* Blink, and you'll miss it. When Finch tells his partner about the virus, he calls it the worst biological attack in the ''country's'' history. Almost 100000 people killed. Not world history, not European history, but English history. What happened to the rest of the world?

** Wars ''are'' frequently mentioned, so likely, a whole lot of the world is screwed out there. You think England's got it bad? Most likely, the other countries have no government, or are [[NukeEm gone.]]
* The film's V seems to have been given AdaptationalHeroism. However, the hostage early on, dressed in his outfit, was shot and killed in the comic, with no real indication that he's a hostage given by V. And it wouldn't be out of character for V to intend for the hostage to die...

* Remember V's speech over the news, saying how disappointed he was in humanity, and that he'd give then two years to shape up? [[OmnicidalManiac How is he the good guy again?]]

* I realised this at around 20 to 2 this morning—In the comic, when [[spoiler: Evey is imprisoned by V, she mentions in her narrative having an invasive search done of her genitalia. Now, this sounds nasty but not necessarily that bad until you remember that Valerie says in her letter that she hid a pencil "inside of her", which means that in the original prison, which means they weren't doing cavity checks to that extent, so it can't even be justified for realism's sake..]]

* V very well may be making up the story about the plague being created by the Norsefire government. He was horrifically treated in the extermination camps but the only person whose word we have to trust is his. Which, of course, is perfect because he's trying to teach us to trust no one completely.

Added DiffLines:

** And in English alphabet V is the '''5th''' letter starting from the end. Implying that V is Evey's polar opposite, anyone?

** I always figured he must be a drug addict of some sort. He lives in an underground bunker all by himself with everything he wants being transported to him, and probably is so paranoid and egomaniacal he takes something to deal with it. Which shows the main flaw of most dictatorships: creating a CultOfPersonality around guysthat qualify as TheDitz or TheCaligula.

** He's a [[{{Pun}} guy]] with a fondness for explosives going around London in a Guy Fawkes mask. The question about blowing up the Parliament was not ''if'', but ''when''.

* Now that Evey has taken V's mantle and chosen Dominic as the new apprentice....does that mean that she will also at one point viciously torture him in order to become ''free''? Just because she refuses to kill, that doesn't mean she refuses to do morally ambigious things....

to:

** She probably ''wouldn't'' need to do that to Dominic though (leaving aside whether she actually ''could'' or not). Remember, V wanted to open Evey's eyes to the way the world was under Norsefire, and to confront her with beautiful, scary freedom. But thanks to V, Dominic's actually living in that world now. No Norsefire, no architecture of social oppression, just a blank slate England. He's literally just lived through that experience.
