V for Vendetta
V for Vendetta DVD - 2006 | Widescreen ed.

I enjoyed the film unto a point. Where it started to loose it's appeal was when people of religious belief were portrayed as intolerant fascist zealots, out to secure their regime and uphold their views through persecution and execution. Their message is if you're not with us, you're against us. They also abuse their power to take advantage of poor inocent women out after curfew.

The movie may hold sway with people who sympathise with alternative lifestyles, but it ways in dangerously close to the intolerance portrayed by the religious fanatics. To the point where if you're not with us then you're against us. So I ask who is the more tolenrant? Where do we draw the line and who decides where that line is drawn? The small special interest group with a loud voice or the rest of the populace who know and recognise what's going on?
