In the original comic book, V is an anarchist, and when he dies the people mask up and start fighting against the state. When Hollywood got their hands on it, they turned him into a liberal and the mass of people at the end just march peacefully, like spectators, to watch the fireworks, while the military, somehow, loses its nerve (have they ever, in history, had problems with shooting unarmed, peaceful civilians?).
