Roger Ebert The Girl Who Played With Fire is very good, but a step down from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, if only because that film and its casting were so fresh and unexpected.
Jason Anderson Inertia sets in even before the first hour is through and Alfredson’s plodding treatment exacerbates the weaknesses in the novel’s grisly but ludicrous finale.
Tomatometer Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist remain extraordinarily well-suited to their roles, but the second installment in Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy doesn't pack quite as much punch as the first.
