This movie was just... Wow! It makes a HUGE statement on the American and British governments today, and would fit perfectly in with the conspiracy theory theme of ATS.

It opens today (I saw a sneak-preview screening of it last night) so go see it!

My friends and I may go see it over the weekend. Possibly today. I'm looking forward to seeing it. I'll let you know what I thought once we see it.

Just saw it on the first night of showing (last night). It just blew me away. I'll leave it at that.

Not a fan of the comics, so I dont know how well it goes along with the original story line. I had read somewhere that the guy who wrote the comics didnt think the movie was very true to his word. Who knows, but its still a good story on its own.

I was excited to see John Hurt play the role of the totalitarian leader; since Hurt played the victim of "Big Brother" in the movie version of Nineteen Eighty Four. Natalie Portman looked especially good in this movie. She even somehow remained attractive with a shaved head. Huge Weaving played V, although you never see his face, so I guess it coulda been his voice only, but I think it was him the whole time. Anyways he had some tricky lines I could never do. V has a masterful command over the english language, which was a tad hard to get used to. It just takes longer to register what he says when he uses words that I havent heard outside of Shakespear. Plus the movie is centered in Britain, so prepare for british accents.

It was a movie with a point. Even if you think a masked hero who uses knives instead of guns it a little strange, you will still see the underlying moral to this story. "V," was not supposed to be America or Britain or Russia or China, it was a basic outline for a socialist police state, an oligarchy in which we may find ourselves one day.

As a fan of dystopian movies, I liked it.

I just hope this film hasn't been "over-hyped". Then again, a chance to see a skin-headed Natalie Portman is almost too good to resist. I really wonder if this won't be too much like Batman, though, albeit with swords and knives replacing the gadgets.

Another superhero, behind a mask, waahoooo!

I was watching CNN the other night and they gave the movie a bad rap because they said that it glorified terrorism
. I laughed when they said that. The trailers for the movie looked great and can't wait to see it.

The movie does NOT glorify terrorism...

My girlfriend and I went to see it last night, in the beginning much to her chagrin, but once the movie was over she was cheering right along with the rest of the theater.

I'd definitely put this movie in my personal top ten best films I've ever seen. Un-freakin'-believable!!


I kind of hope they don't make any sequels because this movie really needs to stand on it's own.

Peace

I saw the movie opening day. At the end most of the peeps in the theatre were applauding. It was great. I can hardly wait for it to come out on DVD.

Personally, I love the movie. I've never read the graphic novel, and I believe I read somewhere that Alan Moore (writer of the original) took his name off the project because it took his version of the world (Margaret Thatcher-esque) and created a modern, neo-facist state of our worst nightmares. Personally, I don't see the problem, but I can understand creative differences. This is certainly a movie for our times delivered in great flow and fashion. I know I got goosebumps and a vindictive shudder of joy in the last scene


The one complaint I have about the movie is Evey's last speech. I think (In all of my expertise :clown
would have been better without speech. The way it was, it felt like being spoonfed the morals, analogies, and metaphors which had been presented so far. And for those who were mad about not seeing V's face....

(I'm pretty sure he was the guy who came out of the fire looking like this:
. Don't take my word for it, it's very subtle!)

I saw V for Vendetta(2006) today. It was definitely cool. I think that V (Hugo Weaving) is a fascinating character because you never can decide whether his motives were for revenge or for justice. There is always a slight tipping of the scales between the two. And Evey (Natalie Portman) plays the deciding factor.

It does give you chills when you think about the "slippery slope" of creating a society based on falsified safety.

One man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter.

But it's good that this movie has generated debate, more people will be inclined to watch it.

I really enjoyed V for Vendetta. I'd like to watch it again when it comes out on DVD. There is a cool website on the movie. Oh, and I love Natalie with her shaved head, yum.

You're right, though only Fascists would think that this movie glorifies terrorism as the government V is trying to bring down is a Fascist dictatorship.

Awesome movie btw. Every ATSer should go and see this movie on the big big screen(IMAX) asap!

I loved that movie. Films have been pretty lackluster for the last year or so, and it was good to finally see one that lived up to the hype. Hugo Weaving definately impressed me...maybe he should cover up his face in all his future roles.
I loved the message of the film and I think the future it depicts could very well happen in either Britain or the USA.

Some of the people in this thread should go see that film eh?

I haven't seen the film, but the graphic novel of the same name brought out the above response in me.

I would not hesitate for a second to recommend it to anyone.
