The 50 Best Comic Book Movies

V for Vendetta

Director: James McTeigue
Year: 2006
While this adaptation strays pretty far from the anarchic politics of Alan Moore and David Lloyd's brilliant original comic, the look and performances are right on target. The incredible centerpiece of the movie (Natalie Portman being broken down through psychological torture) is right out of the book, and Hugo Weaving steals the show by managing to convey emotion through a Guy Fawkes mask.
