The best thing that can be said about the excruciatingly dull, badly made closing chapter in this punishingly bad Swedish crime trilogy is that it really whets the appetite for the upcoming American version.

Seeing the first two films -- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire -- will make the third film more satisfying.

Much of it still plays like bad Thomas Harris...
November 29, 2010
It's a brisk conspiracy thriller about the moral deformations wrought by Sweden's neutrality during the second world war and the cold war, and the role of leftwing journalists to bring out the truth from a labyrinth of national intrigue.

A more apt title would be 'The Girl Who Sat Quietly in a Dimly Lit Room'.

As well as being conventional, The Girl Who Kicked is also confusing, dull and grubby (do we really need to see examples from a child-porn site?).

Is the Millennium Trilogy over? Can we go home?
November 29, 2010
The Girl Who Makes Us Wish We Were Anywhere Else.

It's only our investment in these fascinating characters and in wholly unraveling the mystery of Lisbeth Salander's awful past that keep it compelling.

Hornet's Nest has a steady, bulletlike trajectory.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is too akin to the tidying up of a television-series finale - albeit a very classy franchise with fine characters and able performances.
October 29, 2010
If you haven't seen the first two films, do so and then see this one. If you have seen them, chances are you're already in the ticket line. Hornet's Nest has such a sweet sting.

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
One of the knottiest, talkiest tangles of celluloid to roll into theaters this year.
October 29, 2010
Feels like the concluding chapter it is, with neatly tied loose ends and closing remarks, though it unfolds as something of a secular passion play.
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
The final, deeply satisfying conclusion to the trilogy of Swedish thrillers based on Stieg Larsson's bestselling novels.
October 28, 2010
An extremely satisfying ending to the story of Lisbeth Salander, the tough Swedish cyber punk that actress Noomi Rapace has turned into an iconic New Age heroine.

It always is a challenge to convert a dense novel to the screen, but Hornet's Nest starts so slowly that it has a lot to overcome when it finally reveals some surprises in the last third of the film.
