The Girl Who Played with Fire

So when a young journalist approaches him with a meticulously researched thesis about sex trafficking in Sweden and those in high office who abuse underage girls, Blomkvist immediately throws himself into the investigation.

The Girl Who Played with Fire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 18Mbps), The Girl Who Played with Fire offers a reasonably proficient visual experience despite the presence of several less-than-ideal nuances. Beginning with a discussion of clarity, the film contains a reasonable level of depth and precision during the well-lit sequences, but there's an unfortunate drop off in the consistency of fine object detail during nighttime shots. Part of the problem lies in subpar shade differentiation that plagues such sequences, leaving shadow details underdeveloped and lacking in definition (a perfect example is the lesbian sex scene around the 20 minute mark). The other part of the equation is a dependence on orange and yellow lighting in most of the darker shots, which rarely expose every detail caught by the indirect light. Unfortunately, these intricacies in the visual presentation temper my enthusiasm for what's otherwise a fairly strong transfer, which is a shame when you consider they're merely stylistic choices on the part of the filmmakers. Though I never saw the film theatrically, I believe what we're witnessing on the Blu-ray presentation is a faithful portrayal of the cinematographer's intentions.

Moving away from the weaknesses of the low-light sequences, there's not much to complain about. Color accuracy appears natural and unaltered in daylight scenes, there's no edge enhancement to speak of, and we find enough subtle film grain to eliminate any suspicion of DNR application. All in all, this is transfer that does a lot of things right, but fails to break into the upper echelon of high definition potential.


The Girl Who Played with Fire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Those who've read my prior review of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo may recall my suggestion that viewers move beyond the presence of two lossy tracks and give the Blu-ray a chance. Apparently that was then, and this is now. I'm not sure what changed in my viewing of The Girl Who Played with Fire, but I continued to find elements in the Swedish audio presentation that required the added benefit of a lossless offering. For example, listen to the car chase sequence around the midpoint of the film, when Lisbeth's boxing instructor pursues a large van down a crowded city street. Combining the rumble of a shifting engine with the whoosh of cars flying by, the sequence has the makings of an adrenaline-infused kick to the jaw, effectively breaking up the more cerebral moments in the film. Instead, the effects sound decent enough to remind us of what we're missing, but fail to place viewers directly in the heart of the action. This essentially translates into a presentation that shouldn't necessarily be labeled a disappointment, but barely deserves a passing grade (which is mostly earned through reasonable vocal clarity and adequate volume balance in the dialog).

Though I sampled the English dubbed option, I found the voice acting a bit weak for my liking. I can confirm the technical quality is on par with the Swedish language track, but would recommend viewers stick with native language if at all possible.
