Product Description

Product Description

Set containing both parts of Quentin Tarantino's hugely popular martial arts homage. In 'Kill Bill - Volume 1', 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. In 'Kill Bill - Volume 2' (2004), 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).

Before I commence to review these movies, may I first clarify that I would not particularly suggest purchasing this box set. On the site, it is actually cheaper to buy the two films separately, this set is simply the first two bundled in a cardboard box. Simply, I found this to be the most appropriate outlet to express my views of both volumes.
The first volume of Kill Bill is an exhilerating rush. Set through five chapters, we follow the Bride as she pursues the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad whose attempts to eliminate her at her wedding five years previously failed. This film is a mix, with two chapters of action, two of more subdued thrills and another of Japanese 'anime' animation. This combination works well making this a pleasurable movie going experience. Uma Thurman is a wonderful actress and Lucy Liu's O-Ren Ishii is a very interesting character. On its own, this film stands well, although there is a feeling of emptiness towards the end; something is missing. Of course, that something is the second volume. As a separate film, I would give this three and a half stars.
The second volume is a whole different experience. In the final five chapters (6-10) The action of the first is dropped (to a certain extent) and the film concentrates more on Tarantino's signature dialogue which although humorous and intelligent does not wholly redeem this film which is not a success on its own. Those who have not seen the original will most likely be confused. However, the ending is worth waiting for, even if the 'apocalyptic' final battle lasts little longer than five seconds. Daryll Hannah's exceptional performance may be the strongest reason to watch it by itself. Two and a half stars.
HOWEVER, when put together as a four-and-a-bit hours marathon this film is beautiful.

Folks, if you're looking for the extra special features, different edits, etc. then this is NOT the box set for you. This is just the two single DVDs bundled in lousy cardboard package and priced HIGHER that the two single DVDs together.
This is not a comment on the films, which I think are brilliant.

Buy the films, but don't buy this boxed set!
Kill Bill Vol.1 and Kill Bill Vol.2 are both great films, sure, but if you want them buy them separately for £7.97 each - don't spend £35 on the box. Because that's all you get - a poxy cardboard box containing the exact same DVDs you can buy for £7.97 each!
When I read 'Boxed Set' I think Robocop or Hellraiser or Godfather. I want bonus disks or a clever fold-out box or something extra. Quentin says that all this is coming. I don't know when, but this is not it!

Both Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2 come in a high quality of picture and sound, so it's a real treat to watch the movies.
The Blu-ray's extras aren't very special but it's nice to have the making-of, some teasers and trailers, two songs by the 5,6,7,8s, the Kill Bill Vol. 2 Premiere Chingon Performance and one single deleted scene. Unfortunately the slipcase seems to me like a cheap cardboard box.
However, I'm very much satisfied with the purchase. If nothing else, it's because both movies feature German audio track as well as Englisch, Spanish and Italian.

Before I give my brief review please take this advice: DON'T BUY THIS BOXSET!
The Kill Bill Collection Boxset offers nothing special. It is merely both the films in their original one disc forms in their original cases. Nothing has been added, except a cardboard box! You can buy both films on this site for £14 and you can even buy both films in high street shops for this price too. Don't waste your money splashing out on this boxset because at the end of the day that is all it is, both the normal films...in a cardboard box. You pay around £20 extra for a cardboard box! Don't bother.
(It's not even a nice fold-out boxset and doesn't even have an attractive front cover. It's just a BOX!)
Now, the review. Basically Kill Bill one is a very original well shot classic Tarantino film with an absolutely excellent ending when Uma Thurman (and her Samurai sword) take on loads of japenese gangsters (also with swords). It is brilliant, no other words can describe it. Great scripting, soundtrack, cinematography and awesome action make this film one of my all time favourites.
On the contrary Kill Bill 2 is completely scripted with only a few short action scenes which don't even compare to Volume 1. The whole thing is talking!!! Yes there are some damn funny bits and still a great soundtrack but Volume One is easily a lot better.
Still these are the best Tarantino films around and the action in Volume One truly is awesome. But...DON'T BUY THE BOXSET!

So by now everyone knows the plot and storyline to Kill Bill. The Bride (a very sexy but deadly Uma Thurman) is beaten and shot beyond belief on her wedding day when she tries to leave a squad of assassins known as the Deadly Viper Assassin Squad. She survives but is comatose for 4 years. Then she wakes up...
From thereon, it's blood and limbs all the way. To those of you who don't like too much violence, I am sorry to say that Kill Bill is not the film for you. A shame as I would like to recommend this film to everyone. Tarantino has delivered another trump card in film making here and it would be a travesty to miss out on it.
You may have gathered that the film is good, but why? Well there is a whole list of plus points ranging from the well orchestrated bloody fight scenes to the equally bloody but informative Anime sequence half way through the film. The dialogue is as clever as it is witty and blunt. A high percentage of the films dialogue is spoken in Japanese with subtitles which doesn't distract you from the film as much as some people think it does. As always I find the Tarantino soundtracks to be a tad quirky but they do always work. The soundtrack here is no exception. Included are songs from Nancy Sinatra, the theme from the Green Hornet and the RZA tune from the trailer. You know the one. Knowing nods and winks to past samurai films, costumes and fight scenes make this an entertaining film all round.
There will be some of you who just don't get the whole idea of the film. From the cheesy opening feature presentation, through the Anime and the spouting bloody limbs everywhere. It's homage to films gone by, mainly Japanese and it's brilliant.
Overall, yes it is bloody and yes there is foul language and yes there are disturbing scenes. But yes it is one of Tarantino's best films and brings something a little different to the screen. Buy it, rent it, whatever...just watch it.
