Carradine is fantastic as Bill, while Thurman deserves consideration for an Academy Award nomination with her performance as the Bride.

Tarantino's attempt to inject a more solemn tone as the narrative reaches its climax creates an awkward mesh with the proceeding pulpiness.

To watch a Tarantino film is to surrender wholeheartedly to his giddy genius, and this, his magnum opus, is no exception.

n the hyper-kinetic Kill Bill 1 you didn't know when the end happened, in Vol 2 you often wish the proceedings could hurtle to the finale, fast.

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.

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.

Where Volume 1 is about action, Volume 2 is talk, Tarantino's stock in trade, and it's good (if somewhat long winded) talk. It's also another roll call of Tarantino's cinematic loves ...

It has its moments, and Thurman is an appealing heroine. But on the whole, this is a disjointed, disappointing and monstrously self-indulgent exercise.
August 15, 2012
If Kill Bill - Vol. 1 was like a roundhouse kick to the head, Vol. 2 is practically a warm hug.
December 24, 2010
Sequel just as over-the-top explicitly violent.
May 6, 2009
Although it's a gigantic shame that Miramax split Quentin Tarantino's long awaited 'kung-fu samurai Spaghetti Western love story' epic into two halves, "Kill Bill Vol. 2" pays off in spades...
October 18, 2008
Quentin Tarantino revels in the art and craft of cinema; so much so he has managed to mine all his favourite genres and make the style the substance.
August 7, 2008
Full of surprises and cinematic homage.
December 7, 2007
If Kill Bill is a comeback film, Tarantino's future career prospects look about as good as Mike Tyson's. The Emperor's new clothes are showing.
August 4, 2007
Though Vol. 2's body count is of necessity smaller than that of its predecessor, the brutality hurts more here, and counts for more.
July 14, 2007
The Tarantino style has been copied a thousand times over since Pulp Fiction, what Kill Bill: Vol. 2 proves is that he's still the master.
September 25, 2006
Much like the classic spaghetti Westerns and kung fu flicks, Tarantino paradoxically manages to glorify and condemn the violence of his characters.
July 2, 2006
Tarantino is killing off his mentors - directors who have passed or should have passed the torch long ago - to pave the future of cinema.

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.
