ratbag’s review

Whilst sitting in the dark, grimacing at the gritty realism, you immediately think of how you’ve been sheltered by all the mainstream films all this time — once in a while you realise there’s a bucket of popcorn on your lap and wonder if you’ll get an opportunity to eat it …

That said, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is a gripping thriller — it’s powerful stuff so it’s not for the faint-hearted. The protagonist (the girl with the dragon tattoo) is one tough and intelligent lady — I’m looking forward the next two installments of the series.
