No, watch the movie also.
It's not a page by page adaptation of V for Vendetta but there are a few sequences lifted directly out. A few changes in character backstory but the theme and tone of the movie contain the spirit of comic itself.
And here I thought the themes were COMPLETELY different, and changing the characters as drastically as they did didn't help.
Too many things were changed to making things way too Americanized and much more "hollywood".
Like the movie or not (I liked it for the most part), it's tough to say the themes and point of the story didn't stray a bit.
