“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” is a chapter from the Dragon Tattoo series.
Lisbeth Salander the title character returns from the acclaimed Millennium book series that was created by Stieg Larsson.
This is the on-screen adaptation of the Global Best-Selling novel.
I was totally confused to say the least. There does not appear to be any connection what so ever between the 2009 “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and this installment.
It’s difficult to follow because the character Lisbeth Salander has been played by several actresses. There is no consistency.
I didn’t see anything new and different. The movie is dark, depressing and a bit vile. There is hints of child abuse/molestation (Father/Daughter), but you never actually see it happening.
The movie does clear up at the end when you finally figure out that the sister who was left behind all those years is out for revenge against the sister who escaped.
The positives are that there is some interesting action, cool computer hacks and some kick-ass fight scenes. That’s about it.
Wait for “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” to hit DVD or Blue-Ray.
This is a 2 Star Movie!!
Wow! “Logan” is Action-Packed, Intense, Gritty and Intriguing.
It’s 2029 and all Mutants are supposedly gone. “Logan” (Jackman) lives on the outskirts of the Mexican Border and has a job as a Chauffeur. Professor X (Stewart) is ailing and needs constant care. Logan uses whatever cash he makes purchasing the medication that helps keep Professor X’s brain calm and quiet.
Logan is approached by a woman who says she desperately needs his help. At first Logan refuses indicating that he does not know the woman and does not know how or why she thinks she knows him. Logan soon finds out that the reason the woman needs his help is that she is harboring a young little girl who is a mutant with skills like Wolverine.
There are bad people looking for the little girl. The woman offers Logan 50,000 dollars saying he is the only person who could keep the little girl safe. Mysteriously the little girl shows up at Logan’s place without him knowing about it. This brings the bad people to his place also. The story unfolds from there…
“Logan” is entertaining, suspenseful, very bloody, and violent and has some cool special effects. Hugh Jackman puts so much of himself into the character “Logan” that it’s almost painful to watch.
“Logan” is so intense that it’s not for young children. This is truly an adult Marvel Comics installment.
If you like Marvel Comics, “Logan” is for you!
This is a 4 Star Movie!
