A call has gone out to all NYC anarchist-types to protest the watered-down version of V that Warners has produced.

I'm almost tempted to join them. I haven't actually seen the V for Vendetta film (and given its reviews, I'm not about to), but it was a dead cert that Time-Warner were never going to lend their name to a film with V's anarchist ethos.

It's ironic that in the comic book, V himself infiltrates a media conglomerate of sorts (the state-run broadcasting company known as The Mouth) in order to disseminate his message to the people.

Sounda like a pr ballyhoo protest like in the film Matine depicting thinly disguised Wm Castle hiting protestors to generate PR for his B-film.

They left that in there. I actually enjoyed the movie. Being....well, not an Anarchist, I wasn't offended by it.
