Revenge is a dish best served cold..., 16 Aug. 2004
... and this is a film best seen again and again!!
Having been a fan of Quentin Tarantino's unrivalled style and utterly unique films, i knew Kill Bill would be a great one to watch. After, i knew it was an unbelievable, powerful and brutal work of art!
Tarantino teams up again with Uma Thurman, (who played a great part in Pulp Fiction...THAT dance with Travolta...) to make KILL BILL, a tale of bloody revenge. You know the rest.
The 'roaring rampage of revenge' is not only a charismatic and vivicious film, but has such a great sense of style that it's one of those timeless movies you can watch over and over again, and i believe it will become a classic in years to come.
Uma Thurmans portrayal of the Bride (HINT; to know her real name revealed in the second film, look at her plane tickets!!!) is a great performance, with the other characters including Lucy Lui, Daryl Hannah,Michael Madsen, Vivaca Fox, Sonny Chiba and David Carrandine (well, in theory) contributing to the violence and brillaince of the film. True, it is an ultra-violent film, but not senslessly. In some scenes, it's reverted to black and white or even anime to minimise the gore, but instead of removing anything, it only adds to the unique-ness, all-round fun and style of the film. The black and white echoes the martial arts films of the seventies and the anime is just for some fun (as well as a lot of blood!).
In short, some people love it, some people hate it, others just think its unnecessarily bloody, but my thoughts, and the thoughts of everyone else whos given it good reviews, is that KILL BILL is Tarantino's best yet film, is brutal, slyly funny, powerful and thought-provoking, and is essential to any film collection!
