The Girl Who Played With Fire (Movie review)

Movie Synopsis:
The Girl Who Played with Fire(Flickan Som Lekte Med Elden)2009NR129 minutes

Tech expert Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) becomes the prime suspect when two journalists, including Dag Svensson (Hans Christian Thulin), die afterMillennium magazine publisher Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) launches an exposé of the Swedish sex trade. In Part 2 of the trilogy based on the action novels of Stieg Larsson, the vampiric Salander vanishes as Blomkvist digs deep into a possible conspiracy.

REVIEW: 5 of 5 stars

An amazing film, just as good as the 1st part, will watch 3rd part tomorrow. The character development in this satisfies those who complained of it lacking before, I can't wait now to watch part 3. The acting is so realistic, the dialogue & actions so credible, I felt like a voyeur. Lisbeth is much more likable and understandable after this one. I hope they end up together in the 3rd one, because it's clear they care about each other quite a bit. This one didn't leave many, if any, loose ends, though one should see part 1 before this, to understand where these characters are at & what is driving them forward. A bit more gore & blood, violence & cruelty in this 2nd part. There came a time that I thought Lisbeth was dead, but knowing a 3rd part was coming I also knew it wasn't possible, or hoped it wasn't anyway. Despite subtitles, they never slowed down my comprehension of this movie, & time flew by with 2+ hours seeming like 30 minutes. I highly recommend this!
