In some act the movie is kind of exaggerating or confusing I guess but overall the performance of every actress is beautifully done with their fearfulness or anxiousness or insecurities. And it’s really worth watching but maybe you don’t find your thrilling twist but you will satisfy because some harsh truth of real life is here.

Widows 2018
An intelligent and emotional movie which represent the genius mastermind of some women & how they got their power through self discovery. Smart and violent crime with some sharp twist which is driven by grief, fear and desperation.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web (2018)

I like the boldness and so emotionless acting of Claire Foy. I think the movie comes to life because of her acting. For me the rating is 7.3/10.
The Girl in the Spider's Web
The story is okay I guess but the new Lisbeth is bad-ass. But if you wanna compare this with the original franchise then you might get disappointed so just try to enjoy a movie with the action-thrilling experience. The main fun to see the perfection of the visualization of every character.
The Girl in the Spider's Web
The Plot: In Stockholm, Sweden, vigilante hacker Lisbeth Salander is hired by computer programmer Frans Balder to retrieve Firefall, a program capable of accessing the world’s nuclear codes that he developed for the National Security Agency, as Balder believes it is too dangerous to exist. Lisbeth successfully retrieves Firefall from the NSA’s servers but is unable to unlock it. Lisbeth asks her former lover investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist for help identifying her assailants Jan Holtser, who stole her program & tries to kill her. Blomkvist learns Holtser previously worked for Lisbeth’s late father, crime lord Alexander Zalachenko, and is now affiliated with an elusive international crime syndicate known as “The Spiders”. Lisbeth learns that their leader is her twin sister Camilla Salander, whom Lisbeth believed to be dead. When they were children, Lisbeth decided to run away from their abusive father, and when Camilla hesitated, Lisbeth left her behind. After years of torture, Camilla faked her suicide and went underground to form the Spiders.
Well 😏 I think I have told the main part of the movie but trust me still you will feel chills when you see the movie.

 Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively
This seems like some typical mystery movie but that’s where you are going to be wrong about this movie because it is going to play with your nerve like wow factor.
But there’s also some disappointment too like you can actually predict the next scene easily but the achiebvement is although you predict everything you can say wow too. For me the movie is kind of appealing type comedic but with so much dark drama thrilling experience and a spoon of mystery. I think the movie is so simple but also so balanced with the head games of suspence.
