My Review:
Having not seen V for Vendetta for years I could not resist watching this after so long especially after forgetting just how good the movie is and how it is definitely a film in which everyone should see at least once!

The film is about a man called V who wants to give England some hope by using what Guy Fawkes was famous for in 1605 in trying to blow up the houses of parliament. For this, he tells the public that  in one years time this will happen which lets the people of England get behind him and show that they are all needing the hope from V! As well as this happening V starts to get revenge on people who hurt him in the past while the police are trying to find out what happened as well as why V is killing them off one by one. Will the police find out what happened to V and stop him before the 5th of November?

I find that this film is unique and one that stays with you after having watched it which is a reason that this film is such a good watch. This film shows that even though it is in the future and a sci-fi movie there are people out there who are fighting for our hope as a country and showing that you don't have to live in fear which the government is wanting. Personally I like that in this movie you do find out about why V is going after those who have wronged him in the past and how this has effected why he is wanting to give England hope that is outwith the government and that the people need more than just a dictator. With the movie also showing a woman who is scared of everything we are able to see how her character develops from being scared and not feeling like she is safe being outside of her house after curfew to being not scared of anything, including death itself.

I would highly recommend this movie to those who are wanting a sci-fi movie that has a lot of action and will give you hope that things could get better. This is a film I feel everyone should see at least once and has a great story an gives a great understanding as to why the character is wanting vengeance as well as wanting to give hope to a whole country!

My Rating: 5/5

  1. Great film. Watching it every November 5th has become a tradition for me and a workmate. If I'm not working on the day, I'll read the graphic novel in the morning and watch the film at night.

    V is such a great character, his fight scenes are good and his speeches are good. The film is brilliantly cast, it looks amazing and the set pieces are crafted well.

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 My Review: Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected. I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the gr

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
