Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore, V for Vendetta takes place in an alternate vision of Britain in which a corrupt and abusive totalitarian government has risen to complete power. During a threatening run in with the secret police, an unassuming young woman named Evey (Natalie Portman) is rescued by a vigilante named V (Hugo Weaving) -- a caped figure both articulate and skilled in combat. V embodies the principles of rebellion from an authoritarian state, donning a mask of vilified would-be terrorist of British history Guy Fawkes and leading a revolution sparked by assassination and destruction. Evey becomes his unlikely ally, newly aware of the cruelty of her own society and her role in it. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Maybe I'm just too easily influenced, but this movie seems to me to be the perfect comment on the state of current politics and the means by which citizens can restore free speech, thought and will. Such aphorisms as "People should not be afraid of their government, governments should be afraid of their people," express the foundational principles of good government clearly, succinctly and with great eloquence. This movie, while set in England in the near future, reminds us clearly of what we have lost in the USA of our traditional liberties and suggests the path to reclaiming what should be ours by right. I recommend it to all who are disgusted (as am I) with the failure of our representatives to represent the citizens who elected them and to lavish all their care and favor on those who have purchased their loyalty.

I can truly identify with the movie and the route America is on; the slippery slope to hell (communism/fascism) if we do NOT pull our heads out of the sand and take back our God given rights of authority over the Earth. I would love to see millions in joker masks march on DC and then BULLDOZE it! The N W O is hellbent on depopulating 90% of the Earth and are moving forcefully towards their goal. Wake Up America! Your FREEDOMS are quickly disappearing; you are the last hope!
