** [[DragonInChief Peter Creedy]] is the head of The [[StateSec Finger]], Norsefire's SecretPolice. Creedy's agents seem to have free range to do almost anything they want, including raping women found violating curfew. Creedy's agents arrest anyone who is deemed a threat to the Norsefire regime. Creedy is something of a {{sadist}}, sometimes violently beating some of the political prisoners he arrests. However, the [[MoralEventHorizon worst thing Creedy has done]], is masterminding the aforementioned Three Waters Incident, in which he launches a biological attack on the UK that leaves 80,000 people dead and [[FalseFlagOperation allows Norsefire to seize power]]. In the end, Creedy decides to [[TheStarscream kill Sutler and seize power for himself]].

Added DiffLines:

** Many contemporary British viewers felt insulted at the idea that they would vote for ObviouslyEvil [[PuttingOnTheReich Nazi expies]] in the face of terrorism. A decade later, however, a sizable chunk of Britons voted in favor of ''Brexit'' which was largely motivated by racism and encouraged by far-right leaning political groups.

* LoveItOrHateIt: The movie has a very sizable fandom, especially among anarchist and other protest movements. On the other hand a lot of people hate it for the memetic mutation it inspired. A much smaller group also hates the film for being a poor adaptation of the comic in their eyes.

** The robber who shouts [[Music/SexPistols "Anarchy in the UK!"]], because of course they just can't let that line away.

* {{Narm}}: The government leader and blatant Hitler {{expy}} is named Adam ''Susan''. [[SarcasmMode Heil Susan!]] Changing it to "Sutler" in the film seems [[{{Anvilicious}} overwrought]], but at least it actually sounds ''menacing''. Likely intentional, as Susan himself is not a very impressive person.

* AuthorAppeal: Alan Moore has long been identified as a sympathizer of Anarchism. It shows here.



** Natalie Portman's English accent. Some found it atrocious and unbelievable. Others felt it was a decent effort.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatAnIdiot: Gordon's little stunt where he mocks Chancellor Sutler in a comedy sketch. This was a grave miscalculation on his part, and he really should have realized that mocking the most powerful man in the country when there is a terrorist loose causing some high tensions may not be the best idea.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: Early on in the comic, what does the Voice of Fate tell its citizens? To "seize the initiative and [[{{UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump}} make Britain great again."]]

to:

* MagnificentBastard: V himself, obviously, who almost single handedly destroys the Norsefire party when it had gone unopposed for years. To a lesser extent, Helen Heyer, who opposes V.
V and makes a pretty good power play for herself near the end.
