There aren't any surprises here as far as the narrative is concerned, but Alvarez, aided by a solid performance by Foy, again elevates what could otherwise be flat genre material into something that keeps the audience glued to the screen.
La chica en la telaraña tiene más de esa vertiginosidad tan propia de las películas de Jason Bourne que la frialdad y desolación del universo de persecuciones y traiciones que Larson había concebido en sus novelas.
THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB is about as delicious as a bagel without any cream cheese. Sure, the goods are there, but there's a complete lack of flavor that needs to be at the forefront of a film with this much intrigue.
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.
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.
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.
