Millenium Trilogy Extended Versions The Salander saga gets reformatted for the small screen. 4 Stars By Richard Jordan | Sep 15th 2011 Read more: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo review | Adapting a worldwide bestseller is a tricky prospect be too slavish and you risk alienating new audiences; cut too much out and you ll anger the faithful. The solution? Two versions! So the producers of the Stieg Larsson-inspired Millennium Trilogy follow up their leaner, cinematic cuts with an extended mini-series. Here we have the three movies re-edited into six episodes, as shown on Swedish telly complete with a natty new title sequence and handy Previously On... catch-ups. First up is Niels Arden Oplev s gently tweaked The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which sees discredited journo Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) and genius hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) teaming up to investigate a missing girl. This superior opening two-parter is as tight and compelling as its big-screen counterpart, but it s Daniel Alfredson s sequels that really benefit from the new format. Dense revenge pic The Girl Who Played With Fire and complex conspiracy thriller The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest get a whopping 55 and 39 minutes of extra footage, respectively. There s no drastic new set-pieces, but the longer run times allow the exposition-heavy plot to unfurl at a more leisurely pace and gives several supporting characters notably Blomkvist squeeze and Millennium editor Erika Berger (Lena Endre) room to breathe. One thing that hasn t changed, though, is Rapace s fascinating and committed turn as the damaged Salander an iconic performance that holds the whole series together. If revisiting the originals ahead of David Fincher s remake proves one thing, it s that young pretender Rooney Mara has some mighty big emo boots to fill.

Paul Pritchard, DVD Verdict --Now this is certainly different. When one hears that a film clocking in at 152 minutes is getting an additional 30 minutes added to its runtime, it can be off-putting, no matter how good the original may have been. When that same extension is applied to an entire trilogy, it can become a somewhat daunting task. The simple fact is that most people just don't have three hours to sit and watch a movie all that often. So with that in mind, it is both refreshing and reassuring to find The Dragon Tattoo Trilogy reconfigured as a TV miniseries, with each film broken into two 90-minute episodes.

First of all, this change of format not only doesn't harm the material, it actually enhances it. Given the extra room to breathe, the films are both richer and a much more palatable proposition. Whether by chance or design, each of the films also has a natural break-off point, where each episode can draw to a close; this allows the viewer to take in each story in easily digestible chunks whilst ensuring they are left desperate to find out what happens next. It's also important to stress that the story still maintains its cinematic feel.

Presented as one long six-part series, the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy: Extended Edition is broken down into three distinct sections, thus allowing the viewer to watch each film independently of the rest.

Each film in the trilogy is presented in a 1.78:1 anamorphic transfer, which obviously means the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has been cropped to fit with the aspect ratio of its sequels. This really makes little difference, however, and still delivers a fine-looking picture, with natural colors, high levels of detail, and solid blacks.

400 of 422 people found the following review helpful By Sandoz on December 11, 2010
Format: DVD
If you are a real fan of these films then you are probably aware that they were made originally for Swedish television and the versions released to theaters have been shortened to make their running times more palatable for audiences who are forced to keep their butts in their seats viewing these films during their theatrical release. The films as shown on TV have a run-time closer to 3 hours, whereas the theatrical prints clock-in around the 2 1/2 hour mark. It would have been nice if they had saw fit to release the unexpurgated versions in this complete box set, rather than the slimmer versions.

This collection is still a good deal...if you want to get all the films of the trilogy in one fell swoop and, though i haven't compared them to the single film editons to see if anything is new, it does appear that the 4th bonus disc has some good extras. Myself, I'd rather wait until the longer versions get their inevitable release (this story has become too phenomenal for it not to) either on this side of the pond, or in a R2 version.

<UPDATE: Well, it took a year from my above disclaimer but the full-length versions of the films have finally been released here in the U.S. Was really just a matter of time that they'd eventually show up, but I know I'm glad I waited for them so I didn't have to double-dip on releases of these films. 01/12>

Format: DVD
THE STEIG LARSON TRILOGY is NOT the complete, uncut version of the Swedish TV presentation. I E-mailed B. Brown at MUSIC BOX FILMS, and he said that the uncut versions will be released later this year. As for the movies themselves, they are three of the best suspense / mystery / thrillers I've ever seen. Noomi Rapace (as Lisbeth Salander) dominates every scene she's in, from the opening, disappearance mystery of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO through the human-trafficking tale of THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE, and right through to the government conspiracy finale of THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET'S NEST, Repace is incredible! Her psychological complexity and toughness are fascinating! I can only hope that the US remake stays true to these stories...

Music Box Films responded to my email query by confirming that this Extended Edition includes both English-dubbed and subtitled versions, so it is indeed the definitive set that every fan has been waiting for.

117 of 126 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 24, 2010
Format: Blu-ray
The late Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy was all about cruelty towards women -- and the movie adaptations don't hold back either. These are bleak, dark thrillers filled with razor-sharp social commentary, bloody action and conspiracies -- and brilliant performances by Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace.

In "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," take-no-prisoners journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) has just lost his reputation, his savings and his freedom (hello, jail sentence!) after a nasty libel suit from an executive named Wennerström.

Then he's unexpectedly contacted by aged industrialist Henrik Vanger, to discover what happened to the guy's grandniece. He's offering evidence on Wennerström, so Mikael has no choice but to accept -- and as he investigates the sinister Vanger family, he joins forces with Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace), an eccentric, abused computer hacker. And as Mikael unearths the clues to Harriet's disappearance, he also finds some skeletons long kept buried.

"The Girl Who Played With Fire" finds Mikael investigating sex trafficking in his own country, and young girls who are sold into it. Unknown to him, Lisbeth is keeping very close tabs on his work -- especially since she was abused as a child, and now plots revenge on the sex traffickers. But when she's accused of murder and ends up on the run, Mikael must discover what lies at the core of these crimes...

And finally, "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets' Nest": Lisbeth has been shot in the head, her malevolent father Zalachenko is in the same hospital claiming that she tried to kill him, and some nasty government forces want her locked away, as she was as a child.

Is it worth it if you don't want English subs?
Each of the 3 movies has more than a half hour of additional scenes (from the versions shown on Swedish TV) which were not in the original cinema trilogy set.

dvd vs blu-ray?
It really doesn't look like it. Even the bonus disk only has the same 1 special as the DVD, unless more are suddenly added in the next month.
I saw the originals on DVD, and they looked & sounded great. I personally don't think the BD could make any real A/V improvements. I pre-ordered the... Read More

I actually experienced an issue with the first disc where the final 10 minutes or so of Part 2 would just freeze incessantly. I tried 3 different players and got almost identical results.
