Aro Recommended V for Vendetta

 

USA 2005, 132 minutes
Dir. James McTeigue
Rating: [M]
Genres: Science Fiction, Action/Adventure / Futurism

 

Aroview: Set in the year 2020, this dystopian thriller adapts Alan Moore's graphic novel about a world where deadly viruses have wiped out most of America and Britain is held in the iron grip of a totalitarian state, which in true Orwellian fashion issues fake news reports, propaganda and torture regimes for disbelievers.

As a saviour of truth, the mysterious masked 'V' (Weaving) haunts the foggy streets of London spreading his own brand of anarchy and terrorism and seemingly immune to capture, while a reporter (Portman) becomes involved with uncovering his drastic plan to revive the explosive tradition of Guy Fawkes. Scripted by the Wachowskis this presents a similar half-muddle of ideas to THE MATRIX, but also boasts a convincing visual flash and polish to match its moral pessimism.
