Plot: the movie takes place in Britain, in a time when corruption and no freedoms and liberties exist. A corrupt and abusive totalitarian government has risen to complete power, headed by a chancellor whose rise to power is questionable. During a threatening run in with the secret police, an unassuming young woman named Evey is rescued by a vigilante. V embodies the principles of rebellion from an authoritarian state, donning a mask of vilified would-be terrorist of British history Guy Fawkes and leading a revolution sparked by assassination and destruction. Evey becomes his unlikely ally, newly aware of the cruelty of her own society and her role in it.
Verdict: Another great movie by the Wachowksi Brothers based on a novel by Alan Moore. Visually stunning and thought-provoking, V for Vendetta's political pronouncements may rile some, but its story and impressive set pieces will nevertheless entertain.
