V for Vendetta - WOW! - MtnVwPilot

Mar. 24th, 2006 07:41 am V for Vendetta - WOW!

I saw V for Vendetta yesterday; best film I've seen in a year or so. Kinda bloody (but what do you expect from a screeplay by the Wachowski Brothers?), and very politically timely... "People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people." Great movie!

Not by the "W" brothers

That movie is based on a graphic nov...fuck it, a comic book. I have actually read it (my GF has a copy) and the movie was actually a reasonbly literal transplant of the story and the visuals from the book.

FWIW, YMMV, HTH, CUL

I know, but they got screenplay credit. So, I guess they get credit for not screwing it up in the translation from print to film. ;-)

Actually, Alan Moore asked to have his name removed from the film, but apparently that's his habit.

Incidentally, I thought the movie *rocked*. My comment to Ted (after the awed silence phase) was "Damn, that kicked ass." I've never been this tempted to pre-order a DVD. Not that I won't be able to purchase it all over town the day it comes out... I just kind of want to strike while the iron is hot :-)
