Films with some of the best twist endings. Suggestions welcome; just don't spoil the ending in the comments :)
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
There's A Storm Coming
After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close supervision in a hospital and is set to face trial for attempted murder on her eventual release. With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his researchers at Millennium magazine, Salander must prove her innocence. In doing this she plays against powerful enemies and her own past.
First she's getting tattoos, then she's playing with fire, and now she's kicking hornet nests?
Hey The Girl, why don't you just chill the fuck out? Try a hobby. Maybe build some tiny boats and put them in bottles or some shit. Geez.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little disappointed she didn't literally kick a hornet's nest.
Skrillex is a much better actor than he is a musician
This review is for the Extended Version from the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy!
Or as I like to refer to this film as...
Sex, Lies and Video Rapes!
Heavy Police Procedural, Courtroom Drama to Galore! Too many names and faces to remember but that doesn't seem to matter! As interesting as that all is we aren't here for all of the hoopla were here to get our daily fix of Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace)!
She and her co-hort Plague are character's unlike anything we have ever seen before in a serious adult drama! They're original, colorful and refreshing persona's that add spice to an otherwise bland world!
A big compilation of uneventful sequences and a very boring pacing issue pervades Alfredson's take on the Millennium final delivery. Starting from the point in which the second film concluded, the events lead to nothing. It is pretty clear that there was a need to wrap things up. Unfortunately, this attempt culminated in uninteresting resolutions that would have worked better if left to the viewer's imagination. The personality of the characters is either changed for the worse or majoritarily lost, except for Lisbeth, whose enygmatic character is further explored returning to her iconic DVD cover look, which is maybe the most interesting feature besides the climax, which had interesting stuff going on.
Needless to say, the aforementioned personal claimings are,…
I don't blame them for struggling to adapt the third novel. Even at three hours, it's way too complex a story to get into film format. If I hadn't read the book, I think I'd have been confused about the characters -- both good guys and bad.
Still, bow down to Noomi Rapace. Astonishing.
Too many plots, so it's easy to get confused among Blomkvist, Berger, Bjurman and Bublanski.
I'm pretty satisfied with the trilogy, but the first remains the most interesting - and one I'd most likely recommend.
A mostly satisfying conclusion to the series. And also quite certainly the film with the slowest tempo of story unraveling, at times it came to a nail biting drag, especially as the events were occurring within the courtroom. My only grievance is that for the amount of story being told the film did drag out a bit too much. But that's just a tiny observation.
If you got this far following the Millennium trilogy then this movie is a must.
Just like the second movie, not as shocking or interesting like the first one. A decent closure for Lisbeth's story. Hope the books are better.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Por mais que seja menos intenso que seu antecessor, o último filme da trilogia Millenium encerra bem a jornada de Lisbeth e Mikael, com direito a cenas de tribunal que, se não são espetaculosas como as de Hollywood reservam pelo menos grandes viradas e dá pro espectador vibrar com algumas decisões.
O sorriso contido, o jeito introvertido de se relacionar tem pé num passado difícil de Lisbeth, mas o filme sueco consegue apresentar uma personagem feminina forte sem cair na pieguice das produções americanas.
Uma grande triologia de histórias contundentes sobre terríveis e monstruosos homens que não amavam as mulheres.
The third and final instalment in the Millenium Trilogy. This is a court room drama and is for me the weakest.
Original Title: Luftslottet Som Sprangdes
This is more like it. The enormous dramatic potential has been well-handled and put to good use, and the trilogy has redeemed itself from what can only be called 'second film syndrome'. Alfredson weaves the complex, labyrinthine plot with much more assuredness and maturity than in The Girl Who Played with Fire. A resoundingly satisfactory conclusion to the tales of Salander.
Considering that the majority of the action here is of old white men talking, Alfredson gives each scene an air of vitality and urgency that stirs the proverbial stew until it well and truly boils in an explosive but measured third act. He plays around with eyeline shots and the 180 degree line to enhance the dynamics between the…
It is very hard to make a successful movies three times in a row following the most popular "Millennium series" edition of the late Swedish author and journalist Stieg Larsson. This 2009 Swedish thriller film is directed by Daniel Alfredson and compared with the bestselling novel of the same name is well behind! Some slow introduction, then picking up the tempo, dropping it again, only at the end we had the right thriller pace! In this third (and last) film of the series, Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) is airlifted to a hospital in Gothenburg where surgeons remove bullets from her shoulder, hip, and head, where her father, Alexander Zalachenko, shot her. The young hospital doctor, Dr. Jonasson (Aksel Morisse) is…
Not "gay with exceptions". Not "curious". Not doing it for the sake of a plot twist or a neat ending.…
