The Girl Who Played with Fire (2009)

index

I got lucky thanks to Netflix, they had The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s sequel The Girl Who Played with Fire on instant.  Once again I was blown away by this one.  Firstly, it had a totally different storyline than the previous. Which made the entire story so much more in depth and just gnarly. It justifies me saying last time it was very novel-like.  I can’t think of another series of movies that I have seen in the last few months that can compare to this one. It is just so fantastic, I can commend it anymore.

Noomi Rapace was once again just fucking sick.  You learn so much more about her character’s personality and dark past, which Noomi just portrays so skillfully.  I can totally see why Ridley Scott tapped her for the lead in Prometheus (which I blown away by too). She is quite sexual in this one compared to the previous, I don’t want to spill to much and give away the plot line.

Everything else that I stated on the review for the previous movie held true for this one.  I already added the third installment into the Millenium Series onto my instant, so it’s next on my list.

Overall: 23/25

A continuation of a very engaging story that started with the first installment in this series.  After watching the second you are gonna crave to watch the third.

Rotten Tomateos: 69%

IMDB Score: 7.1/10

It was like a shock to the nuts…
