Reviews

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.

Format: UMD Mini for PSP
"Kill Bill" was either a disaster-in-the-making or a one of a kind hit -- a sprawling revenge flick that had to be cut in two and released separately. But director Quentin Tarantino serves up entertainingly mindless gore and twisted thrills in "Kill Bill Volume 1," a salute to homages.

Tragedy strikes the Bride (Uma Thurman) on her wedding day: The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (DiVAS) attacks and slaughters the guests, the groom, and wounds the very pregnant Bride herself. Her former boss/lover Bill (David Carradine) finishes the bloodbath by shooting the Bride in the head. But despite his efforts, she isn't dead.

A few years later, the Bride wakes to find that she has been in a coma for a few years, and has been being used as a sex toy for rent. After recovering enough to move, the Bride gets a sword sharp enough to "cut God," and goes on a revenge spree against the people who wrecked her life and killed her baby, including Cottonmouth (Vivica A. Fox) and the deadly O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu).

Don't expect cinematic art in "Kill Bill Volume 1." If anything, this is cinematic pop art, a loving tribute to cheesy martial-arts flicks and westerns. Tarantino even inserts a stretch of anime detailing O-Ren's background. It's pure Tarantino, untainted by typical directing methods and immensely entertaining if you switch off your critical faculties, refrain from asking "How the heck could that happen?"

"Kill Bill" isn't for the weak of stomach; over 450 gallons of fake blood are used in both movies. But the blood usage is more "Monty Python" than "Braveheart"; it's so over-the-top that it's silly and sick rather than disturbing. So is the violence -- hacking dozens of people down without getting so much as a scrape is impossible, but it's sure fun to watch.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
After being gunned down on her wedding day by her former colleagues, assassin Black Mamba (Uma Thurman) rouses from a four year coma with only one thing on her mind, revenge! Striking up a death list of five, she sets off for bloody retribution.

Quentin Tarrantino writes and directs what is in all truth, a homage to all the cinema conventions close to his heart. Think an amalgamation of chop-socky, sexploitation, samurai, spaghetti Westerns, anime and cop shows of years past, and you get the heart of Kill Bill. A film that was so epic in scope it had to be cut into two film's. What it lacks in Tarrantino dialogue dynamite it more than makes up for with action and astute visual flair. And it's bloody, very bloody. Thurman is great as the avenging Mamba/The Bride, while the inclusion of Sonny Chiba & Lucy Liu adds a touch of class as QT revels in his east meets west berserker narrative. It could have been trimmed down, particularly in the middle section where Tarrantino deals in a calm before the storm ideal. But Volume 1 was one of the most exciting movies of 2003, and most notably it shows Tarrantino to be adept at action directing. Something that perhaps explains why the script doesn't crackle with the witt and panache of his previous offerings. You sense he wants more than the words "fine writer" engraved on his granite mined Curriculum Vitae.

Hugely enjoyable with a neat end of film cliffhanger, roll on part 2...... 8/10

'Kill Bill Vol. 1' is a kind of return-to-roots for Tarantino, echoing back to 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction', and certainly moving away from his more mature 'Jackie Brown'. The beauty of it is, putting aside its closeness in style and violence to his earlier films, it manages to set out in a completely different direction at the same time.

With genre nods to 'femme fatale', spaghetti Westerns and of course, Japanese martial arts, KB1 is a wonderful blend of a variety of different styles. If had been anyone except Tarantino, it would have never been pulled off.

The highlight of the film is difficult to choose, what with there being so many fine moments to choose from ('wiggle your big toe!') has got to be the stunning piece of anime depicting the murder of Oren-Ishii's parents. It is simply breathtaking.

Of course, special mention has to go to the Bride's butchering of the Crazy 88 (so violent it's shown in black and white) and her final showdown with Oren in the Japanese garden.

The ending is wonderful, and actually leaves you eagerly awaiting the conclusion. Tarantino's return to what he does best means that it probably won't appeal to mainstream viewers, but that doesn't matter. It's already a cult classic.

Format: DVD
Opening with 1970's style 'Our Feature Presentation' and then you are straight into a roller coaster of a film. Yes it is violent, and there is a lot of blood. But its very well done and of course a homage to the films that Tarantino grew up with in the 60's and 70's. Spagetti westerns, Kung-Fu movies are all referenced in images and the soundtrack. Spot Sonny Shiba as the greatest sword maker ever.

A third of the way through the film we get an anime section as well. Tarantino may be a fan of anime, but watching this sequence again recently I realised how incredibly violent it is. The whole film is an adult comic strip anyway, but this section is so violent that maybe Tarantino just decided to do it animated to avoid censorship problems. Whatever it doesn't matter, it works.

This is, as you would expect, well directed and fantastic entertainment. The performances from the cast are all good or better.

BTW there is really no point in buying this DVD without buying vol 2 at the same time. The reason it only gets 4 stars? Kill Bill vol2 is better.
