V: [during his BTN broadcast] Today, however, is a day, sadly, no longer remembered. So, I thought we could mark this November the 5th by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. Of course, there are those who do not want us to speak. I suspect, even now, orders are being shouted into telephones and men with guns are racing to this station. But regardless of what weapons they try to use to effect silence, words will always retain their power. Words are the means to meaning, and for some, the annunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country.
-Who is he?
V: The only verdict is vengeance, a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain.
V:A revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having!
[after a hail of gunfire doesn't stop V]
Creedy: Die! Die! Why won't you die?... Why won't you die?
V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.
这部电影像是在叙述一个古老的故事，故事里充满了伤痛与挣扎，却因为仇恨漫延的沉默中凝聚的力量，而显得沉稳，从容不迫。似乎从一开始，V在电视台里用轻松的语调向整个极权政府挑战，所有人包括我，都开始意识到，change we need，and change we can。
Sutler: Gentlemen, I want this terrorist found... and I want him to understand what *terror* really means.
V:Violence can be used for good.
Evey Hammond: No one will ever forget that night and what it meant for this country. But I will never forget the man and what he meant to me.
Evey:Because he cared more about revenge than he did about her.
Evey Hammond: Who are you?
V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask.
Evey Hammond: Well I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
Evey Hammond: I don't even know what you really look like.
[Evey tries to remove V's mask]
V: [V stops her] Evey, please. There is a face beneath this mask but it's not me. I'm no more that face than I am the muscles beneath it or the bones beneath them.
Evey Hammond: I understand.
V: Thank you.
当Evey得知自己所承受的折磨竟是来自V，她歇斯底里地喊出：Why?Leave me alone!I hate you!而V也开始嘶喊，嘶喊出他那被复仇之火时刻灼烧着的内心，他说：That's it! See, at first, I thought it was hate too. Hate was all I knew. It built my world, imprisoned me, taught me how to eat, how to drink, how to breathe.I thought I'd die with all the hate in my veins.But then something happened.It happened to me just as it happened to you. 可是，复仇之火亦无法烧坏爱之花，反而会为之而熄灭。
Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose. So let me simply add that it”s my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
V: Certainly there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable.
当V再次向Evey发出舞蹈邀请时，尽管是在革命前夜，但他仍诗意地说出这样的句子来，“A revolution without dancing is a revolution not won'th having.”而Evey的一句“I'd love to.”则让V的人生不再遗憾。所以，V华丽地于万人之前，上演一出名为希望的舞台剧。
V是个很有格调的人。Evey在V的豪宅中醒来时，点唱机里正放着Julie London的Cry Me A River，性感而又神秘。顺着Evey的视角，我们看到了一个博物馆似的豪宅。堆满房间的古书，满墙的名画，各种现代艺术品，古典的欧式家具。这就是V的藏身地，有个很浪漫的名字——The Shadow Gallery。V会煎蛋，喜欢《基督山伯爵》，喜欢在杀人后留下一朵艳丽的红玫瑰。
Evey Hammond: My father was a writer. You would've liked him. He used to say that artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up.
V: A man after my own heart.
Vendetta —— I dare do all that may become a man who dares more is none.
这段V的开场白真是集装逼之大成，狂霸酷炫拽帅到没朋友！刨去花哨精巧到令人深深为英文的魅力所折服的“V”字头文字游戏，雨果·维文恐怕是电影史上台词含金量最高的演员了，《Martix》和《V》里几乎每一句台词，经由他迷人的嗓音说出，都极富哲理和韵味。还有那句“ Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea. And ideas are bulletproof. ”，不知鼓（shan）舞（dong）了多少志（fen）士（qing）。
V: People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
V:No. No more tricks. No more lies.Only truth.
-He was Edmond Dantés... and he was my father. And my mother... my brother... my friend. He was you... and me. He was all of us.
Evey Hammond [voiceover] Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot... But what of the man? I know his name was Guy Fawkes and I know, in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. But who was he really? What was he like? We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I've witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I've seen people kill in the name of them, and die defending them... but you cannot kiss an idea, cannot touch it, or hold it... ideas do not bleed, they do not feel pain, they do not love... And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man... A man that made me remember the Fifth of November. A man that I will never forget.
Valerie: I know there's no way I can convince you this is not one of their tricks, but I don't care. I am me. My name is Valerie. I don't think I'll live much longer, and I wanted to tell someone about my life. This is the only autobiography that I will ever write and God, I'm writing it on toilet paper. I was born in Nottingham in 1985. I don't remember much of those early years, but I do remember the rain. My grandmother owned a farm in Tottle Brook and she used to tell me that God was in the rain. I passed my 11 Plus and went to girls' grammar. It was at school that I met my first girlfriend. Her name was Sarah. It was her wrists. They were beautiful. I thought we would love each other forever. I remember our teacher telling us that it was an adolescent phase that people outgrew. Sarah did. I didn't. In 2002, I fell in love with a girl named Christina. That year I came out to my parents. I couldn't have done it without Chris holding my hand. My father wouldn't look at me. He told me to go and never come back. My mother said nothing. But I'd only told them the truth. Was that so selfish? Our integrity sells for so little, but it is all we really have. It is the very last inch of us. But within that inch we are free. I'd always known what I wanted to do with my life and in 2015 I starred in my first film, The Salt Flats. It was the most important role of my life. Not because of my career, but because that was how I met Ruth. The first time we kissed I knew I never wanted to kiss any other lips but hers again. We moved to a small flat in London together. She grew Scarlet Carsons for me in our window box and our place always smelt of roses. Those were the best years of my life.
Finch: Who was he?
Evey Hammond: He was Edmond Dantés... and he was my father. And my mother... my brother... my friend. He was you... and me. He was all of us.
Lewis Prothero: Strength through unity! Unity through faith!
克里蒂将苏特勒带到了V的面前，而他那副求饶的嘴脸恰恰与主教一模一样，一样的让人生厌。而后V并未打算将自己交到克里蒂这个刽子手手上，所以他说：No, you have bullets and the hope that when your guns are empty I'm no longer standing, because if I am,you'll all be dead before you've reloaded.
V: More than 400 years ago a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of government remain unknown to you, then I suggest you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked.
Evey:He used to say artists used lies to tell the truth while
politicians used them
to cover the truth up.
V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking on the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. There is an idea, Mr. Creedy - and ideas are bulletproof.
V:Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
当Evey看了《基督山伯爵》后说了“Because he cared more about revenge than he did about her.”时，我相信，V的心里早已触动，但他用复仇之火伪装自己，犹如那不能摘下的面具。
V:And thus I clothe my naked villainy with old odd ends stolen forth from holy writ and seem a saint, when most I play the devil.
Evey:He said if we ran away, they would win.
当Evey在雨中说出“God is in the rain.”时，V在她身上看到了昔日浴火重生的自己，但他的复仇已不再是他的唯一目的。希望的种子根植于复仇怒火烧过的沃土，爱的雨露使之萌芽。
- It is you. - The Ghost of Christmas Past.
V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what... and what I am is a man in a mask.
V:Oh, not tonight, Bishop.Not tonight.
Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici!藉由真理的力量，我在有生之年，得以征服万物！——《浮士德》
Victory —— People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
V:There are no coincidences, Delia.Only the illusion of coincidence.I have another rose.And this one is for you.
It is not my sword, Mondego, but your past that disarmed you.
