Goofs

In the discussion at St Stefans after Zalachenko has been killed, Peter Teleborian is told that it is vital that Lisbeth is convicted of shooting Zalachenko. Yet she didn't shoot him at all - neither where they were both found and taken to hospital and certainly not at the hospital; she attacked him with an axe and took his gun, but did not shoot him. The statement should have been that it is vital that Lisbeth is re-committed. See more »

Loved It!
26 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I would never normally write reviews, however after being disgusted by the unbelievable 6.7/10 I had to comment.

For the fact that there is rarely a trilogy of such merit, and yes we can all name the few that come to mind, that in itself deserves credit.

The finale was definitely the highlight, with all loose ends tied and also so satisfactorily lacking the Hollywood ending that we've all known to come and hate, I couldn't have enjoyed it more.

The only things that upsets me now is I might not be strong enough to avoid curiosity and peek at the Hollywood attempt. Though rest assured my curiosity will be spent within the opening sequences I am sure.

The great thing about this trilogy is that I have watched it on my own and now have the excuse to watch again with friends! Enjoy.
