Although very early in the movie and delivered in a way that 99% of the population could not understand or assimilate, the introduction speech from V is extremely accurate and descriptive about who is and what are his motivations. But no one understood it so you still have to watch the rest of the movie and learn about this incredible character one step at a time. This is ironically brilliant!
If you are wondering what V said during his first encounter with EV the transcript is available under the video and before you go into it: know that you will add dozens of new words to you brain thesaurus, like “vouchsafing”. I still have no idea what it means but I’ll dig into it… someday.
One word for the speech: amazing.
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 a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone 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. [laughs] 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”.
