Vigilante hacker Lisbeth Salander returns to the big screen for a new tale of spies, lies, corruption and cybercriminals. Played with fierce intensity by Claire Foy (Netflix’s The Crown), Salander will reteam with down-on-his-luck journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Sverrir Gudnason) in this adaptation of the fourth novel in the bestselling “Millennium” book series. Directed by Fede Alvarez (Don’t Breath), the film also stars Lakeith Stanfield, Sylvia Hoeks, and Stephen Merchant.

- Follow up from David Fincher's 2011 film: 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'. This jumps to the fourth story in the book series.
- Lisbeth is one of the world's best hackers. She would not hack the US computers in such a way as to allow them to so easily identify her location.
- Camilla Salander: Are you not Lisbeth Salander, the righter of wrongs? The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? The girl who hurts men who hurt women? All those lucky ladies. Do you remember that morning? For sixteen years I've been watching you. Why did you help everyone but me, sister?
Atom User Reviews
No build-up of the characters to appreciate any revenge scene, especially the opening vengeance scene. Left unconnected.
Great camera work , acting, and storyline
For Alvarez, Lisbeth Salander is an icon first and last, which is to say she never feels like an actual person. Here, she’s just a Goth version of James Bond, and if this is Alvarez’s audition for the next Bond movie, then give him the job — he’s exactly the kind of director with style to burn and not too many ideas who you wouldn’t mind seeing donate two years of his career to an aging franchise.
Lacking the freshness of the original trilogy or the meticulous, insidious tone of Fincher’s film, Spider’s Web mostly feels like a holding action to ensure that more sequels can be made in the future. That timidity flies in the face of this series’ inherent edginess.
The filmmakers take a heroic, action-packed, high-tech approach that empties out some of the originality of this unique female heroine.
