Yes he does.

I'm psyched for this movie. It looks great, especially for a little liberal like me. I'm really excited because I actually don't know who the actor behind the mask is. No one say it please, I want it to be a surprise. And yes, anything with Natalie in it is seen by me.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

Dr Dozzy.

If you weren't aware of it, this film comes from the comic book (I hate the term graphic novel) by Alan Moore.
To be perfectly frank, I am amazed that it ever got made, since it deals with some heavy political issues that are totally relevant to the present day and things like the Patriot act
The movie is about power, the abuse of power and what it takes to overthrow corrupt regimes.
The actions of the protagonist in the film would be called terrorism by the powers that be if they were carried out in the present day.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how the film has translated some of the things in the comic book.

V is played by Hugo Weaving.  He played Agent Smith in the Matrix.
END SPOILER



Also, Natalie Portman looks like GI Jane.

I saw a commercial for it a couple of days ago and then looked it up at IMDb, and I am pretty excited about it now.

Why no, no i haven't. I don't claim to have seen everything she was in, but I'm willing to see anything she is in.

It's got a 70% on RT.

But really, who cares about the critics anyway?  It's always historical movies that get the Oscars anyway.

I wanna see this game, and I know one of my friends will want to, because it has a scary-clown guy, the wrod "Vendetta" in the title, and violence.
