"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.

M for Magnum Opus

This is why the Wachowskis should write screenplays more often. Man. That was awesome.

KingInTheNorth mentioned in his review that the film was reminiscent of Children of Men. While Children of Men is much more apocalyptic and tragic, the general atmosphere of a dystopian Britain is there, like A Clockwork Orange. A corrupt society.

The editing in the movie is amazing. The whole film feels like a juxtaposition of action, story and past events, although barely anything is shown in flashbacks.
James McTeigue made one of the best debuts possible, by letting his style combine with the excellent tone of the film. It's just a marvel of modern filmmaking, where a little bit of everything came together and it just worked.
The script shares much of the same newfound faith in the characters...

V for Vendetta

To all the guys who have seen, and liked "Children of Men". This movie has quite similar future visions. It is also located in Britain, a future not that far and the other countries seem to be messed-up.

We get very early introduced to the main chararcters in the movie, which makes us lose some (but very less) build-up. But by keeping on watching, everything gets clearer, the build-up stronger and the characters better.

The movie has a very obvious message, but who cares? The message underlines the meaning of the movie, no matter if it is obvious or not. To keep on going with the script: There are so many quotable lines in there, you don't even know what is the best. "We don't invent the news- the government does- we just tell them"

Hugo Weaving. My word Elrond, you are brillian...

"V For Vendetta" by Yojimbo

In a great britain of the near future, a right wing politician has swept to power on the crest of a wave of Daily Mail inspired conservative nazism. Using a combination of spin and propaganda through the media, he has convinced the populace to sign away their rights and liberties until one masked man decides to fight back. Thank God I don't REALLY live in a Britain like that...! I was expecting great things from this film, its combination of politics, imagery and stylised action is exactly the kind of thing that appeals to me. Unfortunately, this level of expectation can often lead to disappointment, but what I was presented with here was a thoughtful, intelligent and wonderfully written "superhero" film in which the hero has no special powers or magic tricks; he is just an ordinary man w...
