'''V''': Of course you can, I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I am merely commenting on the paradox of asking a masked man ''who'' he is.

* AdaptationalWimp: The movie turns Gordon Dietrich into a chubby, middle-aged comedian (played by StephenFry, no less) when he was a younger, more physically imposing career criminal in the book. Then again, the film also has him defying the Party's laws by hiding banned books and films in his house, and openly mocking Chancellor Sutler on his show, which is ''far'' more badass than anything the character did in the book.

* ViewersAreMorons:
** There are things that were alluded to in the book that the movie feels the need to state outright. For example, in the book, when V is discussing "Vi veri veniversum vivus vici," he just says that the quote is from Dr. John Faust and that [[DealWithTheDevil "he made a deal, too."]] In the movie, on the other hand, V says it's from Faust and Evey expositions, "That's about trying to cheat the devil, isn't it?"
** The movie also changes Adam Susan's name to Adam Sutler; apparently it was assumed that the audience was to stupid to be able to make the Hitler connection otherwise.

* SocietyIsToBlame: During his speech to the public, V bluntly blames them for allowing Norsefire to come to power, regardless of the circumstances. Then he offers them the chance to fix it by joining him next year for Parliament's destruction.



* ThanatosGambit: As his final stroke, V convinces Cready to turn on Sutler, and in exchange V will give himself up. V does this because he could never get to Sutler otherwise, and Cready wouldn't turn on Sutler for anything less. [[spoiler:When the time comes, Cready delivers, but V wears a BulletproofVest so he'll live long enough to kill Cready in turn.]]



* TooDumbToLive: Gordon Dietrich switches out the state-approved script for his show with one mocking the Chancellor. While (nearly) everyone loves it and it's a smash hit, complete with V taking part in the fun, said Chancellor is the ruler of a totalitarian society, a bigot, a zealot, and a complete monster who is willing to abuse his vast power for the pettiest of reasons. He boasts that the worst that will happen is a fine and he'll be forced to write a letter of apology. It's hinted from earlier comments to Evey that this might be an intentional SuicideByCop.

* WeAllLiveInAmerica: Mostly averted (like V saying "lift" instead of "elevator") but not always -- several uses of "cop" which is generally an Americanism (Brits prefer "copper"), Finch pronouncing lever as leh-ver instead of lee-ver. Additionally, Lewis Prothero was based more on American television pundits (like BillOReilly) rather than anything off British TV. The colors of the national postal carrier are based on USPS rather than Royal Mail. In the freight yard a bell is heard from a moving locomotive, not a UK requirement.
