* TheExtremistWasRight: The film presents V as more of a good guy and Norsefire and 100% evil, resulting in a more black and white view.

The title character is V (Creator/HugoWeaving), a government experiment GoneHorriblyWrong. Armed with extraordinary intellect and fighting skills, along with some home-made high explosives, he escapes from the facility that created him and sets about committing terrorist attacks against the fascist government of Britain. He is TheFaceless throughout the film, wearing a Guy Fawkes mask in order to conceal his true identity. The fact that Guy Fawkes was arrested for trying to blow up the king has something to do with it, of course.

** CrapsaccharineWorld: Especially compared to the visual novel's post-nuclear wasteland, Britain in the film is a seemingly lively and prosperous place (for example, while in the VN the government gets rid of the elderly, a retirement house is shown several times in the film). But it's still ruled by a totalitarian Nazi-esque party.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: The Norsefire Party are a totalitarian regime in the movie just like in the comic, however in the latter, certain members had sympathetic traits including the ''BigBad'' of all people, though not enough to be considered redeemable. The movie does away with them entirely.

** Later, when the police realize the man they thought was V was a security guard and the ''real'' V rises behind them, an officer has a look of complete horror on his face.

Added DiffLines:

-->"God is in the rain."


Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfCool[=/=]RuleOfSymbolism: V's (impressively large) line of dominoes ties in perfectly with Finch's "everything's connected" speech, but there doesn't seem to be much in-universe justification for V doing it. Unless the ever theatrical V decided to invoke the symbolism anyway.


Added DiffLines:

* YouAreAlreadyDead: In V's final conversation with Delia Surridge, he reveals he's already given her a lethal injection
-->'''V:''' I killed you ten minutes ago, ''(reveals syringe)'' while you slept.
