Synopsis

Outcast computer hacker and vigilante defender Lisbeth Salander (Claire Foy) works to avenge women who have been or are being hurt by powerful men. She's recruited to steal and destroy an NSA program that can access the world’s nuclear codes, so that it doesn't wind up in the wrong hands. When the mission goes wrong, Lisbeth soon realizes she needs to go on the run, especially when she finds out NSA agent Edwin Needham (Lakeith Stanfield) is trying to track down the stolen program and is hot on Lisbeth's tail.

As well, Lisbeth gets a visit from a mysterious man who tries to kill her. She discovers a criminal organization is behind the hacking, led by her estranged twin sister Camilla (Sylvia Hoeks), who was left behind in the care of their sexually abusive father when Lisbeth escaped. Now, in order to get revenge, Camilla is trying to frame Lisbeth for murders committed by the criminal organization.

Based on the acclaimed Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson.

  • 1 star "Silly, improbable, bleak, dreary unsophisticated."
  • 1 star "I have not seen it because it seems to have become a vehicle for female revenge. The neonazi subplot in the 1st book is lost? That was imo the raison d'art for the trilogy the fact that a messed up girl got involved was never explored. And the real life death of the author after climbing 7 flights of stairs to a meeting about his newspaper was never connected. It like it's true meaning of fascism has disconnected."
  • 5 stars "ACTION, PLOT"
