This movie, as inspired by the original graphic novel by Alan Moore, is an excellent enhancement of the elements and characters that are in this novel. Because of the placement of events and characters in this movie, all the characters seem to obtain a new depth and are brought essentially off the pages. This movie was one of the best I had seen. This is a real British drama and is well worth the purchase to see it.
The basis to the plot line is different than most stories in that the villan is actually the hero to the majority of the populous, while the protagonist is actually a terrorist and is against the established government. it is because of this change that this storyline is certain to give a twist from modern cinema.
The final aspect of this film that is to be expressed is the interesting time period and unique problems that are portrayed in the film. It is set to be slightly in the future, and the United States has lost power from the world due to the problems it has brought on. The United Kingdom is the last remaining power in the world only because it has completely isolated itself. I find this placement of plot and setting interesting, as it is a portrayal of what could be an eventuality for the current United States.
When looking toward the film in question, it is most simply described as a wondrous movie that is well worth the expense to own. I rank this movie a 9.25 out of 10.
