I should probably preface this little review by admitting that I’m not that person who is hard on film adaptations of books. I mean – let’s be real – I loved the Twilight and Hunger Games books and movies.
…ahem, anyone still reading…?
Anyway, the other night I finally got around to watching The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which I read last year.
After wiping the drool off my face from the sight of my dream stud Daniel Craig, I was quickly impressed by how well the film portrayed the characters and storyline in the book. I personally loved everything from the opening credits to the music, cinematography, and acting. I thought that Rooney Mara was brilliant as Lisbeth, and don’t even get me started on the nearly flawless chemistry between she and Craig/Blomkvist.
If you didn’t read the book, the movie will still make sense and is great on its own. I, however, am going to be grabbing The Girl Who Played With Fire ASAP so I can know what happens next…
Have you read or seen The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo? Thoughts?
