Best Foreign Movie(s) in the past Decade
Although sexual abuse of women can be a tough subject, the 3 books and now movies in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series are so well-written and brought to the movie screen that it is easy to see why they have been a world-wide phenomena. I read the books first (which I would recommend), and was not disappointed with the movie version. In fact, I was interested in how the female lead would be played in the movie. I was not disappointed since Noomi Rapace does an outstanding job as L. S. For any of you who have not seen these movies, you have a wonderful treat in store.

I can't find anything bad to write about this film. Intense, well defined, characters appealing, excellent script and a fabulously grim story. I enjoyed every riveting minute of the three discs. The 4th disc with actor interviews was quite interesting also. I did like the fact that this film could be viewed both with subtitles or voice over in English. Pleasantly surprised.

The Movies as Good as the Books
The Swedes made this movie trilogy in one year and paid tribute to the late Stieg Larsson's literary trilogy with excellent casting, exceptional performances, and screenplays that are faithful to the books.
As entertaining as the English GWDT movie may have seemed, the storyline of the book was butchered in the screenplay. The difficulty in deciding whether and/or how to do a sequel based upon GWPWF and/or GWKHN may be in part due to the fact that the continuity between the books that Stieg Larsson created must now be contrived in any subsequent screenplay(s) as the foundation of the complete story has been changed.
Watch the Swedish trilogy and you won't care about whether the Anglos ever produce a sequel(s). Hollywood forgot the reason for making movies, and how to make movies, a long time ago. Art has been replaced by multiple production companies trying to minimize losses, not make money (why share profits, anyway???), because there is no money to be made any more as movie-goers wise up and refuse to plunk down their cash for trash.
Ingmar Bergman and Stieg Larsson must be sipping aquavit and smiling, wherever they are. Skoal!!!Read full review

Buy it now and don't look back
Considering that this is the original version of Steig Larson's trilogy translated or dubbed into English from Swedish, you are in for great ride. This version is a real gem and I hope you buy it and love it like I do. Dvd's are broken into two parts for each episode and the final Disk is all the commentaries and other extra stuff. The last disk is not as good as the films.

THIS IS THE ONE FOR THE READERS!
If you read the BOOKS FIRST, then this is the Edition you want. If you didn't read the books and don't intend to then the "theater release" versions of the trilogy will do-- I guess...
My understanding is that the "Extended Edition" is ACTUALLY the original presentation on Swedish Television. So you get the "unedited" versions, which are much more DETAILED. In fact, you get nigh on to two and a half hours more original content then the theater releases.
GWTDT is about 30 minutes longer; TGWPWF is nearly an hour longer as is TGWKHN. This is the SET for your permanent collection. CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ OR SEEN ANY OF THESE, THERE ARE SOME VERY GRAPHIC DEPRAVED SCENES THAT SHOULD NOT BE SEEN BY CHILDREN AND THE SENSITIVE. TO GIVE YOU A CLUE, THE ORIGINAL TITLE FOR THESE WAS, AND I MAY BE PARAPHRASING A BIT, "MEN WHO HATE WOMEN". SO I ADVISE STRICT CAUTION! That being said, I understand that Stieg Larssen (the author- for you non-readers ) had plans for a total of ten books in the series-- I sigh for the seven we will never read and whatever original plots that were changed after his death. But I would guess that many more butts would have been kicked, and many more heads would have rolled. Lisbeth Salander... WHAT A BABE! P.S. Never have seen the "AMERICAN" version of TGWTDT. If it rolls into the blu ray or across the cable I will take the time, but I have not missed it at all, so consequently it has no part in this review.Read full review
