Kill Bill: Vol. 2

Critics Consensus

Kill Bill: Volume 2 adds extra plot and dialogue to the action-heavy exploits of its predecessor, while still managing to deliver a suitably hard-hitting sequel.

  • Vol. 2 fills in the motivational and emotional blanks that left the first movie tasting like a meal made only of appetizers.

  • I don't even want to do Tarantino and his pathetic accomplices the honour of recounting the narrative of the second "volume" of this exercise in trashpedalling, and frankly I don't need to, because there isn't a plot to speak of.

    January 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Where KB1 had the pace of an ADHD six-year-old on a sugar high, KB2 has been Ritalinized, its tempo slowed to a crawl in self-conscious, and self-defeating, imitation of Sergio Leone. It's two hours that feel like five.

  • If Kill Bill - Vol. 1 was like a roundhouse kick to the head, Vol. 2 is practically a warm hug.

    August 15, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Those turned off by the first part's reckless, relentless violent purges aren't likely to find cause for conversion, but Vol. 2 certainly broadens the tale's remit, even as it aims to deepen it.

  • Chattily cruel, ecstatically gentle, Vol 2 creates an off-centre world you don't want to leave.

Audience Reviews for Kill Bill: Volume 2

  • Jul 20, 2016
    Easily surpassing the previous film in storytelling this film brings a great story to the table. The gritty action and lead performances really make this a respectable film in Quinten Tarentino's repituare. Though Volume 2 does lack some of the gritty action of the first Volume it certainly doesn't disappoint

    It's not as violent as the first film and it's a good sequel in sequel standards. It still has fun action scenes and there is even a strange romance between Beatrix and Bill. However because it's not as violent as the first one it's also not as action packed making it more boring. The film felt long (it was longer than the first one) and slow paced.

    A very different sequel and completely different to what I expected after the first part was very action heavy and soaked in blood, Volume 2 adds extra plot details that work very well but there's little action and felt overlong at times, Brilliantly acted again and the story was much more interesting but apart from that there's nothing much more on show.

    The best "Kill Bill" so far and very different from the first. It is extremely well written and balances out Vol. 1's delightfully over-the-top style with some serious character development and some very bold and epic cinematography. This is a film that brilliantly examplifies QT's versatility as a writer/director, as well as his deeply auspicious understanding of film. Gordon Liu and Micheal Parks are an absolute treat!! Definately one of Quentin's best.
