Young computer hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist find themselves caught in a web of spies, cybercriminals and corrupt government officials.
Crime Drama Thriller - This sequel to THE GIRL IN THE DRAGON TATTOO
features none of the original cast and is more
of a brisk action film than the slow-moving
thriller that was the first. Fans of new lead
Claire Foy will definitely enjoy this change
of pace role. Violence and language makes the
film not for kids.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average Most of all, The Girl in the Spider's Web feels like the inferior and unnecessary return of characters whose time has passed. As compelling an individual as Lisbeth is (especially in the "metoo” era), she deserves better than what she's given by this story.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average ...the worst thing about "The Girl in the Spider's Web”—the element likely to enrage most fans of the franchise—is how it betrays its central character by eradicating almost every aspect that made her so initially fascinating.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average ...makes for an entertaining dose of international intrigue. But it's also filled with over-the-top action sequences that even 007 would find bloody ridiculous and a convoluted narrative involving masked gangsters, American intelligence and a backstory that does its enigmatic heroine a disservice by demystifying her.
NY PostFull Review Below Average ...a slow trudge devoid of suspense and adrenaline. ...you can't blame an actor for the ho-hum story, which somehow manages to be confusing and obvious all at once. At times, figuring out who is good and bad is a struggle, and yet you can see every plot twist coming...
