Afterwards a small group of us (Bear, Bryan, Jeffrey and myself) headed off the the IMAX theatre in the Metreon to see “V for Vendetta”.
My expectations were somewhat low for V, as I am a huge fan of Alan Moore’s original graphic novel os the same name, and Moore had his name removed from the movie’s credits.
Nonetheless, or perhaps because of this, my expectations were handily exceeded.
Overall, despite quite large variances from the original story, I felt that the movie was true to the spirit of Moore’s work.
The movie’s climax works really well because it plays the the strength of the film medium, which wouldn’t work in a comic.
