Hot actress/goth chicks - Noomi Rapace





Noomi Rapace's portrayal of Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium / Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy is quite wonderful.  Salander is a fantastic literary creation, and Rapace has brought her to cinematic life as if the character sprung directly from the pages of the book, which is as it should be.

If you have any interest in seeing this trilogy of films, I would encourage you to watch the original Swedish films before the Hollywood remakes come out.  Director Niels Oplev has tried to keep the complexity and intelligence of the novels and has not succumbed to the temptation to make them into explosion filled action movies.

  1. We've watched the 1st two and love them. Really very well made films. I dread the American adaptation as I do every time they stick their nose in a BBC production and try to Americanize it.

    Noomi Rapace is brilliant as Lisbeth, and she stayed true to the character even with posters for the films (unlike the American version's "teasers" that catered to hetero-male audiences).
