When I first saw this movie I didnt understand what it was. Now, I see after being a bit more educated. If you like liberal propaganda( conservatives are evil, Christian's are evil, the government is evil bla bla bla), then you will love this movie. Having the knowledge of what is going on worldwide and seeing the big picture of what is going on around the world today, this movie makes me sick. Conservatives are bad. Socialism good. Christians are bad, muslims are good. Order is bad, anarchy is good. These are some of the messages of this movie(and liberals).

The movie was well done, but had some major holes. Is guess you are just supposed to look over them, but I find it hard to do. Firstly, how did V manage to blow up the prison he was in, he simply would not have had the ability. Secondly, why was he not arrested after he blew it up. Thirdly, and I am aware that this is political, but everyone will admit conservatives are a little gun heavy when it comes to the public, which means the public shouldn't have faced the problem with no guns, just saying.

This movie has jaw dropping graphics but some of the story does get a little dry and we do never learn the face of the mysterious V. The unknown plays a large factor of fear in the movie so not knowing V's true identity until the end was a good and bad move. They waited a tad bit too long to reveal who he was. Overall good movie, especially for DC comics for it not being super heroes!
