Different enough from Tarantino's previous work to finally win over even an inveterate Tarantino-sceptic like me.

There is no ironic overlay in Tarantino's movies, no 'commenting' on the pop schlock he's replicating. He simply wants to remake in his own way the kinds of movies he's always loved, and he's about as uncynical as a movie geek can be.

Kill Bill isn't human. It's cinema as cinema. Tarantino is like a hyper, too-bright child, worrying you for your attention, jumping from thought to thought in his brain

It may be violent but it also has a joy for life and music and movies.

Volume 1 is a pure sugar-rush, an adrenaline-packed needle that injects wild fun into almost every conceivable vein.

...a gymnastic ballet of violence and a veritable orgy in blood.

Tarantino is no dilettante. He smartly sticks to what he knows, steals from the best, and makes his films his own.

As kung fu films go, this is one of the best I've ever seen.

Tarantino returns to the silver screen with the first installment of a bloody two-part tribute to the samurai stories of old... and we're all better for it!

A bloody, bubble-gum epic with as much dramatic weight as a powder puff.

'Filmmaking genius or blood-loving freak? Tarantino is a bit of both ...'

...a movie with such raw ambition and spirit that it literally reinvents the standards of everything it can be associated with.

'Tarantino logra un buen trabajo a secas. Ninguna obra maestra, pero si una buena cinta para pasar el rato y reírse de las exageraciones mostradas'

Confesso que ri ao perceber que daria 5 estrelas para este longa - mas qualquer outra cotação seria injusta e preconceituosa.

It's all about energy. It's constant and, for me, addicting.

If genre imitation is at epidemic levels, Tarantino still holds the title of original master, and the guy most likely to be stolen from.

[Tarentino]'s back in high style, drawing on such sources as martial arts movies and Japanese animation to create a vivid world all his own.
