  • 5 stars "While I recently watched the whole movie, I got to say that I underestimated Daniel Craig. This man has potential and it can be seen in this very movie. I believe that he acts alarmingly bad in his Bond movies. Goran Visnjic appears to have less screen time than I have imagined, but he uses it rather sharp. And Rooney Mara... oh what a gal. The Mara family can act so convincingly well that you forget about everything else except the character. Christopher Plummer and Stellan Skarsgård make a helluva team and deserve an award for their small part. Robin Wright was almost invisible and it looked to me that she is not even trying..."
  • 5 stars "There is only one scene that bothers me in the whole movie: When Lisbeth Salander, the main character is brutally raped by her legal guardian. Hardly a viewable scene, especially by those with weak hearts. Other than this, I have to say that I've watched this movie before I have watched the Swedish, which it was based upon. The Swedish looks like it came from the 20th century, while this clearly has more budget and more familiar Hollywood names, and it even has Goran Visnjic, who, by the way, was brilliant. I didn't knew that this guy could act so good, and his character struck me by surprise (a good one btw)"
