Format: Hardcover
(from an extended feature, copyright 2006 Michael F. Hopkins)

Few literary masterworks offer more narrative wonder,

and more frustration to adapt to the silver screen,

than the socioculturally-charged V FOR VENDETTA by

writer Alan Moore and illustrator David Lloyd. Its

mix of Fascist horror, Romantic adventure, and

Science Fiction contemplation, has thrilled readers

of Sequential literature and a world of enthusiasts

for over 20 years.

The questions posed by its pages, particularly the

point at which Terrorism becomes the State, or the

crucible in which Dissent can be compelled to fashion

the tools of Rebellion from the State's own Terror,

still await finer resolutions in the trouble-torn

world of the Here and Now.

As ambivalent as the tones of a William Blake painting,

V FOR VENDETTA strikes as aggressively for the souls

and minds of thinking, caring people who refuse to

settle for any quick emotion, and easy answer.

These are the focused aims superbly met by the wondrous

film from the shapers of THE MATRIX Trilogy. Larry and

Andy Wachowski spent many years forging their prodigious

script, and director James McTeigue brings the momentous

tale to stunning life.

Not a word-for-word adaptation of what is perhaps Alan

Moore's signature work, the film masterfully embraces

Moore's questing spirit; holding true to the original

author's vision while imbuing the film with a life and

character all its own.

Has the full shooting script. Lots of behind the scenes stuff.

THICK, glossy pages (the kind you sort of get a high from, from such heavy gloss fumes).

Wonderful artwork from the film!!!! Mock movie posters and the print posters. All very nice.

A must have if you're a fan of the film!

Great book containing the shooting script with director's notes and hundreds of stills. The last third of the book contains artwork and storyboards and how they were transformed into film, complete with explaining notes by the film's makers. Poster gallery and credits included. All color photos and artwork, high quality print, great book on this great film!

If you're a V and Evey nut like I am, you should grab a copy of this coffee tabler. There are awesome photos and it's fun to see the additions and deletions of the author. Most fun for me was that as I read the script, I could see, perfectly all the scenes that I was reading, almost like watching the film again as I read. Super fun. It's of excellent quality. I'm not sure, but it even appears to have a sewn-in binding. This is one that will always stay in my library for a nice rainy day. Ah...mademoiselle...would like a cup of tea with your egg?

Having loved this underappreciated film, I found this wonderfully writen and developed book to be a perfect follow-up. The side notes on the script gave depth to the story and to the character of V, while the extremenly detailed descriptions of the technology used, right down to the weight of the cape and choice of mask colors, would please any theater or film buff. Great shots taken during the filming are a bonus. If you loved the movie, get this book while you still can!

This book is a real treasure if you are enamored with the film! When you just can't get enough, it gives you a play by play of the whole script, side notes, and facts about scenes and the making of them. The pages are wonderful along with the pictures. I would highly recommend this collectable book for true V fanatics at heart!

I have become a fan of V for Vendetta since I watched the movie. I always feel that it has a unique storyline and style of direction. I came across this book while browsing for V for Vendetta books that I thought may have been available. Initially, I was on the fence about buying this as I knew that the book contains the whole film script, the kind of book that I have never read or had before. Then, I read all the other reviews and eventually decided ta make a blindbuy. I am very glad that I have made the right decision. FYI, I got the last new copy from Amazon, out of the last 4 copies left!

The book is divided into 3 major sections: Shooting Script (pg. 9-168): the complete film script peppered with the director's handwritten annotations. Each page of the script has one to three screenshots at the bottom of it, which correspond to the specific scene being described. The second part is devoted to Art for the Film (pg. 169-251) which displays behind-the-scenes stills with the director's comments for ALL the major scenes in the film. Not only that, you also find storyboard-to-scene comparisons, and various theatrical posters, released and unreleased. The third part is dedicated to the Film Credits (252-255) - a list of all the cast and crew who were involved.

The book I got is the paperback edition. The thickness of the cover is similar to that of a postcard and has a laminated glossy texture and the pages themselves are printed on a 120-gram quality paper that you often find used for high quality brochures, which makes the book special.

In short, V for Vendetta: From Script To Screen is a must-have for fans of the film. If you still can get a copy of it elsewhere, don't miss the chance to grab one. Happy reading.
