It was kind of a stupid movie. No one seems to remember that Guy Fawkes was trying to blow up Parliment on behalf of Spain, which was a Catholic monarchy. Fawkes wanted to end the Protestant revolution and restore the Catholic Church's dominion over Great Britain. So...sure, he wanted to over throw the government, but only to have a brutal theocracy take it's place. Not the best symbol for anarchists and anti-government types.
