V for Vendetta

V for Vendetta (2005)

Plot summary

In the not so distant future, the United States's war on terrorism escalated hostilities to the breaking point between the US and England. England, desireing peace at any cost, restructures its government with Adam Sutler as the High Chancelor, a militaristic figure almost comparable to Hitler. England launches nuclear missles at the US, and muslim countries. The US's war on terror is ended, and Suter is soon to resign, when a biological terror attack on an elementary school in London promotes the populace to support his stay, indefinately. Muslim extremists are blamed for the attack, and all non-christian religions are banned, leading to the secretive abduction, and execution, of those deemed "different". Several years later, a misterious man in a Guy Fawks mask known only as "V" begins attacks against the corrupt government. (Reference: Guy Fawks attempted to destroy Parliment on November 5, 1605 in what's known as "The Gunpowder Treason") V announces to the public in a hijacked broadcast that he will destroy Parliment on November 5, one year from then, to instigate the overthrow of the government. He leaves the citizens of England with a parting quote: "Remember, remember, the fifth of November. The gunpowder treason and plot.
For, I see no reason why the gunpowder treason,
Should ever be forgot." He is followed by Evey Hammond, who, like V, has had her life robbed by the government. Together, they plan the breaking of the bonds of the new English Empire.

Mistakes

As V attacks all of Creedy's men with his knives, in one shot he cuts one man's neck, and blood sprays onto the man's face, but in the next shot as the man falls, his face is clean.

Trivia

In the scene where Evey gets her hair cut, it was Natalie Portman's real hair they cut. They had only one shot to capture that scene, and everybody was quite nervous if the scene would turn out usable.
