  4. In this film called ‘V for Vendetta’, it does allusion to reality with examples of things that happen to us today. In some aspects, today is the same as the movie.
    Some of the parallels of the movie with the reality is that TV doesn’t tell the truth because it says that ‘V’ has been killed and it’s a lie and in reality they lie too. Other parallel is that seem different on TV because Mr. Prothero says that he has a nose like Big Ben. Other parallels are greedy and lying policy or many worlds problems or in each country or city.
    Many of the films that we watch are more like reality than we think.

  6. The truth is that I have found many coincidences between the film “V for Vendetta” and the current situation that is happening around the world.

    In the film, there is a curfew in London, (It is a quarantine, like the one we are obeying) because of a virus. Almost everybody believes that the virus was spread by an extremist religious organization, but this is not the truth. The virus is created, spread, and pharmacies are paid to found the cure for its commercialization. Later, it is said that the help has been given by governments, to have the population in their favor and obtain votes. These false explanations are supported by the media, because “doubt would make everyone go crazy”.
    After the explosion that V create at the beginning of the film, people start to be worried about it. All witnesses are arrested, and people are tricked to believe that all of this is caused because of an emergency demolition. Governments say that the murders are victims of the pandemic too. That’s why V wants everyone to stop believing in the media and make people aware of the control that they are being subdued.

    If we go deeper, this is not far away from the situation with COVID-19. The quarantine, the fake news that has been discovered, the suppositions of people about what is happening…

    Finally, I want to mention one thing that came to my mind when I was watching the film. While images of a revolution carried out years before the current situation of the film were appearing, I remembered the riots that occurred in Catalonia some months ago. Although it seems that this situation is no longer important to the media, at least in Spain.

  7. The film is indeed true that it has a little relation to the situation we are experiencing in Spain, seen from the exaggeration. It is a movie with an interesting story, that catches you from the first moment, making you worry about V and his relationship with Evey. Furthermore, the ending is not the typical one in which the protagonists always win and live happily ever after. It is a highly recommended movie to see in these times of quarantine with a double meaning.

    The story begins on November 4 in the United Kingdom is ruled by a regime dictatorial ultra-conservative and fascist so-called Fire Norse, the head of which is the leader Adam Sutler. Evey Hammond, a woman who works for the British Television Network (BTN), the string-governmental television, is attacked by two members of the secret police, who accused her of violating the curfew. However, it ends up being saved by a strange individual masked man who calls himself V, and that leads her to a rooftop to witness the destruction of the building, Old Bailey, organised by him. The next morning, the regime reports that the incident was a demolition planned in advance, but V takes the string BTN, and from there sends a message that is given responsibility for the attack and prompted the population that will accompany you on the 5 of November of the following year, the date on which promises to destroy the Parliament of the United Kingdom.Evey helps them to escape to V of the building of the NTB, putting herself in danger by doing so.

One night, the police broke into the house of Gordon since his television program is performed to make fun of the leader of the regime, Sutler. Evey is captured while trying to escape and is imprisoned, where he is in the utmost corners of the head completely. During the torture to which it is subjected in order to reveal the identity of V, his only comfort is reading a letter found in his cell and in which Valerie, a lesbian woman, has his life before prison. Finally, the non-access state is released, and discovers that in reality he had kidnapped was V, and that everything they had done to him was a hoax (with the exception of the letter from Valerie -who really existed – which had been found by V during their stay in prison). It is then when the young girl realizes that, having faced its own death, since you can live without fear and leaves V with the promise that he will return before the 5th of November At the same time, Eric Finch, the inspector of police who had been following the case of V, he begins to find relationships between the masked and the assassinations of government officials. One day he receives a message where someone appointment to talk and go, a strange beggar tells how twenty years ago, the current government organised the attacks bacteriological to get the power through generation of fear in the population. V was one of the prisoners that the government locked up in the detention centre of Larkhill, where he carried out experiments with humans. Its name derives from the number of cell in which was locked up, the number five in roman numerals. Of all the test subjects, only he survived the experiments, acquiring a greater ability both physical and mental, which led him to destroy the centre and escape, suffering terrible burns from the explosions. From this revelation, the inspector Finch realizes what’s going to happen and as he explains the plan V to your partner, begin to form numerous riots in London started because of the murder of a girl who wore a Guy Fawkes mask on the part of a member of the secret police. Come November 5th, Evey visits V, and this shows a train loaded with explosives to destroy Parliament through an via the abandoned London underground. Believing that a decision like this already does not belong to him, V he delegates the destruction of Parliament to Evey, and goes to confront Peter Creedy, the head of the secret police in Britain. This, as part of an agreement she made with V above, kidnapped the leader Sutler in exchange for that he would deliver. Despite the assassination of the leader at the hands of the chief of the secret police, V refuses to surrender and, after receiving numerous shots, most of which are stopped thanks to a suit of armor hidden, kills Creedy and his men before they can reload weapons. Mortally wounded, he returns next to Evey and finally, after confessing his love to her, dies. She lays her body on the train next to the explosives, but when it is about to operate the lever that puts it in operation, inspector Finch discovers it and tries to stop it. When you have discovered the corruption of the regime of Fire-Nordic, the inspector just allowing Evey to finish the plan of V. in the meantime, many people take to the streets of London and, using the Guy Fawkes masks that V had sent to town, are marching towards the Parliament, where the military forces let their guard down before the action rebel of the civil. Finally, come midnight, while playing the 1812 Overture of Tchaikovsky through the speakers from the city, the building is destroyed by explosives that it was carrying the train.

  9. Okay, but it could be better the movie has action, political conflicts, metaphors, data on history and good music, it all comes down to a poorly resolved movie since it does not take a serious look at the matter and takes it as a typical cliche of a future ditope dominated by a bad guy which in this case is easily mocked and not taken seriously. In short, the atmosphere reminds the comic of something to highlight but as a movie it should not be taken seriously if not to pass the time.

  10. The movie “V for vendetta” has similarities with today and in some things they are not alike at all, some of the similarities it has are:
    -The quarantine that we are living, because in the film he puts them in quarantine inventing diseases.
    – Both today and in the film there are corrupt politicians.
    -Another point in common is that the media falsify the news, for their benefit, to create panic, to avoid attention to what does not benefit them …
    -Politicians also prohibit everything that can make citizens stand up and cannot control them.

    The biggest difference in the movie is hero V, because currently the hero would be similar to the Marvel or DC superheroes but V is a superhero who seeks the destruction of the government and liberate the people.

  11. V for Vendetta is film that talk about a man (V) with an anarchist ideal, he faces to a fascist government, he killing to members or people involveds on it. V want to killer this people because in the past, they did a experiments with him.
    The similarity that I have found with the current situation has been this, the experiments done with people; they injecting them a virus, he killing more 100.000 personas, and that in a first seemed like experiments to create a biological weapon, finally was an abuse of power where the government create a virus and its cure, so that they can win a lot of money and generate fear in the population.
    This could be an possible cause of what is happening in the currently in the world.

  12. This film has caught my atention and I had heard of it.
    “V” is a complex and intelligent man who dedicates his life to free citizens , but at the same time is lonely and violent.
    He invites the citizens of England to join the clarkness of Parliment the 5 of November.
    England has a totalitarian and fascist government that lies to his citizens and “V” will end this.
    This movie is related to reality , since citizens are subjected to government lies , and few people would dare to react against them.

  13. This film talks about a world in war where only one country is in “peace”. England is in a totalitarian regime but ¿why? Throughout the film we see that this is because the current government expanded a deadly virus among people. Causing a series of events that concluded with the victory of fascism.
    This leads me to think that what is happening around the world could benefit both governments and pharmaceutical companies. Governments would totally control us because we can’t leave our house and pharmaceutical companies would make a lot of money selling the vaccine against this virus.

  14. V for Vendetta is a drama and fiction film. With this film I have discovered I like this genre. I like this type of films because when you start watching it, you want to know the end.
    The main characters are “V” and Evey. My favourite character is Evey because she becomes a strong woman. She has got long, curly, fair hair, but she loses her beautiful hair in a part of the film.
    The end of the film is unexpected. I want to see who is behind “V” mask.
    I recommend my friends to see it.

  15. In the film V, the protagonist, tells us why he wants revenge and talks about the society of that time. In that explanation, he mentions things that are similar to what is happening today. The film’s government created a biological weapon to scare people and gain power. It also manipulated televisions to control people’s opinion. Today a new virus has appeared and its origin isn’t clearly known. Many people are making money from this virus and one of the options is that some government were behind it. The televisions give a lot of information every day and it isn’t known if everything is true or if they tell lies.

  16. The movie is called v of vendetta, the protagonist is called V and the second protagonist is calles Evey. V want destroy the parlament because England is led by a dictator and also V want to free to the citizens.Evey is rescued by V in one situation of Life or death and throughout all movie we can see that the most importante for V is the 5 of noviembre because is the inspiration to be V. I think that this movie should be seen by everyone at least once in Life because the movie has a very important message for all citizens of one country. This movie seems very old because England is controlled by a dictatorship but today our government has some aspects similar to the movie. My favourite part of the movie is the ending because is a end with clear ideas and the message of the movie is explained very well.

  17. Hello!
    Note: this contains spoilers. What I like most is when, at the end of the film, thousands of people, in Guy Fawkes´ mask, take to the streets and go to the British Parliament. I love it when Parliament explodes and Tchaikovsky´s oberture 1812 sounds. I like how V, the film´s protagonist, takes down Leader Adam Slatter, the chief of Secret Police, mr. Creedy, and his men, the “Fingers”. The thing I like the least is how V plays with Evey Hammond, the female protagonist. V imprisons her, he tortures her and shaves her head. All to teach her not to be afraid. I don´t like it when V dies.
    I really like that in the end people have hope for the better future.

  18. In my opinion, this film has no parallel with the situation we are today. This tyranny of the Leader reminds me more Hitler, the German chancellor, for his way of imposing himself on society and his way of acting violently.
    If we look carefully, we can see that the Leader in this case would be Hitler, Creedy would be his right hand and V is the leader of the resistance, and thanks to his brave acts and his thirst for justice he has managed to convince the entire population of London to rebel against the tyranny of the Fingers.

  19. V for Vendetta is a film about a man who kill for revenge. He wants reveal against his politic system and he want real freedom. He thinks all the people is controlled by the government. This question is evident when the news, in the film, show his death when he is alive. In this movie the government makes some experiments whit humans, they taste several illnesses and different treatment. V get go out and he begin his own revenge. Nowadays we are suffered a pandemic and we don’t know the origin. There are a lot of theories about it. In the other side we don’t know all the information that we received is true or false like the film. I am very worried because I don’t know this trouble will end.

  20. Watching this film in this situation make us see ourselves reflected in it.
    We don’t live in a totalitarian regime like the characters, but when Evey wants to go out after the curfew it seems familiar to us.
    These days we have seen a lot of videos of people who have gone out without authorization and have been stopped by the police, sometimes using their force.
    The news are another example, the way that they manipulate the information in the movie it’s probably the same that our news are using (and not only these days, always) to manipulate us.
    We live in the post-truth era and that it’s so dangerous.
    But if there is something more dangerous than the post-truth, that is the uncertainty.
    Maybe we are dealing with a virus (COVID-19), but the worst virus is definitely corruption.

  21. What I think of the film is that with what we are living today, we can say that it is similar to the film V for Vendetta, because as I said, there is a curfew, in which there were people who violated what the government and authorities said and should be punished for it, and as we are living the coronavirus, and we should not be outside our homes not to catch it and not to infect others, because it is similar to the film. And also with the television, which is now saying many things about the coronavirus, and we must heed them in everything they say and in all the warnings they put.

  22. V for Vendetta is a 2006 film about a fictitious England with a totalitarian regime. The protagonist calls himself V, is a mysterious masked man who attempts to avenge the people and free them from their corrupt government. Evey is saved by him one night and ends up involved in his plan to destroy the government.

    But what attracted my attention most is the similarities with our current situation.

    A virus suspected of being released by the government (and so it was), a quarantine to keep people locked up in their homes and the news being manipulated by the government that only tell lies to cover it up everything…

    In conclusion, I think it is a good film, ideal to see these days and reflect a little about our circumstances.

  23. V DE VENDETTA
    Great movie and very necessary in the uncertain days we live. It does not leave any “controversial” subject untreated: terrorism, homophobia, censorship, totalitarianism, fascism, pedophilia … and it does it in a masterful way, without presenting good, very good and bad, very bad. I loved the character of V, capable of making me want to clap and vomit, adorable and detestable at the same time.
    I loved the ending, it is very spectacular, and not only because of the special effects used in it. It made my hair stand on end all the people walking down the street.
    I give it a 10 because, although it is not perfect, there is very little to criticize and it says truths like fists.
    The parallelism that exists between what is currently happening and the film is that the government in the film forces them to quarantine inventing diseases, as well as the quarantine that we are living today and also those who are never lacking, who are corrupt politicians and the media that tell us false news.

  24. The film V de Vendetta it is about a man that experiment with he different diseases for look if they work. When V get escape, he only want vengance, too he look for the freedom because the gobernments are lieding in their means of communication and in the news. In my opinion I think that yes because the socials networks tells a lot of news, but there news are fake news. A lot of people say that only have to pay attention to the TV because the tell all true, but we will never really know who is telling the truth and who is not, bacause they manipule us and make us believe what thay want. This pandemic in my opinion has been created by governments because they want to see us with fear and they want us to trust them. I also think that the coronavirus was taken from a laboratory while they were experimenting.

  26. The film is about the history of a fictional future where England is an unfair status and in that new situation in England, there is a young woman called Evey that she belongs to the poor social status. She is rescued by “V” a masked man who wants justice and freedom.
    I really like the argument of the movie because I think that it tries to represent some actual situations in different places in the daily life, moreover I have another opinion because I also think that it tries to make us see what would happen in a world dominated by corruption and injustice, but I don’t like how Evey acts at first because I didn’t agree with her behavior. Definitely, “V” de Vendetta is a weird movie that can make you feel all the feelings and opinions of the actors and the argument is so original and fantastic, I think that is one of the best movies that I have ever seen.

  27. This film is based in the man Guy Fawkes, he tries in 1605 blow up the parlament.
    The film is about a woman named Evey. Evey go to dinner out, but she leave them the la hour that the country can’t leave out. She finds whith policmen and they want kill here for go out. She goes to dead but, a masked man saves her. He says that his name is “V” and he shows her his plans for that night. He go to a rooftop, he does sound a music and he blows up a statue of the justice.
    The next day, V go to the building of TV and transmit a mensaje, he say that we are living in a oppressed society, he proposes that the next 5th of November go to the parlament for see as he destroys it.
    He leave of the bulding when a man points for he. The woman helps he, but she faints because the policeman hits she. V carries the woman to his house.
    The woman scapes from his home because she has got fear because V is an assassin.
    V helps she for that she hasn’t got fear.
    The 5th of the November, V with their followers blow up parliament for demonstrate that it doesn’t power and the really power is in the people.
    The best part for me is when the music sounds and the parliament explodes and some Fireworks go off.
    The worst part for me is when V dies.
    I think that V did the best for the country’s people.

  29. V for Vendetta

    The film shows an England in which the government is oppressive, and to anyone who shows an opinion contrary to that of the government, the government will respond.
    When the movie starts, a woman in London is seen leaving her house on curfew and she meets some men from the government who want to lock her up, but a man with a mask and a suit saves her and that man is called V.
    V teaches him his “(concert)” in honor of the lady justice and the music begins to sound through loudspeakers and the lady justice building begins to explode and in the end it is destroyed. I loved this part.
    Throughout history, V becomes more friends with Evey the girl since Evey saved V’s life.
    V becomes a terrorist and convinces the population that they must not let the government be an oppressor.
    Watch at the news building and show a recording to everyone that next November 5 whoever wants to go to parliament to destroy it. I did not like this part very much.
    After all this Evey has to stay at V’s house for a year until the following November 5 because they are looking for her and she has no other safe place.
    Evey decides to help V. But Evey runs away to the house of a friend who is eventually caught by Creedy’s men, a government man. Evey is also captured and tortured but in the end the one who tortured her was the same man, V. V teaches her not to be afraid, but Evey insults him for having done all that, but in the end he asks for forgiveness.
    Already on December 4, having reached an agreement with Creedy, Creedy brings to the Leader the highest ranking man in the government. And they kill the Leader. And then V kills Creedy by strangling him. V returns with Evey, they were in a subway station that led to the parliament, V for many years had put a train with many explosives. V was wounded and died, Evey put him on the train and I wait for it to be December 5, but suddenly the chief commissioner comes and tries to stop her but Evey convinces him and when he rings the five o’clock bells he activates the lever and the train goes the parliament and while everyone listens to music the parliament explodes and the movie ends with fireworks that give the shape of V.

    The part that I liked the most was the one where the Parliament exploded and the one that I liked the least was the one where the main character was locked up.

  31. In the film, the government wants to control the population, as in reality.
    Shutler wants to do this with a virus. In my opinion, at real life the powerful people wants to control us with the ignorance and trying to not to teach us how to think.
    In the film, the main character is a person who knows what the government is doing and decided to lead a revolution. Under my point of view, in our society the revolution won’t be led by an only person, but it will be led by millions of people coordinated by internet, and the government won’t try to stop it with weapons ,as in the film. They will do it under the name of “terrorist attack”
