The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

The first film in the American three-picture adaptation of Stieg Larsson's The Millennium Trilogy. Stars Daniel Craig (Casino Royale) and Rooney Mara (The Social Network), directed by David Fincher (The Social Network, Fight Club).

Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Craig), ostensibly hired to write the memoirs of Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer), recruits badass, troubled computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Mara) to help investigate the 40-year-old murder of Harriet Vanger - Henrik's beloved niece. The odd couple work to unravel the mysterious and gruesome history of the Vanger clan, who live on the isolated Hedeby Island in Hedestad.

Larsson's thrillers have sold 50 million copies in 46 countries, originally made into a film trilogy in the novel's native Sweden.

Winner of Best Editing, Academy Awards 2012.

Leaner, meaner, more high-powered, stylish, and deftly directed.

A fastidiously grim pulp entertainment that plays like a first-class train ride through progressively bleaker circles of hell.

It moves like a mad dog, looks like a hi-def dream and is deliciously cast.

This brisk, intelligent thriller lacks social and political commitment.

It is a muscular, overwhelmingly confident movie – and its brutal violence is thus even tougher to take.
