Mini Review - The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (out Jan 12) is a great film in its own right. The story is interesting and the performances are strong. Rooney Mara is terrific! You can also see the stylish fingerprints of director David Fincher. All of that said, the film will feel a little too familiar to those who saw the Swedish original 2 years ago. Not sure if this remake was necessary. Grade: A-.
