"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition."Count the number of V's in that dialog, this movie was released in 2005 so, as far as how good this movie is, i am none to judge, many would have known it by now here's it's imdb page.It's rated 8.2/10 presently and it's listed in the top 250 movies.But why am i writing this post?, whoa! cos i was awestruck watching this movie.Revenge is one of the most powerful concept just because everyone would have got their vengeance at least once in their life, and that feeling just can't be explained and even the title of this movie title has it.
This movie start's with "Remember,remember the 5th of November" in some 17th century where a person called Guy Fawks revolts against the government and gets captured and dies by being publicly hung by the then govt but,he does not die cos "ideas don't die" and that idea is used after 400 years. People forget the importance of Nov 5 when the movie shifts from there to the future some 2040 year.In that future, people don't go out in the evening cos some curfew's have been imposed by the dictator of the U.K Adam Sutler(name rhyming with Adolf Hitler) and a women called Evey Hammond who is on the streets after late gets caught by fingermen(gestapo?),who are the police appointed by Sutler,instead of giving protection to her they try to rape her,that's when the Guy fawks masked, wearing a full sized coat with everything black and shining appears,he fights with them off with some very fancy and impressive swords work and his name is 'V' he rescues the girl with a lot of style and and tells her that fully V'ed dialog above....Why does he wear Guy Fawks mask?and what is his vendetta? watch the movie to find it.
Certain movie's quickly become your obsession and this movie is certainly one of them, and i must say i am really feeling like i am fortunate to watch this movie,it has good camera work,good story,good screenplay,good acting and i just can't see if there is anything wrong in it.Dialog's they are a very integral part of a movie and this movie starts off with a very good dialog(remember,remember the 5th of November), and maintains that quality through out the movie.More importantly it shows how future is going to be ruled by religious fanatics by banning homosexuality and killing Muslims in the name of terrorism and even having a Qu'ran in your house gets you killed and believe me in the future after say a 30 to 50 years later western world will be like that watch zeitgeist you will know what i am blabbing now.It shows how the politics are going to rule the world by removing the civil liberties.This movie has a lot of issues which are really close to my heart and it indirectly deals with atheism and nothing can beat revenge concepts and you can watch this movie just for it's dialog's.And my rating for this movie if i have any qualification to rate, is a sure shot 9.5/10. What a great movie?
