The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest Reviews

Christopher Lloyd
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

The Swedish trilogy trundles to a wobbly finale that's heavy on plot and cheap theatrics, but light on the dark, mesmerizing energy that made the first film so watchable.

October 27, 2010

It lacks a certain cinematic depth and scale, and plays out more like an epic episode of Law & Order. There are plenty of smart plot turns to follow, but at this length, the minutiae of the case begins to get a little tedious.

The ending at least offers some satisfying comeuppance, but it's a bit of a chore getting there.

Despite being packaged as a thriller, "Hornet's Nest" lacks the urgency and suspense of the previous films.

...could be read as the passion of Lisbeth Salander, as she undergoes a kind of secular crucifixion at the hands of the Swedish establishment ...

... not saying that this is bad film, it is just not nearly as intense and intriguing as you'd expect after watching the original.

This is the most disappointing end to a trilogy since Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3.

It's a rather wobbly blend of courtroom drama and loose ends tied, albeit rather leisurely.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

An overgenerous helping of recapitulation, a long procedural that's more about Lisbeth's persecutors and protectors than about her.

A bunch of evil old men get their comeuppance in 'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest,' but the girl who messes with their nest does hardly anything at all.

Its seems as if the production has taken a bullet to the brain just like its heroine.

March 2, 2011

It's predominantly a court procedural and a very redundant one, since all we're doing is re-capping what happened in the first two films and waiting two and a half hours for the verdict.

Hornet's Nest proves that even foreign trilogies are not immune to the curse of the disappointing third film.

The main thing that storyline reveals is that Steig Larsson's books simply aren't very well-plotted.

Alfredson is merely interested in repeating the highlights, recreating the best moments of the book but also the worst, resulting in a film that hits with precision as often as it seems to drag endlessly.

Alfredson's empty aesthetics mimic Hollywood conventions but merely exacerbate the hollowness of this entire affair.
