V for Vendetta Film Review

Extracts from this document...


V For Vendetta ? Great Film but C For Confusing? When I first saw the movie ?V for Vendetta? (2006 James McTeigue) I didn?t know anything about it at all. Despite the very complex and confusing story line though, it was a very enjoyable and engrossing film. This Sci-Fi Action film is set in the near future in London and is about a terrorist, V (Hugo Weaving), who with the help of his friend Evey (Natalie Portman) plans to blow up Parliament, just like his hero, Guy Fawkes. V has many similarities to Guy Fawkes, from what sets out to do and donning a Guy Fawkes mask and long, dark cape. The film is based at young adults, teenagers and those people who like action, mystery and Sci-Fi movies. V is a quite confusing character because of his antics and what he?s doing. He?s determined to bring the totalitarian government down, which links in to one of the movie?s ?slogans? ?The people shouldn?t be scared of the government, ...read more.


He takes Evey back to his hideout and shows her his demolition of the Old Bailey building. After a while, she leaves V?s hideout and rushes to Gordon?s house, her former boss at BTN. After being at Gordon?s for a while, they?re both captured and taken to prison. Evey is tortured for information about V?s whereabouts when she overcomes her fears and is released. The workers for the Chancellor (The Finger Men) play a very important role in the movie, because they spend the majority of the movie hunting down V, trying to track his movement and guess what he?s trying to do next. The Chancellor thinks their job?s a lot easier than what it is because he is very cocky. He is over confident because he has the whole country at his feet, because he is the head of a totalitarian government that has complete control. When the 5th of November is just around the corner V sends thousands of Guy Fawkes mask to the public for them to join him in his attempt to blow up the Big Ben and Parliament. ...read more.


The event gets the government on their toes because the government has control over everything, and isn?t used to something going wrong. It is also important in shaping the audiences interest because it is at the very start of the movie. It would get a lot of the audience wanting to watch more of the film because it gets the audience thinking, ?It can only get better? In conclusion, it was a very good movie; I would recommended anybody in-between 12 and 25 to see it, and the majority of males and people who like explosions and action, mystery or sci-fi movies. The main weakness that the movie has is that its story line will be very confusing for most. This movie taught me a lot about Guy Fawkes and what he did. It will do the same for most people because Guy Fawkes isn?t really that well known out of England. Rating Likes out of 5. Would have got 5 Likes if it wasn?t so confusing Rating Chart - Terrible - Patchy - Worth A Look - Very Good - Cant Miss It ...read more.
