V for Vendetta may be an "uncompromising vision of the future" as envisioned by two whacky brothers, but it's also a grotesquely romanticized vision of terrorism (V is never shown killing innocent civilians, for example) and a daft study in moral equivalence. To get such a poor product from such interesting source material suggests that in order for the filmmakers to satisfy their personal political fetishes, a number of unfortunate compromises had to be made.
