V for Vendetta is a vividly vivacious vivifying vibey visual treat.
The visual effects are nothing less but astonishing with compassionate yet ruthless characterization of character V (voiced by Hugo Weaving). It focuses more on the intense dialogues with witticism embedded in it but this takes nothing out of the limited yet spectacularly filmed and choreographed action.
The mystery character V believed that until his countrymen become conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious. So, it was first necessary to expose the corruption in the government and to do so he gives the tyrant government a taste of their own medicine by using the tool of fear with which the government itself used to exploit its countrymen.
He chose to bite on the bullet as he never imagined that he could alter much in his own lifetime. But what he imagined was the little knots of resistance springing up here and there –small groups of people would be banding themselves together and gradually growing and even leaving a few records behind, so that they could carry on from where he might leave off.
Rebellion means a look in the eyes, an inflection of the voice; at the most, an occasional whispered word originated from an idea. Character V lets you ponder upon the thought that behind a revolution what really lies is an idea, which can’t be killed, oppressed, manipulated unlike the bearer of that idea. It’ll pass on from one person to another until the final or the only verdict, Vengeance is achieved.
