Well done, and a great performance by Noomi. Also, there’s a very nice interview with her in the extras section. Listening to Noomi’s dedication to the Salender character, reminded me of Christian Bale’s commitment to his character in The Machinist. She totally lost her self for a year and a half while making the trilogy. Out of character, I find her to be a very attractive woman.
This was only the second movie I’ve seen where I read the book beforehand, so it rattles the brain a bit. The screenwriters did a fantastic job of streamlining the movie, which was understandable and expected, but I was surprised how much they left out, although it didn’t affect the movie at all, but you do miss the subplots, which can be very interesting. What really surprised me was Salander’s character. I thought she was much more aloof and withdrawn in the book, yet the way the movie presented her, she seemed more approachable and willingly involved.
The way the writers increased the tempo of TGWTDT in comparison to the book, I can’t wait to see TGWPWF, that’ll be like this movie on speed. I expect to be on the edge of my seat from start to finish.
