From the pages of David Lloyd and Alan Moore’s groundbreaking graphic novel springs the enigmatic “V” (Hugo Weaving), a masked freedom fighter who’s taken up arms against the totalitarian government in a futuristic Britain. Finding an unlikely ally in a young woman named Evey Hammond (Natalie Portman), V urges the citizenry to fight the oppression of the state.
Director: James McTeigue
STC Genre: Superhero (fantasy) – according to Blake himself. I personally lean towards Rites of Passage – I guess it depends on who do you consider the main hero, V or Evey. And for that matter, Evey changes a lot more than V.
A really well done movie. What else can I say? Powerful, timely, impactful.
Remember, remember the leaks of December the fifth of November…
