Throughout the film he spreads his message to meet him at Parliament on the 2h of November to blow it up and kills various people who wronged him, all the while bringing Evey to his cause as he reveals the horrific truth about the governments mass killing program.
At the end of the film V dies but Evey now fully behind the cause completes his plan by blowing up Parliament. The first example of V influencing Evey is in the TV station scene. V enters the BTN building the main and probably only station with a bomb vest and forces the employees to broadcast his message on the emergency broadcast channel.
Despite the amount of authorities now congregated at the building, he kills the police and escapes, only to be met by a detective, who is maced by Evey which allows V to escape. This is probably the change in character In Evey's thinking, as she first sees him as a sympathetic character.
V and Evey Essay revised
Even know the film is primarily based around Evey being turned to V's cause, this scene shows that she probably agreed with him from the very start, despite his obvious message of hate. The director used her to represent the mass of people who believed in his cause but stayed silent. These people are afraid of the government but are too afraid to act out, and Evey is the representation of these people finally standing up and doing something about it. Directly after this scene, where Evey is taken to V's lair, we find out more about V and how he influences her.
The audience finds out he is a master thief, swordsman, chef; "this is delicious! He is obviously in love with her as well, as he puts on romantic music, movies and other things for her, but yet does not reveal his face to her even as she asks.
This is the way the director shows that even love will not let V compromise the ideal that it is only the idea that matters.
The second example of V influencing Evey is in the terrorist scene. After Evey escapes Dietrich's house in the police raid, she is bagged and brought to a facility where she is tortured for helping V and refusing to tell them his whereabouts. Eventually she is told she is to be shot, but the door opens and she walks out the front door only to realize she was in V's basement the entire time.
Evey Hammond - Wikipedia
Strangely, although angry at first, she takes this quite well, as she realizes that it will help her become a stronger person. The director does this to show how V's ideal of "the means justifying the end" has rubbed off on her. For Evey to realize V's troubles, she had to be put through it. V tortured in the same way, which is why he hates the government. The director uses flashbacks to achieve this.
In the end, Evey is stronger and is not afraid to die, uttering "I'd rather die behind the chemical shed", showing that she'd rather keep her ideals and die than give in. Essentially in his scene, she is brainwashed, or at least converted to the cause in a strange way.
This follows through with an important talking point the director included, which is "is V a good or bad character", and the means justifying the end. Certainly his way of doing his work is villainous, he kills dozens of innocents, but his goal is rather heroic, in bringing down the government. Brainwashing, is an important fact to consider, or at least the director has.
The line "is that what you want to think, or is that what they want you to think? However, throughout out the rest of the film V is regarded as a good character. The director shows this by using the soundtrack.
The soundtrack is contrasted between V's heroic, brassy action pieces and the government's moody, brooding slow pieces, using major chords for V and minor chords for the government, generally speaking. This makes the audience relate V to heroes, and the government to villains even if their actions do not match up. The Hammonds are arrested by the Fingermen and die in Belmarsh prison Evey's mother starves to death during a hunger strikewhile her father is shot by British soldiers during an assault on the prison.
Evey's last memory of her mother is of watching her head being covered by a black bag as she is dragged away. Suddenly orphanedEvey is sent to a child reclamation camp, "re-educated" and released back into society.
In the comic book series, V abandons Evey after he kills Lilliman; in the film, she runs away from V after attempting to betray him to Lilliman, then goes to Deitrich for protection. Evey does form a relationship with Deitrich, but the two do not become lovers, as he is homosexual.
Deitrich's arranged liaisons with female co-workers are a ruse to deflect suspicions about his sexual orientationsince homosexuality is illegal. Soon after, however Dietrich is mercilessly beaten by Party Leader Peter Creedy as he raids Deitrich's home and captures him, official revenge for satirising the Chancellor on television. V gets to Evey before Creedy does and captures her himself, though she is led to believe she's in the hands of the Fingermen.
The ensuing sequences involving the torture Evey undergoes, the inspiration she finds in Valerie's letters, with her character's transformation, are all taken from the graphic novel. Unlike in the graphic novel, Evey does not personally take up the mantle of V after his death, but she does grant him his final wish and give him a Viking funeral in a train car filled with explosives.
Unlike the graphic novel, London's chief of police, Inspector Eric Finchdiscovers her. Also, unlike the comic book series, Creedy and his men have already mortally wounded V, thus he is dead by the time Finch finds them. Finch, who secretly sympathizes with V's cause, lets her pull the lever triggering the explosives.
