Moore wrote the novel as a commentary on Thatcher's England and the film retains the London setting, but it only takes a few key phrases to echo the post-9/11 era and the rhetoric of the current American administration.

The dark and stylized V for Vendetta is visually exhilarating, provocative and disturbing.

Just when we were ready to give up mainstream movies as braindead,along comes the controversial and gleefully subversive V for Vendetta, a piece of corporate-sponsored art that will have audiences rooting for a bomb-throwing anarchist.

Whether you're mindless or Mensa, you'll find stuff here to challenge and trouble you, the way a good piece of speculative fiction should.

In adapting Moore's sprawling narrative into a workable screenplay, the Wachowski Brothers have come up with a balance of thoughtful philosophy and all-out action that feels more natural and organic than it did in their Matrix films.

A brutally intelligent political thriller...

Moore and Lloyd posed this paradigm in a Cold War era and it never came to pass. Leave it to the Wachowski Brothers to update it for the War on Terror, or rather its aftermath.

V for Vendetta is a milestone. Maybe not a big marker, but a milestone nonetheless.It is anti-establishment redux.

Forget the faux accent, it's the raw emotion [Portman] displays, especially in the film's latter stages, that's positively Streep-like and most captivating.

The details of V's beef with society are hazy, but the film has a certain purity of spirit.

Major studio pictures can certainly be more creative, but they're rarely as bold as this.

blends modern-day politics with good old-fashioned derring-do to explore the grey areas (in a very grey-looking London) between freedom, justice, dissidence and retribution.

When the script sticks close to Alan Moore, it works best. Which, sadly, is seldom.

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.
April 18, 2007
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.
March 24, 2007
It's viciously, vibrantly, vigorously, very, very good.
