Well, first of all, I didn't expect too much but, still, with the rating that higher then the Swedish version, I was surprised of how mediocre American version was. I was disappointed by almost every aspect of the movie. Even with the photography. As English is not my first language, I'll be brief. Craig better than I expected, yet too polished. Nyqvist was so much more convincing Mara boring, with just two tones of voice through entire movie. I suppose, this monotony should convince us that she was cold and unattached, appearance OK. For me, Rapace was Lisbeth. Skarsgard exceptional Storyline didn't like the changes (compared to the book) and hated the rhythm as it kept too many details from the book; as a result, the movie looked like a photo album, hopping from one picture to another in fast pace. Directing anemic Music OK at the beginning, then irritating hurting my ears. To conclude, if I had seen it before the book and Swedish version, it would have been OK. As it wasn't the case, I shall remember it as unconvincing and redundant. Then again, it's just me
