However, Wab directed it with such elegance and precision—without tamping down any of the edgier elements in order to make things more palatable to the masses—that it also resulted in a film that was much better than it had any real regard to be. However, she is still a hacker first and foremost and when she is offered a seemingly impossible job to do by former NSA employee The Balder Stephen Merchantshe cannot resist the urge to take it. It seems that Balder invented a computer program named Firefall that gives the person using it the power to hack virtually any nuclear missile system in the world. After getting it up and girl, however, it dawns on him that this was probably not a good idea and so he wants Lisbeth to steal it away from the NSA computers and hide it. This proves to be easy enough but someone else is on the trail as well and steals her computer before blowing up her apartment with her in it.

Did you know Edit. Trivia Stieg Larsson had planned to write ten books about Lizbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist, and the notes are in the possession of his partner, Eva Gabrielson. However, since they were not married, his father and brother inherited the rights to his literary estate upon his death, and the two parties never came to terms about the direction of the series. The family then hired another writer to create new stories.
This film is based on the novel of the same name, the fourth book in the series and the first one not to be written by Stieg Larsson as he had died before he could write anymore entries. Goofs The villains kill Balder and kidnap his son August along with the program they are after. At that point, they have absolutely no idea that August would be able to open the program for them.
It would make more logical sense to take the creator of the program to help them get into it rather than kill him and hope that some other character could.

Top review. Are you Lisbeth Salander the Action hero? I'm gonna sound biased, but the truth is that I am. David Fincher come back!
I miss his take of "Millennium", which was brilliantly engaging. But we gotta accept the fact that the whole trilogy couldn't be adapted because of the first film not being financially successful enough. The fourth book was also the first in the series to not be written by Stieg Larsson, but instead by David Lagercrantz.
Must have been a daunting task following in the footsteps of the world-wide bestsellers.
I remember that my dad recognised him in a store once. So he went up to Lagercrantz, said hello and then left him in peace. My dad said he didn't wanna say anything else because he was being criticised and under pressure for taking over the series. That's when I first heard about it - and yes, I was sceptic as well.
The trailers had me worried. The direction was gonna be faster, more action oriented and appeal to an even wider audience. I get that, sure. But the brilliance of "Dragon Tattoo" is its investigate dark mystery.
Look how the story is told and how the audience is always interested in finding the answers to the questions. Was "Spider's Web" any good? Better than I expected. Fede Alvarez is not a bad director choice.
I underestimated him. He knows how to get the stylish imagery. There's a good eye here since many creative ideas are being used for the shots. It gets points for that.
He uses some shaky cam in the intense scenes. Thankfully there's a good balance of steady and hand-held camera use. I've seen Claire Foy getting much work recently. My bets where that she would portray Lisbeth Salander being hysterical or explosive. I was wrong because she lands a solid performance. Subtle when she needs to be, and even showing the emotion that's underneath Lisbeth's tough exterior.
Surprisingly she's even funny. Sverrir Gudnason shows a warm interpretation of Mikael Blomkvist.
