V For Vendetta: First Reaction
"Kurt Loder over at MTV said: 'This Movie Will Kick Your Ass', I couldn't agree more..."
V For Vendetta
First reaction by Matt Adcock
V For Vendetta is the lavish big screen adaptation (by the Wachowskis 'Matrix' Bros no less) of Alan Moore and David Lloyd's revered 1980s graphic novel.
Will post full review when it hits (17 March) but having seen it today, I can confirm that this is right up there with SIN CITY in terms of capturing the look, feel and substance of the original material.
This is a 'must see' movie which delivers thrills, drama and stylish violence - set in a near future London which is scary in that 'just might happen if we're not careful' kind of way... Portman is great (and sexy even when she's bald), and she's ably supported by Hugo Weaving (as 'V' the black cloak, peaked hat, Guy Fawkes mask wearing hero).
Fans of quality film-making, graphic novels and dark dystopian futures, get excited and book your tickets now!!
"The test audience for V For Vendetta were unanimous in their praise"
