Product Description

Having dispensed with former colleagues O-Ren Ishii and Vernita Green in the first volume, The Bride (Uma Thurman) resumes her quest for justice in this second installment of Tarantino's jaw-droppingly violent homage to action films from both East and West. The Bride now has two remaining foes on her 'Death List', Budd (Michael Madsen) and Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah) - before she moves on to her ultimate goal - to kill Bill (David Carradine).

From Amazon.co.uk

"The Bride" (Uma Thurman) gets her satisfaction--and so do we--in Quentin Tarantino's "roaring rampage of revenge", Kill Bill, Vol. 2. Where Vol. 1 was a hyper-kinetic tribute to the Asian chop-socky grindhouse flicks that have been thoroughly cross-referenced in Tarantino's film-loving brain, Vol. 2--not a sequel, but Part Two of a breathtakingly cinematic epic--is Tarantino's contemporary martial-arts Western, fuelled by iconic images, music and themes lifted from any source that Tarantino holds dear, from the action-packed cheapies of William Witney (one of several filmmakers Tarantino gratefully honours in the closing credits) to the spaghetti epics of Sergio Leone. Tarantino doesn't copy so much as elevate the genres he loves, and the entirety of Kill Bill is clearly the product of a singular artistic vision, even as it careens from one influence to another. Violence erupts with dynamic impact, but unlike Vol. 1, this slower grand finale revels in Tarantino's trademark dialogue and loopy longueurs, reviving the career of David Carradine (who plays Bill for what he is: a snake charmer), and giving Thurman's Bride an outlet for maternal love and well-earned happiness. Has any actress endured so much for the sake of a unique collaboration? As the credits remind us, "The Bride" was jointly created by "Q&U", and she's become an unforgettable heroine in a pair of delirious movie-movies (Vol. 3 awaits, some 15 years hence) that Tarantino fans will study and love for decades to come. --Jeff Shannon

Kill Bill vol 1 was a spectacular film. So creating a worthy sequel was no going to be an easy job. However I think they have done a really good job of it.

I do not think that it is as good as vol 1. It has less action and the action is not as perfectly choreographed as in vol 1. This does not mean that it is not good however. The action here in my opinion is far better than what you will find in most martial arts films. One other thing that is missing from this volume is the perfet blending of the soundtrack. It is not as good as the first one.

Despite the above details this is a very watchable film. In fact many people have stated that they prefer it to vol 1 as it exposes the plot that has led to Thurman's bloody quest for vengeance. Thurman as in the first film is superb and Tarrantino's directing brings out the best in her. In my opinion one of the highlights of the film is the appearence of Carradine's Bill. The film somehow avoids all known cliche's and this is especially evident in the final showdown.

This film in my opinion is not as good as the first one. However it still is a masterpiece of this genre of flim. So my advice to anyone is that both films are well worth purchasing.

Format: DVD
With less emphasis on balletic fight scenes and strong imagery, the second segment of Quentin Tarantino's revenge epic remains crammed with memorable moments whilst filling in more of the back story and continuing to pay homage to Kung-Fu classics and a range of other genres.

Without giving anything away for those who've yet to see the movie, the best scene has to be QT's glorious riff on Evil Dead, although this is almost rivalled by the inspired - for those of a certain age - Monkey-esque scene, where the Bride is schooled in martial arts by the venerable sage Pai Mei whose eyebrows seem to have a life of their own and whose presence lightens the mood of the film considerably, for a while at least.

We get to see the eponymous Bill at last, and discover the exact nature of his relationship with Uma Thurman's bride, whilst 80s film staple Daryl Hannah is brilliantly cast as a one-eyed assassin, who along with Michael Madsen's gone-to-seed hitman (and Bill's brother), tries to kill the vengeful bride before she gets to them.

Slick, fun, and occasionally macabre, Kill Bill Vol. 2 complements the first film nicely and in its own right stands as a classy piece of cinema.

Whereas Reservoir Dogs (1991) and Pulp Fiction (1994) took elements from the French New Wave and American independent cinema of the 1980's to create bold, iconic, character driven films rife with clever dialog, uncompromising violence and subtle allusions to a myriad of varied, textured film references, Kill Bill: Volumes 1 & 2 (2003-2004) take the idea of referencing even further, giving us blatant and literal references that cross from one genre to the next with a complete disregard for whether or not the audience is familiar with the kind of work being quoted. This technique is pushed even further in the subsequent Death Proof (2007), which really does require an audience to be familiar with its subject in order to get the most out of the style, set-up and intent. Here, all pretentions to the cinema of the French New Wave are dropped, as well as the more adult-orientated flavour of the previous Jackie Brown (1997), which was perhaps more in keeping with the aging spirit of the blacksploitation sub-genre of films from which it drew a superficial influence.

Instead, Kill Bil finds director Quentin Tarantino shifting his focus to Asian cinema and referencing sources as disparate as Kung-Fu (1972), Lone Wolf and Cub (1972), Lady Snowblood (1973), The Street Fighter (1974), Shogun Assassin (1980) and Ichi the Killer (2001), as well as taking direct influence from the Shaw Brothers studio productions of the 1960's and filmmakers like Kinji Fukasaku and Seijun Suzuki.

First, be sure you watch the end of the film. That means through the credits of the main characters in color and through the black & white credits with the Bride driving and through the long scroll of rolling credits. Even when you get to the film's rating it is not yet time to go, so just sit there until the screen goes bright white. Remember, you were warned.
Second, for everybody who thinks that on the basis of "Kill Bill, Volume 1" that they know what is going to happen in "Kill Bill, Volume 2," be ready to be surprised. I made a point of watching the Bride (Uma Thurman) check Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox) and O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu) off of her people to kill list before I headed out to theater to see how the saga ended, so I thought I was perfectly in the narrative flow. However, Quentin Tarantino has set up his audience just to play with their minds, which, of course, is what he was doing from the start and at the climax of this film I was not at all sure who, if anyone, was going to come out alive (especially since I was suddenly thinking about the tragic end of "Lone Wolf and Cub").
The caveat when Mirimax decided to split this four-hour revenge film into two volumes was that those who sensed a lack of character development and motivation in Volume 1 would be appeased by what was put forth in Volume 2, and this is indeed the case. We finally get to go back and see a couple of pivotal scenes set before the "beginning" of the film's opening, with not only the massacre at the Two Pines wedding chapel but a training sequence in which the Bride studies with the great Pai Mei (Chia Hui Liu), who will inspire many men to grow long flowing white beards that they can whip around dramatically as a punctuation to everything they say.
