That would require some creative camera lingering, and sets that didn't look like sound stages. If this had been made 15 years ago -- as a mini-series -- perhaps some of the gritty integrity and enduring strength of the human spirit might have been retained.
Nowhere in this superficial yawnfest is the true understanding of revolution made manifest. Nowhere is the audience truly brought in to and made a part of V's tormented motivations or Evey's harrowing journey.
The screen story was already written, and the filmmakers ignored it, rewriting whole scenes, cutting out others, eliminating a good 75% of the story's power, meaning and resonance. The characters are shallow, empty husks of their original selves, and the pacing is abominable.
If you enjoyed Alan Moore and David Lloyd's graphic novel from 1988 -- as I did -- do yourself a favor and avoid this pale rendition. Alan Moore has disassociated himself from this film, and with good reason. A few of the character names are the same, and a couple of sequences bear a slight resemblance -- but that's it. The fire, the passion, the heart and soul that so infused the novel is completely absent.
This is a movie that I can enjoy once a year. Visually amazing. love the casting. If you've never seen, you must watch it at least once.
better than the usual movies made. would recommend to anyone.
My favourite movie of all time. Love how V thinks and blows stuff up to make a point. Very dope movie. And no one can kill or give a killer death treat to 1812 overture better than V.
although the hero was masked all the time, he succeeded in giveing the feelings, attitudes, emotions that at the end of the movie one can cry on his death. also the heroen has a craftsmanship in her facial expressions in the transformation of her character from weekness into strenght. well done... realy well done.
All I can say is that I fell in love with Hugo Weaving in this movie, too!!! I watch it over and over again. What a great movie!!
Very good. Loved it. Defintely one of the best movies of 2006.
Best movie of `06 HANDS DOWN!!
remember, remember, the fith of november. I know i will! this movie rocked! Best movie of 06 so far, a must see!
This is the best movie with Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman so far.!!!!! the action is awesome the stroy is awesome and "V" is just sooo perfect I LOVED IT 5/5***** Humble
Could have called it V for Vocabulary. Listening to the hero`s mastery of the English language was an orgasmic experience. The movie has depth and action. Definitely the best of its genre for a long time.
Was lost for awhile, and at times it dragged on, however the movie does a good job of keeping your attention and provides an assortment of action and plot to touch on a variety of peoples interests.
Very entertaining. Lots of action. Great movie.
It was ok, but dragged by the end.
I felt that this movie had similarities to the whole conspiracy thing about Bush starting 9/11, and that using fear as a tool for power. Although this is in Great Britian and the characters are not even close to dipicting any resemblance to Bush and whatnot. I just felt that this movie was scratching the surface of it.
WOOOO frigin awesome movie
This was a fantastic movie. Very entertaining.
I really loved this movie !! The dialogue was interesting, I was constantly stimulated.
another fighting movie where the hero can not die.
I loved it. I wish I had counted how many times they used a word that started with `v`
nice dark thriller
V is unique and quirky. A must see!
Not one of my more favorite movies. I won`t add it to my large movie collection.
I really enjoyed the show. Intrigueging, suspense, with a flair of spice. You got to see this one!
Brilliant storyline, action sequences and finish. A must see.
Dark and intelligent - definately a "see again" movie.
V for Vendetta is a good social commentary for the path society is going down. The characters are funny yet dramatic, however they have a point. A movie with no secondary characters that are not really needed is a norm in todays hollywood, this movie deter`s from that. If you are the kind of person who likes social commentaries or even just a good story i would see V for Vendetta.
Awesome...It was a great movie to watch.
It was pretty good. Nice to see Hollywood come out with something different for a change.
i loved this movie it had everything a movie should have.
It was amazingly relevant to today`s world landscape.
A movie not to be missed, unique and interesting
Well adapted, the change of allegory better suits critical thinking in this age of "the War on terra!"
One of the best comic adaptions in recent memory, heck, one of the best movies in recent memory.
The image of that stupid mask is burned into retinal wall. Dumb movie, had 1 sweet 5 minute scene surrounded by 2 hours of endless boredom.
Very powerful film, it falls under 2 catagories: Either you hate it or Love It!
This is one of the best movies that I have seen since the summer. Written by the Wachowski Brothers (of "Matrix" fame), this movie is set in the near future where world-wide plagues, terrorism and war has turned England into a factious state ruled by a ruthless dictator. Out of the oppression rises one masked man named "V", in the disguise of Guy Fawkes (a man who tried to blow-up parliament in the 17th century). The story follow him and "Evey" (played by Natalie Portman) over the course of a year. There are some stunning visuals and intense drama and action in this movie. I found it so provocative and intense that I even got a headache. So p
The special effects were excellent, however the acting was so so!
Voila, a veritable vivifying visual verbiage.
Truly riveting...just saw it recently and I really liked the concepts that it presented. I recommend it to anyone.
She wa samazing ,and very gorgeous. Good work u guy keep it up we love it
Natalie Portman is amazing!
Absolutely amazing - I never expected something so profoundly moving from a DC label! There were aspects to it that I didn`t love, but the overall experience was spectacular and meaningful in a way that few action movies ever attain.
very nice movie, it will make you think about our world. we are heading exactly where this moving is showing!
The movie was awesome! I have not read the graphic novel but it is a movie most of us can relate to ... Imperialism. A guide to defeat dictators.
