V FOR VENDETTA

 

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.
