If a superhero is defined by his or her acceptance into society, then VENDETTA is about as anti-superhero as you can get, with its action-packed and very cynical view of a dystopian future and references to British history and the Guy Fawkes legend. Natalie Portman sports a fairly hot shaved head in this rousing film, adapted by the Wachowski brothers (of MATRIX fame) from the graphic novel. “Remember, remember, the fifth of November…”
Don’t miss comic-to-film misadventure GHOST WORLD, airing on Sundance Channel this month.
