Luftslottet som sprängdes [2009]

The closing film in the Millennium series is a movie on auto-pilot. The director, the writers, the cast (with the exception of Aksel Morisse and Annika Hallin): nobody makes an effort, everything and everyone is so lifeless. Nothing happens, at least nothing remotely interesting and, by now, we’ve stopped caring about Mikael Blomkvist, Lisbeth Salander or their (nonexistent) relationship. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, as it’s known in America, picks up the pace for the last half hour but it doesn’t make up for the 110 minutes that came before, now wasted. I personally can’t wait for David Fincher to bring his unique vision and revive the series, which has become boring and inconsequential.
