You just gotta love Quentin Tarantino. This movie abducts you from the very beginning and doesn't let you go until you are drained, skinless and surrendered, and ready to watch it all over again. It is inconceivable not to recognize how talented one most be to think outside of the box like this, to dare to do something so drastically different, so risky, and yet so meticulously well done. Bravo.

A tremendous orgy of violence and style. Some of the great fight scenes from the past 20 years of movies can be found here.

Bién, está película es; ridícula, grotesca, fantanciosa, extremadamente infantil y me a encantado. Como dije la película es ridícula; pero en el buen sentido, de echo Tarantino es justamente lo que buscaba en hacer esta película, todo un parodia y referencia a las películas de artes marciales y animes de acción. Kill Bill tiene una narrativa muy peculiar en un momento estás viendo una escena de acción y en otro estás viendo un animé y lo logra, realmente lo supieron hacer muy bien, Quentin Tarantino demostró que una trama de venganza puede ser muy buena a diferencia de como dice la crítica en general y por Dios, el soundtrack es una maravilla.
En general recomiendo esta película a todo público menos a personas de estómago débil ya que algo que caracteriza a las películas de este director es el gore.

Kill Bill: A Tarintino classic with stylish sword action with a unqiuely interesting, and refreshing, story, one that greatly boasts with style and form.

One of those "100 movies to watch before you die" type of movies. Just an amazing theatrical experience which was actually topped by its sequel.

An entertaining revenge thriller with excellent cinematography, a bad-ass protagonist, cool soundtrack and a LOT of blood.

With Quentin's wonderful directing, Therman's terrific acting and the interesting and intriguing story. Kill Bill is UNMISSABLE.

This is Tarantino's second best and most memorable film, after the fabulous Pulp Fiction (1994). It contains all the elements to make a good old, stylish, Tarantino movie : the script is unique and really well written and the style that this film has is incredible. The acting is also very good and there's an insane shit tone of gore. And, it's probably the best revenge movie I've ever seen. Recommended !!

Not just an incredibly comedic action experience, but a well crafted vengeful incision that compliments the Shaw Brothers classical Martial Arts films of its kind. The cinematography is well laid out by Robert Richardson whom did the picture work for Inglorious Bastards, The Aviator and Shutter Island, the action sequences are hilariously intense and the plot is just what you would expect out of a 70's Martial Arts flick.

The Japanese school girl whom nearly stole Uma Thurman's show (Chiaki Kuriyama) gave a performance a New York audience would clap to giving her praise for the hard work she imposed as the hardcore "Go Go Yubari" role that would skyrocket her to Japanese fame.

This movie gives you the action you want and the suspense you're looking for without taking it too seriously. A perfect mark of respect for the films that use to be the ones most would spend a Sunday afternoon watching.

Some schmuck takes a comic book, doesn't make any effort to adapt it to film, and mashes it with a ninja movie that isn't even middling for the genre, and everyone loves it just because it's Quentin Tarantino?

The opening is good (enough, expecting some over-the-top antics from Tarantino), and it remains pretty compelling through the flash-back to the hospital, her escape, the journey to Okinawa and receiving the sword from the legendary sword-maker-guy. Dramatic tension actually builds as she races through Tokyo and stakes out the club. Then begins the downhill slide.

From the first ridiculously silly shower-spray of blood from a severed limb, we get a descent from bad to worse. As much as I wanted to see her kill Lucy Liu and "Bill" (if she ever gets to him), it just wasn't worth sitting through another 20 minutes of Hanna Barbera cartoon crap. There are very few movies that I've been unable to stick out until the end, but this definitely was one of them.

One star is generous. Every critic who didn't rip this garbage apart should be ashamed.

Tarantino's ode to Japanese cinema is a goddamn masterpiece

(5.0 out of 6)

What makes an instrument of death is knowing what is right and wrong in whom to kill, that gives us the strength to overcome our enemies we seek to judge. What gives us the strength doesn't come from what you see from the outside but the inside that makes us worthy to hold the finest sword, when it's not the sword that makes it instrument of death but the warrior that accepts their peace, honour and journey from onward here.

Kill Bill: Volume 1 is as goodas a revenge thriller can possibly be. You can just feel that Mr. Tarantino had a blast with this one.

***
It's undeniably stylish and features some brutally brilliant action sequences, all captured with lush cinematography - but it's rather empty underneath all the glamour, and unfortunately has too many expositional scenes that simply weren't needed.

Bloody, yet looks good

Thrilling, brutally violent, and well-written, Kill Bill Vol. 1 plays out like a Samurai movie, and that style benefits it greatly. On top of that, the cast is top-notch, Tarantino's direction is usually strong, and the action is some of the best ever put to film.

A strange but suprisingly decent movie.

Tarantino shows his encyclopedic knowledge of cinema in this gory razzmatazz; mixing two genres which have two often been playing ping-pong; Westerns (Spaghetti in particular) and Samurai films. Naturally globe-trotting, sharing its time between America and Asia, the first volume of 'Kill Bill' is an occasionally over-the-top mainstream spectacle, astonishingly entertaining with its very simple plot and showing an admirably mastered non-chronological narrative line. Uma Thurman is well cast in this modern action packed B-movie. Its viewing has to be followed by Volume 2, they are dependant to one another.
