Hoping to distance himself from the fallout of a libel conviction, journalist Mikael Blomkvist retreats to a remote island in Sweden's far north where the unsolved murder of a young girl still haunts her industrialist uncle forty years later. Ensconced in a cottage on the island where the killer may still roam, Blomkvist's investigation draws him into the secrets and lies of the rich and powerful, and throws him together with one unlikely ally: tattooed, punk hacker, Lisbeth Salander.

This is the WORST remake it is nothing like the original at all. I hated it totally and the ending was not even the same at all. I enjoy Daniel Craig's movies but this is utter garbage. I really dislike when Hollywood decides to remake a movie and make it the worst. Just see the original movie this is not worth it.

There are Nazis in the mix; they are really bad guys. There is also a very bad government official who is probably much worse than Harvey Weinstein. Then there is the girl with the dragon tattoo; she is not a 'make my day' type, but she has claws. I believe it is the character that accounts for the popularity; a case study of an abused young female who is really good at what she does while insisting on not being messed with. Ya gets ya sadistic violence and ya gets ya revenge.

Saw this movie in Swedish with subtitles. It was much better.

A good movie, although I'm glad I read the book. Some characters were never identified, although I figured out who they were. It reminds me of some of the movies made of some Stephen King's books, in that they are done somewhat poorly.

I almost stopped watching this because of the violent and very graphic sex scene. As the story moved forward I became more interested. The character of Lisbeth was interesting and well done by Mara Rooney. At times I found the story and it's characters difficult to follow, although it soon evolved into an interesting plot that kept me intrigued for the remainder of the movie. I agree with one of the other comments about the ending that did not fit into the story and certainly did not fit the character of Lisbeth.

As a result of this film, I have become quite taken with Rooney Mara, and her other film work. She's one of our best younger actors in film these days.

Incredible thriller story with great acting of Daniel Craig and for sure the girl with the dragon tattoo. I also enjoyed the Swedish version very much.

Excellent mystery/thriller from Mr. Fincher. Quite intriguing and kept me engaged and interested throughout the movie. One star taken off for unnecessarily explicit rape and torture and some choppy editing.

Unfortunately I've never had the chance to read this incredible book, I've only watched the movie. I didn't know that the movie was based on a book but if I'd known I would have searched in all the libraries for it. This movie, or I should say the book, is one of my favourite crime stories. Agatha Christie is always first place when it comes to crimes and thrilling stories, but I always keep this movie in mind. It is about a girl who disappears and her grandfather, who was her closest family member. The girl's name is Harriet and something strange was happening in her life and she wanted to tell her grandfather but he told her to wait because he was busy. Harriet couldn't wait, so she left and never come back again. After 40 years, a journalist is curious to know what happened for her. I won't spoil the rest for you. I give this movie 8/10.

A journalist and a hacker team up to solve the murder of a wealthy businessman's niece. Not going to lie I had a hard time understanding what was going on throughout the movie, I kept on forgetting names of the characters.
