The tale is pure pulp, a catalogue of seventies martial arts revenge dramas and American B-movie action thrillers, and the style is pure Tarantino...

With its eclectic use of music and inventive mix of genres, Kill Bill is a striking and enigmatic revenge film visually and culturally rich and relentless in its action.

May 7, 2008
A strange, fun and densely textured work that gets better as it goes along.

Even more gory and adolescent than its models, which explains both the fun and the unpleasantness of this globe-trotting romp.

I didn't leave the cinema aching to see Volume Two (out in February), though I'm interested to learn how things work out.

March 5, 2005
Perhaps the funniest thing about Kill Bill: Volume One is the realization that this ode to ultraviolence and Uma Thurman's feet is probably Quentin Tarantino's most personal film.
