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

Well, as with "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", I like the ingredients, not the receipe. It is nice to see big espionage movies with complex female lead characters, not just male centered James Bond type flicks where women are just Bond Girls. But I wish the stories were also more interesting, with less predictable plots. The somber atmosphere, actually, is quite a change from the Bond-like grandiose tone.
