Its been quite a while since I saw a good english movie. Infact, I think I have been complaining about the lack of good movies for the past couple of months. So V for Vendetta was a welcome change. If you haven’t seen it already, watch it today!

V for Vendetta is the story of a masked vigilante, not surprisingly known as V. The movie is set in not so far future, where Britain is under the totalitarian rule of a dictator. V, whose identity remains largely unknown till the end of the movie, wants to change things. But he has a certain way of doing things — he can be stylish at times, and sick at other times. V leaves the audience confused — whether to root for the victimized hero, or to revolt against the crazy, psycopath terrorist.

It was good to see the Wachowski brother’s back in action, and I was actually glad that the movie didn’t overdo the special affects, nor rely on them to push the movie through. Natalie Portman has done a good job with her character. Its a little weird to watch the hero wearing a mask during the entire movie, but by the end you get used to it. And pay attention to what V says — some of the dialogues are pretty amazing. I loved his introductory sequence — a delightful alliteration of V-words.

Highly recommended!

    From your post, I am getting the impression that you could actually understand what the movie was all about. Wow!! Humse to total miss :)

    the movie is definitely very good – one of the best this year. But, i would still say that the book is better – if you noticed, the creative genius behind the book – Alan Moore- was not even credited in the movie. He refused to accept any credit because of the way the story was changed for the movie . I agree, although only partially :D. I cna lend you the book if you want – its far darker than the movie and far more potent in its message.

    *@kiran*: really? I believe I saw his name somewhere in the movie. Anyways, I doubt if its better than “The Watchmen”, but yeah, I’ll grab the book from you in a couple of days. Thanks!

    DUDES!!! the movie totally rocked..i even got the dialogue frm it..here it is..watch out..!!

    V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis-à-vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V!

    Evey: Are you like a crazy person?
