Movie Review: V for Vendetta

Sunday, June 04, 2006
We went to see the movie V for Vendetta over the weekend at the Kennedy School. What a fantastic film!

Step back for a moment and remember Guy Fawkes, the British revolutionary who attempted to assassinate King James by blowing up the House of Parliament. The movie is about a man who wears a Guy Fawkes mask and, 400 years later, is attempting to overthrow a neo-fascist British government. With strict pro-democracy overtones and a not-too-subtle comparison to current government figures, this movie is incredible to watch and definitely stirs conversation in its wake.

One of the most remarkable things about the movie is that the main character, "V" (played by Hugo Weaving), wears a mask the entire time - and yet the actor is able to portray an incredible amount using only words and body language. Also of note is the camerawork, the direction, the writing... well, pretty much everything about the movie was [insert synonym for fantastic here].

Final word on V for Vendetta: You must see this film, at all costs.

watched V for Vendetta recently, loved it. eye-candy effects, amazing how much character they developed into a mask, then again, maybe he was more than a mask...
