Then Hollywood finally got rid of everything that was a bit interesting with Lisbeth Salander.


action thriller

«Girl on the Spider's Web»

USA. 15 years. Director: Fede Alvarez.

S: Claire Foy, Sverrir Gudnason, Lakeith Stanfield, Sylvia Hoeks.


Has the time ever come when a thriller about a dark and prey-colored heroine was more organized, who revengeed younger men and mainly talked about general misogynyms than the fall of 2018? In this case, the fall would be in 2017.

But you think Hollywood they hoped to give us such a movie? No, then. The "Spider-in-the-Web Spider" denotes the moment when the movie site forcibly decreases in its wisdom Stieg LarssonLisbeth Salander (Foy) for another action hero who is trying to create a series that can appear and walk the same way for an eternal dinner.

Yeah. Salander is now half Bond and Half Catwoman or Batwoman (she gets Batmobile halfway through the movie!); an ingenious heroine who is "still in trouble" – with the Russians, with the Swedish security service Sapo and with their demons – and they need to fight more and more physically.

"Girl on the online spider" is based on "What does not kill us" David Lagercrantz"Official follow-up" of the Larsson trilogy Millenium (Larsson died in 2004). The film scripts were distilled out of the books, the thriller of the movie James Bond, which was used to offer when Roger Moore played a character:

Some – this is the programmer Frans Balder, played by a comedian Stephen Merchant – he developed a computer program that can break all security protection codes all over the world at the same time (i.e. "knussel"). If she is not on the go anymore? Guess three times. Many would have represented him, including Russian congressional eyes like Salander's father (Mikael Persbrandt) was involved? Three times.

Yes, it's ultraseric, attempts to connect this plot with Salman's traumatic past, with related psychology, are pointless. Datahackingen yes? Well, damn it, like a hack! Below is signed as paranoid as anyone. However, there must be limits to how easy it is for Salander and friend Plauge (Cameron Britton) to become the lords of the controlling community.

Great Claire Foy throws it in the role, without getting involved more than driving on a motorcycle and constantly watching. (We must mention that he has the opportunity to "nurture" deep hair in the lower back with a super glue and a stapler). The film gets even less food from her off-and-relationship relationship with journalist Michael Blomkvist. It is now – a pale – game Sverrir Gudnason.

Lakeith Stanfield, as National Security Agency agent, Edwin Needham, also gets his fingers and feminine characters – his own Synnøve Macody Lund as head of Säpa and Sylvia Hoeks in a role that we can not say so much – they are cool clips of ice nut.

Visually, "The Girl In The Spider's Web" is anonymous. Stockholm it is rainy and lean, aesthetics is solved Scandicrime anno 2010. The most outstanding feature of the film is actually the menus of accents "Swengish" that it offers. Salander sounds like Icelandic. Or was it Rus?

It's not that important and does not change the sad fact that "The Girl In The Spider's Web" is a movie that seems outdated at the moment it's released.
