The Girl Who Played With Fire
The Girl Who Played With Fire – Movie Review
Mikael Blomkvist, publisher of Millennium magazine, has made his living exposing the crooked and corrupt practices of establishment Swedish figures. So when a young journalist approaches him with a meticulously researched thesis about sex trafficking in Sweden and those in high office who abuse underage girls, Blomkvist immediately throws himself into the investigation.
Pick of the Week!
The Girl Who Played with Fire is part two of the trilogy of the series that began with the international sensation: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. So we have the two original stars back – Lisabeth, who is a genius hacker who has a troubled past and Michael Bloomkvist is the journalist who befriends her. All three of the movies are based on the books and this one, I think, will be no less popular although equally violent, but equally smart. You care enormously about the characters, even if the twists and turns keep you off balance, Everybody is smart and the bad guys are really bad, and the acting is terrific. This movie is chock full of adventure and sex and even a little bit of rock and roll. So The Girl Who Played with Fire is four and a half stars.
