The Girl in the Spider's Web es un atrapante y efectivo thriller de acción, aunque bastante menos sutil, más vacío y superficial que su predecesor.

One really shouldn't be able to make a premise that starts with 'Black Metal Ellen Page versus Ivanka as imagined by Frank Miller for The Button The Blows Up The World' [this] dull.

Foy fully inhabits the role of a kick-ass female antihero in a film that checks a lot of boxes but still feels lacking.

The Millennium series continues with what's undoubtedly its weakest entry...

It is odd how out of date Lisbeth Salander already feels. THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER's WEB seems so much older and stodgier than Fincher's 2011 effort or the Swedish adaptation of the entire original trilogy.
December 6, 2018
A fat, big-budget dud with a pulse that even a versatile Foy can't keep from flatlining.

It's a shame to think that this might mark the end of Lisbeth Salander's cinematic adventures, but if this is indicative of what we're going to get, maybe it's for the best.

A fine, if serviceable, film with Claire Foy making the most of her almost-Terminator like indestructibility. What brings the film down is the blunting of the edges. The series has such potential, in the end though it's a tame dragon this time around.

At every step, the film demands the suspension of disbelief. [Full review in Spanish]

I think it suffers to some extent from some creaky dialogue...but the thing that holds it together is that Claire Foy surprisingly convincing.

That's it. That's all that has changed. Foy in the lead role. Otherwise everything else is the same, only worse.

She's great in this one, too, bringing to the role of this ferocious, feral, pansexual goth-vigilante much the same talent for telegraphing vulnerability and fury in reserve that she brought to her portrayal of Elizabeth II in The Crown.

A perfectly decent job [Foy] does.

A brilliant Claire Foy is at the top of her game here, even if the rest of the film isn't.
November 26, 2018
The pace does drag at times, but The Girl In The Spider's Web is not as unpleasant as some of its predecessors and Foy convinces whatever the role.

November 26, 2018
The decision to abandon the psychological thriller to turn the film into a sort of female version of James Bond, squanders the essence of a saga and today is nothing more than a mediocre exponent genre cinema. [Full Review in Spanish]

The Girl in the Spider's Web makes for an engaging watch as a stand-alone crime thriller.

Foy's work in the film is applauded. [Full review in Spanish]

Folk in Hollywood, and elsewhere, need to accept that there are some things old Europe really does do better.

November 25, 2018
It's a by-the-numbers procedural, sure, but the sharply designed sets and snow-blasted locales give the film a great look. Most of all, though, Foy does a really good job as our despondent action protagonist, Swedish accent and all.
