The Girl In the Spiders Web

Years ago i blindly saw THe Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the original, i thought it was great, so i began to read the books and eventually saw the other two in the series, the Girl That Played with Fire and the Girl That Kicked the Hornets Nest. When it was announced David Fincher was directing a remake of Tattoo, i was stoked. The film was great, but the translation into US made it feel more like a by the numbers espionage flick. The newest, which skips Fire and Nest and instead adapts the fourth book, is more of the same. It goes for more of a Mission Impossible vibe with action and the pacing is actually pretty fast but the action in question is a bit choppy and the story is a bit contrived.
