Fincher's version of Dragon Tattoo has a lot of the usual visual grit and pallor that your typical Fincher film has, which definitely suits the grim nature of the story.
I mean, the villain of the film literally gets off on filming female bodies in distress, and the movie itself feels like it comes uncomfortably close to the same thing.
Craig did a good job of playing the character but his English accent killed the part, he could have at least tried and pulled off a Swedish accent, so I have to go with Michael Nyqvist as the better Mikael Blomkvist.
