Palmat's rating of the film The Girl in the Spider's Web

Solid thriller that does not rival the swedish movies but surpasses Fincher´s anemic misfire. Alvarez is very adept at keeping things taut and too the point which sometimes hampers the movie. The character and plot development could have used more time to inject urgency and weight to Salander's arc. Still, the movie looks gorgeous and Banos score is perfect.
