In the movie Mr. Creedy says: "You've got nothing but your bloody knives and your fancy karate gimmicks. We have guns." This line is similar to one from Mr. Almond in the book, a character that was excluded from the movie. See more »
The plot of Guy Fawkes was not a bid for freedom, as implied in the movie. The aim of the Gunpowder Plot was to create chaos among the English populace as part of a long-term plan to restore Catholic rule in the UK. See more »

OK, I only went to see this because of the Wachowski brothers involvement. I went totally expecting to hate this movie about a terrorist but it was so much more. I'm amazed to say that it's AWESOME! While not an action picture there's plenty of action and at least one funny homage to The Matrix. You've gotta see it. It's very inspiring, believe it or not and it didn't make me want to blow up buildings either. It just made me appreciate freedom even more.

I'm still in shock.
