The Girl in the Spider's Web
Fired from the National Security Agency, Frans Balder recruits hacker Lisbeth Salander to steal FireWall, a computer program that can access codes for nuclear weapons worldwide. The download soon draws attention from an NSA agent who traces the activity to Stockholm. Further problems arise when Russian thugs take Lisbeth's laptop and kidnap a math whiz who can make FireWall work. Now, Lisbeth and an unlikely ally must race against time to save the boy and recover the codes to avert disaster.
Claire Foy is Lisbeth Salander
Hacker. Protector. Vigilante.
Claire Foy (“The Crown”) stars in a new Dragon Tattoo story as Lisbeth Salander, the highly-skilled vigilante from the acclaimed Millennium book series. Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist find themselves caught in a web of spies, cybercriminals and corrupt government officials, as they race to rescue a dangerous program capable of global destruction held by shadowy figures linked to Lisbeth’s past.

Couple of comments: this is a reboot of the "Dragon Tattoo" movie franchise, which until now included the 3 original Swedish films from 2009 (adopting the 3 original "Millennium" books) and the 2011 US remake of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" directed by David Fincher. While for me the 2011 remake was entirely unnecessary (die to the excellent Swedish original movie), at least Fincher kept the original tone: a dark psychological thriller, helped enormously by Rooney Mara's performance (although nobody is ever going to surpass Noomi Rapace). Now 7 years later, we get this film. I must admit I was skeptical from the start, I mean, the US franchise simply skips books 2 and 3 and instead now brings to the big screen a book that was not even written by the original author of the "Dragon Tattoo" series (Stieg Larsson, who passed away in 2004). To complicate matters further, the original 2011 US cast is dumped altogether, even though Rooney Mara made it very clear that she was very much game for retaking the Lisbeth Salander role. Instead we now get Claire Foy, whom we just saw in "First Man". While Foy does an admirable job, at no time can she replace Mara (let alone Rapace). But more disappointing is that what once was a dark and brooding book and movie franchise, this is now an action movie, nothing more, nothing less. Think James Bond for the 21st century. In fact, the opening credits montage is VERY MUCH like a James Bond movie, as is the overall approach to character development (slim to none). And all the plot points all get a clear resolution by the end. Of course. No expense was spared for this film, and it all eyes nicely, but the bottom line is that this film lacks and suffers as compared to the previous "Dragon Tattoo" films.
"The Girl In the Spider's Web" opened a few weekends ago, and has decidedly underwhelmed at the box office. I finally got around to seeing it this week. The Tuesday early evening screening where I saw this at was attended dismally (3 people including myself). Given the film's big budget and meager box office return, it is not clear whether a next "Dragon Tattoo" will be forthcoming. If it were up to me, I'd re-engage Fincher and Mara to adapt Book 2 "The Girl Who Played With Fire" for a US remake. If you liked the earlier Swedish movies or the 2011 US remake of the first film, I'd suggest you keep your expectations for this 2018 movie as low as possible, and then check it out, be it in theater, on Amazon Instant Video, or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.
Claire Foy has stepped in the role and she has stolen the show. She has taken the character of Lisbeth and made it her own. It has great action and great cinematography with some pretty stunning shots in the film and some great effects.
I truly hope we see another installment. I feel like fans were already quick to not give this film right when it was announced. I have seen the film twice andi plan on seeing it again before it leaves theaters. I have watched Girl With The Dragon tattoo numerous times on home video and I also plan to do the same when this is released
If you have not seen the film yet please do so. I can promise if you give this a chance you will not be disappointed. Do not listen to the critics whom are being overly harsh of this film.
There are some great car chaser but I found myself fast forwarding through so much of it. Nothing was keeping my interested in this hard to digest story of cyber criminals bend on global destruction.
The story is set in Sweden so Foy and others speak English with a Swedish accent or so the attempt is made. That alone really weakened the film for me. I just don't know why that makes the story supposedly "real."
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO was the first and best in the series with the Swedish version being incredible. Rooney Mara in the English version was a close second. Unfortunately, SPIDER'S WEB was a complete disappointment.
Sure, changes are made all the time when producing a book into a movie... I just had a hard time adjusting to all of them (and there were many, and they were major) while watching this movie.

El Blu Ray viene en un disco de 50gb y la imagen es simplemente estupenda. Cada detalle se alcanza a apreciar de manera increíble. La película fue terminada en 4K pero desafortunadamente al no contar con buena taquilla Sony decidió no sacar un Blu Ray en UHD, o al menos no en Norteamérica, pero a pesar de eso este FHD no se queda atrás.
A pesar de ser una imagen excelente, definitivamente este no es un disco para usar de demostración, ya que el contraste es excelente pero por el estilo obscuro de la película, se pierde varios detalles, pero repito… es solo por el estilo de la película.
En la parte del sonido, (como ya es costumbre en los Blu Ray’s de Sony) nos dejan con un sonido básico de 5.1 y dejan el sonido Premium solo para los UHD/4K lo cual es muy desafortunado. No me malentiendan este sonido 5.1 es tremendo y realmente agresivo cuando es necesario. El códec nos pone justo en el centro de la acción y tiene un excelente posicionamiento de cada sonido, siendo posible apreciar el movimiento de cada bala o como Lisbeth Salander se desplaza en su motocicleta de un lado al otro de la habitación.
Como último punto solo hay que agregar que el servicio de Amazon fue muy bueno, todo entregado en buenas condiciones, al igual manera que en tiempo y forma.
Con respecto a la película prefiero no dar mi opinión y que cada quien se forme su propio criterio, de lo que no hay duda es que esta es y seguirá siendo una película muy polémica por toda su controversia en la producción. Ahora bien, en lo que respecta al Blu Ray solo hay que decir que esta es sin duda otro excelente entrega por parte de Sony.
