Comments: Film Critic Quote of the Week

I really enjoyed watching V for Vendetta, and I am frankly surprised that people are trying to call this timely in relation to modern day politics. Why can't a movie simply be entertainment?

As for your trouble with rooting for a terrorist, I would hardly classify V as the same type of terrorist as we're dealing with in today's world. He was very careful to only attack members of the government who wronged him personally (and anyone who tried to capture him as well, but that's to be expected). He warned a year in advance of his major objective giving clear details and a timeline which allowed for no casualties in the actual attack. AND, when was the last time an Al Qaeda terrorist saved a poor girl about to be attacked in the street by a bunch of (government) thugs?
