Every time Mr. Weaving is on screen the spirit of Mr. Moore's character comes alive. Those moments, at least, are worth fighting for.

... manages to succeed as both great entertainment and a thoughtful reflection on current politics.

The swashbuckling first hour is superior to the second, which bursts at the seams with backstory, but a rousing climax makes this the most potent piece of agitpop in years.

It's viciously, vibrantly, vigorously, very, very good.

A movie that has been made in the Wachowski style but lacks their distinctive visual flair.

Forget the Ides of March, beware the 5th of November.

I know it sounds a little strange to be recommending a movie about a revolutionary at this time, but I thoroughly enjoyed this motion picture and, if taken for its fantasy alone, it provides great escapist entertainment.

Turgid, overinflated, pseudo-philosophical, bogus radicalism from the Wachowski brothers.

I'm thinking the message is that there's a little V in everyone. Unfortunately,on screen there's only a lot of Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

...a somewhat old-fashioned adventure flick, filled with action, humor, romance, politics, and the kind of swashbuckling that audiences hadn't seen in movies for many years.

Revenge is liberty. I can't recall hearing that particular idea from Tolstoy, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Vaclav Havel, Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama or the makers of Batman Begins. But as the Wachowski brothers would say, that's another paradigm.

Much to admire and enjoy, but what could have been a meaningful parable about individual freedoms comes off as heavy-handed politicizing that doesn't quite add up.

Feels far too starched and clean to do its source material justice.

A futuristic London where the government uses fear to elicit cooperation from the people is smashed by a man in a mask. V for Vendetta is an allegory of modern America.

For all its anti-establishment esprit, it's more a case of Z for Zzzz.

Don't believe the hype. All this muddled movie has to offer is more numbly regurgitated, willfully cartoonish pop political commentary.
