CommentsNote: Contains scenes of Sexual Violence.
This looks like it should be 16 L V SV - Ed.
Complex and mature themes of moderate impact, presented in a confusing and complicated manner, of conspiracy, espionage, cyber wars and crime, assassins and death, vigilantism, targeting abusive men, revenge, power and crime including kidnapping, criminal syndicates, theft of national intelligence posing as a risk to national security and human lives. Themes such as vigintalism, victimization, kidnapping, torture, betrayal and infidelity could be upsetting, emotionally and morally harmful and distressing to younger viewers. Themes of molestation of a young girl by her father may lead to long term psychological footprints on viewers younger than 16. The themes of a rebel vigilante who cannot tolerate patriarchy and injustice and strives to maintain law and order by heroism may influence cognitively immature children. Additionally, some of the positive themes such as heroism and fighting for a just cause could influence younger viewers.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconPlaying for all the world like a miserabilist James Bond film starring Batman’s younger, emo sister, the Girl in the Spider’s Web switches genres completely from the Millennium Trilogy; trading that series’ gritty realism (well, relatively: it also got increasingly silly as it went on), simmering tension and moral greyness with big action set pieces, simplistic characterisation and a plot full of big twists, requiring massive suspensions of disbelief.

Tomatometer quote iconThe Girl in the Spider’s Web distills the action elements of its source material for a less complex - yet still reasonably effective - franchise reboot.
