Terrorist use fear as a weapon. He does this, therefor he is a terrorist.

He also uses truth.

Terrorist yes. But just because the terrorist label holds a bad name doesnt mean he wasnt within the right.

He was a revolutionary.

Nah, he didn't threaten innocent civilians. He only killed corrupt fascists.
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

Yes. But he's still a good guy. How about the Rebel Alliance in Star Wars?

technically he is still a terrorist no matter who he kills aa he uses terror to achive his aims . thnis said because he is a terrorist doesnt mean his reasoning or actions are wrong and unjustified or that he is nessasary an evil being
#14
I can't remember if he pulls it off or not. I know he's based off Guy Fawkes, but I can't remember if he actually succeeded in the movie. If he did, he's a revolutionary. You're only a terrorist until you win.
#15
Of course he's a terrorist, that is the basis of the character. But not all terrorists are bad, as is the theme of the movie.
My sig used to be so awesome it got me banned
#16
Technically the government in the movie was also one massive terrorist organization, like all governments usually are.

"One man's terrorist, is another man's saint." Anywho, no way is V is a terrorist. If anything he is the most sane one in the movie besides Natalie Portman's character.

Omg we must be twins, I thought the same thing when I read the title before clicking the link.

You could use the dictionary to label him a terrorist, but he was in fact a revolutionist.

The Truth?

How about the Truth of Allah? Osama uses that too right?

Most sane? He walked into a trap knowing that he would get shot multiple times with only a steel breast plate to protect him. HE KNEW HE WAS GONNA DIE!!! I think that defines him as mentally unstable. Or at least the US courts would define him as mentally insane. And his sentence would get mitigated. Duh.


But Look People

This move is not about terrorists. It is about juxtaposing Facism and Anarchy. Neither is actually a good thing. The point is balance.

A balance in the force preferably. Or my morning diet.

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.

By definition he is a terrorist, but that doesn't mean I don't agree with what he does.

Also, don't post if you have only seen the movie. The politics were pretty toned down from the comic.

its based on whose standpoint you look at
from the state- hes a terrorist
from his followers- hes a revolutionary
from civilians- probably somewhere inbetween

its all about power. he who is in power writes history.

think of it this way- had America lost the revolutionary war and were, to this day, under the control of Great Britain, Washington would be remembered as a terrorist

The majority of people here won't have read the book. I, for one, didn't even know there was a V For Vendetta book, if I had known I would have read it before I started watching this. I will hunt for the book tomorrow.

yes, hes a terrorist. but terrorist is one of those words that can be said differently depending on the speaker's perspective. i agree with him, so i might call him a "freedom fighter" or "revolutionary" or something. but objectively, both terrorists and revolutionaries are the same thing.

just like people i consider terrorists would call themselves freedom fighters. theres plenty of other examples. in the iraq war, we call ourselves "liberators" and the iraqis may call us "occupiers", but it is the same thing, just from a different point of view.
