V for Vendetta is
an enjoyable, smartly designed, and superbly acted thriller that
actually gives you something to think about while you're watching
stuff get blown up--like famous British buildings.
I don't want to spoil the plot in hopes
that people will be able to discover this amazing story for themselves,
much like I did.
The effects are impressive and it's a delight
to see an all-around intelligent blockbuster for a change.
Whether you agree or not with the political
anarchy displayed in this movie--it is just a movie, based on
a graphic novel written 25 years ago.
Hugo Weaving turns out a stellar performance
as "V," the man behind the Guy Fawkes mask, with Natalie
Portman in one of her best roles to date.
It's a chilling cinematic reminder of the
future yet to come.
This comic book fantasy thriller in which
a vigilante known as "V" (a masked freedom fighter)
with a tortured past plots a revolution.
He battles oppression in a futuristic totalitarian
Britain that involves many, many explosives.
I found this unrealistic tale to be compelling,
rousing, and at times a strangely moving entertainment.
