I have 4 words for you...GO SEE THIS MOVIE!
I just got back from the showing, and it was stellar. Natalie Portman's character is great and 'V' (played by the dude who played Agent Smith in the Matrix, although you'd never know it because you don't see his face) was the best tragic hero I've seen in a very long time. There are a lot of political undertones, but they can certainly be extended far beyond (and more applicably) today's world. It follows Natalie Portman's character (Evee) as she is pulled into a plan created by 'V' who is a freedom fighter that is characterized as a terrorist by a fascist government.
The story is great (a lot of historical similarities to the rise of the Nazi party or Caeser), the screenplay is good, the acting is tremendous and a lot of stuff gets blown up! Very, very good movie IMO.
Go see it if you get a chance.
