I think V for vendetta is very underrated, it was a small success (55 budget and 150 million box office , exactly like joker) and it’s one of the darkest and serious superhero movies. The cinematography was great , the shots were well done and dialogue too. That it makes different than other DC (yes I am looking at you watchmen) is that it was a perfect interpretation of the novel , none would have liked it if they went V full terrorist stuff. Making him an anti-hero was the right decision and the mask was well done.

The topic and the movie was written excellently , R rated too.

The Dystopian future topic looked real and the fight scenes were well done and followable. The movie is about an idea not about a terrorist , because V is an idea that’s the reason he doesn’t need a single line of backstory and needs to be ambiguous (looking at you Micheal Myers)

The acting was done by the entire cast and I am glad WB can give us some different CBMs , I would rather watch deadpool and v fot vendetta then usual “hero rises and defeat villain” boring story. Let me know what you think , For me it’s a bit underrated and is a top 10 cbm. Next time I’ll talk to The Wolverine which is underrated too.

Yes it was great. But I don't think it is underrated. No one downgraded and still downgrades it.

@im_late: no they don’t. Like Spider-Man 1 and X-Men OG/2 is very forgotten and lost and battles even thought it will age well considering no cgi and based on other stuff:

@jb681131: I think it’s underrated ,one of the best DC Movies and one of the best creative movies with a small budget 55M , during a time when R rated superhero’s were all flop and critical panned movies.

It was the first time an R-Rated superhero both had great audience success and good critical reception and decent box office: then it comes watchmen

Definitely not underrated I don't think I've ever seen anyone say they disliked it, I even had to study it in my English class in year 11 along side Animal Farm. I think you may mean it's overlooked.

Interestingly enough, I didn't think much of it in when I first watched it, but it is now one of my favourite movies of all time after rewatching it on the 5th of November a couple of years ago.

It's one of my top three superhero movies tied with The Dark Knight, just below Watchmen.

Agreed. It's one of the best CB based movies and people hardly bring it up in discussions.

@the_agent_of_chaos: Show me how people hate it.

I have no idea how do we objectively measure a movie underrated-ness. A poll?

How in the hell is this underrated? It even inspired a political movement and still revered today as one of the best CBMs.

Being old and forgotten is not the same as being underrated, people still think of it highly, people just don't talk about a 14 year old movie a ton
