V for Vendetta - DVD

V for Vendetta (Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition)Rating: * * * 1/2

Those Wachowski brothers know how to make interesting movies. Of course, this one is based on a graphic novel by Alan Moore and David Loyd, and those Matrix makers didn't direct this time. Natalie Portman shows once again that she can act (unlike her recent Star Wars performances), and Hugo Weaving gets to act behind a mask most of the time (this made me realize how much of an actor's craft is embodied in their voice and delivery).

This dystopian vision not unlike "1984" or "Brazil," also weaves in the post 9/11 world.
