Product Description

The return of renowned filmmaker Quentin Tarantino after an absence of 6 years. Uma Thurman stars as The Bride, one-fifth of a team of assassins called DiVAS. When she decides to get married and leave the outfit her boss, Bill (David Carradine), is not a happy man and gets her former colleagues to show up at the wedding; leaving behind a blood bath and The Bride shot in the head. Four years later, The Bride sets out on a journey of revenge which is ultimately to kill her former boss, Bill. The film was due to be three hours long but was split into two films (hence the name) and Volume 2 concludes the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A grindhouse spectacular! 12 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Okay, there is absolutely no need to tell any more about Vol. 1's plot unless you've just jumped down here without looking at the top reviews. Anyway, Tarantino's most recent BIG project was Kill Bill, a two-hour epic of blood and hate. From the opening credits to the final cliffhanger, this flick has Tarantino written all over Uma Thurman's triangularly shaped forehead. He's resurrected his trademarks like the jumpy time sequence, very deep morals found only between the lines, crime bosses, that kooky dialogue we've all come to know and love, and even some newer tricks have come out of his sleeve like the amazing anime sequence and homage to even more obscure film genres we've never heard of.
There is, of course the issue of violence and gore associated with this film. Anybody who can laugh at Monty Python's infamous Black Knight scene can cope with it but even still will be shaking their heads in a mix of emotions somewhere between sheer horror and pure hilarity. One scene within the climactic battle scene was even purposely put into black and white in order to keep an R rating. Overseas in countries used to that level of ferocious death, like Japan in particular, it was shown in full bloody color, while if seen over here by our children's minds the entire project would've had an NC-17. It's truly a shame when true art can't be expressed to the world in its full glory (or whatever you'd personally want to call it). Another problem about the film is the cutoff in the middle of the script. Howard Stern said that he would've loved to see it in its complete four-hour length, and even though salivating can be good I'm a little tired of waiting after this many months.
Still, despite the little concerns, this is a fantastic movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kill or be killed... 31 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
So by now everyone knows the plot and storyline to Kill Bill. The Bride (a very sexy but deadly Uma Thurman) is beaten and shot beyond belief on her wedding day when she tries to leave a squad of assassins known as the Deadly Viper Assassin Squad. She survives but is comatose for 4 years. Then she wakes up...
From thereon, it's blood and limbs all the way. To those of you who don't like too much violence, I am sorry to say that Kill Bill is not the film for you. A shame as I would like to recommend this film to everyone. Tarantino has delivered another trump card in film making here and it would be a travesty to miss out on it.
You may have gathered that the film is good, but why? Well there is a whole list of plus points ranging from the well orchestrated bloody fight scenes to the equally bloody but informative Anime sequence half way through the film. The dialogue is as clever as it is witty and blunt. A high percentage of the films dialogue is spoken in Japanese with subtitles which doesn't distract you from the film as much as some people think it does. As always I find the Tarantino soundtracks to be a tad quirky but they do always work. The soundtrack here is no exception. Included are songs from Nancy Sinatra, the theme from the Green Hornet and the RZA tune from the trailer. You know the one. Knowing nods and winks to past samurai films, costumes and fight scenes make this an entertaining film all round.
There will be some of you who just don't get the whole idea of the film. From the cheesy opening feature presentation, through the Anime and the spouting bloody limbs everywhere. It's homage to films gone by, mainly Japanese and it's brilliant.
Overall, yes it is bloody and yes there is foul language and yes there are disturbing scenes. But yes it is one of Tarantino's best films and brings something a little different to the screen. Buy it, rent it, whatever...just watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 7 Jun 2005
By ASax
Format:DVD
Kill Bill is a favourite of mine because of the clever way in which it has been made. The opening scene shows 'The Bride' (Uma Thurman) being shot in a Texas chapel by her former boss, Bill. The movie then jumps from past to present to show how she goes about getting her revenge from the five who massacred her family and tried to kill her.
What is really amazing about this film is that Tarantino plays with different types of imagery. Overall the film is very violent and to almost censor the blood and gore he employs black and white imagery and cartoons. The cartoons are strong in conveying what is happening very well and at the same time prevent the need for actual people, stabbing and lots of blood. The same is done with the black and white imagery where the focus is more on what is happening than the blood being shed.
All in all this is an absolutely FANTASTIC film, cleverly done and with a brilliant soundtrack. Uma Thurman gives a cracking performance. Definitely one to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Roaring Rampage of Revenge! 7 April 2005
Format:DVD
It's been a while since Jakie Browne, but Tarantino is back with his first of two revenge flicks "Kill Bill" and let me tell you something, they are HOT!
When a female assassin (Uma Thurman) decides its time to leave her profession, marry some guy and concieve her child outside a world of blood and massacre, her ex-lover and boss, Bill (David Carradine) takes the news badly and sets out, along with his band of assassins (Lucy Liu, Daryl Hannah, Vivica A. Foxx and Micheal Madsen) to put an end to the wedding and take care of The Bride once and for all. Refusing to die, The Bride rouses from a four year coma and begins to write up a death list for those who betrayed her.
This is pure Tarantino. Only he could blend genres of Spagetti Western, kung-fu, anime and japanese samuri flicks together to produce one of the best films released in 2003. There is never a dull moment in this movie. You will be gasping in all the rite places as Uma slices her way through "The Crazy 88", you will find yourself literally on the edge of your seat as you watch the tense showdown with O-Ren Ishii in eerie silence and you will be gagging to see the concluding chapter of the story. The cast deliver strong performances, wicked dialouge dripping in dark humour and many impressive stunts. The fast pace of the film is accompanied with a killer soundtrack that you will never forget. The only problem with the film, which is quite disappointing, is that is really all you get on the DVD, apart from a "making-of", trailers and two music videos of the
5,6,7,8s. Deleted scenes? Director's Cut? Hello?

A fantastic and thrilling movie which is definitely up there alongside the other Tarantino classics. A word of advice: Never deprive yourself of movies like this.
