A Brit a Day [#578]
Okay, Mr. Daniel-Craig-as-Mikael-Bloomquist, you've got some big shoes to fill--please don't let me down, especially after I told everyone that 'Cowboys & Aliens' had to be good just on the strength of your appearing in it.
Here's what collider.com has to say about it:
The script, which captures the novel’s bleak tone (its original Swedish title was Men Who Hate Women), was written by Academy Award winner Steven Zaillian, who wrote Schindler’s List, and it departs rather dramatically from the book. Blomkvist is less promiscuous, Salander is more aggressive, and, most notably, the ending—the resolution of the drama—has been completely changed. This may be sacrilege to some, but Zaillian has improved on Larsson—the script’s ending is more interesting.
