We have recently been alerted that a new early review for V for Vendetta has appeared online and sticks to the same tone as the previous reviews for the film; which were all positive.
V for Vendetta Review
The good people over at SHH were scooped an early review for V for Vendetta from a person who was able to catch the film at a special screening during WonderCon.
Like every other review we have read, this review is very positive:
The movie is actually pretty strong, which surprised me. It is a movie about true ideas and not nonsense action. It stays quite true to the tone of the original Alan Moore comic, with some slight deviations. I was initially skeptical. When V first shows up in the film after saving Evey (Natalie Portman), I was afraid we were in for a bad time when he begins alliterating like crazy: "The vain vestige of their vernacular, etc". Luckily it's actually played pretty comically (she answers back: "Are you, like a crazy person?") and is thankfully the only time he does it in the film.
Hugo Weaving as V is funny, charming and menacing at the same time. He claims to only care about restoring freedom to London, yet at the same time conducts murders to avenge his own past. The action scenes, particularly V slashing people apart, are great. It's a nice "R" rating too, with streams of blood shooting from victim's necks as he rushes by.
The review goes on to mention more plot specifics that could be very spoiler-ish for those who have not read the graphic novel.
Head over to SHH for the entire review on V for Vendetta.
V for Vendetta will be released to theatres on March 17th, 2006.
