V for Vendetta - Revolution, Mystery, and Ideal

V for Vendetta(2005) is the film adaptation of Alan Moore's classic DC comic of the same name. Through the alternate setting in the UK, the film explores the themes of revolution, oppression under the dictatorship, and all. Today at Life is a Chance, we're gonna review this film.

Watch it here.

V for Vendetta is a powerful take on the ideal of freedom and revenge. It depicts a story in a weird setting for Britain, where Adam Sutler is the high chancellor or the dictator. The movie pushes the character, Evey, onto the main screen for audience relevance. Evey played by Natalie Portman, swims through the obstacles of Guy Fawkes Night and is met by a mysterious figure called V.

Evey briefly gets an idea of V's agenda and revenge-filled drama. She initially refuses and helps him in his assassination attempts. The camera and action fast forwards the story to V taking his strike back on many prominent people. The media, government, and law are all screwed under the new rule of Adam Sutler, which is again an analogous comparison to Adolf Hitler's regime. The movie vividly tries to explain the idea of freedom and human rights.

V fulfills his mission of revenge peacefully and rejuvenates the confidence of the people in the democratic idea of freedom. The movie pans out successfully with the embodiment V provides as an idea, not as a character. The dystopian setting and the ultimate repercussions of the actions are well suited and respected. Particularly the performance of Natalie Portman is just amazing. Hugo Weaving wonderfully adorns the character of V with his exquisite dialogue deliveries and voice variations.

V for Vendetta is a celebration of revolution under tumultuous times and brightly focuses on the problems under a totalitarian regime. This movie is a great example of how a ruler elected by people could go wrong and selfish without sufficient accountability. It is a dark take and definitely is an answer to rules practicing this kind of cruelty. For a different genre change, we think you all should watch this epic movie.
