I saw the third Stieg Larson movie last night, THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNETS NEST, and was once again blown away by the Swedish production as I was with the first two. I read the books, became a fan, and then saw the movies. Being an avid reader, many times when I see the movie afterwards I am let down in some way. Not the case with any of these three jewels. Though a different director for the first, and the same for the second and third, they follow the books to a tee. Making it all come together, Noomi Rapace rocks the world as Lisbeth Salander and has set the bar very high for Rooney Mara in David Fincher's 2011 American version. Although sub-titled once again, I was able to follow along. For me it's the same as watching Shakespeare...it takes ten to fifteen minutes to catch the flow and then all is right.
I have been acting for 26 years with experience in Film, Theatre, Television, Commercial, Industrial, and Voice-Overs.
