Review Of Film V For Vendetta

1470 words - 6 pages

This movie “V for Vendetta” was taken from a book written by Alan Moore and it was written years before all the things that started happening in the world, like the war, and all the problems that the government is going through. He tells us that “the people should not be afraid of the government, that the government should be afraid of their people”. People can realize that there are no coincidences in this world, everything happens for a certain purpose, because it had to happen.
It all starts when an experiment is being made by certain people from the government on real people, innocent people, using those people to create some kind of monsters. Lots of people die in the attempt of the scientist but only one gave them hope. This lab suddenly explodes and all the data is “lost” and only one person survives, all burned, and escapes. An individual from the government takes a virus and contaminates Saint Mary’s school and the 3 waters, where people drank, and it kills about 80,000. Then mysteriously the cure is found and the same chancellor that was ruling, when the lab explodes and chaos was formed, wins the next elections. The guy that escaped wants to have his revenge for what these people made to him and to make the people “remember, remember the 5th of November”. A night when he, V that always worn a mask and his cloak, goes out on the 5th of November, where it all starts, and on his way to his destination he save a women, Evey, from being abused from Nazis that were on the street and takes her to the roof where he says that he is going to direct music. When they are there music starts from the streets and an important statue explodes and Evey freaks out and went away. Police starts investigating the case to find out who was the terrorist that destroyed it. Evey in her work, a television news channel company, realized that cops were looking for her because she was one witness from the explosion of that night. V goes to the company to make an announcement to all the people by television. When V is going out Evey saves him, by instinct, from a cop that was stopping V and he takes Evey with him to where he lived. Evey wanted to leave but V could not let her because she could tell people where he was, so she had to be there for a year until V accomplished his plan, on the next November 5th, of destroying the parliament. Evey told him a little about her and how his little brother died being a victim of the Saint Mary’s school virus and how that changed completely her family and how his parents died fighting for their country. V kept working on his plan killing all the people that were involved in the tragedy of the lab. Evey gets kind of scare and tried to be calm about the situation and went with the plan and told him that if he needed help she would help him. V used her to get to a priest that was involved in the case and kills him and gives him a red rose. Evey runs away scare, when V killed the priest, and goes to a friend and stays with...
