The next, and last installment of the Millennium series has the same director, but with a completely different writer again which, in my opinion, is not a good thing to know. Seeing as this movie has mixed reviews, it really didn't give me high hopes for it, but The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is just as good and flawed as The Girl Who Played with Fire. The acting is solid, but I felt like there are moments here and there that seems like they are getting tired of this and just want the movie to be over. The writing is decent, but it gets better at the last 40 minutes of the film. The plot is not much different form the second movie except for the third act ending is a court movie which is the most interesting part of the film and is as interesting as the first movie. The chemistry between Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist is just barely there as the previous movie, but this time, I'm all right with it because I knew what to expect of it given with the same director. The movie is mostly interesting except for the villains who are uninspiring and just dull and forgettable. It has some good thrills here and there, there's some clever moments from Lisbeth and Michel, and there's a good chase at the end. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is probably a bit of a disappointing conclusion as it could've been better, but I knew it was going to be disappointing going in, I just hoped that it was going to be entertaining however, which it was, and when David Fincher hopefully comes back to direct the sequels, I hope that they are going to be better than the second and this movie.
