My sister advised me to watch this film, and after much persuasion I succumbed. It’s a dystopian thriller about terrorism, which keeps you hooked throughout.
There were so many familiar faces in this film, it was a delight to watch.
At its heart, the film was dark and intriguing – very relevant in 2014 / 2015, with its themes of terrorism, corruption and government. Natalie Portman playing Evey Hammond was certainly interesting but I really couldn’t imagine the role being fulfilled by anyone else.
While I didn’t adore this movie, it was still very impressive and the cinematography was superb. The film itself can be interpreted in so many different ways, and this is a good thing because it promotes discussion.
A tense thrill-ride, this film had me guessing right until the end. Hugo Weaving was interesting in the role of V, although at the end I was half expecting an unmasking scene in the style of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.
MY RATING: *** / *****
