Corrected entry: The timing does not line up with two characters who, as the movie suggests were imprisoned at the same time. V seems to suggest that Larkhill happened 20 years ago, and the BTN verifies this when they reported that V was connected with the Larkhill explosion 20 years ago. However in Valerie's letter it says that she acted in a movie and moved to London in 2015 and got imprisoned somewhere in that time frame. The movie takes place in 2020.rdjaxx
Corrected entry: When V reveals that the notes that Evey had been reading while imprisoned were from a real person and that he had saved the notes all of these years, there is a large problem. How did V manage to save the notes from the fire? V is not wearing any clothes and you can plainly see that he is not holding anything in his hands since they are not clenched at all when he first walks through the flames.Sussudio
Corrected entry: During Valerie's story, she mentions meeting her girlfriend Anna around 2015. Despite this time frame, several anti-Bush signs are visible during the montage footage on TV of riots due to America's downfall/Sutler's rise to power.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Evey activates the tube train and joins Mr. Finch on the platform as the train moves out of the station, several large production-grade lighting fixtures on tall stands can be seen along the platform. It's possible that these were "hidden in plain sight" and were supposed to be work lights for V.
Corrected entry: The BTN news studio facility does not have teleprompters/autocues on their cameras. In the scene where V enters the studio, you can also see that one of the camera's viewfinders is turned off.
Corrected entry: When V is broadcasting his plans on the television everybody is watching in awe. There is a gentleman in the bar who is smoking a cigarette letting it hang from his mouth as he watches the screen. Next shot back to him he is still staring at the screen but his cigarette is twice as big as it was before. It is unlikely that he lit another one because everybody was glued to the screen and not even drinking their drinks.Spaceboy_007
Corrected entry: The mouse hole in which Evey finds Valerie's message is (when standing in the doorway) on the right side of the cell. But when Evey gets out, we see that her cell (number 5) is the last one of the left row, meaning there only is a full wall to its right, with cell number 4 to its left (which is consistent with what we we see in the doctor's memories). Thus, the hole does not link cell 5 to cell 4 (Valerie's). Since V took the time to recreate Larkhill, and wants Evey to live through exactly the same experience he has, there is no reason why he wouldn't recreate everything as it originally was. Plus, as previously said, his underground setting corresponds to the doctor's memories.Sereenie
Corrected entry: After Evey awakes at V's home for the first time after being knocked unconscious, she has a short exchange of dialog with V and then says she has to leave. After she says she is going home, V says, "Didn't you say they were looking for you?" Even though Evey had never mentioned it to him before and quite possibly couldn't have due to being unconscious.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Evey is in a holding cell and reading Valerie's letter, there is a scene where Valerie and her lover are on the couch watching a political commentary. While the commentator is saying "to close the remaining troop stations," there is a scene of protesters. You can see (helps to pause the film) that one of the signs says "BUSH, YOU'RE A F**KING..." It cuts off on the bottom of the screen so you can't see the rest of the sign.porkman385
Corrected entry: Contrary to what the opening historical flashback denotes, Guy Fawkes did not resist arrest but simply surrendered to the Parliament guards upon being discovered with the gunpowder barrels. Likewise he avoided being successfully hanged by jumping off the gallows platform after his rope had been fitted so his neck broke and he instantly died.
Corrected entry: In the final scene of the movie, when all of the citizens are removing their masks, you can see Deitrich in the crowd, despite the finger killing him earlier for having a Koran in his house.
Corrected entry: When Evey is being led into V's torture cell, she is being supported by two persons, one on each shoulder. Assuming one is V, the identity/existence of the assistant is never mentioned/revealed, and the movie implies V works alone. It is acknowledged that the two-person carry perhaps keeps the audience in suspense as to the identity of the kidnapper, and actually improved the movie in that regard (being carried by one and only one person might have been a clue as to V being the kidnapper).
Corrected entry: When Evie is reading the 'toilet paper story', its writer reveals that she "was born in Nottingham in 1985" and later that she "passed her 11+". The 11+ was an old school test to determine which children went to grammar school, and was abolished long before the mid-1990s, when she would have taken it.
Corrected entry: In the scene where "V" visits Dr. Delia Surridge at her residence, "V" informs Delia that he has administered her with a poison. Presumably this is the same poison "V" administered to his previous victims that causes them to vomit before they die. We watch Delia die, as well as see her dead body after "V" leaves and Inspector Finch arrives. We, however, do not see Delia vomit before dying, or find any vomit near her on her bed after she has died, although all the rest of "V"s previous poisoned victims have had assumingly vomited before they died.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film V and Evie kiss. One can see that there is a mouth hole in the mask. After he gets in the final fight with the group of men with guns, he comes back to Evie. As he is on the ground there is a blood mark on the mask and one can see that the mouth hole is now closed.willy martinez
Corrected entry: The film seems to confuse England and Britain. Sutler and Prothero refer to England a lot when they're making national broadcasts, implying that England is now a separate country, but organisations still have British in front of them (e.g. British Television Network), implying that the UK is still united.
Corrected entry: Sutler is supposed to come to power in our future (after 2015), but in the scenes of the riots that take place at the time the police still wear tunics and no body armour - British police officers have worn body armour for some time now and haven't worn tunics except on formal occasions for years. These scenes appear to actually be stock news footage, but the anachronism is still glaring.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the film we see V put his mask on from his perspective. There are no screens in the eyeholes. Yet several times throughout the film we see that the mask has screens in both eyeholes.
Corrected entry: V is supposed to be solely responsible for Evey's entire interrogation process. However, in the scene where Evey is getting her head shaved, it is quite visible under the transparent latex gloves that the hands belonging to the person holding the clippers are not discolored and burnt like V's which were visible earlier in the movie.
