A rather disappointing conclusion to the Millennium trilogy, culminating as courtroom drama as expert hacker Lisbeth Salander faces trial for crimes against the state for her actions in the first two segments of the trilogy (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo & The Girl Who Played With Fire).
It's unfortunate that the second instalment to the trilogy was less memorable than the first and the opening to this movie is choppily edited and doesn't trigger memories of prior events, instead just placing you right in the middle of the story and getting on with it.
The acting and production values are all fine and it wouldn't be fair to call it a poor movie, it just really helps if you watch all three films in quick succession, rather than wait for an indeterminate length of time.
