Remember remember...V for Vendetta

Movie Review: V for Vendetta
Starring: Natalie Portman as Evey Hammond, Hugo Weaving as V, Stephen Rea as Inspector Finch and John Hurt as Chancellor Sutler.
Directed by: James McTeigue
Based on Graphic Novel V for Vendetta by Allan Moore.
Music from the Motion Picture: V for Vendetta.

A tantalizingly subversive tale set in futuristic London where a totalitarian government has replaced religion and controls society through fear, all except one misfigured person disguised in a Guy Fawkes Day costume and known only as V.

As the plot unravels the story thickens. Audiences will be kept mesmerized through the connections between characters and events, amazing editing and cinematography.

This film takes a look at the government's role in society and what it should be, discussing issues of freedom, discrimination, terrorism, love, friendship strength and weakness.

It is however anything but political jargon and dogma, but an action packed psychological drama as V enacts his vendetta.

A word of warning, this film is NOT suitable for viewers under 15 years of age (rating MA) as it contains moderate sexual references and strong violence.

You might like this if you also like: action/mystery/romance/great cinematography and editing/are politically minded

A good place to enjoy this is: With a group of people who will want to talk about it later!

Rating: Fantastic
Thanks to Riannon (aged 18).
