An underworld operative, played by Colin Farrell, finds himself in a tough spot in this melodrama. A command from his boss results in a couple of unfortunate deaths, prompting him to seek the person truly responsible.
The film also reunites director Niels Arden Oplev with Noomi Rapace, who played "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" for him in that tale's original screen version ... and who is cast here as a woman who blackmails the Farrell character to get his assistance. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on DVD and On Demand)
