The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – Movie Review
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vanger’s are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.
This is another subtitled film, this one’s in Swedish and it shouldn’t be missed. The story is about a young woman who is very tough and gets involved with a journalist who’s been framed. The movie is sort of a cool thriller dealing with computers and cell phones and hacking and good guys and bad guys. It’s a little long, it’s two and a half hours, but you really won’t notice the length, and you will be absolutely enthralled with the movie. It’s about righting wrongs, second chances, and revenge. It’s brutal and violent but surprisingly innocent, well paced and brilliantly acted. You care enormously about the characters. So five stars for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
