The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's NestThe final entry in Stieg Larsson's Millenium trilogy is a victim of its own plot or placement as being the third film. It lacks the punch and excitement of the first two films and is a more talky and stationary film, something the conclusive film of a series of this nature should not predominantly be. It picks up where the last one left off, with Lisbeth Salander being life-flighted to the hospital after the severe beating from her mongrel half-brother and insidious father, who now unfortunately is in the same hospital as she is. While she recuperates and prepares for trial where she is accused of the attempted murder of her father, her journalist friend Mikael is preparing her defense in the latest issue of his publication while trying to uncover the truth behind the group that backs her father and wants her dead. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest isn't a bad film. It has some of the pacing, excitement, and tension (particularly in the end) that was indicative of the first two films. Due to the way the story is structured, it just isn't able to keep up with the first two films of the series.
