Watching Tarantino's films-and none more than Kill Bill-is like being stuck in a room with someone who, like so many of this director's characters, can't stop talking about the really neat parts in the movies he's seen.

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

Volume One is, above all, a parade of fantastic fight scenes, each one bloodier than the one that came before ... bloody in the Looney-Toons/Monty-Python sense.

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

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

Quentin Tarantino makes terrible movies really, really well.
November 2, 2003
Really, it seemed to me that Tarantino was merely trying to shock people into forgetting the idiocracy of what was happening on screen.

An impressive exercise in style but little more.

Six years and this is all that Quentin Tarantino can come up with?
October 17, 2003
Ripping off and rearranging moves, ideas, and codes from seemingly countless sources, Kill Bill is a careful film that looks glib, a nuanced film that looks shallow.
October 15, 2003
When people tell you it's bloody, they're not exaggerating. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot more. (And I loved Pulp Fiction)
October 12, 2003
Do I feel cheated by having to buy another movie ticket to see how 'Kill Bill' ends? You betcha.
October 11, 2003
It all adds up to an epic pop artefact of indescribable soullessness.

Kill Bill is one long yakkety-yak about Tarantino's passions. He's the samurai who won't shut up.
October 10, 2003
With no real characters or ideas in sight, it seemed ultimately tiresome and forgettable.
October 10, 2003
It boggles the mind that after six years of silence, all Tarantino has to offer is this garbage.
October 10, 2003
It took Tarantino six years to come up with this?
October 10, 2003
For the first time, Tarantino has made a film that validates almost every charge his detractors have leveled against him.
October 10, 2003
There's a lot to admire in Kill Bill, and a lot that should have been lopped off like the arms and legs and scalps that go flying.
October 10, 2003
An action movie with fantastic music, considerable style and the mentality of a director refusing to leave the sanctuary in his 1970s childhood.
