Mike's movie corner: V vor Vendetta

Remember, remember the fifth of November [...]

Warning: may contain spoilers and peanuts!

The movie is stuffed with symbols, which many folks wouldn't even take notice of. Taking into account that our superhero is actually transsexual (or tries to be), this doesn't come out at all. It's probably the misery authors have to face, when directors get hold of their books, comics, stories and turn them inside out.

It is worth seeing, if one likes special effects and doesn't glimpse behind "the scenes". However, it was definitely not worth the 9 quid I paid.

ah come on, it was loads of fun! and i don't think V can in any way be considered a tranny, maybe a bit metrosexual, what with all the cooking and the aprons (!!!), but definitely not one for gender reassignment. mean, the guy [note the pun] behind the mask is macho agent Smith.
