The Girl in the Spider’s Web 123 Full Movie Plot & Release Dates.
It was probably inevitable that Hollywood would neuter the best elements of Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium” franchise, but did the producers really need to shift it into a commonplace cross between a superhero flick and James Bond? David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” tried hard to balance the Swedish films’ sensitivity to protagonist Lisbeth Salander’s severe psychological trauma with broad box office appeal, but “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” — based on the novel by Larsson’s successor David Lagercrantz — is more vested in fiery external explosions than internal pain, reducing Salander to a quirky Batgirl-like figure, soft-pedaling her feminism, practically eliminating her queerness, and tossing in an American so the U.S. can save the world. Director Fede Alvarez (“Don’t Breathe”) delivers some big-bang thrills in a slick production that will do hefty business, but for Salander fans, this entry feels like a betrayal.
Audiences not familiar with the characters will be more forgiving, especially if Sony markets this as a fast-paced thriller needing little to no background information. But it’s hard to imagine jumping in without any knowledge of Salander’s disturbing past as a victim of multiple sexual assaults beginning when she was a child. One of the major achievements of the three Swedish films was their ability to project an atmosphere of near constant violence against women, without using it as an excuse for fetishizing the brutality. That sensation is absent here, replaced by a tiresomely unoriginal nemesis in the guise of Lisbeth’s sister Camilla (only briefly mentioned in the Larsson volumes and completely absent from the previous films) whose cartoonish profile plays like a one-dimensional Bond villainess. In addition, in the earlier versions Salander’s need to help women abused by men had a vigilante crusade element yet it never became a kind of score card, which is how it’s rendered here.
Succeeding Noomi Rapace and Rooney Mara in the iconic role is Claire Foy, fresh from “The Crown” and “First Man,” proving herself to be chameleon-like in appearance but unable to bring much depth to a character whose personality and temperament are dependent on previous incarnations rather than this film’s by-the-book screenplay. Casting Icelandic-Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason (“Borg McEnroe”) as Mikael Blomkvist was meant to give a more authentic Scandi flavor, but the script renders him less than colorless, generating zero chemistry with his co-star and speaking in an even less accented English than Foy, who assumes a slight Swedish accent because, as with the Fincher film, all signs in Sweden are in Swedish but all dialogue and written material are incongruously in English.
