Movie Review by hannah jack
October 24th, 2007

Originally written for my Dad!

I know what you're thinking already: what kind of a name is V For Vendetta? Talk about stating the obvious! But seriously, the film is a lot better than it's juvenile title initially suggests. Centered around a masked, slightly weird freedom fighter vigilante fortunately named 'V', the film, (I think, it wasn't the most simplistic of plots), is about the bringing down of a totalitarian and fascist futuristic Britain, in which Evey, who V rescues from the secret police, becomes an unlikely ally in a plot to terrorise government buildings in order to bring about justice (I know.)

Throughout the film V sports what I've read is a Guy Fawkes mask, and seeing as all the terrorism happens on 5th November it makes sense. Nonetheless, my main enjoyment was derived from the fact that the painted mouth of the mask remained in a static kind of hellish smile no matter what emotion V was expressing. Even when he was crying he had a wide grin and perhaps what was meant to be some symbolic mirroring of emotion instead caused me to stifle laughter when I first saw V For Vendetta at the cinema.

However, I came out of the room thinking 'wow', and that's always a good sign. The film is dark and gothic and really interesting to watch, even if you don't really care about politics and stuff.
