We went to the World Premiere of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

So there we were sat at our desk minding our own business when we get an email for two tickets to the world première of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – thank you very much, yes please we’d love to go!
So off to Leicester Square we went and this is what we thought…

From the opening credits that deliver a brilliant music back drop to the dark undertone of Rooney Mara’s character The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a great film that will leave you wanting more. It can be said though Hollywood did get a little carried away with some interesting product placements that have now given me the urge to drink Coca-Cola, smoke Marlboro Reds, print on an Epson printer and write on an Apple Macbook!

So you where a bit like me, hear the hype wanted to see it but not sure of the plot? Well here it is:
After losing a ruinous libel case to a famous businessman, disgraced Swedish political journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Craig) is contacted by a rich industrialist, Henrik Vanger (Plummer), who needs help with his memoirs. However, Blomkvist soon finds that Vanger is more concerned with finding the murderer of his favourite great-niece, who disappeared from their family’s island in 1966…

In summary the film delivers on a number of levels, it has twists, turns, suspense and shock all rolled into a 2 hours 47 minutes roller-coaster of a journey!
