Picks and Pans Review: New on DVD

UPDATED 08/07/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 08/07/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT

V for Vendetta ($34.99) Turns out that Batman isn't the only masked vigilante who can deliver thrills. A young woman (Natalie Portman, baring her soul ... and her scalp) teams up with V, a man disguised as Guy Fawkes (who attempted to blow up Parliament in 1605) and hell-bent on toppling England's totalitarian government. Its gripping action scenes and subversive politics make Vendetta the rare film with style and substance. Extras: The two-disc special edition is lightweight, save for informative featurettes on Fawkes and the history of the Vendetta graphic novel. Stick to the bare-bones single-disc edition. (R) Movie:
