Yep, finally got around to seeing this one. I loved it. Because...
A: Interesting story line, that even though it rambles on for 2 hours, 38 minutes, still keeps my, at times very short, attention span.
B: Rooney Mara's performance is amazing and the black hair, piercings and baggy clothes never looked so cool on anyone (believe me, I've tried).
C: Yeah there are some tough scenes to watch, but overall, I think Lisbeth Sander can be seen as one badass feminist who doesn't take crap from nobody. And yes, girls can work with computers (although the film did feel a bit like an Apple product placement, tsk tsk, but what can you do?).
Bottom line: If you haven't seen The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I recommend you do. Plain and simple.
