Storyline

Scarred forever by the hideous and unforgivable sins of her father, the antisocial, technologically brilliant computer hacker, Lisbeth Salander, finds herself ridding Stockholm of sadists who hate women. It's been three silent years since she last saw her old journalist friend, Mikael Blomkvist, after the events of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), and now, Lisbeth is with her back to the wall, hunted down like prey for stealing Project FireFall: a powerful tool designed for the Americans, developed to breach and control most online defence systems. Now, as the NSA, the Swedish Security Service, and deadly Russians are hot on her trail, more and more, Lisbeth's horrible past comes back to haunt her, and no one in this world is safe if the state-of-the-art computer software falls into the wrong hands. What does the future have in store for Lisbeth Salander, the girl in the spider's web? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

Although Claire Foy worked with a linguistics coach to perfect her Swedish accent. Her accent is a mix of Danish and German, and bares little to no resemblance to Swedish. The vast majority of her co-stars speaks with a convincing Swedish accent. See more »

Quotes

Camilla Salander: Are you not Lisbeth Salander, the righter of wrongs? The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? The girl who hurts men who hurt women? All those lucky ladies. Do you remember that morning? For sixteen years I've been watching you. Why did you help everyone but me, sister?

Alternate Versions

In Singapore, the theatrical release was edited in order to obtain an NC16 classification (after the uncut version was passed M18). The distributor chose to remove brief sexual images in three scenes (sight of two characters having sex on a mobile phone screen, a shot of full female nudity, and some discreet sexual images in a nightclub). The film remains uncut in all other countries worldwide. See more »

User Reviews

 
David Fincer's version is much better!
5 June 2019 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

Fede Alvarez should stick with horror! This was too much action and not enough story - despite that it was quite enjoyable to some extent. Some sweet stylish bits and stunts. Claire Foy & Lakeith Stanfeld were awesome; but I prefer Rooney Mara as the titular role and Daniel Craig as the supporting role. I honestly wouldn't recommend this.
