V for Vendetta Review
“People Shouldn't Be Afraid Of Their Goverments, Goverments Should Be Afraid Of The People.”
February 20th, 2008
this is one of my all time favourites. rumour has it that upon it's release the government tried to have it censured. after watching it for the first time i can see why. not to get on my political bandwagon but what a poke in the eye for the do-gooder's & appeasers of this world. awsome performances from the leads. it must have been hell for hugo weaving to have to rely on his voice, (splendid though it is), & his body language. didn't know that so many words with the capitol letter V can be used together, must have taken a while to remember all of them for his first lines on the screen.
Natalie portman is great in anything she does. seen her loads of times & she could do an advert for toilet roll & make it seem like a shakesperean tragedy. but most of all,like my profile states, i am in awe of the lone voice of reason striking against the seemingly unstoppable forces of beurocracy & injustice. great british use of languadge & history to creat a vigalante of such believable passion for vengance. i get goosebumps when watching it & the finale allways leaves a tear trail down my cheek. he's my brother, my mother, he's you, he's everyone.
