** A lot of people think of anarchists as bad guys, like how V sees himself. However, V figures that there are better anarchists in the world, who will solve the problems themselves. Also, this entire question is more or less a cheap shot at anarchic philosophy. It's quite realistically portrayed.

** Who said it's a willing workforce? Nobody says Norsefire wouldn't ''make'' people work for them.



* When the civilian surround Westminster you can clearly see from the aerial shots that they right up at the perimeter of the building on Bridge Street and St Margaret Street. The explosion is quite big. Anyone at the front would of been killed by flying debris.

** Because of the fact that if it did, it would ruin the film's ending. Seeing the revolution's frontrunners dying because of debris in the front would have just looked extremely ''stupid'' even though it's probably in-character for V.



*** "Rockwood's" story, and the journal from the female scientist would say otherwise. The journal says V was the one case that gave her hope that all of her research wouldn't be lost, then in Rockwood's story he talks about how they developed the virus from V's blood. Even if that were true that would mean they were starting over after V and that doesn't make sense how they came into power in the first place to round up the people.

** Simple answer is that they were already in power to a certain extent, just not in complete power. Sutler, Creedy, and others were all government or military officials with enough pull to get the Larkhill project up and running and cover it up, but they didn't run the country entirely. The country was apparently already going pretty far right with Sutler's conservative party sweeping elections, but it seems before the St. Mary's incident it was at least somewhat divided.

\n** You're mistaken -- the St. Mary's virus is not what they were developing in the camp V was in. They were trying to do other things, then that research was failed and lost when V burned the place down.

* So i didn't see anyone mention this, although i didn't read every entry, (please delete if this has been covered) the major problem i have with this movie is the timeline. So there is a political power that rounds up people to make a biological weapon, then uses that biological weapon to become a powerful political power that can round people up to make a biological weapon... it seems to be a circular plot hole that can't be resolved?

resolved? This is quite plain when V talks to the police, and when the actresses story is told, the timeline falls apart, the biological agent is needed by Adam Sutler to claim power, but couldn't have had the power necessary to create the weapon to claim power. (sorry if i'm repeating myself) One the surface of the story it makes sense, but when you put the timeline of both the story Rockwood tells the police and the Actresses story, it falls apart.

The allegory here is how Hitler came to power, but it would be like the Nazi party rounding up Jews and killing them before they had even claimed the ruling party in the German government.
