I've been looking forward to the release of V for Vendetta with some trepidation since I first heard that an adaptation was seriously in the offing (see my previous posts). ias and I went to see it last night; I'm hoping that she will also post her views on the film, because unlike myself she hasn't read the comic and has a different (and more positive) take on the film.
Without spoilers, what are my feelings on the success of the film?
Is it a bad film? No.
Is it a good adaptation? Sadly, also no. It isn't a disaster, but I wouldn't class it as a success.
Do I think that Alan Moore's condemnation of the film is unjustified? No.
In many ways, the film reminded me of the Morecambe and Wise sketch with Andre Previn; all of the right scenes, just not necessarily in the right order.( Further analysis, with spoilers )
