I found myself too often trying to figure out what was going on. I don't think they did a good job packing a rather complex story into the movie.
Okay. Now I'm back to not wanting to watch it. LOL Maybe I'll just read the books.

The Swedish version is the best, but because it isn't in English, it was a little hard for me to follow the action, and keep up with the subtitles. Would have like Daniel Craig in the first version. The Swedish version got me so hooked, I watched all three parts of the movie, straight through in one sitting. Luckily Netflix has a pause feature.

Geez! Just watch the movie, and when you see the guy that looks all rapey, just close your eyes.

Watched it at home awhile back. I cheered out loud at 2am when she retaliated. That scene alone makes the movie worth watching.

Daniel Craig gained 20 pounds and let himself go soft so people would see 'Mikael Blomqvist' when he was tied up, and not 'James Bond' .

Wife and I listened to Girl With the Dragon Tattoo as a book on tape while driving on vacation in 2010. Then we got the book, then the other books, then the movies. While there were a few miscues in the books (Glocks don't have safeties, and if there is a .45 Magnum, I want one!), the books are excellently written overall. The author intended to write more with the same characters, but he died too soon. Gritty, raw, shocking... Yes, but well worth reading and/or watching (the Swedish versions, anyway).
And I too cheered at the payback she got on the a$$ who assaulted her.
