I love this movie, not as good the book, but still inspiring. Im moved close to tears when I watch the scene in which the masked people climb over the riot cops. Maybe I'm crazy.

Something I noticed though, is that people who talk about the movie and the book on the internet often refer to V as a terrorist. Does anyone else think this is kind of ironic?

Crazy, perhaps, butyou're not alone.

I thought the movie was so horrible it was almost good. And I've since read Moore's Watchmen, which has made me curious to read some of his other stuff, including the V graphic novel, because I want to see how much of the movie's sheer awfulness is the filmmakers' fault, and how much of it is the fault of the source material. Moore got so angry with the film treatment that he pulled his name from it. But it could just be that he was embarrassed at how silly his ideas looked when translated to the big screen.

hahaha...

yeah, the movie is far more simplistic than the book. The characters are fewer in numbers and not as deep.

I think that the movie, if I were to judge it on its merit as a film, is simplistic, obvious and seems like it got hacked in the edit.

I love the story line though and I think I might be biased. Kind of like all those Dark Kight fans who liked the pile of doodoo that was Batman Begins.
