Summary:

It is November 5, 2020 and Britain is under a totalitarian oppressive government that, in the name of religious self righteousness, rules by fear and practices brutal ethnic, political and religious cleansing. The whole country seems to have succumbed with no resistance to speak of. Comes V, a charismatic, sophisticated, masked man who blows up the ministry of justice then takes over the government controlled TV and invites his fellow citizens to fight their oppressors and take back their country. V sets a date of exactly 1 year later for him to blow the parliament building.

Background:

1) November 5 is a date celebrated in Britain to honor Guy Fawkes, an English soldier that was part of a catholic attempt to overthrow the government in 1605 by blowing up the parliament and killing King James 1 of England.

The mask worn by V is a Guy Fawkes mask.

The Pink Panther Movie Review (7/10)

The infamous Inspector Clouseau, immortalized by the genius of the late Peter Sellers, is back. Steve Martin plays the bumbling, fumbling, inept, idiotic, repressed and uniqely french accented inspector and the result is a mixed bag. Great for some, disappointing for others.

The movie is quite funny and even hilarious at times. Mr. Martin shines as a matter of fact and performs some of his funniest to date. What haunts him however is that, a good portion of the audience, namely fans and cult followers of the Sellers’ Inspector Clouseau, will come to theatres expecting, quite unreasonably if you think about it, a reincarnation of Peter Sellers, and for many this is the only reason why they came to the movie theatre in the first place, only to be disappointed that this is not the case.
