That movie was great. I went with a friend of mine and we both loved it. Not only was it a great plot but Natalie Portman... wow. Great actress and one of the most beautiful women on the planet. What's not to love?
I absolutely love that movie. It was wonderful to see the W brothers jump on a movie that is essentially what Matrix 2-3 could have been with actual plot.
The execution was pretty damn flawless, and serious respect goes out to Hugo Weaving for agreeing to do the whole part without ever taking off the mask (as well as actually carrying it off with panache ranging well into the realm of brilliance), even though it means that he will not get credit for it from 80% of what could have been his adoring public.
Natalie Portman is finally starting to look like she may be more than 18 years of age, and was quite very good in the movie, with the only blemish being the rather unnecessary british accent which she was more than a little inconsistent at.
The movie was dynamic, emotionally powerful, thought provoking and all in all
I see no reason why V for Vendetta should ever be forgot.
Wow, impressive flick!
I just saw it because of your recommendation. Girlfriend and me wanted to go to a party but it started raining. Since it was an outdoor party we didn't go and were sitting bored at home. Since there's a cinema right around the corner, we thought we'd watch a movie. V for Vendetta was on in an original screening in english (I learned to hate syncronized movies).
I've never heard of the movie before, except here (I've got no TV (by choice)). Remembering how well you folks spoke of the movie, I persuaded my gf to watch it.
And I must say, it's amazing. Flawless screenplay and Hugo Weaving was soo great under that mask. The mask itself is a masterpiece that shows every emotion the viewer should see without ever changing. Brilliant.
Thanks for the recommendarion, Citizen and all other posters after him. You made my day.
