Sorry, I fear I am waxing poetic. Perhaps that has something to do with my just having returned from seeing V For Vendetta, and it is with no small amount of pleasure that I say I was pleasantly surprised. An excellent job, in spite of Natalie Portman's wooden performance. This is even in conjunction with my love of the original graphic novel. This offering from the Wachowskis officially lets them off the hook for the shambles they made of The Matrix.
