I seen this movie last night(Blue-ray) and last time i seen a good movie like this was in 2009(Inglorious Bastards)

I would give this movie 9 out of 10 and some scenes were disturbing, but sometimes that is good for movies.

I love the theme and environment for this movie and if you like mystery movies then this movie is for you.

I heard it was based on true story, but don't know if it is true or not.

Anyway have you seen this movie? if not then i would suggest you give it a try! if you saw it then grade the movie!

Also i didn't truly get the story and if you briefly explain in a nutshell it would be greatly appreciative.

The writer of the trilogy once witnessed a gang raping of a girl, and it haunted him, and it also played a large part of his writings. I think that is what you might mean as far as hearing its based on a true story? I have seen the movie (the original movie trilogy based on books) but also the David Fincher version. Which one did you watch or have questions about? My "story in a nutshell" tends to be boring and long lol

Well it's not based on a true story, at least I don't think so, it's INSPIRED by a true story, the author of the books witnessed a gang raping once and didn't do anything about it, feeling bad, he wrote the novels to expose the treatment of women in his country, at least, that's what I hear.  
 
Anyway, I haven't seen the new American version, but I've seen the original Swedish trilogy, and loved them, Lisbeth Salander is just wonderful.

I haven't watched it. Rape scenes make me feel uncomfortable.

Well..to be fair, it's not like it's one giant rape movie...the scene is literally like 2 minutes long, and even then, not much is shown, you can even skip it if you feel necessarily.

Seriously? Every review I've heard made it sound like it was the most intense thing on Earth.

That's because American Audiences tend to get squimish around the "R" word, it's really not that long of a scene, nor as graphic, as a matter of fact, I've seen worse (Last House on the Left comes to mind) But it IS important because.

I saw the Swedish movie trilogy, haven't gotten around to seeing the American version...

It wasn't a bad movie. Sure I could live without seeing a few certain scenes but still it was nice.

I prefer the Swedish original, but the US one was well done, too.  3/5

@Billy Batson: With Mina writing, it might as well didn't. But Manco's art is going to be good, more than likely.

I've heard her OGNs are good unlike her ongoing stuff.

I've heard the same.  
 
I am negatively predisposed due to her Hellblazer run, I otherwise have no beef with her.

Then why complain since it's not an ongoing? :p

I recommend watching both versions (US and foreign). all are real good.

@Billy Batson: I'd have to sample her OGNs for myself before deciding, and her Hellblazer work does not exactly prompt me to. :P 
 
Besides, it's difficult to call it an original work since it more or less is going to be an adaptation of the novel.

@Morpheus_:

Everybody has a stinker.
True but I see the chance of it being the same caliber as her OGNs it being one solid work.

I thought the movie looked bad cuz the chick playing her was fugly and looked like a guy that's been doing coke for too many years.

If I wanted to see a movie about drugs I'd watch scarface.

Have yet to see the American version of the film but the original trilogy is great. I'm debating reading the books.

But foreign is better.... Not my 2 cents. Critics agree. Hehehe! But yeah both are good.
