The Girl Who Played with Fire - rated TEPID

What a disappointment!  This sequel is not a patch on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.  Different director - same actors, but what a world of difference in films.  The original installment was a visual feast and really exciting, too. This film looks murky, and is full of stuff, but had no verve.  Yes it still has the wonderful Noomi Rapace as Lizbeth, but somehow the spark is lost.  Read the book instead.
