Good for mid to old teens

Nice movie, not for the faint of heart, but if you are willing to deal with the content, it is a great movie. Not for little kids, or young teens.

Less graphic than the first two movies, and also not as good as volume 1.

(This review is about the Extended Edition) "The Girl who kicked the Hornet's Nest" is the third and final chapter of the Millennium trilogy. While "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was perfect, "The Girl who played with Fire" was disappointing. "The Girl who kicked the Hornet's Nest" is somewhere in between, but is rather average than good. It is a completion to the second movie and as such saves some rather weak plot points from its preceeder. It looks better than Volume 2, but still it lacks any real surprises. It will never reach the superb, well-directed and well-written first volume. Again, Noomi Rapace is the best part of the movie, acting great as prrotagonist Lisbeth Salander. "The Girl who kicked the Hornet's Nest" is better than its preceeder, but still is not nearly as good as "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". (SPOILERS may follow:) The movie is the least graphic of the trilogy. There is only one scene of R-violence, in which a man is shot in the head on-screen (blood spurts) and the killer then shoots himself in the head (seen from a distance but visible). There is some other violence. Towards the end, a man who can't feel any pain is nailed to floor with a nail gun (as self-defense). We see a video tape, on which a man is seen raping a woman (from "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"), but the worst is off-screen, you can still hear it. (END OF SPOILERS) This movie is suitable for viewers 14 and up, as it contains one pretty violent scene, but still it is what is handable for teens.

NOT VERY BAD.

Sex:3/10 Violence:5/10 Language:3/10 Drinking:3/10 Scariness/Intense Scenes:2/10 Total Content:16/50(8 and up) Violence is not over the top but there are still scenes of bloody violence at times .Theseare not too graphic.Sex is moderate and not explicit compared to the girl with the dragon tattoo.There is naughty language here and there but very seldom.Drinking happens infrequently throughout the movie but nothing that wouldn't appear in an PG13 movie.The movie does not depend on intense scenes to shock the viewer ,the violence and gore already does that role but when they do occur,they take viewers by surprise .The car chase scene is the closest the film ever got to to being intense .Overall,this is a so so movie with a few bad parts here and there but nothing too big.Parental guidance suggested. Suggested rating:R for some violence,language ,drinking and sexual scenes

i rate this title NOT FOR KIDS

The good stuff * Messages: As dark as the movie's content gets, it has a strong message about the idea that when people are willing to take great risks for the sake of justice, good can triumph over evil. And even when that evil is being perpetrated by the highest-ranking government officials, justice can be served. Also, you don't have to conform to society's standards to be a good and just person. Appearances are often deceiving; the most benign-seeming people can be capable of corruption and wickedness, while those whose appearances can be shocking may be virtuous and incorruptible. * Role models: Salander and Blomqvist are tenacious, courageous, loyal, brilliant, and honest. Women are portrayed in this movie as either competent, effective professionals or as dominated sexual victims. Government officials are shown as either corrupt, depraved, and willing to sacrifice anything to save face or as high-minded, justice-seeking individuals. What to watch out for * Violence: Many intense, violent scenes. A hulking villain kills two police officers, breaking one's neck. A hospitalized man is shot in the head at point blank range; suicide by gun. A villain pushes a woman from a moving car; assassins spray machine gunfire into a cafe and are then killed by police. A stalk-and-chase scene ends with a gory capture. Also flashbacks to sequences from the earlier films in the trilogy that involve the initiation of a rape, a girl being shot in the head and dragged to a shallow grave, that same girl striking her assailant with an axe, and a man leaping from a car enveloped in flames. A brief view of a child pornography website is shown on a computer screen. * Sex: Though there's no overt sexual activity, major story points involve discussion of sexual violence and obsession. A young woman is partially nude, seen from behind. * Language: Occasional swearing and obscenities: "d**n," "pissed off," "h**l," "s--t," "ba***rd," "Christ," "f--king." Consumerism: Apple, Gaggia. * Drinking, drugs, & smoking: Moderate alcohol consumption in social settings. In two scenes, characters smoke cigarettes.
