When "V" rescues a young woman from the secret police, he finds in her an ally with whom he can continue his fight to free the people of Britain.

V for Vendetta was awful, just awful. I don’t think its author, Alan Moore, will ever have a truly great movie made out of his work, which may not be good in my view, but are full of interesting ideas. Maybe that’s why the guy has cut ties with anyone in Hollywood wanted to use his work for movies. This film was just another piece of Hollywood garbage that made the villains both Christian and Conservatives, granted that’s what Moore did, but come on guys, pull a Luc Besson and maybe show a different type of villain. Of course, this aspect of the film tainted my viewing of it, as it hits you right away with blaming the United States with the evils of the world starting with Bush’s war in Iraq. I’m not even sure I would have really liked it if it didn’t have that. Nothing new with the action, it is just another carbon copy of the Matrix look (not surprising as it was directed by Wachowski brothers protégée James McTeigue). With all the hype and action, it is a rather boring movie.
