V for Vendetta (2005)

()

Coming Out at 15 March 2006 in theaters

Action, Drama, Sci-Fi

V for Vendetta is dystopian political thriller action film directed by James McTeigue and written by the Wachowskis, based on the 1988 DC/Vertigo Comics limited series of the same name by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. Set in an alternative future where a Nordic supremacist and neo-fascist totalitarian regime has subjugated the United Kingdom, the film centers on V (portrayed by Hugo Weaving), an anarchist and masked freedom fighter who attempts to ignite a revolution through elaborate terrorist acts, while Natalie Portman plays Evey, a young, working-class woman caught up in V’s mission and Stephen Rea portrays a detective leading a desperate quest to stop V.

Produced by Silver Pictures, Virtual Studios and Anarchos Productions Inc., V for Vendetta was originally scheduled for release by Warner Bros. Pictures on November 4, 2005 (a day before the 400th Guy Fawkes Night), but was delayed; it instead opened in the United States on March 17, 2006 to mostly positive reviews from critics and was a box office success. However, Alan Moore, having been dissatisfied with the film adaptations of his other works, From Hell (2001) and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003), declined to watch the film and asked to be uncredited or not be paid royalties.

In 2032, the world is in turmoil. The United Kingdom is ruled by the fascist Norsefire Party, under High Chancellor Adam Sutler.

On November 4, a vigilante in a Guy Fawkes mask, “V”, rescues Evey Hammond, an employee of state-run British Television Network, from members of the “Fingermen” secret police. They watch his demolition of the Old Bailey, accompanied by fireworks and the “1812 Overture”. Inspector Finch of Scotland Yard investigates V’s activities. V hijacks a BTN broadcast to claim responsibility for the destruction, encouraging the people of Britain to rise up against their government and meet him on next year’s Guy Fawkes Night outside the Houses of Parliament. The police attempt to capture V. Evey helps him escape, but is knocked unconscious.
