The Girl Who Played with Fire
The Girl Who Played with Fire is the second film based on a series of three books by Stieg Larsson. I really liked the film based on the first book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. This second story feels like a transition story. Lisbeth is accused of a murder she didn't commit and Mikael ends up on a mission to save the day. The end was satisfying to me, because the "what next" factor is pretty high. These films are violent and disturbing, yet heartfelt, and you care about these flawed characters. Well done.
