The reviews are rolling in for "V"

“V for Vendetta,” based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore and David Lloyd, arrives in theaters Friday, with some sneak previews late tonight. Moore, as you may have heard, doesn’t want his name associated with the movie in any way: He’s not exactly pleased about Hollywood adaptations of his work. Some critics are definite fans of this latest movie, though. Chris Hewitt of Knight Ridder Newspapers calls it “provocative, exciting, funny, beautiful, disturbing, moving and stylish.” Jack Garner of Gannett Newspapers says “V for Vendetta” is “undeniably engrossing” and Carla Meyer of The Sacramento Bee lauds it as “a cracking good comic-book tale.” But Bob Strauss of the Los Angeles Daily News notes that “disarray takes over the film’s script in the final act,” a complaint echoed by several critics. Look for Roger Ebert’s review in Friday’s Go!

Will you give a review of V? I rather read a review by a comic book fan than a movie critic who have no idea who Alan Moore is in the first place.

Not sure how soon I'll get to the theater, but if I do see it, I'll be happy to share my opinion. Or if you see it, send in your review and I'll post it
