    I personally think the original one was way better. 11 years 1 month ago

    As with many American adaptations of foreign films, most if not all of the subtlety of the original was lost. Moments that should speak for themselves now have dialogue added, robbing scenes of any gravity they may have had.

    Likewise, character development was reduced, and in the case of peripheral characters, completely removed. The victims lacking lives of any kind takes so much away from this version of the story, takes the life out of the world the story takes place in.

    A very sad remake of an amazing Swedish film, which in turn is an adaptation of an absolutely wonderful novel.

    Here is a more in-depth critique for anyone curious.

    This brought nothing new to the table. As usual, the American remake is aimed at people who don't like subtitles or subtlety. Even the CGI was fake-looking and distracting. Sure, the kids did a good job, and it could've been a lot worse, but that's not exactly a ringing endorsement. 11 years 8 months ago
