The Girl in the Spider's Web review: Lisbeth Salander deserves better
While the movie was sleek and compelling, this one But then again, neither are any of the male blockbuster spies. It was a deeply serious, impeccably made movie that aimed for art rather than crowd-pleasing simplicity. Not many people went to see it. The film begins with a flashback to the childhood of Salander, the morose punk hacker. She and her sister live in a remote house with their sadistic dad, who has depraved, abusive plans for them.
Video: Sony Pictures. The film keeps flagging autism as a superpower, but not everyone on the spectrum is a chess grandmaster. It really does. Even the art installations depicted in the film are black and white. What has changed is the plot.

house with a clock in its walls movie
This time around, Claire Foy plays the iconic Swedish heroine, but Lisbeth Salander's new chapter isn't the stark, intelligent world we're used to. Since , three actresses have played Lisbeth Salander, Sweden's iconic hacker heroine sporting a dragon tattoo and a mohawk. The new movie and Netflix show are nowhere near the same world, yet Foy proves she's up for the motorcycle-riding, scarred-deep-down hero who can hack just about anything. Unfortunately, her stark, intelligent world is now a silly Bond-esque action movie. It's based on the fourth novel in Stieg Larsson's Millennium series, written by David Lagercrantz after Larsson's death. Unlike the careful plotting of the previous movies, director Fede Alvarez goes for big explosions, fast car chases and plots involving -- sigh -- nuclear warhead codes.
