Based on the popular graphic novel by Alan Moore, V for Vendetta's screenplay was written by the Wachowski brothers (of The Matrix fame) and directed by their protégé, James McTeigue. Controversy and criticism followed the film since its inception, from the hyper-stylized use of anarchistic terrorism to overthrow a corrupt government and the blatant jabs at the current U.S. political arena, to graphic novel fans complaining about the reconstruction of Alan Moore's original vision (Moore himself has dismissed the film). Many are valid critiques and opinions, but there's no hiding the message the film is trying to express: Radical and drastic events often need to occur in order to shake people out of their state of indifference in order to bring about real change. Unfortunately, the movie only offers a means with no ends, and those looking for answers may find the film stylish, but a bit empty. --Rob Bracco

If you like a story that makes you think and draws parallels to the way things are in this day and age, this is a movie you will love.
The idea of a totalitarian government controlling every aspect of people's lives really makes one think of what it really means to be free.
This movie has great action sequences and the story is very good even though it differs a bit from the graphic novel which I like also.
Good movie. One of those things you see in movies hoping it never becomes a reality. Or are we more closer to a take-over than we believe?.....Published 8 days ago by UM

I remember reading somewhere that the maximum length of a review should be no longer than 1000 words. I've written 41 so far and had all of them published; I made sure that none of them broke the 1000 word mark... hope this helps.

I've found that a major problem with the modern Christian vs Atheist argument is that both sides end up presenting the other in the worst form that has been empirically observed and arguing against that formulation. When the worst form is presented and then attributed to all, most, or even a... Read More

|V is for Vomit: The Vile and Vicious Vitriol of Anti-Terror War Villians||
Would you call the French Resistance during WWII a group of terrorists? Technically, if you're going to define them purely by their actions and ignore their ideology, they would be. That's about as deep as your analysis goes. The government depicted in V can be a metaphor for where we _might_... Read More

As is clearly mentioned when one goes to write a review, it could take up to 24 hours to be posted. Therefore, to expect your review to appear "almost immediately" is ridicuous. Further, watch your review for inappropriate content. Is there any foul language or comments not suitable for... Read More
