Movie Info

Quentin Tarantino's sprawling homage to action films of both the East and the West reaches its conclusion in this continuation of 2003's ultra-violent Kill Bill Vol. 1. Having dispatched several of her arch-enemies in the first film, The Bride (Uma Thurman) continues in Kill Bill Vol. 2 on her deadly pursuit of her former partners in the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, who, in a furious assault, attempted to murder her and her unborn child on her wedding day. As The Bride faces off against

If Kill Bill - Vol. 1 was like a roundhouse kick to the head, Vol. 2 is practically a warm hug.

Those turned off by the first part's reckless, relentless violent purges aren't likely to find cause for conversion, but Vol. 2 certainly broadens the tale's remit, even as it aims to deepen it.

I've lost my sweet tooth for slice-and-dice escapism, and perhaps this is why I feel the need to see movies that don't simply glamorize or fetishize or supernaturalize brutality.

It has its moments, and Thurman is an appealing heroine. But on the whole, this is a disjointed, disappointing and monstrously self-indulgent exercise.

Although it's a gigantic shame that Miramax split Quentin Tarantino's long awaited 'kung-fu samurai Spaghetti Western love story' epic into two halves, "Kill Bill Vol. 2" pays off in spades...

Quentin Tarantino revels in the art and craft of cinema; so much so he has managed to mine all his favourite genres and make the style the substance.

If Kill Bill is a comeback film, Tarantino's future career prospects look about as good as Mike Tyson's. The Emperor's new clothes are showing.

Though Vol. 2's body count is of necessity smaller than that of its predecessor, the brutality hurts more here, and counts for more.

The Tarantino style has been copied a thousand times over since Pulp Fiction, what Kill Bill: Vol. 2 proves is that he's still the master.

Much like the classic spaghetti Westerns and kung fu flicks, Tarantino paradoxically manages to glorify and condemn the violence of his characters.

Tarantino is killing off his mentors - directors who have passed or should have passed the torch long ago - to pave the future of cinema.

Soulless.

Lessons of Darkness

The second movie's action is limited to 2-3 fights, the rest are long conversations and introspection. It is a far bleaker, more serious and dry affair -- but also a more fascinating character study.

The closer the Bride gets to her true goal, the more human she becomes. Some scenes near the conclusion have a lot of heart in them.

Vol. 2 is a great conclusion to a great (albeit, as of yet, nonexistent except in theory) film, but it is not a great film.

A bit of an improvement over its first half, but not by much. But i was impressed with some of its character work and David Carradine`s magnificent performance which made the film.

The Bride: I've killed a hell of a lot of people to get to this point, but I have only one more. The last one. The one I'm driving to right now. The only one left. And when I arrive at my destination, I am gonna kill Bill. 

"The Bride Is Back For The Final Cut"

Kill Bill Vol. 2 is a good addition to the first film. Where the first film was a wall to wall action packed entry, this one slowed it down just a little bit and made for a more conversational film. It still had action and it still had the awesome choreography the first had; it just had longer scenes with more dialogue. For some action movies, that wouldn't work, but when Tarantino I'd the filmmaker; dialogue is a great thing. The more dialogue, the better, in my opinion. I liked this one just as much as the first and I think a second viewing of both would make me like them even more. 

You should know the plot as it is the title, but this is the one where she actually kills Bill. Along the way she kills some other people that had a hand in her death. We also see the scene right before Bill tries to kill her at the church, and we see her get training from the very man that Bill got his training from. Like the first one, and just about every Tarantino film, the plot jumps around. It's told in a very non-linear fashion, which has proven to work perfectly for Tarantino. 

Film lovers love these movies because there is just so much to take away from them, even on the first viewing. Tarantino's love for movies come out in these Kill Bill movies more than any other movie he has made. Everything about Kill Bill is done in a very detailed, very technical, very workmanlike way. Every shot, every song, every piece of dialogue, is exactly the way Tarantino wants it. A lot of what's going on in these movies is paying homage to the movies he loved. 

As a combination, these movies are amazing. Uma Thurman is the perfect fit for her character, as is David Carradine. These movies are a film buffs dream, but so is Quentin Tarantino. The Kill Bill movies are must see films. If you love any genre that these movies touch, it's necessary. If you love smart, exciting, action packed, funny films, watch these movies. You won't be disappointed in the four hour long runtime of the two films together.
