Just got back from seeing The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I wanted to see it when it opened, but was a little busy with the holidays.
My girlfriend and I went to the movies tonight to catch Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Before last week, when we watched M:I 3, she had never seen any of the series. I own the Blue-Ray set. That said, we both really enjoyed it.
No spoilers here, but I thought it was shot well with a good story and the requisite over-the-top OMG-how the-hell-did-he-get-out-of-that stunts that are an M:I signature. If a friend asked me to go see it with them, I would certainly go see it again. I thought Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Town) more than held his own opposite Tom Cruise.
If you liked any of the previous movies in the series, I think this one is worth checking out. If you haven't but want to see this one anyway, I suggest watching M:I 3 first. You don't need to know everything about the series, but this installment certainly pulls a little from the previous.
