Has anyone seen this? I just watched it tonight and it's got to be my film of the year.
i can never decide whether to watch this cos half of the people say its shit and half say it amazing
it's a political thriller in the words of Stephen Fry.
if you have an emotional bone in your body then you'll love it.
- when the kid said "bollocks" at the tv.. it would never happen
- when the soldiers didn`t shoot, they would have
- when all the chavs in the pub started thinking.. it wouldn`t have happend
apart from those things I liked it.
If the above seem vague, it is so it doesn`t spoil the storyline for people who haven`t seen it.
the plot was blatantly unrealistic and they didn`t bother changing it
it sort of dragged the story down with it
liked it a lot. Very good.
is why was V deemed 'undesirable' to be put in the concentration camp?
KILL YOURSELVES SCUM
my boss was in On Her Majesty's Secret Service as a random swiss extra.
but you'll find most people on here seem to consider it utterly shit.
I guess they read the comic because it's not meant to be much like that.
At least not very bad.
Not very interesting either...
it's completely moving and absorbing. Comic books are for kids, what kind of normal adult reads comics anyway?
who want to be normal ?
I thought no one else liked it! Shit I should've asked for that for christmas!
but I just decided to watch it last night, I'm thinking of keeping it for myself now. What do you think V's true identity was?
rates it as the 116th greatest film of all time ever.
But what do they know...
alan moore = a genius
Film of the year ?
of Fabian militancy. If there ever was!
Long live welfare capitalism! bah!
I was laughing most of the way through it. I dont find V "herioc" at all and the end sequence was ridiculous.
made into a film?
it was an alternate reality where Labour won the elction in 1979 so the Tories take power by force.
The film is unforgivalbe by reducign the politics to some shitty simplistic americanised democrat demonisation of repupublicans.
So the government is reduced to look liek a republican nightmare that is ultra religious, auhtoritarian etc. all the thigns people hate aboutthe american right. And everything that the British right was not, which is more disturbing and what made the comic such a great work
that uses V For Vendetta as the basis for a computer programme. The programme creates an xml file that, when manipulated via C++ code, can extract images and dialogue from the comic.
true emotion. This film displays, you won't find a more moving scene than 'Valerie's letter'
by that scene in spiceworld where hugh laurie farts, or something.
