Based on the graphic novel of the same title V For Vendetta takes place in a dystopian society. At some points this movie is truly amazing and does justice to the graphic novel, but at others I really feel like it falls short. This film is in that gray zone of liking the film but at the same time not loving it. I feel that this has nothing to do with acting, nor the cinematography of the film, more over that the flow in the plot felt off. This film at points struggles to keep the viewer interested where as the graphic novel can go into much more depth. I would never try to stop someone from seeing this film in fact I’d recommend it, but probably not my first pick for action/sci-fi movie.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
The entire idea of the film is a dystopian society tried a terrible experiment on a man and now he is out for revenge. While this is all good and well he begins tor blur the lines of what is right and wrong, such as putting Natalie Portman in to a room and breaking her down mentally and rebuilding her. This film is a good alternate history film it just is weird and pushes the boundaries of right and wrong throughout the film.
