Product Description

Amazon.ca

Based on Stieg Larsson's literary phenomenon and featuring a breakthrough performance by Noomi Rapace, the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy follows the unlikely heroine Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist. First, as they unite to solve the case of a missing girl and then as they fight to uncover the truth about Salander's past, a past full of secrets that a mysterious underground government group would kill to keep hidden-- featuring two hours of feature content never released in North America, the extended versions of the films are now offered together in English and French for the first time. In the extended edition of the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy, get ready to get up close and personal with leading actors Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist; go behind-the-scenes of one of the most action-packed sequences in the trilogy and discover the man behind it all, author Stieg Larsson (1954-2004). --Kelsey Ganes

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Fans of Stieg Larsson's Men Who Hate Women may have been concerned about how the Swedish author's novel would translate to the screen, but they needn't have worried. Significant changes to the source material have been made, but director Niels Arden Opley's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, as it's now called, is mostly riveting. As the story begins, middle-aged investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) has just been convicted of a bogus charge of libel against a rich and corrupt corporate hotshot when he's unexpectedly offered a most unusual gig. An aging captain of industry named Henrik Vanger (Sven-Bertil Taube) wants Blomkvist to figure out what happened to Vanger's niece, who disappeared more than 40 years earlier; not only is the old man convinced that she was murdered, but he suspects that another member of his large and rather disagreeable family (which includes several former Nazis) is the culprit. Blomkvist takes the job, which includes spending at least six months on Vanger's isolated island in the middle of winter. But what he doesn't know is that he's being spied on by twenty-something Lisbeth Salander (brilliantly played by Noomi Rapace in a career-making performance), the titular Girl and the possessor of remarkable skills as a sleuth and computer hacker. With her goth-like piercings and all-black clothes, Lisbeth is a vivid character, to say the least. While we don't exactly know the details of her dark past, it's obviously still with her; indeed, she's just been assigned a new "guardian" (like a parole officer) to look after her finances and other matters. We also know that she is not someone to mess with; when the guardian turns out to be a thoroughly vile monster, Lisbeth gets back at him in one of the more satisfying revenge sequences in recent memory. That Lisbeth and Mikael should end up working together, and more, isn't especially surprising. But the horrifying details and depths of depravity they uncover while working on the case (parallels to The Silence of the Lambs are facile but appropriate) definitely are, and Opley does a nice job of keeping it all straight. At more than two and a half hours, the film is long, with its share of grim, graphic, and scary moments, but The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a winner.

The Girl Who Played with Fire
The toughest chick in Sweden returns to action in The Girl Who Played with Fire, the second film adaptation of the late author Stieg Larsson's “Millennium Trilogy” novels. That would be Lisbeth Salander, once again played with quiet, feral intensity by Noomi Rapace. As Larsson's readers and anyone who saw the first film (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, also released in 2010) knows, Lisbeth is small in stature but big trouble for any man who crosses her--after all, this is the woman who set her father on fire after he abused her mother and later, after being released from a mental institution, took extreme revenge on her legal guardian after he brutally assaulted her (those scenes are briefly revisited for the enlightenment of those who missed the earlier film). Also back is investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), Lisbeth's erstwhile lover and partner in solving the Dragon Tattoo mystery. When two of his young colleagues are killed while at work on a story about sex trafficking, followed shortly by the murder of the aforementioned guardian, Salander is the prime suspect. But Mikael is sure of her innocence; in fact, he's convinced she's the next victim, leading to a tangled tale in which Lisbeth learns more about her family and its very dark secrets than she ever wanted to know. The story is compelling, if a bit slow to take shape, and director Daniel Alfredson, taking over for Niels Arden Oplev, skillfully sustains the mystery and tension (there are also doses of nudity and violence, the latter much more graphic than the former). But Lisbeth isn't on screen nearly as much this time, and her relationship with Blomkvist, so central to the Dragon Tattoo, is almost an afterthought. Still, The Girl Who Played with Fire will certainly whet fans' appetites for the next installment, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest; and considering the overall class and quality of these Swedish productions, one shudders to think how they'll turn out in the inevitable American versions, the first of which is due in 2011, with Daniel Craig as Blomkvist.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
It takes a while, but the saga of one of the more fascinating characters put on the page or the screen in recent years comes to a satisfying conclusion with The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, the last installment of the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson's so-called "Millennium Trilogy." That character is Lisbeth Salander, the computer-hacking, Goth-loving, dark angel of revenge, played by Noomi Rapace with the same black stare and taciturn charisma that were so riveting in the first two films (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire, both also released in 2010).

When we last saw her, Lisbeth was trying to kill her father, a Russian defector and abusive monster; in the process, the girl was seriously wounded by her half-brother, a hulking freak with a strange condition that renders him impervious to physical pain. As the new film opens, all three are still alive, and she's being taken to a hospital to recover while waiting to stand trial for attempted murder. Meanwhile, her champion and erstwhile lover, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), sets about uncovering the full extent of the conspiracy responsible for (among other crimes) Lisbeth's being sent to an asylum at age 12 while her father was protected by evil forces within the government.This investigation, which puts not only Lisbeth but also Blomkvist and his colleagues in considerable danger, leads to "the Section," a thoroughly repellent bunch of aging liars, killers, thieves, and perverts with a great many secrets they'd like to keep (the oily Dr. Peter Teleborian, who was responsible for Lisbeth's "treatment" as a child, emerges as the most vile antagonist since the guardian who brutally assaulted her in the first film).

Although much of the exhaustive detail about these and other matters has been eliminated by director Daniel Alfredson (who also helmed The Girl Who Played with Fire) and screenwriters Jonas Frykberg and Ulf Ryberg for the purpose of adapting the novel to the screen, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is still quite long (148 minutes), and less kinetic and violent than the earlier films; there are some exciting sequences, but Lisbeth, previously an unlikely but magnetic action heroine, is seen mostly on a hospital bed or in a courtroom, and much of the film is spent on procedural matters. Still, the fact that the loose ends are wrapped up in fairly conventional fashion doesn't make the conclusion any less satisfying. In fact, the only real letdown comes from knowing that we won't get to see Noomi Rapace play Lisbeth Salander again. --Sam Graham

Format:Blu-ray
An excellent set of films, contains the entire Swedish mini-series (6 x 1.5hr episodes) and at a reasonably high quality. But the big drawback here is the lack of extras on the Canadian edition. The set as purchased is NOT as advertised. The only extras it contains are the same ones that Alliance originally released with the separate movie discs. The one hour making-of documentary which is said to be here is simply missing in action. It apparently only comes with the American blu-rays. If you want the full complement of extras, BOYCOTT THIS CANADIAN EDITION, as, once again, Alliance, holder of Canadian rights, distributes an INFERIOR product, while allowing Amazon mistakenly to advertise it as identical to the US version. Save your hard-earned bucks and vote against Alliance's cheap practises by getting the US edition. Don't get ripped off like I was.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the films, but the packaging isn't great. Jan. 13 2012
By AT
Format:DVD
These films are fantastic. I was a big fan of the theatrical releases and the "miniseries" versions are even better. I love that the whole story is broken up into six 90-minute parts, which facilitates viewing. The one criticism I have is the packaging: the discs slide in and out of the paper sleeves, and several of the discs I received were scratched (but viewable) upon first opening, despite my taking great care in avoiding the under surface dragging across the paper as I removed them. So, if you're picky like me about pristine condition discs, maybe think twice about this set.

2.0 out of 5 stars French ONLY - no English subtitles Jan. 5 2011
Format:DVD
Beware, if you are looking for the English version of the Millenium Trilogy (based on Stieg Larson's Girl With The Dragon Tattoo books) this is not it. THERE ARE NO ENGLISH SUBTITLES ON THESE DVD's. This version is in Swedish and French. The subtitle options on the DVD are On and Off. Subtitles "On" plays the movie with French subtitles and Swedish dialog, and "Off" plays the movie with a French overdub. The movie is very good but the Amazon product description should include this information.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed May 20 2013
By JMcB
Format:Blu-ray
Very disappointed to learn that the Canadian version of this collection does not, in fact, contain the "extras" as described. Frankly, I could live without the extras, as I rarely watch them on most features, but the fact that the description here on Amazon.ca differs in content and packaging makes me very wary. What else might actually be different or missing when it arrives? In my opinion, the Canadian distributor and Amazon.ca need to sort this out. Either change the description to accurately reflect the product, or pull it off the site altogether. Thanks for the heads-up. I'll take a pass on this one!

This is an outstanding thriller / drama. The set now includes options for Swedish, English or French dialogue and the English dubbing is excellent. One of the best movie series I have watched in a long time. Don't hesitate to buy this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars The girl in a bleak world Oct. 26 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
The late Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy was all about cruelty towards women -- and the movie adaptations don't hold back either. These are bleak, dark thrillers filled with razor-sharp social commentary, bloody action and conspiracies -- and brilliant performances by Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace.

In "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," take-no-prisoners journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) has just lost his reputation, his savings and his freedom (hello, jail sentence!) after a nasty libel suit from an executive named Wennerström.

Then he's unexpectedly contacted by aged industrialist Henrik Vanger, to discover what happened to the guy's grandniece. He's offering evidence on Wennerström, so Mikael has no choice but to accept -- and as he investigates the sinister Vanger family, he joins forces with Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace), an eccentric, abused computer hacker. And as Mikael unearths the clues to Harriet's disappearance, he also finds some skeletons long kept buried.

"The Girl Who Played With Fire" finds Mikael investigating sex trafficking in his own country, and young girls who are sold into it. Unknown to him, Lisbeth is keeping very close tabs on his work -- especially since she was abused as a child, and now plots revenge on the sex traffickers. But when she's accused of murder and ends up on the run, Mikael must discover what lies at the core of these crimes...

And finally, "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets' Nest": Lisbeth has been shot in the head, her malevolent father Zalachenko is in the same hospital claiming that she tried to kill him, and some nasty government forces want her locked away, as she was as a child.

1.0 out of 5 stars Scratched and unusable Sept. 6 2012
By Laura
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVD's arrived fairly quickly. Unfortunately, every one of the six DVD's were scratched. Watching the movies were impossible as we couldn't get past a certain point. There was a big glob of glue on one of the disc's!! I can't believe Amazon would sell a product that is so badly damaged. I read other reviews, and saw the same thing, but ordered the set anyways. Never again. I will buy my movies elsewhere from now on.
