On "The Girl Who Played With Fire"
From The Dispatch:
Salander is a much less interesting figure here than in "Dragon Tattoo," mostly because she and Blomkvist hardly share any screen time together, making their relationship much more abstract. It doesn't wallow in its salaciousness like its predecessor, but it's also much more straightforward. Part of "Dragon Tattoo's" draw came from its sanguine sensationalism while "Played with Fire" is more dour, and as such it's less fun.Click here to read my full review.
