When Noomi Rapace was cast in the movie, she suggested Rachel McAdams for the role of Christine, because they have just worked together on Sherlock Holmes 2 and wanted to repeat the experience, this time with plenty of on-camera interaction. See more »
Exterior shot supposedly in London - see the double-decker bus - except the vehicles are driving on the wrong side of the road. The scene was actually shot in Berlin, Germany. See more »
Review: I didn't enjoy this movie that much because I found it quite slow and it did bore me in places. The two leading actresses put in good performances, but the whole tempo of the movie was slow and it doesn't seem to start to get going until the end. There are a couple of twists that makes you stick with the film but its still quite dull. The whole plot is based around sex, insecurities and portrayal and then it veers near the end, which was way to late for me. It seemed like t was made for TV, which was why it didn't make that much noise in Hollywood even though it has 2 big names as the leading characters. I was expecting much more from this thriller, but as usual, I was quite disappointed.
Round-Up: Since the original Dragon Tattoo franchise, Noomi Rapace's career has blossoms from movies like Prometheus to Sherlock Holmes, she can't seem to do much wrong and I don't that this movie will put a dent in her achievements. As for Rachel Adams, I don't really think that she suited being a bitch because I have seen her play the sweet girl next door so many times in movies like the Notebook, The Vow and she was also in Sherlock Holmes. With 2 big names as these, the director must have thought that this movie was halfway to making some noise in the movie world, but I think that the script could have done with some more work.
Budget: $30million (On What?) Worldwide Gross: N/A
I recommend this movie to people who are into there drama/thrillers about a controlling boss who thinks that she can get away with everything. 3/10
