A very good movie of a very good comic book mini series
This is an excellent film based on a 1984 comic book written by Alan Moore. Moore wrote V for Vendetta about Ms. Thatcher and apathetic societies who do nothing when their government gets out of line. The Wachowski's did take some events from modern times and incorporate it into their story, but it is still based on a retired politician that retired close to 20 years ago.
Individuals need to stop making it about themselves and the US (since it's not about it regardless of what you might believe). Considering the comic was written over 20 years ago I do not see how individuals (such as one particular person in the US military)can view it as propaganda designed to attack whatever they decide is the "truth".
The fact is, it is an extremely cerebral movie that looks at what happens in society when people do nothing, and whether the ideals of one person can make others rise up in the face of tyranny. The action sequences were excellent, acting was amazing and the storyline based loosely on the comic did a great job considering it was only 2 hrs in length.
I recommend this to anyone that wishes to be entertained on a physical and mental level.
