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.

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

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.

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

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 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.

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]

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.

A fast-paced, high-octane espionage action flick with superhero flourishes.

November 23, 2018
The action skips nimbly from set-piece to set-piece, Foy is terrific even with the dodgy accent and the dialogue is not as leaden as it might be.

Treat this as a female Bourne/Ethan Hunt and you will have a great time.

Fede Alvarez is a fine action director, and his exciting set-pieces provide decent compensation for Lisbeth's now omnipotent skills.

The Girl in the Spider's Web may not be that break of paradigm that some expected within the saga, but manages to deliver two hours of entertaining suspense. [Full Review in Spanish]

Glossy, glamorous, dark and dangerous, it draws on the films of 007, Jason Bourne and Alfred Hitchcock. There's two great vehicle chases, a couple of shoot outs, and a smartly staged game of cat and mouse.

Fans of Larsson's original will miss Lisbeth's spiky complexity and social conscience... Those happy enough to find a female-led action movie will just hang on for the ride.
November 17, 2018
Apart from a couple of minor continuity fibs, the filmmakers do a solid job of emulating a Hollywood thriller, down to the scrambled hand held camera work - which sometimes fails to provide clear information.
November 17, 2018
The story's dark psychological heart plays second fiddle to the action - to the film's detriment.
