On Screen Review: The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest

Lisbeth Salander (Noomir Rapace) completes her journey in the final installment of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Series.

"The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest" picks up directly after "The Girl Who Played With Fire".

Lisbeth is recovering in hospital after her brutal encounter with her demented brother and cunning father. But, her recovery is being monitored by a group of men bent on putting their
secrets to rest, secrets that Lisbeth now possesses.

Using bogus murder charges in an attempt to keep her quiet, the men continue to find ways to end her life. All the while Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), along with his Millennium journalistic team, is trying to mass together enough proof to bring down this unlawful sect and free Lisbeth once and for all.

The story is too old to be commented.

Be warned!

This film is 147 minutes long!

Wow, that's long...But not entirely unreasonable. If the film's good enough, I've sat through 3 hour films happily.

Agreed. As long as it's an enjoyable 2.5 hours, then I'm fine with it. Hell, I've sat and watched the whole LOTR Trilogy back-to-back-to-back before. I've thoroughly enjoyed the Millennium Trilogy so far, so I'm definitely eager to see the final movie.

I think if a film is well told then it works even if its a longer film.
Though it can be risky.

Seriously man, I'd happily do a LOTR trilogy or Matrix trilogy, or even The Godfather trilogy. But this was not worth that amount of screen time.

I seriously don't know what all the fuss is about...

Well I definitely wouldn't put this trilogy up there with Matrix or Godfather or LOTR, but I've found it enjoyable so far. They've been fun and stylish movies. Some fairly good suspense/thriller films for me that I've enjoyed watching.

Cheez thats long, i haven't seen any movie in this series, i never got interested in it, maybe because it is based on a Book 'I'm not sure', i never get interested in Movies based on Books, well if it's a comic book, then my money is yours.
