Swedish (2009) Version is Superior

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo just adds to the list of crummy American remakes. First of all, what is with the opening credits? Are we watching a James Bond movie? Just because Daniel Craig is in it? The opening credits are completely disconnected from the rest of the film.

Then the accents are entirely messed up. Daniel Craig kept turning on and off a "Swedish" accent and then mixing it with his real accent. However, I think Craig made a good Blomkvist in the end.

Noomi Rapace is a far better fit for Lisbeth than Rooney Mara. Mara is just not as convincing in her character portrayal. I lost count of the number of times I had to see her naked during the film. This is what really cheapens the movie for me. The nudity in the Swedish version is tasteful, this film is anything but tasteful. And I'm not complaining about the rape scenes, those are important plot points to the films and books. However, unnecessary nudity is entirely pathetic. Mara's accent is bizarre too, it sounds like she has no nose.

Please don't make the other two, just..don't.

Not awful, but pretty pointless.

I'm not averse to a remake if it's done well, but there has to be a reason for it. For example:

*If the original wasn't much good (definitely not the case).

*The original is really old and needed updating (a remake after just two years is ridiculous quite frankly).

*The remake offers a new take on a story (nope, it's pretty much a scene for scene copy).

I really can't see the necessity for this film, the original is superior in every way - there;s even an English (dubbed) version on the Blu ray for those people that are allergic to subtitles.

Craig and Mara are fine actors, but they pale in comparison to the original cast in this story. Noomi Rapace in particular portrays Lisbeth Salander as gritty, troubled and above all interesting and (in my opinion) is a lot closer to the character in the book.

Not an awful remake, but just so unnecessary.

Rooney Mara is so cool

I watched this movie because Rooney Mara! And she doesn't let me down! Actually, when I was watching, I put more attention on her than whole story and I thought she is one of the most important reasons make this film great. Lisbeth Salander hides herself in a cold shell but she can be very sensitive deep in soul. Her superb skills give her a condition to live like that but she still needs to face evils alone. Hope life can treat these people with kind. Love Rooney Mara!!!
