"This is a very powerful film. I can see why John Hurt wanted to be a part of this project, since it is so reminiscent of his film 1984. A society in which people are forced to believe as the government decides. The only thing that wasn't convincing was Natalie Portman's English accent. "
"Based off a comic of the same name, though with many parts of the plot but the main part about a fascist government has taken control of the country. Worth watching as one masked hero in a cape saves a civilian and brings her under his wing, taking on the government and have his plans free the people but at what price?!"
"I agree with Alan Moore though. This movie was made as a reaction to 9/11, patriot act, and the war on terror. The original comic book was steeped in British politics to the point where I didn’t understand it. They should have made their own story to fit with the (then) current times. Well at least it looks cool 🤷🏿♂️. "
"Absolutely adored this film. Literally has become my top 5 for sure. "
"I watched this when it was released and I don't think I ever bothered to see it again. I thought it was a cool looking movie but was bored with the story. I may have to watch it again to give it an updated critique as most people hold it in high regard... but until then I give it a 4/10."
"I think I saw part of this back in the day but it was before comic book movies were a thing and I didn’t pay attention. My bad because this is awesome. The message may hit too close to home for some, as it did for me. But despite that, it was engaging and perfect for when you can’t find anything else to watch. "
