I was really enjoying V for Vendetta, in the “this is a dystopic world represented through a graphic novel through a movie” sort of way. It was a moving, meaningful, and well-told story, and Natalie Portman wasn’t overly irritating. Hugo Weaving was awesome.
But, by god, that was the worst post-ending to a movie, ever. Everything’s going great, the big explosions happen, and then Natalie Portman makes me want to die a very fast death by ruining the moment, and then not stopping. And then all the dead people are back alive. I cannot even imagine a way to have made the end of the film worse, it was if there was a brainstorming session where the members were asked to come up with the most dissatisfying and moronic ending to a good film, and then implement their solution.
