Girl with the Dragon Tattoo American Vs Foreign
I don't know how to start this review. I watched both of these movies WTF? WOW. I've got nothing. There's things I liked about both, I think I prefer the American version, a lot of that is because of the cast, I liked Daniel Craig more than Micheal Nyquist and I preferred the people they got to play the Vagner's (yes all of them) compared to the Vagner's in the swedish version. Although I think the woman who played Lisbeth in the swedish version was the better actress. The disturbing rape scenes are more disturbing and I think better shot in the American version. Soundtrack, better in the American version. This may be the first time I ever say this, but the American version I think is the better version. There is A LOT of good in the swedish version and it's a fine film in it's own right, but the american version added a level of polish. I'm keeping this short I don't want anyone who hasn't seen the films to be upset that I spoiled something about the Plot. I went in to these blind, all I knew was that it's a depressing story and that it featured a girl who had a dragon tattoo BOTH OF THOSE THINGS WERE TRUE! Check it out, it's an interesting movie to say the least.
Sorry not sure what else to say about these. Both worth a view, American is I think the better film, at least I enjoyed it more.
