Product Description

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest is the explosive final instalment of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy.

Under police guard in hospital, Lisbeth Salander (NOOMI RAPACE) is charged with murder and awaits the trial that has the country gripped. Cut off from all communication with the outside world, she must rely on journalist and former lover, Mikael Blomkvist (MICHAEL NYQVIST) to prove her innocence and expose the political cover up that threatens to destroy her freedom. In his way stands a mysterious group who will go to any lengths to keep the shocking truth of their actions a secret.

From Amazon.co.uk

It takes a while, but the saga of one of the more fascinating characters put on the page or the screen in recent years comes to a satisfying conclusion with The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, the last installment of the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson's so-called Millennium Trilogy. That character is Lisbeth Salander, the computer-hacking, Goth-loving, dark angel of revenge, played by Noomi Rapace with the same black stare and taciturn charisma that were so riveting in the first two films (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire, both also released in 2010). When we last saw her, Lisbeth was trying to kill her father, a Russian defector and abusive monster; in the process, the girl was seriously wounded by her half-brother, a hulking freak with a strange condition that renders him impervious to physical pain. As the new film opens, all three are still alive, and she's being taken to a hospital to recover while waiting to stand trial for attempted murder. Meanwhile, her champion and erstwhile lover, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), sets about uncovering the full extent of the conspiracy responsible for (among other crimes) Lisbeth's being sent to an asylum at age 12 while her father was protected by evil forces within the government. This investigation, which puts not only Lisbeth but also Blomkvist and his colleagues in considerable danger, leads to "the Section," a thoroughly repellent bunch of aging liars, killers, thieves, and perverts with a great many secrets they'd like to keep (the oily Dr. Peter Teleborian, who was responsible for Lisbeth's "treatment" as a child, emerges as the most vile antagonist since the guardian who brutally assaulted her in the first film). Although much of the exhaustive detail about these and other matters has been eliminated by director Daniel Alfredson (who also helmed The Girl Who Played with Fire) and screenwriters Jonas Frykberg and Ulf Ryberg for the purpose of adapting the novel to the screen, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is still quite long (148 minutes), and less kinetic and violent than the earlier films; there are some exciting sequences, but Lisbeth, previously an unlikely but magnetic action heroine, is seen mostly on a hospital bed or in a courtroom, and much of the film is spent on procedural matters. Still, the fact that the loose ends are wrapped up in fairly conventional fashion doesn't make the conclusion any less satisfying. In fact, the only real letdown comes from knowing that we won't get to see Noomi Rapace play Lisbeth Salander again. --Sam Graham

If you liked the books you will invariably like the films but as with all books to film you have to release the extensive details that made the books awesome.
The plot continues from played with fire and travels through the rehabilitation of Lisbeth and subsequent trial for her fathers attempted murder.
Most of it plays by the book with just less time dwelt on the little things.
I really enjoyed it even for an english subtitled film, although it does detract from the enjoyment a little bit.
The plot stays true to the book and is all round a good attempt at the switch to big screen. I would say if you liked the books you will like the films, just go in with an open mind and you will be pleased with the overall result.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is a masterpiece. A superb thriller that introduces us to the best heroine in thrillers for years, Lizbeth Salandar. The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest is the conclusion to the trilogy that began in that first great film. Picking up from where the sequel The Girl Who Played With Fire left off, the film sees Lizbeth, played by the superb Noomi Rapace in hospital after being shot and left for dead by her evil father while her friend, the journalist Bloomqvist takes the fight to the corrupt politicians in an attempt to clear Lizbeth's name. While the 2 sequels haven't been quite as good as the magnificent first film, this is still a very enjoyable and highly reccommended trilogy of films. The upcoming remakes of these directed by David Fincher and starring Daniel Craig and Roony Mara have a lot to live up to and they would normally be remakes that i would be dreading but if anyone can pull it off, it's Fincher. The tension is superb and leads to a very satisfying conclusion.

Format: DVD
"The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest," (2010), (147 minutes), is third and last in the Swedish film series based on the action-filled Millennium Trilogy by the late Stieg Larsson. It is a violent, dark and suspenseful thriller and a courtroom drama as well. It is not, however, quite as intense or engrossing as the first in the series, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo [DVD]. For one thing, it's got much less plot, and the pacing is rather leisurely, all things considered. Expert computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace), spends much of the picture flat on her back in hospital, recovering from injuries sustained in the second episode of the story. She is the prime suspect in the murder of three people, facing trial, and targeted for death by various thugs. Her friend and former lover Mikael Blomkvist(Michael Nyquist), crusading editor of the muck-raking journal Millenium, is trying to prove her innocence, but, in order to prove her innocence of the charges, she's going to have to share details of her sordid past with the court.

HORNET'S NEST, like its predecessors in the series, gives us a lot of Sweden on screen: the buildings, their interiors, the cars and traffic of its cities. The coffee-fueled lives of its citizens. It's expertly done, and these are things that I doubt the American versions will be able to provide. The controlled underacting of its principals helps to keep the film grounded. Mind you, it does sometimes seem that Lisbeth must have superhuman powers to survive the things she does: still, like the rest of us, she occasionally fuels up by inhaling the odd pizza.

Format: DVD
"The Girl Who Kicked A Hornet's Nest" is really more like "The Girl Who Played With Fire Part II" -- this movie begins mere minutes after the end of the previous one, and everything stems from the film before it. The third and final film adapted from Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy is a taut, unnerving exploration of a government cover-up -- with the titular "girl" as their victim.

Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) has been shot in the head, and is rushed to a hospital for surgery -- the same hospital as her evil father Zalachenko. And since she's still being framed for murder, Mikael (Michael Nyqvist) devotes the forthcoming issue of "Millennium" to clearing her name and revealing the government's dirty secrets (including how they had her institutionalized as a kid).

But when Zalachenko threatens to rat them out, the "Section" sends an assassin to shoot him. Unfortunately, this group also wants want to punish Lisbeth by sticking her in another mental home, and the pedophile director Teleborian is all too happy to lock her up. The best chance Lisbeth has is to send her own "autobiograpy" to Mikael.

It's not a whodunnit, and it's not a straight thriller. "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest" is a slow-moving, complex affair, centering on powerful men who try to crush women who defy them, and a system filled with in corrupt muck, cruelty and murder. It's part legal drama, part conspiracy story, and part bloody thriller.

And while not as harrowing as the movies before it, this movie is a bleak tangled web of threats, evidence,stalkings, and the occasional gory death (along with the hysteria that accompanies them).
