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…
"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.
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…
“Well, a sure and steady hand did this. This ain’t no squirrelly amateur. This is the work of a salty dog. You can tell by the cleanliness of the carnage. Now a kill-crazy rampage though it may be, all the colors are kept within the lines. If you was a moron, you could almost admire it.”
The other day, as I was walking home from work, the sky began to darken. While checking my bag for an umbrella, I thought to myself, “Tut tut, it looks like rain.” (It was a kneejerk notion; it took some time before I tracked its origins to Winnie the Pooh.) That, in turn, led to Bambi’s “Little April Shower” running through my head, and…
The 4th film by Quentin Tarantino was released in two volumes and of all the films that this auteur has made in his filmmaking career, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 remains his most precise blend of riveting story, fascinating characters, pop culture references, wonderful homages & gripping action, all of which is seamlessly brought together by just the ideal incorporation of existing music to deliver an immensely enjoyable, wildly entertaining & thoroughly fulfilling cinematic experience.
Based on the character of "The Bride" created by Q & U (Quentin & Uma), Kill Bill: Vol. 1 follows a former member of The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad who, while pregnant & about to marry, is brutally assaulted by her allies and falls into a comatose state. Waking up 4…
Kill Bill is like a gourmet doublecheese burger: the perfect amount of ketchup accompanied by a delicious slice of cheese. Quentin Tarantino's fourth film follows the story of The Bride, who, four years after being shot in the head on the day of her own wedding, wakes from a coma and decides it's time to pay the bills. Having been betrayed by her former boss and by his deadly squad of assassins, this is a fight to the death that she did not start but is determined to finish.
One of Quentin's strongest features is the way he presents and develops his badass characters, and The Bride might be one of his best creations, but let's not forget the characters…
A bloody brilliant movie.
One of my favorites. I had the chance to rewatch this at my language school today. This time I was surrounded by kids around the ages of 10-12 who wanted to watch it as well. They were horrified. I laughed. I'm great with kids.
I decided to watch it again, as I watched it for the firts (and only) time like 3 yeras ago whern I was in that stupid fase of being obsessed with violence and also the "I hate happy endings. Ugh fairy tales. I am so alternative". But after watching it again my mind completly changed. There is too much useless fight scenes, blood sometimes looks like its coming out of a water spray nozzle. But well... at least the casted actual asian actors to play asian characters
"This tall drink of cocksucker ain't dead."
Quentin Tarantino's love letter to revenge, Japanese films from the 70's and an all near perfect action film.
Great cinematography and a mix of a lot of different movie styles. Perfect soundtrack. Elegant humour.
Another great classic. Quentin's script is so good it made me stay glued to the screen rooting for the protagonist. Like, literally.
So happy this movie exists. Blood and gore are two of my favorite types of movies (although they kinda coexist) and Tarantino is the KING of aesthetic violence. Brilliant movie.
While I like this movie, I still really hate how the brides name is bleeped out.
The film follows a woman known simply as The Bride (Thurman), an expert assassin who, while pregnant, was left for dead at her wedding by her criminal employer, Bill (Carradine), after her former, um, co-workers massacred her entire wedding party. Well, four years later she wakes up from a coma (as a situation that is as amusing as it is disgusting and brutal arises, I won't spoil it for you) and, upon discovering that she has lost her baby, becomes enraged and embarks on an epic odyssey of bloody revenge.
"Kill Bill: Volume 1" also exhibits another trait that is signature Tarantino: it's packed to the brim with homages.
It has over-the-top violence in the style of the Kung Fu…
