Kill Bill: Vol. 1
Go for the kill.
An assassin is shot at the altar by her ruthless employer, Bill, and other members of their assassination circle. But "The Bride" lives to plot her vengeance. Setting out for some payback, she makes a death list and hunts down those who wronged her, saving Bill for last.
Quentin Tarantino is a true film fan; not cynical, not pretentious, just a fan who loves genre films, loves giving his audience a new way of seeing them and loves to have fun with each and every thing he does to make old things new again. Kill Bill Vol. 1 is just this: the fun, swashbuckling, energetic and completely and utterly awesome work of a fan who will do his best to make us fans by the end; and at this he more than succeeds.
Everything is strategic. The sharp writing of the story of The Bride on her road to retribution to those wronged her, is glimpsed at the beginning, but unfolded with each vital detail and flowing moment…
I have an odd relationship with the Kill Bill films because whilst I love volume one I find the second installment a self-indulgent bore, albeit with fleeting moments of brilliance. It is a real shame I so dislike volume two because as enjoyable as this film is it still feels very much what it is; the first half of an incomplete story.
Getting my grievances with the series as a whole out of the way it is impossible to ignore how much fun volume one truly is. Essentially a love letter to Asian exploitation cinema, it is an exuberant, and admittedly indulgent, explosion of film and genre references. Whilst it wears those references for all to see (Lady Snowblood being…
"Kill Bill" is definitely a fantastic revenge movie with ultra-cool action scenes and remarkable cinematography.
The fight scenes are so bloody, violence, stylish and really the highlight of this film. Uma thurman is so cool as the leader in her role of 'The Bride' and I can honestly say that she is perfect-match with Tarantino's movies.
Overall "Kill Bill" is one of the best revenge movies ever made with unforgettable fight scenes and amazing soundtrack.
It's been about 11 years since I first saw Kill Bill Vol. 1, and I'd only seen it again one other time when it came out on DVD. In those 11 years, so many pieces of this movie have become touchstones for me that seeing it again got a little surreal - the Shaw Brothers logo! the Terror Tuesday feature presentation bumper! Revenge movies! Spaghetti westerns! De Palma inspired split screens and tracking shots! Billy May's Green Hornet theme! Bruce Lee's Kato outfit and yellow tracksuit! Sonny Chiba! The RZA! Yuen Wo-Ping! David Carradine! Gordon Liu! Feet! - and they illustrate how massive an influence this had on me years ago.
The great thing is that no homework is required…

As is the razor-sharp whole of Kill Bill Vol. 1. A flaming fury of a film that rip-roars around its sprawling narrative before searing itself into the history books with arguably the greatest action sequence of all time, Quentin Tarantino's first part of his truly epic revenge saga is a true classic of its genre.
Although it lifts most of its style from the Bruce Lee-starring Game of Death (the iconic yellow jumpsuit is from here) and Lady Snowblood (apparently, entire shots are replicated), Kill Bill Vol. 1 is iconic in its own way. Tarantino weaves the magic that he'd proved he had in his…
Before this recent rewatch, I'd only seen Kill Bill Volume 1 once before, and that was over four years ago. There's something kind of magical about watching a Tarantino film for the first time, and I felt like I had enough distance from it to feel that same sensation again. Revenge tales are so much fun to watch, especially when the story is kept really small and you're given a reason to root for the hero. The thrills in Kill Bill mostly come from:
• The perfect dialogue and one-liners
• The unforgettable characters
• The unexpected departures from the main storyline, like the animated scene
• The informative and entertaining flashbacks
• The deplorable and wildly entertaining villains
Todavía recuerdo cuando la vi con once años, empalado en el sofá, alucinando porque nunca había visto ni creído que pudiera existir nada que molara tanto y a semejante escala.
Y, otros once años después, todavía siento lo mismo.
In the year 2004, Uma Thurman will kill Bill (David Carradine). Until then, we'll be more than content with her killing Bill's underlings.
"Kill Bill: Vol. 1" is a revenge fantasy soaked in crimson, with an easily understood narrative and remarkably sparse dialogue. It's a film that borrows quite heavily from yakuza, Japanime, samurai and martial arts films as well as spaghetti westerns and Tarantino's own oeuvre. Since my experience is relatively limited in most of those aforementioned genres, I was only able to nod my head in silent approval over some of the cues laced into "Volume 1." People who catch Japanese television on their UHF frequencies and are employed by a low-end rental stores like Tarantino was might…
De vez en cuando vuelvo a ver los clásicos... :-)
FAVORITE MOVIE. The story in this movie has been done before in old movies but kill bill makes that story and makes it feel new.the soundtrack to this movie is one of the greatest soundtrack ever and the fight scene at the end was well shot and Directed really well.
son, when it hits you in the face, it hits you good.
What a terrible movie. I've never had a harder time staying awake during a film. I will never, ever understand the love affair with Tarantino. I just don't get his films or why people fall all over themselves to praise him. If this hadn't been so incredibly dreadful I might have some interest in seeing his new films, but this was two hours of my life I will never get back.
Tarantino clearly assembled three teams: one for soundtrack, one for special effects, and one for script, and then forbid them to meet or talk. And then he threw it all together in the end and fancied himself original and creative.
Mejor en la segunda vuelta y ese final...
