About 44 minutes could have been cut from this movie. I really didn’t mind the beginning of the film, but as the movie rolled along it felt really unnecessary. I know this was based off of a book, but I don’t think that everything from the book should have made its way in. The really interesting part of this movie starts about 45 minutes in, where the child-murderer investigation takes off. This part reminds me of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Very interesting murder story, that you want to see solved. The final scene was pretty bloody and intense, but ends with kind of a cheesy, family friendly finish. The movie has its share of problems, but if you ignore some of those problems, the middle meat portion of the film will keep your hunger satiated.
