"V for Vendetta" was a film I both enjoyed and disliked. I thought the plot line was skillfully drafted and unique, but I personally didn't like the violence and graphicness of the picture. With that said, I think showing the violence was the most successful way to display the seriousness of the situations and the corrupt, totalitarian government. Natalie Portman did a great job in this film, as well has Hugo Weaving, who had a challenging role of demonstrating his character only from his body movements and voice. The combination of action and a more broad, political theme was well balanced, and the suspenseful plot line kept me interested the entire film.
