At about the 7 minute mark in V For Vendetta, the masked guy has a few lines of dialogue almost entirely comprised of words beginning with the letter vee. I started laughing and had a hard time stopping. The film had some pretty shots, some good surround sound action and Sinead O'Connor took over for Natalie Portman about halfway through. You don't get that in every movie. I know where they got the masks but where did everyone pick up the hats and capes?
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was funnier than V but intentionally so which made for a more enjoyable ride. It was a bit of an oddball offering with some really good work by Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer. It seemed a bit too clever for its own good from time to time which slowed the storytelling down but was very enjoyable just the same. I tend to enjoy a film that colours outside the lines here and there.
Happy New Year. Or is it?
