    The explosive V for Vendetta is powered by ideas that are not computer-generated. It's something rare in Teflon Hollywood: a movie that sticks with you. show more

    Richly satisfying entertainment the way movies are at their best, when they prod you to think. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The film is beset by incoherence and implausibilities that are perplexing, given the close relationship between the Wachowskis and the director, Mr. McTeigue. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    Hugo Weaving, weaving deftly beneath a fixed plastic grin and Prince Valiant wig as the mysterious avenger in V for Vendetta, both chills and amuses throughout this enjoyable - if occasionally irresponsible - comic-book thriller. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Viewers expecting a thrill ride might be disappointed. V engages in a couple of satisfying crime-fighting set pieces, but the story is more occupied with mystery and intrigue. Happily, it almost is entirely free of the hollow pomposity that marred the Wachowskis' last two "Matrix" films. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    V for Vendetta represents 2006's first memorable motion picture - a visually sumptuous concoction that combines political allegory, bloody action, and a few stunning cinematic moments into a solid piece of entertainment. show more

    WTF are you kidding? This was a tasteless film that was released too soon after London had their terrorist attacks in 2005. I have boycotted Joel Silver and Warner Brothers ever since.
