Sometimes you should not rush perfection.
I have seen all three of the movies, though this is the first one that I am offering a review on. I read the book of the same title just before I saw the film, bad move I think as it was very fresh in my mind so my expectations were, unfortunately high. As in the title I think that it was rushed to screen to take advantage of the hype around the Larson novels. I think there was also the push to get to screen as Hollywood was a bit slow to react, but react they are in the process of release the first movie.
Right now to the bottom line! I think that the book was brilliant a work that was in a glimpse in the world of Swedish business and politics, a very surreal experience. Now for the movie I am afraid I cannot say the same.
It was missing the subtly that is the Millennium story for me, the underlying character sub-plots lost to what I would assume the cutting room floor. A movie filled with the action sequences in the book, but in my opinion forgot what Millennium is all about, and the relationships between the characters were just not fit for film.
