AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


There is alot to keep up with (especially if you must rely on the English subtitles) but if you are up to the task the storyline is well put together and rewarding.

Writing / Production:            

While I am not a big fan of long films, "The Girl Who Played with Fire" seemed to leave out some vital information and reveal other facts at the wrong time making certain aspects of the plot almost nonsensical.  Most everything is cleared up by the end of the film however and the journey was not without entertainment value.


All of the players were capable and talented.  Noomi Rapace just seems to be one with her role as Lisbeth Salander and she sure can kick butt. 


Although there isn't much of anything in "The Girl Who Played with Fire" that audiences haven't seen before, it is remarkably on par with some of the best Hollywood has to offer in this genre.


I liked this sequel better than its predecessor, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" because it is more consistent and doesn't keep the audience waiting as long for something significant to happen.  The film is quite interesting and entertaining although it may be hard to follow for some audiences.
