|07.29.12||Blu-ray|| After reading the book and watching the Swedish film, this one was really more about seeing what Fincher did with it than anything else. I'm pretty much over the story, especially this first one. I guess America is too because I remember this not going over terribly well.|
It was ok. Everything looked like I thought it would. Kind of a by-the-numbers expected-levels-of-quality exercise that unfortunately was not fresh at all for me. It was good enough to watch through, seeing how they stayed closer to the book than the Swedish film in some ways and steered away from it in others, but there's probably not enough here to make me a fan of it. At this point I'm way more interested in diving into the special features since Fincher is like the last person in Hollywood to insist on anything more than 5-minute featurettes culled from EPK footage.
