The Girl in the Spider's Web tries to give us the female version of James Bond; instead, it gives us a gender-swapped version of the worst 007 movie in recent memory.

As soon as the title sequence of Fede Alvarez' The Girl in the Spider's Web unfurls over two thunderingly dull minutes at the start of the film, it's becomes crystal-clear just how much of a bad idea this endeavor was for everybody.
February 12, 2019
Goes high tech, has little drama and is dark in mood.

February 5, 2019
A solid but ultimately mediocre thriller, not as hard-hitting or thought-provoking as earlier entries in Stieg Larsson's Millennium series.

February 5, 2019
When Álvarez can put an action scene together, he excels; the movie is full of chases and gunplay and strange torture, like the other films, but Álvarez brings something heavy and muscular to it.

February 4, 2019
With its ridiculous plot and overreliance on action, The Girl in the Spider's Web marks a disappointing turn in the Lisbeth Salander film series.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 2, 2019
A soulless, boring, and abhorrent franchise reboot.

February 1, 2019
It seems all the men so eager to make a profit off this series totally missed the memo about who the real monsters are - or buried it.
January 27, 2019
There are a few things that The Girl in the Spider's Web definitely isn't: entertaining, thrilling, or anything other than bland and generic, narrative-wise.
January 18, 2019
Just a total mess - and not even a fun one.
January 10, 2019
The blame rests with Lagercrantz and with the producers who clearly thought that we wouldn't notice that a script boasting cheap thrills can't help but result in an even cheaper-feeling film.
January 10, 2019
The Girl in the Spider's Web lacks heart and compassion, choosing action over development of the flawed characters fans have come to love.
January 4, 2019
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.
December 31, 2018
Claire Foy puts in an admirable performance with a plot that feels like a superhero movie played awkwardly straight.

[Relies] on a labyrinthine structure when it should just let its bruised heart shine through. The Girl in the Spider's Web demonstrates how uncertainty is a detriment, just as it proves Alvarez will always be a stylist worth watching.

December 24, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/ 10
December 22, 2018
This edgy tale of female empowerment may be just what we need right now in this age of the 'Me, Too' movement.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 20, 2018
In its third generation, the saga has become noticeably threadbare, even trite.
December 10, 2018
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]
December 9, 2018
One really shouldn't be able to make a premise that starts with 'Black Metal Ellen Page versus Ivanka as imagined by Frank Miller for The Button The Blows Up The World' [this] dull.
