Lisbeth goes all

RUNNING TIME: CLASSIFICATION: RATING:
THE ADVENTURES of Lisbeth Salander, the intrepid punk-goth hacker made famous in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series, continue in
The Girl in the Spider’s Web.
The film-makers take a heroic, action-packed, hi-tech approach that empties out some of the originality of this unique female heroine.
Instead they point the movie at a rather different kind of audience from the first trio of Swedish movies and David Fincher’s 2011 remake The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
It is based on the book by David Lagercrantz that continues the series after Larsson’s death.
There is a new back story for Lisbeth that soft-pedals the original one of multiple rapes and abuse. Other disconcerting changes should test the loyalty of the series’ fans,
Lisbeth Salander (Claire Foy) in Columbia Pictures’ THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER’S WEB.
