That´s how the revolution should be done!
That would require some creative camera lingering, and sets that didn't look like sound stages. If this had been made 15 years ago -- as a mini-series -- perhaps some of the gritty integrity and enduring strength of the human spirit might have been retained.
Nowhere in this superficial yawnfest is the true understanding of revolution made manifest. Nowhere is the audience truly brought in to and made a part of V's tormented motivations or Evey's harrowing journey.
The screen story was already written, and the filmmakers ignored it, rewriting whole scenes, cutting out others, eliminating a good 75% of the story's power, meaning and resonance. The characters are shallow, empty husks of their original selves, and the pacing is abominable.
If you enjoyed Alan Moore and David Lloyd's graphic novel from 1988 -- as I did -- do yourself a favor and avoid this pale rendition. Alan Moore has disassociated himself from this film, and with good reason. A few of the character names are the same, and a couple of sequences bear a slight resemblance -- but that's it. The fire, the passion, the heart and soul that so infused the novel is completely absent.
This is a movie that I can enjoy once a year. Visually amazing. love the casting. If you've never seen, you must watch it at least once.
better than the usual movies made. would recommend to anyone.
My favourite movie of all time. Love how V thinks and blows stuff up to make a point. Very dope movie. And no one can kill or give a killer death treat to 1812 overture better than V.
although the hero was masked all the time, he succeeded in giveing the feelings, attitudes, emotions that at the end of the movie one can cry on his death. also the heroen has a craftsmanship in her facial expressions in the transformation of her character from weekness into strenght. well done... realy well done.
All I can say is that I fell in love with Hugo Weaving in this movie, too!!! I watch it over and over again. What a great movie!!
