The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (Luftslottet som sprangdes)

Rated R 148 min. 2010

Goth über-heroine Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) spends most of this third and final adaption of the late Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy in a hospital ward, recovering from injuries inflicted by her abusive, KGB-defector father and her Aryan, pain-impervious half-brother. In place of the kinetic energy, character development, and Greek tragic underpinning that fueled the two previous Girl Who... films, director Daniel Alfredson cobbles together a tepid political caper, a courtroom drama so preposterous it would make Hollywood blush and cartoonish misogyny that bastardizes any relevant critiques of Swedish culture. When the filmmakers find one final excuse to put a nail gun in Lisbeth's hands, it's less a hornet's fury than ham-fisted homage signifying the final nail in the coffin of an otherwise popular, entertaining series.
