Satisfying central segment
This is the Swedish-language film adaptation of the second of the three “Millennium” crime novels by the Swedish journalist Stieg Larsson and it’s really essential that one sees “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” first because vital themes are continued. Most middle segments of trilogies lack the bright originality of the first and the satisfying denouement of the last, but this one will certainly hold your attention until the girl kicks the hornet’s nest.
In this central segment, Lisbeth Salander (the mesmerising Noomi Rapace) is much more central to the narrative and indeed she and investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) are only physically together for moments, although often in electronic communication and always in emotional connection.
The criminality being investigated by the “Millennium” team is more woman-hating in the form of sex trafficking and again the plot contains some surprises but this time the villains are reminiscent of Bond baddies like Blofeld and Jaws. The violence is not quite as stomach-churning as in the first episode, yet there’s still plenty of bone-crunching, blood-splattering action. Lisbeth here is the most death-defying female avenger since The Bride in “Kill Bill Part 2”.
Same writer, same saga, different director. And you notice that.
The second chapter of Larsson’s trilogy is almost a single continuous story split into two parts (tome II and III), while the first episode is more stand-alone (and IMHO the best one, both on paper and celluloid).
Unfortunately, most of the thrilling elements of the first episode disappear: there’s less drama, less time to develop characters (and some are missing), the narration is sometimes incomplete (mainly if you read the book).
A few examples: the initial episode with Lisbeth in holiday is completely skipped (only a very short cut-scene survives), Lisbeth financial help to improve her old tutor Palmgreen’s health is missing (and you see Palmgreen two times: the first one with a very pronounced handicap, the second almost healthy, just a few days after…), how did Lisbeth find Bjurman’s vacation home?, what about the moto-club?, why is Lisbeth remotely deactivating the apartment alarm and not Bloomqvist with the WASP-on-phone-keyboard trick?, etc. etc. etc.
When compared to the previous cinema transposition (and generally spoken to the original book), tons of details and information creating and enriching the Larsson’s world have been removed, resulting into a flesh off sub-version movie adaptation of what originally was an interesting novel, now reduced into a mediocre detective film.
