The Girl in the Spider web's user reviews


Read review Manuel Piñón
The Hollywood Reporter

Many thrills, few reasons to care (...) It is certainly not the most satisfying version of Lisbeth. But it is edgy and action-packed, and Alvarez? direction keeps the tension high.

The Wrap

'The Girl in the Spider?s Web' is such an absorbing airplane novel of a movie that you half expect to walk out of the theater and into O?Hare International. Your flight was on time, and the turbulence was totally badass.

Screen Daily

Although it?s directed with slick skill (...) [it] ends up feeling like so many modern movie properties, which get revamped and rebooted due to corporate commercial interests that minimise what made the material special.

Lisbeth Salander has been reduced to a Batgirl-like figure with a tacked-on psychological profile (...) It delivers some big-bang thrills in a slick production that will do hefty business.

Read review Jay Weissberg

Claire Foy is the best Lisbeth Salander yet in a sequel too muddled to leave its own mark (...) The story sinks under its own overwrought weight.

It?s watchable enough (...) Forcing Salander into Bond?s shoes feels like a misstep, her intellect and survivalism suited to far more interesting pursuits.
