'I roared, and i rampaged, and i got bloody satisfaction...',
This review is from: Kill Bill, Volume 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
Quentin Tarantino's outstanding Kill Bill epic finally comes to an end, as she comes face to face with Bill. After crossing Vernita and Oren's names of her hit list, she is finally ready to go ahead and get the final three: Bud, Elle Driver and the one and only...Bill.
The second instalment of the phenomenal Kill Bill, is not better than part 1, but just as good. The two films are totally differente from one another, volume 1 is more oriental, japanese samurai style, with lots of colour and style, whereas vol.2 is more weastern and the picture is darker and less stylised. This also has much more spectacular dialogue and much more story, telling you more so you understand her motives for revenge. And if you were not a great fan of vol.1 (Which is basically impossible!) watch vol.2 and you will find yourself appreciating vol.1 much more than you think.
This film is not perfect, neither was vol.1, because yes the dialogue is great, but when bill and the bride are face to face, his lines do tend to drag on quite a bit, making the veiwers a tiny bit bored, but watching David Carradine from Kung-fu fame years ago he keeps you interested, that is if you grew up watching his t.v. series.
The acting is startingly good. Uma Thurman does an amazing job as the rampaging Bride, and Daryl Hannah makes an unbelievable come back (That Quentin also did for John Travolta in Pulp Fiction) as the vile, spiteful, evil ex-rival Elle Driver. Bud (Micheal Madson, Mr. Blonde in Resevoir Dogs) is just as good as the trailer trash brother of Bill, and David Carradine is equally as good as the rest of the cast. Oh, and see if you can spot Samuel L. Jackson's (Jackie Brown, Pulp Fiction)cameo as the Orchestra player at the wedding chapel. This is a tremendous film, both are for a fact. And there is rumour that when this is out to buy on DVD there will be a special edition of both films, together on a disc, for four hours of uncut Kill Bill footage! Which is something definetaly worth the wait.
