V for Vendetta

OK, I've been sleeping. When I saw that they were making this movie my first thought was, "man, Alan Moore is going to be pissed." My second thought was, "I bet it'll suck, high profile actor like Hugo Weaving, V isn't going to wear a mask is he?"

I was right about the first thought, and happy to say wrong about the second. I found it to be an acceptable adaption for me at least. Not nearly as subtle as Moore's in some parts, damned ham-fisted in others, but it did make the story more accessible and understandable. The ending changed a little too much for my taste but that's entertainment for you, the masses like a neat bow at the end to let them know how to feel.
