Evey Hammond is a fictional character and the protagonist of the comic book series, V for . Portman first met director James McTeigue while filming Star Wars : Episode II – Attack of the Clones: he was working as assistant director.
The only right decision is a vow of vengeance that is held not merely in appearance, but as a true war that if pursued to the end one day will free those who stand firm and stay true to virtuous actions even in the event that all is lost. Fawkes failed at his attempt to blow up the parliment building.
It was called the Gun Powder Treason. If you google him or wikipedia him you can read about what truly happened. Izzy It is amazing how many people make reference to this movie but miss the most important quote from it.
Jacks Wasted Life thats what america tries to be. The problem is that its really the media who the government fear, because the media controls the people. Pheonix said this on August 3, at 3: But of course, the point does have some validity, in the united states, there is no control over the media due to the first ammendment. A vaudevillian veteran said this on January 7, at 1: Everytime I see it I get amazed once again.
It seems strange that my life should end in such a terrible place, but for three years, I had roses, and apologised to no-one. I shall die here. Every inch of me will perish. Every inch but one. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
I hope that, whoever you are, you escape this place. I hope that the world turns, and that things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you.
With all my heart, I love you. Delia Surridge[ edit ] [Notes from her covert journal, whom Finch reads] May 23rd.
My first batch of subjects arrived today, and I have to admit that I am very excited. This could be the dawn of a new age. Nuclear power is meaningless in a world where a virus can kill an entire population and leave its wealth intact Commander Prothero toured the lab with a priest, Father Lilliman, who I was told is here to monitor for rules and rights violations.
It made me nervous, but the commander assured me there wouldn't be a problem. I kept wondering if these people knew how they might be helping their country, if they would act any differently. They're so weak and pathetic. They never look you in the eye. I find myself hating them. Of the original four dozen, over 75 percent are now deceased. No controllable pattern has yet emerged. There is one case that continues to give me hope. He exhibits none of the immune system pathologies the other subjects developed.
I've discovered cellular anomalies in his blood that I've been unable to categorise. The mutations seem to have triggered the abnormal development of basic kinaesthesia and reflexes. The subject said he could no longer remember who he was or where he was from.
Whoever he was, he is now the key to our dream, and the hope that all of this will not have been in vain. It started last night, around midnight. The first explosions tore open the entire medical section. All my work, gone. I was trying to understand how it could've happened when I saw him. The man from room five. He looked at me. There were no eyes. But I know he was looking at me because I felt it. Lewis Prothero[ edit ] First BTN Speech[ edit ] So I read that the former United States is so desperate for medical supplies that they have allegedly sent several containers filled with wheat and tobacco.
A gesture, they said, of good will. You want to know what I think? Well, you're listening to my show, so I will assume you do. I think it's high time we let the colonies know what we really think of them. I think it's payback time for a little tea party they threw for us a few hundred years ago. I say we go down to those docks tonight and dump that crap where everything from the Ulcered Sphincter of Arse-erica belongs. Who's bloody with me? Did you like that? I mean, what else can you say?
Here was a country that had everything, absolutely everything, and now, 20 years later, is what? The world's biggest leper colony.

Let me say that again: It wasn't the war they started. It wasn't the plague they created. No-one escapes their past. You think He's not up there?
You think He's not watching over this country? How else can you explain it? He tested us, but we came through. We did what we had to do. I saw it all. Immigrants, Muslims, homosexuals, terrorists, disease-ridden degenerates. They had to go! Strength through unity, unity through faith! I'm a God-fearing Englishman and I am god-damn proud of it! The only part of his second BTN speech ever seen or heard.
I'll tell you what I know. I know this is not a man.
A man does not wear a mask. A man does not threaten innocent civilians. He's what every gutless, freedom-hating terrorist is: First part of his third BTN speech. There will be no negotiation, Roger.
When I arrive in the morning, the Paddy will be gone. I'm looking at the tape right now, and he has no idea how to light me. My nose looks like Big fucking Ben! Listen to me, you bleeding sod. England prevails because I say it does! And so does every lazy cunt on this show, and that includes you! Find another DOP, or find yourself another job! Phone call to Roger Dascombe I'll tell you what I wish: I wish I'd been there. I wish I'd had the chance for a face-to-face.

Just one chance, that's all I need. Second part of his third BTN speech, before V breaks into his home This so-called "V" and his accomplice, Evey Hammond, neo-demagogues, spouting their message of hate.
A delusional and aberrant voice, delivering a terrorist's ultimatum. An ultimatum that was met with swift and surgically precise justice. And the moral of this story, ladies and gentlemen, is: This violent and unparalleled assault on our security will not go undefended.
Our enemy is an insidious one, seeking to divide us and destroy the very foundation of our great nation. Tonight, we must remain steadfast. We must remain determined. But most of all, we must remain united. Those caught tonight in violation of curfew will be considered in league with our enemy and prosecuted as a terrorist without leniency or exception.
Tonight, I give you my most solemn vow: Dialogue[ edit ] There are no coincidences, Delia. Only the illusion of coincidence. I suddenly had this feeling that everything was connected. It was like I could see the whole thing; one long chain of events that stretched back to before Larkhill. I felt like I could see everything that had happened, and everything that was going to happen… With so much chaos, someone will do something stupid. And when they do, things will turn nasty.
And then, Sutler will be forced do the only thing he knows how to do. At which point, all V needs to do is keep his word. What you have are bullets and the hopes that when your guns are empty, I'm no longer standing. Because if I am, you'll all be dead before you've reloaded. I can assure you, I mean you no harm. Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask. Well, I can see that.
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. But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona. I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom may I ask am I speaking? E-V — of course you are. What do you mean by that? It means I, like Goddo not play with diceand do not believe in coincidence. Gentlemen, you have had four hours, you had better have results.
The Bailey area is quarantined, and all significant witnesses have been detained. A recording device was found wired into the central emergency broadcast system. Add it to the blacklist. I never want to hear that music again. We also doubled our random sweeps and are monitoring a lot of phone surveillance, indicating a high percentage of conversation concerned with the explosion.
Mr Dascombe, what are we doing about that? We're calling it an "emergency demolition". We have spin coverage on the network and throughout the InterLink, and several experts have been lined up to testify against the Bailey's structural integrity.
I want Prothero to speak tonight on the dangers of these old buildings and how we must avoid clinging to the edifice of a decadent past. He should conclude that the New Bailey will become the symbol of our time and the future that our conviction has rewarded us.
Our surveillance cameras captured several images of the terrorist, though the mask obviously makes retinal identification impossible. We also managed to get a photo of the girl that Creedy's men were detaining. Who is she, Mr Finch? Not sure, yet, sir, but we're working on several leads. We located the fireworks launch and found traces of the explosives used at both sides.
Unfortunately, it appears that despite the massive amount of sophistication, these devices were homemade with over-the-counter chemicals, making them very difficult to trace. Whoever he is, Chancellor, he is very good. Spare us your professional annotations, Mr Finch. Gentlemen, this is a test. Moments such as these are matters of faith.
To fail is to invite doubt into everything we believe, everything that we have fought for. Doubt will plunge this country back into chaos, which is the last thing we want, and I will not let that happen. Gentlemen, I want this terrorist found, and I want him to understand what terror really means.
You think people will buy this? This is the BTN. Our job is to report the news, not fabricate it. That's the government's job. Her parents were political activists. They were detained when she was What happened to her?
We're going to need backup, but keep it minimal. You sure about that, sir?

I just want a chance to talk to her before she disappears into one of Creedy's black bags. What is this place? I call it the Shadow Gallery. Oh, here and there. Most of it from the vaults of the Ministry of Objectionable Materials. You can't steal from the censor; I merely reclaimed them.

God, if they ever find this place. I suspect if they do find this place, a few bits of art will be the least of my worries. You mean, after what you've done? God, what have I done? I Maced that detective.
Why did I do that? You did what you thought was right.

I shouldn't have done that. I must have been out of my mind. Is that what you really think, or what they would want you to think?
I think I should go. May I ask where? I have to go home. You said they were looking for you. If they know where you work, they certainly know where you live. I could stay with them. I'm afraid that won't work either. Now, you have to understand, Evey. I don't want this for either of us, but I couldn't see any other way. You were unconscious, and I had to make a decision. If I had left you there, right now, you'd be in one of Creedy's interrogation cells. They'd imprison you, torture you, and, in all probability, kill you in the pursuit of finding me.
After what you did, I couldn't let that happen, so I picked you up and carried you to the only place I knew you'd be safe: I won't tell anyone, I swear.
You know you can trust me.
I'm sorry, but I can't take that risk. But I don't even know where this is. We could be anywhere. You know it's underground. You know the colour of the stone. That'd be enough for a clever man. What are you saying? That I have to stay here? Only until I'm done. After the 5th, I no longer think it'll matter.
You mean, a year from now? I have to stay here for a year? I didn't know what else to do. You should have left me alone! I just wanted to apologise for my reaction last night. I hope I didn't put you off your appetite. It's just — are you all right? Can I ask what happened?
A long time ago. Ancient history for some. Not really very good table conversation.
