Way less interesting than i expected and i was counting of course on a good story, same lvl as the first one, same intensity and continuity on character development. Changing the director was a bad move because the new one failed to make an impression and i don't like at all his cheap style. Now i hope for a strong finish with the 3rd one. 6.25/10
It's not that it's a bad ride, but perhaps it's slightly disconnected from the first. Had it been more explorative of its characters, this could've achieved a more dramatic and dense tone. I found it somewhat dull up until Zala's identity was learned. And was I the only one who jumped near the end when Lisbeth was looking for Niedermann inside the house?! I was caught off guard.
I knew this one was going to be tough to film. The book is really complex and requires some really good budget to recreate some stuff with perfection as Stieg Larsson used a lot of imagination into this. Even tho, the result was good and the following film should fill up the blanks.
