Video: How Does the Disc Look?

As was the case with The Social Network's Blu-ray debut, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo doesn't just look amazing here, it's nothing short of perfect. Fincher and his team are utilizing the palette of digital filmmaking with exceptional results, and a 1080p presentation like this one continues to prove it. Whether it's color accuracy, detail quality, black level consistency or lack of digital hiccups, this Blu-ray Disc absolutely hits it out of the park. The film itself may not offer much in terms of warmth or even-keeled color dynamism, but as a capture of the snowy, cold realm of the movie's story and tone, this is a reference-quality presentation.

Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?

Some writers have balked at the bold, often provocative sound design in Fincher's latest couple movies - a few haters might claim that bass and Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross' score are too present here for their own good - but don't listen to them. This DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix is often brittle and disorienting, but brilliantly so. Dialogue is crystal clear throughout, dynamic range is impossibly panoramic, and surrounds are sensationally exploited around every corner. Perfect.

English Dolby Digital 2.0 and French DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mixes are included, as are English, English SDH, French, Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew, and Hindi subtitles.
