First, I can guarantee that there are a good majority
of moviegoers out there that have never heard of this adaptation, or maybe
even the novel in general. So, let me begin with a brief introduction to
the story [for an entire first look, click
Alan Moore's V for Vendetta is a retelling of 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 [in
a sense]. The story takes place in an imaginary England where 'the War',
a nuclear war at that, and a take over of the government by the Labour party
has caused Britain to become a fascist state. Imagine a totalitarian state
under Hitler, but in this state each part of the system has a function,
such as 'the Voice' and 'the Eye' and 'the Finger.'
Amidst this new mess of a government is a concentration camp survivor who fancies himself by wearing a Guy Fawkes mask and terrorizing political establishments. The 'terrorist,' goes under the codename of 'V' and has only one mission-tear down the new government and allow anarchy to reign king.
