V for Vendetta

Despite Alan Moore's seeming hatred for any adaptation of his work to the big screen, V is pretty dead-on to the original source material. This producion was produced by the Wachoski brothers after their success with the the Matrix trilogy. Hugo Weaving is spectacular as the enigmatic V who must delivery his performace without any form of facial exprexssion while in a Guy Fawkes mask. Natlie Portman is his perfect compliment in portarying the innocent and malable Evey who comes to know, understand and even love the mysterious V even though he has taken her prisoner. To push this off as another in a long list of comic book movies turned in to films, is to deny yourself a great movie going experience and a movie that delivers home a much needed warning for our troubled times.
