It may be one of the best story's ever told. If you dont see the similarities in that movie compared to our world then I dont know what to say to you.


I really liked how they tied in modern events to what was taking place in the movie. Kinda makes you look at so called "terrorism" in a different way.

I would not really compare it to Terrorism. Other than killing the people that directly hurt him “V” did not go around killing innocent people he only wanted to destroy symbols of the government that oppressed the country to empower the people to take action. I do think it resembled are own revolution against Great Britain more so than it does to what is going on now. As for the way that the government gained power, it was in a lot of way how Hitler gained power of Germany. Remember that the graphic novel in which this movie was based on was written I believe in 89’. But that’s just the way that I see it. But I did love the movie and want to see it again.

honestly i really liked the fact that the violence wasnt overdone at all. theres too many movies nowadays that rely solely on tons of "blood and gore" to sell, and im my opinion thats really ghey. "V" kicked as much ass as it did because it had a very "real" and very good story, with some good acting and good action in there too.

its a movie about an IDEA, not about blowing shlt up, and its a great movie.

My work took us all to see it on Friday.

I liked it, and not just because I was getting paid to see it.

i don't think you really can compair terrorism today and the "terrorism" in the movie.

in the movie he was lashing out at the government of his own country by destroying key symbols of their power and slowly, yet methodically, killing the people who'd wronged him, not attacking innocent people of another.

also, the only reason he was a "terrorist" was because the government spun the story to make him look like one. on the otherside of things, a terrorist to someone is a hero to another.

in all honestly though, i think the movie is open pretty widely for interpretation of the person watching.

all in all, it was a good movie.

the creators of the matrix and now this are like the modern day (setting wise) george lucas....'s. brilliant.

http://www.thebookofdays.com/months/nov/5.htm this is one reason that V was lashing out against the english government, it was a forgotten day in british history.

this is the poem from the start

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...

maeyektx, mergeleft3, when pirate said that i think he was talking about how the government let the virus out on the people, not "V" being hte terrorist.
