    I thought the movie was most enjoyable, one of my favorite top 5 movies. I thought the character V was very charismatic. Soundtrack was just as good as the movie, love it, love it, love it. The soundtrack also ranks high with me as well.

    I loved the movie and the soundtrack too. It is amazing, only no credits music, and no 1812 overture. (or, if it's there, i haven't found it.)
