I went to see the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on Tuesday (cheap night!). Having read the books, watched the Swedish version, I have to say I think the US version was better (how often is an American film better than its Euro counterpart???)
I thought it was weird that they would re-make a movie so soon after the Swedish one, especially since it was shown over here with success. But once I heard David Fincher was attached, and Daniel Craig (who is EXACTLY who I pictured when reading the book), I was intrigued.The fact that I sat through a movie who story I have read and seen before, I was still on the edge of my seat, and I was surprised to find that I liked Rooney Mara's portrayal better than the original, she showed a bit of innocence, but was still believably tough withdrawn. Oh and the opening credits were kinda amazing...a Fincher opening never disappoints! I can always tell if I really liked a movie, by if I am still thinking about it the next day - and I imdb/googled the crap out of it the next day lol.
Have you read or seen it? What was your opinion?
