  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: The Girl In The Spider’s Web isn’t great, but I think it’s a fairly serviceable action thriller, elevated by a great filmmaker and top notch casting.
  • [New] | Vadim Grigoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A rote crime action thriller — very car chase! such gunshots! — that drains its protagonist of much of the raw power that has made her so fascinating in the past.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: A faded facsimile of earlier versions of this franchise, The Girl in the Spider’s Web is a toothless thriller that waters down anything interesting about the lead character and squanders a fantastic cast. It watches like a DTV studio lucked its way into the rights of a hugely popular IP and churned out some half-assed crap on a short turnaround in order to capitalize.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: What a very tangled web we weave.

    • Excerpt: Fede Àlvarez actually made an interesting crime-thriller movie out of ‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’ but, unfortunately, Claire Foy is a huge miscast as Lisbeth Salander.
