    Anyone else see this movie? I can't decide whether I like it or not. It was certainly different! Had plenty of visuals, especially if you see it on a huge IMAX screen like I did at the Sony Metreon theater.

    I find it hard to believe that E.V. (the main character) didn't know she was locked up by the masked guy during the whole time (spoiler in white text). I mean, come on!

    At the end, where the building gets blown up by the train, I would have thought the huge crowds of masked protestors would get hurt by all the explosions! Weren't all those people right up against the building??

    The movie seems to be an elaborate story to protest the US invasion of Iraq, and one scene in the movie directly implies this. I guess they had to have the setting of the movie based in the U.K, since folks in the U.S. would find it pretty impossible to consider living under Martial Law.

    I'm sure there were plenty of other hidden messages contained in the movie, but it all escapes me right now.

    Just my .02 cents worth of comments.

    You probably want to mention in the heading that this post contains plot spoilers.

    Thanks

    I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

    Casey, if I remember your King Kong thread correctly, you have difficulty suspending disbelief...that's going to make it hard for you to enjoy any theatrical production - movie, play, music video...

    If you'd like to know more about the source material for the movie, read this:

    Actually, the original graphic novel was written by Alan Moore in the mid-80s as a response to Margaret Thatcher's England. Inthe movie they made use of the war in Iraq as background, but the story was largely unchanged. Any parallels you see between V's England and George W Bush's America are entirely your own.

    Now stop thinking for yourself before the NSA catches you.

    While the story line of the movie is timely and somewhat relevent to many issues today, "V for Vendetta" pre-dates the current administration, the attacks of Sept. 11th and both Iraq wars. Original story concept dates back to 1981 and has always taken place in the UK.

    Sorry for spoiling the movie...I shoulda known better! I realized after posting that it's a new movie, and most probably haven't seen it yet! Whoops!

    The movie was entertaining for sure. Not necessarily something I would want to see again as a re-run, but like I said before, it has good visuals and enough action to satisfy most people.
