The Matrix: Revolutions of the Millennium Trilogy.
November 20, 2010
While Rapace remains a strong and captivating actress in the title role, the film is remarkably bad. In fact, it's easily one of the year's worst movies. Boring beyond belief.

The Millennium Trilogy follows a similar pattern as The Matrix Trilogy, and that's not a compliment.
November 19, 2010
The European equivalent of The Matrix Revolutions, this third chapter finds a once-vibrant saga largely coasting on the fumes of its well-regarded predecessors.
November 19, 2010
When your series' most compelling character remains mute and largely on the periphery of the action (albeit all decked out in punker regalia, including a big Mohawk), something is seriously amiss.
November 5, 2010
... a dull summation of the more compelling back story from the first two films.
November 4, 2010
At least it manages to avoid repeating the most tepid mistakes of its immediate predecessor.
November 1, 2010
Dull, disappointing, vengeance-filled conclusion to Stieg Larsson's intriguing Swedish crime trilogy.
October 31, 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.
October 29, 2010
Despite being packaged as a thriller, "Hornet's Nest" lacks the urgency and suspense of the previous films.
October 29, 2010
As the end credits of this last dour Swedish snooze-a-thon started rolling, I clapped my notebook shut as if it were the last day of school. Huzzah! Bring on David Fincher. Please.

Much of the problem can be traced to the villains of the piece: The snakes in the establishment are a bunch of really old white guys. Now this may be true to life, but it's hell on drama.
October 29, 2010
Fans will presumably get what they came for; what anyone else gets out of it is hard to say.
October 29, 2010
The main thing that storyline reveals is that Steig Larsson's books simply aren't very well-plotted.
October 29, 2010
An overgenerous helping of recapitulation, a long procedural that's more about Lisbeth's persecutors and protectors than about her.
October 29, 2010
Expunging the clichs, coincidences, flat dialogue and dull exposition will present a challenge for director David Fincher as he begins to remake the films in Hollywood.
October 29, 2010
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.
October 28, 2010
There's simply no urgency to the proceedings.
October 28, 2010
Hornet's Nest proves that even foreign trilogies are not immune to the curse of the disappointing third film.
October 28, 2010
... not saying that this is bad film, it is just not nearly as intense and intriguing as you'd expect after watching the original.
