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.

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

Sequel just as over-the-top explicitly violent.

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.

Soulless.
March 7, 2005
Chattily cruel, ecstatically gentle, Vol 2 creates an off-centre world you don't want to leave.

I've lost my sweet tooth for slice-and-dice escapism, and perhaps this is why I feel the need to see movies that don't simply glamorize or fetishize or supernaturalize brutality.

The pop encyclopedist and video-store genius has become a megalomaniac, and the exhilarating filmmaker he might have been is disappearing fast.

If he doesn't take care Tarantino could make something significantly worse.

Go see it, laugh and flinch in all the right places, have a ball, but don't expect to remember this for years to come.

A gargantuanly entertaining double feature.

There is much to admire but little to love. Tarantino is not a director who engages on an emotional level.
April 27, 2004
This is a movie of head-spinning richness.
April 22, 2004
People who stayed away from Vol. 1 because of its genre-dictated violence may find Vol. 2 so much fun that they'll want to catch up on Vol. 1.

A blast to watch.

Tarantino's films are rarely nice. People get eviscerated, browbeaten, whipped, shot, stabbed, mutilated, eaten alive, eyes plucked out and endure a smorgasbord of Big Kahuna Burgers.

for all the craft that's gone into Kill Bill, Vol. 2, despite the chance Tarantino has taken in departing from the wham-bam movement of the first half, my final reaction to the movie is, so what?
