‘Close’ Trailer: Netflix Gives Noomi Rapace an Action Thriller All Her Own
This time around, Claire Foy plays the iconic Swedish heroine, but Lisbeth Salander's new chapter isn't the stark, intelligent world we're used to. Since , three actresses have played Lisbeth Salander, Sweden's iconic hacker heroine sporting a dragon tattoo and a mohawk. The new movie and Netflix show are nowhere near the same world, yet Foy proves she's up for the motorcycle-riding, scarred-deep-down hero who can hack just about anything. Unfortunately, her stark, intelligent world is now a silly Bond-esque action movie. It's based on the fourth novel in Stieg Larsson's Millennium series, written by David Lagercrantz after Larsson's death. Unlike the careful plotting of the previous movies, director Fede Alvarez goes for big explosions, fast car chases and plots involving -- sigh -- nuclear warhead codes. With a hacker character like Salander, the emphasis on tech runs throughout, but it's tech that works like magic.
Thompson Sun. Awards voters have been waiting for it. One indiscreet critic was called out for leaking word on it. Still others wondered what the point was when the Swedish film version is readily available on Netflix streaming last time we checked, anyway. But now the curtain has lifted and the movie has been seen. We're not looking to spoil it for you, but we know the casual movie fans who aren't aware of the books or earlier films have some questions.
