters.

Crazay3406d ago

I personally found the movie to be a little drawn out. Too much talkie talkie not anything else. I mean it felt to me like the movie was all kinds of investigation and discussion of who's who all leading up to a climactic finale that lasted 15 minutes then it was over.

It's not a bad movie, I dunno....I may need to try watching it again.

Only one way to find out! Go see it. David Fincher has a great track record. Trent Reznor once again did the musick. Overall the movie was excellent IMO.

jony_dols3406d ago

It's a film to be experienced in a cinema, so if anyone watched that DVDscr that has been floating around for a while, then they missed out.

It is by far the superior adaptation of the book in my opinion. I find it incredibly irritating when people refer to Fincher's film as a remake. (That's the equivalent of saying that The Dark Knight is a remake of Tim Burton's Batman!)

I prefer the ending in this one better than the Swedish version but I still can't decide which one I like better overall.

But I'm definitely buying this day one. Love this movie!!

gaden_malak3406d ago

Haven't seen the Swedish one but the American one is a horrible portrayal of the book.

spunkee3113406d ago

I didn't know any of the Dragon stories before watching this movie. So I got to experience the movie without having any prior knowledge. The movie overall was excellent. I love Reznor doing the score. He puts an extra touch and effort that most composers won't do.

Having seen both I gotta say the Swedish version is slightly better. Though tbh I don't understand why they bothered to try and remake it when its like 95% identical to the original. Scene by scene its the same, though the pacing seemed to have gotten forced a bit.

The only things to compare are the actors and the ending. Well I really think Rooney Mara is getting a bit too much praise, the role itself is very deep so there is plenty of room to build the charactor, but I found her troubled loner persona like her ever changing hairstyle, forced.
At the end of the day you have to compare the 2 and I think hands down noomi rapace was just more believable.

The ending is slightly different, and I don't thank hollywood for forcing in a twist solely to complete their checklist. Minor but totally unnecessary. Same with her getting him a gift at the end, the audience has long known she cares about him, but she IS a damaged loner, and only opens up in her own way. Pointless hand-holding of the audience leaves me with a bad impression.

Might sound harsh, it is a good movie, but the original is only 3 years old and is fantastic. Anyone interested should just watch the swedish one, and read the very minor changes in the remake.
