Tremendous action sequences, strong acting from Christian Bale and Emily Watson and a very interesting plot. I dare say, I liked it almost as much as I liked the Matrix when I first saw it back in '99. I'm sure with more viewing, I'll end up liking it even more. It's a bit slow in some parts, but the action scenes sparkle. I'm sure my rating will climb after a second viewing, but I'd give it an 8/10
I really like that movie. I think I reviewed it earlier.
There's a few things in V for Vendetta that reminded me of Equilibrium...like the underground preservation of art/classical music, the figurehead on tv monitors, the entire dystopian society, brainwashing, etc. Obviously, they both remind me of 1984...but I like them all.
If you liked Equilibrium, you should like V for Vendetta.
Off-Topic: Did anyone see the trailer for Silent Hill
before V for Vendetta? That movie looks f'ed up! I know it's based on the videogames, but I haven't played them...so I'm in the dark. Can't wait to see that...and Mission Impossible III.
