"The Girl in the Spider's Web" is the sequel to the Oscar-winning thriller "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," with a new cast, a new director, and a story that skips several books in the series and dramatically changes the tone. Now, vigilante hacker Lisbeth Salander (Claire Foy, "Unsane") is at the center of a vast political conspiracy to steal a computer program that could give supervillains access to the whole world's nuclear arsenal. Fede Alvarez ("Evil Dead") directs.
It's a far cry from the serial killer nightmare of the original, but in his review at The Wrap, William Bibbiani argues that it's still "a crackerjack thriller," adding "it's not potent, it's not insightful, it's just really, really cool."
