Pulling together elements of "A Clockwork Orange," Batman," and some of the best noir & political thrillers, "V for Vendetta" is more than just fighting words.

Alan Moore's graphic novel of a terrorist sabotaging a Fascist regime in futuristic England delivers on the action. It is also that rare action thriller which has a thoughtful political agenda much in the style of The Matrix; The Wachowskis actually helped produce V For Vendetta. Hugo Weaving gives his best performance as the intelligent swashbuckling freedom fighter known only as V. Natalie Portman is good as his accomplice and confidant. John Hurt is a lot of fun as a despotic tyrant.

"The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous." V for Vendetta is a dramatic and powerful piece of fiction that says so much that it's a shame critics miss understood it. P.S. Hugo Weaving, I love you man.

V for Vendetta is another in a string of imperfect Alan Moore adaptations. You can see why the graphic novel author has a distaste for Hollywood attempting his work. While V for Vendetta features a powerhouse performance from Portman and some captivating action sequences and imagery, it falters on the thematic elements of Moore's material. The political message of Moore's writing here becomes wordy and confusing and some of the more "punchy" elements of the book become lost. Still entertaining, but could have been much more and the graphic novel is still far superior.

An entertaining visual treat that lacks much of the action that was promised. The political message is too pretentious and wordy, for it's own good, and just slows down the middle of the film significantly. A competently made, but slightly underwhelming comic-book adaptation.

Hugo Weaving as V, the high tech William Wallace of London who fights for humanity, freedom and just. It is refreshing to see a cleverly written, well acted action packed film about a corrupt and unjust government. Natalie Portman shines as Evey, their romance is unique and bizarre at the same time. Sensational effects and dramatic fight scenes that can be gruesome, such as the treatment of the main antagonists. Has a few scenes that went a bit too long to make the point and connect to the story. V for Vendetta was good enough to satisfy ones craving for action and justice.

A modern day classic. One with a powerful story and political messages. A must see.
