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.

It's all bang, bang; no kiss, kiss. But this is still bravura film-making from a prodigious talent, and Thurman may yet prove its saving grace.

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.

Brutally bloody and thrillingly callous from first to last.
October 24, 2003
Six years and this is all that Quentin Tarantino can come up with?
October 16, 2003
I would argue that, in a bizarre way, Mr. Tarantino empowers women as no action-genre director before him ever has.
October 12, 2003
Simultaneously a spectacular act of movie-making and a slight movie.
October 11, 2003
It all adds up to an epic pop artefact of indescribable soullessness.
October 11, 2003
Kill Bill is one long yakkety-yak about Tarantino's passions. He's the samurai who won't shut up.
October 10, 2003
Delivered with such high panache and brio, it's mesmerizing.
October 10, 2003
Has matched, if not eclipsed, the power and scope of 1994's Pulp Fiction.
October 10, 2003
Whatever Bill's limitations, style isn't one of them.
October 10, 2003
Not only is this the work of a major and vital talent in full bloom, it's the most thrillingly entertaining American movie so far this year.
October 10, 2003
This is some glorious filth -- in the most flattering, arterial-spraying sense of filth.
October 10, 2003
It boggles the mind that after six years of silence, all Tarantino has to offer is this garbage.
October 10, 2003
Kill Bill would be the easiest thing in the world to dismiss if it weren't so much nasty fun.
October 10, 2003
An eye-popping, blood-soaked, ingeniously choreographed thriller and Hong Kong homage that ultimately adds up to ... not much.
