I liked it. For once I'm okay with such a sweet, sugarcoated ending. I did not expect they'd tie all loose ends by the end of the movie and I feel like it was a conscious decision. It would've been such an easy decision to make a bittersweet ending if either of the characters had made the 'life-changing' decisions upon reaching not only one, but two major crossroads in the film. But I'm glad they trudged forward.
I haven't seen the movie but I did watch a very interesting video essay on youtube by nerdwriter (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gksxu-yeWcU&t=0s
) where he rearranges the movie to make Chris Pratt's character far more mysterious and sinister.
I watched the original Swedish version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo yesterday. After reading the book and seeing the David Fincher version, I have to say this adaptation is my least favourite. There were a lot of details that were overlooked or were simply missing and I think the overall tone of the book was portrayed better in Fincher's version.
However, I did think Noomi Rapace was a better Salander than Rooney Mara.
I'll still watch the other two just to see how they translate to the screen.
