The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest sends the Larsson story out with a definite bang.
October 29, 2019
The most unfortunate part of the The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is its heroine has nothing to do but sit in a hospital, prison cell and courtroom until the last five minutes of the movie.

Making up for the series' somewhat tepid second installment, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is a gripping and deeply satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.

... wraps up the tale with more efficiency than excitement.
March 11, 2016
A two and a half hour film, the poor script, infrequent action scenes and unforgivably anti-climactic conclusion make it feel like its taking place in real time.

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest doesn't exactly give the Millennium trilogy the explosive send-off it deserves, and stacked against the other two movies in the series, it's perhaps the weakest story of the three.

It's a story with something to say and a powerful way of saying it

At 142 minutes, it's long with some confusion, but the luminous presence of its star Noomi Rapace makes it well worth the journey
