yes, i'm aware of the thread in GD. however, i'd like to start a serious discussion in regards to the adaptation, w/o taking away from ppl who enjoy the movie on its own. here's some points to ponder. despite successfully carrying the same message and socio-political commentary, the movie is in places drastically different in its implementation (which is remarkable actually). thus, i dare say, the warchowski bros. have effectively made the movie their own, with respects to moore and lloyd, by using contemporary political climate as a reference. i take that whoever reading this is already familiar with how the movie is similar to the book so lets get straight to the differences. - evey is less a victim here and much more independent character. - gordon is an entirely different character, in some respects better than the comic in that it provides the perspective of the times from a different person, other than V. - the high chancellor (with different name than in comics), creedy and prothero here is more complicit in the creation of the fascist neo-england. convenient on celluloid to pinpoint the baddies. - the ending, with V's viking funeral ending at parliment, rather than 10 downing street, also a more optimistic version of events in regards to rioters. while this makes the movie devoid of grey areas in terms of judgement and moral, it was still a visual treat to watch the rioters in their guy fawkes gear overwhelming the military. meanwhile, i really like the comics version which emphasized the coming of full circle in terms of V as an idea, not a person. thos the movie did somewhat addressed it, differently, in evey's speech. ive some more thoughts, looking fwd to your thoughts.
