V for Vendetta

"V for Vendetta" is a stunning piece of ass-kicking fun for all. This movie's got it all: explosions, knife fighting, rioting, and trying to take down big brother. Thank all your various gods Michael Bay had nothing to do with this movie.

So badass...

The "V" Speech

Voilà � ! 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 these 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 the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

V

Vs costume consists of a big hat, a wig, the oh-so-famous Guy Fawkes mask, and black clothing for everything else. And its awesome. V is just a faceless man who represents rebellion. Which is why "Anonymous" or "Anon" or "Hackers on Steroids" have adopted his visage to stay anonymous and yet seem powerful.

Troublesome Hooligans.

They enjoy making you lose the game. They are generally dicks, but the kind that are funny. Which is unlike V who has a single joke in the entire movie. Which fits his persona. V is covered in burns from his escape out of a concentration camp and now wants revenge on the people who scarred him. He now has a vendetta (get it?) against pretty much every important person.
