No, "The Girl in the Spider's Web" isn't a Spider-man spinoff about a young woman ensnared by Peter Parker, but you'd be forgiven for thinking the latest, iteration of Stieg Larsson's thrillers has some superhero DNA.Following the spikey Swedish trilogy, with Noomi Rapace, and David Fincher's menacing and murky "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," with Rooney Mara, we can palpably feel Lisbeth (here, Claire Foy) being lured out of the shadows and toward the movie mainstream.In this latest chapter, Lisbeth strives, like a Scandinavian 007, to keep a world-threatening atomic weapons program dubbed "Firefall" out of the wrong hands.Lisbeth, a volatile cyberpunk vigilante propelled by her own demons of abuse, remains a great character in search of a decent plot.As compelling as Foy is, she's also missing a quality that any Lisbeth ought to have.
