Ds wants to see it.  He can handle the graphic nature - not sure I can!

 

Have you seen it, did you like it, was it overly dark and disturbing?

I've seen it. Just my opinion, I wouldn't bring a child to it. The violence is graphic but mainly I wouldn't because of a pretty horrific rape scene. Also, violence against women is a huge part of the plot line. 

 

All of this said, I liked the movie, but I come from it from the perspective of a Swedish person who has the read all the books and is familiar with Stieg Larsson's work and philosophy (he was actually a feminist). 

 

But if I didn't have that context, I would not have seen the movie. I probably would have found it overly dark and disturbing. 

 

My 0.02$ :)

He's 15?

 

I haven't seen the movie, but I've read the books. It was a very good book and I'd like to see the movie. I think it looks well done, but it's a very violent story.

16 next month.

 

I will need to think about it - the violence against women, etc, kind of disturbs me, but maybe it will make a good conversation piece.
