The Fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot
I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
Set sometime in the future, V for Vendetta tells a story of totalitarian Britain. Based on the Vertigo/DC Comic book of the same name co-written by reknowned writer Alan Moore and illustrated by David Lloyd, V for Vendetta boasts of screenplay by the people who brought you the fantastic Matrix trilogy – the Wachowski brothers.
You can find the sypnosis and detailed info including video and the ‘making-off’ footage on the official Warner Bros site.
I just caught it at GSC Mid Valley. All I can say is that it is worthy of ‘Movie of The Year’ and it has just displaced The Matrix as my favourite movie of all time. It’s brilliant, I tell you. Under-rated Descent surprised and intrigued me this year, but V for Vendetta starring Hugo ‘Agent Smith’ Weaving and a very yummilicious Natalie Portman (she looks stunning bald!) was downright engaging and awe-inspiring. Hugo and Natalie were brilliant, along with the star-studded cast. Top class story-telling and the dialogue was intelligent, inspiring and powerful.
I rate this a triple V – Vivacious, Vociferous, Valorous!
Please go watch it. Please do.
