V for Vendetta Reviews
The Best Thing About The Movie Is How Well Directed This Movie Is And The Not Best Thing About The Movie Is There Very Few Action Sequences As They Were Showing On Trailer But That Few Action Sequence Was Also So Awesome And Every Character In This Movie Is So Well Written I Loved It And It Is One Of The Most Underrated Comic Book Adapted Movie Of All Time
Guy Fawkes was a traitor who would be called a terrorist by today's standards. He tried to bomb parliment and would have killed hundreds had his plot not been foiled. So for the main character to be chosen to associate with this monster is wrong. Next, there were supposed to be parallels drawn to the Bush presidency? I don't see this but I do believe it's wrong to try and demonize a president who tried to uphold the office with dignity and acceptance of the democratic process, which he did, even if you disagree with his policies.
Finally, if the themes that are supported in this movie don't disagree with you then the scene where the "protagonist" takes 100 rounds and in his death throes still has the energy and speed to deliver 30 fatal knife wounds to as many soldiers ruins the movie. Its just so unrealistic I don't know where to begin.
That's my take on this movie.
V for Vendetta is a dramatic and powerful piece of fiction that says so much that it's a shame critics miss understood it.
P.S. Hugo Weaving, I love you man.
This isn't be the intelligent action movie we deserve- however, in how simple its message is and in how unsubtlely it conveys it, it may be the one the public needs.
