...V for Vendetta (2005)

V for Vendetta is a discombulated slip of a movie that never takes off - though not for lack of trying. Natalie Portman straps on a crooked British accent and does her best to transport us into this quasi-political/science fiction send-up of a tyrannical, dictatorial future - to no avail. Maybe writers Larry Wachowski and Andy Wachowski should've directed the film (as they did The Matrix) or pulled in the reins on first-time director James McTiegue - at the least.
