Performance of Claire is brilliant and she emotes well in some intense sequences. The rest of the cast did justice to the roles.
The script and the screenplay are interestingly designed. The action sequences are well made. The natural performances of the stars add some flavor to the script. Yet, the film looks like a typical commercial film, after a certain point. So, the audiences start comparing the film with the previous versions. But, the director keeps the audiences engaged with the racy screenplay.
What’s Not There?
Although the film has some flaws including the commercial elements, with the engaging screenplay, the makers could make the audiences watch the film without getting bored. The Girl In The Spider’s Web – Watchable Once
