people who didn't like the intro are trippin. it was badass
it's supposed to be a look inside her head/nightmares apparently

still a generic mystery but still.. good characters

I agree yellow. I loved the beginning!

I have mixed feelings about this. (I have read the books and saw the Swedish productions)

The plus:
the opening credits. Great.
Casting. Great.
Salander looks more her age.

The minus:
Editing is too fast. The story needs to breathe more
The ending sucks, I mean the post murder story. I didn't like the shorcuts they made.

This said, I'd love the same production to do the follow ups of the two other books.

Loved it. After reading the books in their detail, stacks of information and action sequences, I was confident that Fincher wouldn't drop the ball, and he delivered.

Like Abz said, the quick-fire cuts and progression doesn't reflect the pace of the original story, and some characters could have been explored over a bit more time, but to satisfy its depth would run the film a good hour longer. A smart bit of editing that suffers from time constraints.

Craig works well as Blomkvist, and adds a good slice of humanity that I never really got in the books, where he just seemed more of a machine that reacted to events around him.
Mara as Salander: perfect. I initially didn't like the more extreme goth wardrobe, but she wears it well. Just a great casting.

Would've liked a more satisfying punch to The Wennerström Affair. The ending could generally have been better, I suppose. But yeah.

And those scenes were brutal in all the right places. Yeah, those ones.

i really liked the Girl, cool character, great performance they should take her and put her in a cool story not a generic mystery/thriller where the only thing she has to overcome is rapists

the second and third book have her as the central character.
