The Girl Who Played With Fire

“The Girl Who Played With Fire” is a follow-up to “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” film. Essentially, Lizbeth Salander, a hacker, and a magazine publisher, Mikael Blomkvist, expose serial killers, criminals, corrupt government officials, and racists.

It should be said, in Sweden, the EU, and the UK, there is limited free speech to no free speech protections, which serves as the backdrop of this movie. Basically, one can be sued for defamation and libel if a person slanders another person; moreover, there is no actual malice standard in which people can benefit, so such a situation resembles sedition at the highest level. Ultimately, this lack of free speech protections only chills free speech, and this situation can only benefit murderers, racists, criminals, and corruption at the highest levels of government from being exposed. After all, corrupt people can claim defamation and libel, which can lead to lawsuits against a person regardless if the claims are true or false.

Check it out. It’s a good movie.
