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.
