Useless
25 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

first, it's a really really good movie

second, it's absolutely useless with the only purpose to satisfy David Fincher's ego and greed for money and the all American need to own everything.

a remake just after two years of a fan/critics praised original? and nothing is changed but the actors?

the swedes speak English now, with some weird accent? authenticity???

also the title character is seriously underdeveloped just like the emotional connection with the male lead protagonist.

I said its a really really good movie but hence the above stated rating:3
