Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 03/23/2006
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The explosive V FOR VENDETTA is powered by ideas that are not computer-generated. It's something rare in Teflon Hollywood: a movie that sticks with you."
Uncut - 04/01/2006
"[M]any of Moore's concerns remain intact....It shares the stylistic panache of the MATRIX movies..."
Premiere - 04/01/2006
4 stars out of 4 -- "[A] compelling, rousing and at times strangely moving entertainment."
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2006
"As the revolutionary V, Weaving is mostly marvelous..."
USA Today - 03/17/2006
"This dark and stylized movie is visually exhilarating, provocative and disturbing. Set in a slightly futuristic world, V FOR VENDETTA is an action thriller that also stimulates thought."
Total Film - 08/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he best adaptation of an Alan Moore graphic novel yet to hit the screen..."
Ultimate DVD - 08/01/2006
5 stars out of 5 -- "A bravura action romp with all the flair you might expect from a film produced by Matrix creators the Wachowski brothers....Excellent."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/04/2006
"[T]his grandiose popcorn movie is slathered with ideas, theories, and intricate proclamations about he nature of freedom, government, and individual will..." -- Grade: B+

Description by OLDIES.com:

V FOR VENDETTA: From DC comics and the Wachowski Brothers (THE MATRIX) comes this tale of revolution in an England of the future, one gone fearful and fascist; anyone different, from homosexuals to free thinking artists, is "black bagged" and subjected to torture and inhumane medical experiments. Hugo Weaving stars as V, the mysterious knife-carrying masked avenger who has lightning reflexes, lots of explosives, and intentions to blow up Parliament. He's also on a vendetta against the evil powermongers who made him the lonely monster he is. Natalie Portman is the innocent waif who saves him and winds up hiding out in his nifty secret lair, which is filled with forbidden books, art, and a jukebox that plays Cat Power and Julie London's "Cry Me a River." Meanwhile, there's a hangdog police inspector (Stephen Rea) picking up their trail, and a plethora of evil British government types regularly bullied into action by the intensely odious "Grand Chancellor" (John Hurt). Director James McTiegue keeps all these events unfolding at a hypnotically rhythmic pace, like the burning of a long, unstoppable fuse. Some may balk at the film's seemingly pro-explosive, pro-terrorist stance, but to look deeper is to realize the film merely provides a funhouse mirror of our actual messed-up world, something that is true of all the best science fiction. V certainly fits that category, especially with Natalie Portman in the lead, as lovely and riveting an actress as a beleaguered nation could ever hope for.
