No time for Vendetta? – Come on
First of all, this has to be said – ‘cmon bangalore. show some taste.’ Two reasons why I am saying this – V for Vendetta has released in Bangalore. Not in Chennai. Where it has a huge fan-base for the Wachowskis. I couldn’t get tickets during the entire first week of the release of Matrix Reloaded. I remember waiting with a huge crowd to watch the zero hour worldwide release of Matrix Revolutions. And I did catch it with a full Satyam theater. Unlike PVR Cinemas yesterday which had barely any people. Reason two – the movie is fun.
Suprisingly, the movie reminded me of Fight Club. Though, there isn’t much common to both – on paper or plot. Both movies ended with bombing. Freestyle ‘terrorism’. Good dialogue. The only difference – Fight Club was unapologetic while V is talkative. It needs its reasons. Spare the philosophical talk which goes over the top sometimes, add a little more subtlety to the performances and the movie could have been much greater than the sum of its parts.
It was a little disconcerting to see PVR not even half full for the show. Though this was on a Monday, I am sure when that movie comes out it’ll be packed. Every Monday.
