CGiii Comment

So...Fincher takes a perfectly good Swedish film and does absolutely nothing with it.

No improvements - even with the huge budget.

If anything, the pace is  more sluggish, the characterisations more plastic, the soundtrack is painful...and, the lesbian storyline has almost evaporated...

For what purpose was the re-make made?

Solely for the benefit of those who can't be bothered to read a subtitle.

A cataclysmic waste of money.
