Fincher's version and this are practically identical so knowing perfectly what's going to happen dissolved the mystery. So what i tried was to make this comparisons between the two version. Being subjective, i will pick the US version. It has more style and great aesthetics than this one. Mara was even more dedicated and her chemistry with Craig was truly great. Here Rapace doesn't have that with her partner. 8/10
Shallow and raw. Through professional skill and an element of mystery it keeps one's attention, but it's often tawdry peppered with brutal incident spelt-out in capitals in case you miss it. Though not uncommon, and far from the worst example - so perhaps an undue target - one wonders if such open wounds add much to the world. One certainly isn't asking for Hallmark, but this is still lower down a different barrel.
