100 Word Review – V For Vendetta (2005)

It is a dark dystopian night, in a future London when Evey Hammond (Natalie Portman) first meets V (Hugo Weaving). Dressed in a long black cape and wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, V is vaudevillian, a visage, a vigilante intent on shining a light on a villainous workings of the British government and burning its totalitarian walls to the ground.

Based on the iconic graphic novel written by Alan Moore and illustrated by David Lloyd, this Wachowski Brothers’ adaptation currently sits at #146 of IMDb’s Top 250. As a film it stands alone as the perfect way to spend a November evening.
