Claire Foy is fierce hacker Lisbeth Salander in this month's must-see thriller The Girl in the Spider's Web. It's the latest entry in the riveting The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo saga, continuing the story originally laid down by late Swedish author Stieg Larsson.
Last night, lucky Unlimited members got to see the movie in advance of its release date, so what's the response? We'll start with this from Daniel who says, as a newcomer to the series, the movie more than delivered on the action front.
Having not seen the first films, I had no expectations. I really enjoyed this, the Swedish landscape seems to make everything a bit grittier. There were car chases, action, thrills and everything in between. Well worth a watch.— Daniel Green (@greenydan) November 19, 2018
Claire Allan agrees, saying there are twists and turns aplenty to keep potential viewers guessing.
Despite having never read the books or seen the previous movies I thought was thilling and exciting and had me on the edge of my seat in parts #GirlintheSpidersWeb— Claire Allan (@missclaireallan) November 19, 2018
Unsurprisingly, the increasingly versatile Claire Foy achieves the lion's share of the praise. Here's Cheltenham Cinematic with a five-star review.
#TheGirlInTheSpidersWeb, A thrilling new story using characters from the original Dragon Tattoo books. Not a glossy remake, it kept the grittiness of the Swedish movies. Claire Foy makes a Great Lisbeth Salander! *****— Cheltenham Cinematic (@CheltCinematic) November 19, 2018
Leanne agrees, even if she thinks the story is lacking somewhat.
#GirlInTheSpidersWeb #CineworldUnlimited not the greatest follow up film - trying to hard to add new things to the franchise. Nevertheless, it's exciting, fast past and Claire Foy holds her own as Lisbeth Salander - tough shoes to fill in my opinion 7.5/10— Leanne (@Leanneiscoolyeh) November 19, 2018
In contrast, several viewers found the movie something of a step down from the previous films starring Noomi Rapace and Rooney Mara. James McLean is one of those.
Enjoyed it immensely but cant beat the original trilogy of movies with Noomi Rapace.— James McLean (@jamesmcl1963) November 20, 2018
And Andrew Hazell says the story's emphasis on action comes at the expense of atmosphere.
It was a poor successor to TGWTDT, basically took a spy thriller plot and turned her into Bond. Claire Foy was good, but sorry she is not Lisbeth.— Andrew Hazell (@ahdvd) November 19, 2018
