V for Vendetta was terrible

V for Vendetta Poster

I just got back from seeing it. THis poster sums up my feelings. Natalie Portman was HOOOORRRIBLE. TERRIBLE. I Don’t think I’ve seen worse acting EVER. She makes Madonna look like a pro. Holy christ she couldn’t act at ALL. The movie was too long, anti-climatic, boring, and drives the message home to you with the subtlety of a sledgehammer to your balls. Do yourself a favor and skip this. There is only 1 good knife fight at the end, just watch that then go watch Failure to launch or something.

    wow i couldn’t disagree with you more.
    how can you embrace an ideologically bankrupt film like “running scared” and not at least applaud the controversial territory that v treads upon?

      this movie isn’t that controversial. The concepts explored have already been tread upon many times before in far better ways. Also, Natalie Portman was TERRIBLE.

        i agree the concepts were pretty straight forward, however in light of our current political realities i think it had some balls to make certain distinctions that not a lot of films do anymore.. oh and i really liked her acting, but i guess you’re the expert. omg @ me being a pervert when she was dolled up for that bishop haha

    I will wait for HBO.
    And listen mister-man, no Brokeback Mountain cracks. Just because the media drove it like a spike into the heart of American zeitgeist is no reason to deride it.
    Now Ang Lee’s comments about losing Best Picture is something else entirely. I went from thinking he was awesome to thinking’, “Gee, hmmmm, what an asshole.”
    And I agree that Crash was the best film. Of the nominees I saw, of course.

    V for Vendetta
    I don’t know what the hell you’re smoking, but V for Vendetta is by no means boring. True, if you went into the theater expecting to see an action movie, you were dead wrong, but what you got instead was a beautiful movie blurring the line between terrorism and heroism, which presents itself in both a smart, stunning, and beautiful depiction of a man struggling for vengeance against a fascist government comparable to Nazi Germany. This movie has some awesome knife fights (three of them, not two), explosions, great acting (I don’t agree with your complaints about Nataly Portman), smart dialog, and is a powerful movie because what it proposed would happen doesn’t seem that far-fetched. I think this movie was a masterpiece, capturing all of the best aspects of the graphic novel, including the beautiful imagery of it, and is one of the best movies I have ever seen, even above the level of the first Matrix movie. His introductions says it all, but maybe in words that somebody like you would have trouble understanding.
    “Viola! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the Vox Populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish the venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and virtuous…”
