Review: V for Vendetta



Presentation:

The movie V for Vendetta was recommended for me by many of my friends, and they described it by one words: Badass. But does it deserve this description?


Story:

In the 1980s, a world war, Europe, Africa and the United States of America is reduced to ashes by nuclear weapons. Britain was spared by the bombings but not by thechaos and flooding resulting from climate change. English society in this post-apocalyptic, a fascist party, Norsefire, took over power and tries to restore the countryafter carrying out ethnic cleansing, political and social without mercy.In 1997, when the party seems to have the situation under control, an anarchist began a campaign to undermine all the symbols of power. This anarchist who calls himself "V"wears a mask representing the face of Guy Fawkes, the most famous member of theGunpowder Plot. In his first brilliant action, blasting the Palace of Westminster, Vrescues Evey, a young girl of 16 who might be raped and executed for prostitution.


Drawing:

The drawing is good, not very , but it suits the post apocalyptic environment. And it's also cool to see another version of this world where it is not only desert wastelands. "V" is captured beautifully and is very charismatic as a character and the costume helps a lot in bringing that badass look.

Verdict: I give it a [7.5/10] the story had a lot of long conversations and I was hoping to see a lot more action.My expectation did influence the score, but if you are looking for a solid story you will not find anything better.

That was a very good review. If you had to pick between the movie and the comic book...which one would you say you enjoyed the most?

As a huge Alan Moore fanboy, I will refrain from picking apart your review and showing how it's at LEAST a 11 out of 10...7.5pffft!
TOO MUCH DIALOG!?!?! Did you even read the dialog? most of it is gold!!! AHHH!!

Good review, We had the same opinion towards this comic. The long talk kinda kills it sometimes.

@Timothy Bowen: I am sorry. I did read the dialogues they were good but as you can read i didn't say they were bad. i just thought there weren't enough action.

I almost completely agree with you on this review. The comic was alright but not as great as all the hype made it sound. Followed.
