The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Monday afternoon, Tom, Becky, Kevin and I went to see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo at the Century 14. Sharon finished reading the book on Sunday and I read all three of the books finishing The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in June of 2010.

I am pleasantly surprised by the movie. It is a solid adaption of the book. The casting of Lisbeth and Daniel Craig's performance as Mikael Blomkvist both were consistent with the pictures that I had in my head from the books.

It does remind why I love books: it is impossible to duplicate the richness and depth of a good book in a two plus hour feature film.

Tom and Becky had seen the original 2009 Swedish film version of the story and were very complimentary. We are going to have to go back and watch that version in the near future.
