The A To Z Blogger Challenge: Day 22 - V Is For V for Vendetta


V... V can only be for one thing... V is for Vendetta!!!!! Remember, Remember, The 5th of November.... Alan Moore & David Lloyd's classic graphic novel got a pretty great film version courtesy of the Wachowski  Brothers, and I can't possibly have enjoyed it any more. So well done, so perfect. Hugo Weaving, Stephen Fry and Stephen Rea bring us the British angle of the story, and I think the star of the movie has to be Natalie Portman as Evey. She is amazingly vulnerable, and eventually comes back stronger than ever due to the help that the main mystery man V gives her. I had the opportunity to meet David Lloyd last year and asked him what he thought of the film version of his comic that he drew, and he said he loved it as well. We all know that Alan Moore hates every type of adaption of his literary work... but if it gets a co-sign from one of it's creators (and its not the crazy one!!!) than it is good enough for me. I have always loved Natalie Portman, and after this movie I will always have a soft spot for her. So she is the obvious choice for the Letter V... because she is V.

  1. I never understood why Moore hated this version. It hits all the points he was trying to make while making an exciting movie.
