Kinda? That sounds firm.

Yeah because if there's one consensus about finchers dragon tat it's that it's dumbed down and accessible. I mean they the two protagonists aren't introduced till the second act, after a graphic rape scene, just like every other American movie.

If you haven't seen the Swedish version, it's a fine movie. But like others said, it adds nothing on the original.

Once more into the fray... there's no original since TGWTDT 2011 isn't a remake, it's an adaptation. And watching it after Swedish adaptation feels like watching a proper film after a TV mediocrity. One thing you do get from s.e. is of course the original language, but how many of us have experienced reading the book in Swedish language, zero? God I love hearing the word 'dumbed down' associated with Fincher.

Then, like others have said, it was just made for lazy Americans that can't bother to read subtitles.
A waste of Fincher's talent.

Shit. It was far better than the Swedish film. Closer to the book as well.

Calling it a film for lazy Americans is bullshit.
