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.

This edgy tale of female empowerment may be just what we need right now in this age of the 'Me, Too' movement.

The Girl in the Spider's Web it's a captivating and effective action thriller, altought pretty less subtle, and more empty and shallow that its predecessor. [Full review in Spanish]

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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