The verdict is in so vacate your homes, jump in your vehicles, and visit your nearest theater to see V for Vendetta. Okay I'll stop now, but seriously If you haven't seen this movie yet you don't know what your missing. V for Vendetta is based on a graphic novel by Alan Moore, and is set against the futuristic backdrop of Britain ruled by a fascist Hitler-like dictator. In Vendetta, A young women named Evey is rescued by a masked 'terrorist' known as V, who urges the citizenry to rally against their tyrannical government. As Evey learns more about her rescuer, she decides to join his cause. From start to finish I found this film engaging, challenging, thought provoking, and visually stunning. I'm not usually a fan of movies based off of comics, but in recent years they have gotten surprisingly good. With its impressive cast and great story V for Vendetta will be sure to entertain you, and leave you wanting to go back for more. This one's definitely worth paying full price for, and I suggest going and seeing it a least once on the big screen. I give Vendetta a V...err...I mean an A.
