The Original V For Vendetta Speech (Graphic Novel)
The speech from the film adaptation of the V for Vendetta graphic novel written by Alan Moore has been widely posted on ATS and I'm sure many are
familiar with it. It's a good speech and along with the entire film makes you think about the world and soceity we are living in today.
However, below is the original speech from the graphic novel. It's different to the one in the film and I feel is far better and a lot deeper. It's
a great metaphor and the graphic novel as a whole is well worth a read!
Please note that I got the screenshots of the graphic novel from this link:
Here is the speech from the film version. Both the graphic novel and film are good in their own ways. I love the film (hence my avatar) and read the
graphic novel after seeing the film, but I have an appreciation for both.
For those who have seen the film or read the graphic novel, which speech do you think is better? I know the author Alan Moore never wanted anything to
do with the film as he often feels his work isn't given the treatment it deserves when being put up on the big screen.
Personally I prefer the film version - it's more concise. I saw the film first and likewise bought the comic book afterwards. I thought the film was
much better, not that the comic book wasn't worthwhile, just that the film was classic.
He does indeed put it very well. I have always felt that there was no "Grand master plan". Rather there is a LOT of grand master plans by various
groups and sub groups and minions and ultimately, it ends up in a giant chaotic cluster of activites that gets worse and worse over time.
Occasionally someone succeeds in detonating the explosive mixture of scrambled intentions and we all get to start over in a way.
I watched V for vendetta for the first time the other day and in view of the fact its a few years old I couldnt help but see how prophetic it was in
view of the current police state in the UK. But then, isnt the UK (and their monarchy) the place that the major push is coming from for the NWO?
