Great Movie With Quirky But Lovable Characters Full Of Surprises Right To The End ~ Swedish with English Subtitles
on May 7, 2015
We all love it when the underdog becomes the hero! From a past of pain and trauma, instead of becoming the atypical victim, Lisbeth (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), although introverted and emotionally withdrawn, rises to become a strong, intelligent, informational hacker with a style all her own. After being hired to dig into the past of journalist, Mikael Blomkvist, she concludes his innocence in a recent liable conviction against corrupt financier, Hans Erik Winnerstrom, that not only seemingly destroyed his reputation as a journalist, but also damaged the reputation of Millennium, the journalism company for which he worked, and landed him a jail sentence. While awaiting his predetermined arrest date, Mikael is hired by wealthy, Henrik Vanger, head of the large Vanger Company to solve the mysterious disappearance of his niece many years earlier, in exchange for his financial backing of the troubled Millennium. Meanwhile, Lisbeth, continues accessing Mikael's personal emails and eventually offers him assistance in solving Harriet Vanger's disappearance. They eventually become lovers and together solve Harriet's disappearance, while also uncovering a sadistic murderer in the process. Eventually the time comes for Mikael to serve his jail sentence and, although he hopes for a continued relationship with Lizbeth, he remains unsure of her feelings for him. This movie will surprise you with its twists and turns right to the end. My only complaint is it's in Swedish with English subtitles.
