I think the cinematography, music, and pacing was much better in the american version, but the acting and content were better in the original. Noomi Rapace was what really made the original my favourite of the two, and really, she's why I liked Sherlock Holmes 2, and just about doubled my anticipation of Prometheus.

They are both very well made adaptions of a very good book.

They're both very VERY well made movies. Seriously, it's a tough choice to make between both movies. I personally prefer the American version because of how brutal Ms. Rooney is with her acting. Can't wait to see how the remakes for the sequels turn out.

Yes. Noomi plays Lisbeth more to the character because of how stone-cold she is and how she moves about...but...I just love Rooney more. She is as well cold but there's something more attractive and inviting about how Rooney plays the role. I also am torn between the styling of both takes but...haha Rooney stole my heart to the point where I myself bleached my eyebrows. I identify with how they portrayed 2011 version. Amazing actors as well. Daniel did a far better job than the Swedish actor. *shruggs* to each is own. But Ms. mara stole my heart.

Both versions are impressive, but I prefer the Swedish one.

I've seen neither, but I love the cover of Immigrant Song in the trailer for the American one.

I've seen all 3 Swedish versions and the 1 American version thus far, I'd have to solidly go with the American version being better. From a film making and story perspective David Fincher far exceeds the TV mini-series style feeling of the Swedish trilogy. It's a very complex story with a lot of jumping between time periods and that is something Fincher has immense experience with. He does it seamlessly and brilliantly. We can't fail to mention the music by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, a hard hitting and beautiful soundtrack for an even better movie.

Can't decide. Both were very gripping versions of the story. The American version was a bit harder to watch, though, because some of it hit a little close to home, with the hopeless feelings. Very sweet how she got her revenge, though :D

I'll go with the swedish version, though I have never seen either, simply because most of the time I don't like Daniel Craig

I have heared the original title for the first time now. In germany the movie is named "Verblendung" which means sth like "infatuation" ... :o
Anyway I go with the swedish one ;)

The original one is mostly better...Noomi Rapace is not only that hacker-gothic girl but shows us so many different emotions...but I don't want to discriminate the new movie.

They're both good; I don't think I prefer either one.

I was glad to see Craig fulfill a decent dramatic role; I was afraid he'd be typecast as a Bond-like hypermacho superdude, but he pulled off the slightly-haggard everyman quite convincingly.

Will vote as soonas it's out here (Friday). Was suprised to see Noomi in Sherlock Holmes, quite a shift in character!
