V for Vendetta

August 3, 2006


Synopsis on the back of the DVD:

Who is the man who hides his scarred face behind a mask? Hero or madman? Liberator or oppressor? Who is V; and who will join him in his daring plot to destroy the totalitarian regime that dominates his nation?

From the creators of The Matrix trilogy comes V for Vendetta, an arresting and uncompromising vision of the future based on the powerfully subversive graphic novel. Natalie Portman stars as Evey, a working-class girl who must determine if her hero has become the very menace he’s fighting against. Hugo Weaving plays V; a bold, charismatic freedom fighter driven to exact revenge on those who disfigured him. And Stephen Rea portrays the detective leading to desperate quest to capture V before he ignites a revolution. The stakes rise. The tension electrifies. The action explodes. Whose side are you on? In V’s world, there is no middle ground.

Daanish’s review:

I absolutely loved this film! V, Hugo Weaving’s character is the story of a man who wants to change the current government of Britain. Having been tested on with chemicals and other forms of torture, V, will do anything to get people to stand up against the governement. Many people live in fear, and don’t want to face the police. There is a curfew that is enforced, and anyone caught, being out, after the curfew is punished. V doesn’t believe in the curfew, nor does Evey. Evey is Natalie Portman’s character. She comes from a family that is known to be active in protesting against the government. But she is too afraid to stand up, and belive in her rights. V helps her understand his opinion. She has to decided whether to join him, or to continue her life in fear. In V’s own words “Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.” This is one of those films you won’t forget. “Remember, remember, the fifth of November.”

Daanish’s Rating:
