Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie below in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web is a movie that will keep you wondering from start to finish. The acting is superb and will keep you entertained until the end.
Lisbeth Salander is played by actor Claire Foy and she does a magnificent job playing her part. Her character is tough even during adversity and she will keep you engaged throughout the movie. If you enjoy spies, cybercriminal and corrupt government officials (like who can they trust?). This movie is definitely for you.
