Was well ahead of its time...
Set in the near future in Great Britain, you can imagine it as being about the United States in the not-to-distant future. This is a movie that you should own so that you can watch it a few times... as you will learn a little more with each viewing and may find yourself enlightened about just how fragile our freedoms are in the current political environment. If nothing else, you will... "Remember, remember, the fifth of November..."

V for Vendetta great movie!!!
If you like graphic novels this movie is a great adaptation of the comic book to the silver screen. This is one of the best adaptations I have every seen.

Remember, Remember When Natalie Portman Had Hair
Well, here's the deal: If you like the Wachowski Brothers (the dudes that made The Matrix + sequels), you enjoy Dystopian literature (like "1984" or "Erewhon" or maybe "Fahrenheit 451"), or just like fun movies with a lot of thumbing noses at "The Man," then you will probably dig V For Vendetta.
I went to the theater twice for this one. It's not that it was all that original (far from!), or that the issues were anything new, I think I just enjoyed the fact that the movie didn't have to take itself overly serious to get its point across. Yes, there are some moral issues involved, but at its heart, V For Vendetta is a lively, irreverent action film that gently tweaks the nose of society rather than beating it over the head with a documentary-style political agenda.
And we all want to have fun in the theater, right?
Again, I highly reommend this movie. It's fun, it has wonderful actors and actresses (I especially loved Hugo Weaving as the faceless V), and it doesn't get preachy or pretentious like most films these days.
In fact, the only thing that could have made this movie any better was if Natalie Portman had shown more skin (besides the top of her head). =)
Go buy a copy (but don't bid on the one I'm bidding on, darn you!) today. you won't regret it.Read full review

Great Movie EVERYONE should watch this.
This is a great movie and EVERYONE should watch it. It is about a corrupt government, that NEVER happens, that kills almost 100,000 people and blames it on a scape goat. Then the Government declares Martial Law so it can control and spy on the people. That NEVER happens DOES IT???
