  • Dull

    By Jase4616
    This movie is supposed to be a thriller - it is nt! It is dull and uninteresting. The subplots have no bearing on the movie at all, leaving a film with an incoherent storyline, bad editing, and poor pacing. The book is amazing. The movie is anything but. Don’t waste your time or money.
  • How much rent!?!?!?!

    This is an awful film. Poor direction, shocking script. Save your money and buy the book. Jo Nesbo must be very sad.

    Very mundane, not worth buying (although i did) , Rent it , then if you enjoy it , buy it. The trailers for this portrays an exciting film with twists, sadly , this was not the case (i guessed instantly). Very poor film for Fassbender. 1/10

    Maybe the worst film I've seen in the last few years. Story line is good but the rest of the film is rubbish.
  • TV Series Quality, or...?

    By Emceewhiterabbit
    From the director of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Let the Right One in. What went wrong? TV quality murder mystery at best, although that would be an insult to the writers of Jonathon Creek, Murder She Wrote and Columbo.
  • rather bland

  • I really enjoyed this movie great thriller!

    By *StArScReAm*
    I must admit reading other reviews I was not looking forward to this movie. But soon as it started the film was deep great plot nice twist. I thought fassbender was superb as normal and to see val Kilmer in there to was brilliant also. Great movie worth a watch that’s for sure.
  • Unbelievable

    By Dannyinnit
    I can’t believe they got rid of all the classic songs we know and love in this live action version. I was hoping to be Walking in the Air but with Michael Fassbender.
  • Worthwhile viewing

    By Anastaciax1
    If you like the Dragon Tattoo films then you will like this one- Mot quite as good but it is still a worthwhile view
