V for Vendetta...
I really liked that the protagonist from 1984 (the victim in that movie) played the major symbol of the antagonist in this movie (John Hurt). I thought that was a nice touch given the underlying “big brother” and “big government” themes between the two.
The movie was a bit dark – through and through dark – but well done. I agree with the one comment on imdb – “uniquely brilliant”. It has become what I would currently answer the question “so what’s your favorite movie” with.
The ending was really well done (won’t give it away). And that the credits rolled with Street Fighting Man was just icing on the cake.
