V for Vendetta

I went to see V for Vendetta with Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving last night. It’s a good movie – well worth the trip to the cinema. It’s got a lot of British references though, and I do wonder how many of them will connect with an American movie. To start with the major character ‘V’ is a modern day Guy Fawkes, and although they open the movie with a recreation of events in 1605 when Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament I don’t think the fireworks used elsewhere in the movie special effects will connect to americans the same as they will with a british audience.

It’s also not subtle about it’s political points – but whether Americans will see that too remains to be seen.
