For fans of the book, this second part in the trilogy by Stieg Larsson is faithful to the material and highly entertaining.

In addition, Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist bring their characters to life perfectly. They are both pleasing to the eye, and yet have the depth and intensity to pull you into the movie experience.

However it did not earn the 10 I gave to the first. I think the only reason is that there so much great material in the book that it is probably difficult to decide how much to cut and what to high light in the movie.

I thought given this difficulty the makers did an awesome job and I enjoyed the film immensely.

For some who refer to this as a sequel, I think that is a misnomer. I think of a sequel as a second thought that is added on after an initial success. At any rate, all three films were shot before the first release, so it is more like one film divided into three parts.

This movie is better than any current American made film currently playing so save your money on the standard Hollywood drivel and place your bets on a fine movie-going experience that will also enlighten.
