I hope we get around to reviewing my dessert based remake:
V for Vienetta
... sequel to P For Pancetta.

About this. I really used to love this film. I'm just not sure I do anymore. I'm not sure if it's me or that the film hasn't aged well. Probably me. Regardless, I don't think I'll be upgrading my blu on this occasion. Thanks for the review, Cas.

Certainly the 'twist' midsection feels very dragged out, and ironically torturous, when you know the end. I can't remember whether I guessed it first time out but it feels extremely obvious which kinda undermines what the character is going through. Nonetheless it's got some nice ideas, but yes, I do see why some would favour just returning to the comic rather than this adaptation.

Watched it on Monday, I had no memory of seeing before even though I definitely had the R1 blu ray.
Thought the film was excellent (if slightly odd), the video was great and the Atmos track even better.
Oh and the Titans of Cult set is a beauty.

Yes, that is the first steelbook in a LONG time I've been really wowed by.

I love this film, and I'm surprised and delighted to find it on 4k, and a good one at that! As for the twist, I did guess the first time round but I think it still works. The character doesn't know what's going on (and you wouldn't expect them to), and the point is it doesn't matter. Even when they do know they are changed by the event regardless (some changes can't be un done it seems....) it's also a clever way of telling about the origins of V.

Thanks for the review - I have this on HDDVD and not watched it in years....might put it on my rental list. I do remember his alliterative speech at the start of the movie and remember loving it at the time, thinking it was really clever (never knew so many words with "v" LOL).

It's a film I have enjoyed more on repeat viewings. I watched the bluray just a few months ago, so will keep the 4K on my shelf until sometime next year. (I got the Warner Brothers store box of tat version)

Thanks for the Review Cas. Not so long ago that I watched this but interested in this Premium version. Added to my rental list - the price of 4K is too rich for my pocket right now, even with such a delicious topping. And I agree that the filling in the middle is a bit much for my taste.
