Becky and I went to see “V for Vendetta” on Friday night. The Fandango website at V for Vendetta describes the movie as follows:
“Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V For Vendetta tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey (Natalie Portman) who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked vigilante known only as “V.” Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V urges his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V’s mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself – and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.”
V for Vendetta was V for Very Stupid. Becky fell asleep since it was too long and painful for her to watch and stay awake. Since I like Science Fiction films more than Becky does I agonized through it and actually didn’t mind it that much. Natalie Portman was very good in the film and the acting and direction of the film was good. The story was just ridiculous.
Christians and people with any type of moral fiber were made out to be raving lunatics and the axis of evil in a world gone mad. The setting is in Britian and the United States has been destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah with the belief that God has given the U.S. what it deserves for its overly violent society. This may not be too far from the truth, in the minds of many people today, based on the level of wickedness that has taken hold of our nation. However, in this movie, a modern Hitler who is portrayed as an insane Christian dictator, has taken over and his victims are homosexuals and people with any form of liberal thought.
“V” comes forth as the liberator and hero of the film to eradicate this evil and bring back liberty and freedom from the cruel and wicked regime. Too bad he wasn’t available for eliminating Sadaam Hussein :), which was a real life Muslim dictator I might add. The film once again made Christians look like the axis of evil in the world, which is ridiculous since some of the most persecuted people in history have been Christians and even today they are being murdered, tortured and imprisoned around the globe. It would have done the writers well to visit a few sites like Persecution.org, Persecution.com and PersecutionBlog.com to get their facts straight before writing such a whacky story.
The movie was entertaining from a super hero and comic book story standpoint, but we would recommend saving your money, skipping the movie all together or waiting for the rental.
