Eh. I liked the book but this adaptation was kind of just okay.
I did like some of it though. I thought that the filmmakers did a good job streamlining some of the dull setup of the novel. I also was a bit confused by a lot of the novel (mainly because I read it over way too many months while Double Trouble were infants and I was sleep deprived). But the way the film was shot made all of the connections between the characters very clear. So I did like the visuals quite a bit at times.
But big key moments in the novel were kind of lackluster in this adaptation. And while I did like a lot of the casting - I'm not sure how I feel about the Salander casting yet. She just doesn't do that much for me.
I think that the first novel was my least favorite so I'm wondering if I should give the other two films a chance. Or should I just wait for the David Fincher film later this year? That will definitely be better than this. Who has seen the whole trilogy?
