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.
“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…
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…
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…
i still have to see vol. 2
Always awesome. Fantastic story line and visually striking. One of my favorites!
The more I see this movie the more it confuses me.
And by confuses I mean that I just don't find the appeal, it bogs my mind the idea that some people consider this to be some sort of masterpiece or cornerstone in cinema. I guess the non-linear narrative and the wacky gore effects do the trick for some folks.
It also convinced me that Tarantino is a hack.
Extremely entertaining with great characters , amazing storytelling, and a style that makes everything so much better. Can't wait to watch volume two
KILL BILL is a masterclass in filmmaking. The way it so heavily induces other films, influenced by but never cheating, creating its own distinguishably dazzling pop-art manifesto. All of the performances here are great, particularly Thurman who never goes too campy with some otherwise outrageous material. It takes the art of "pure cinema" and transcends it into something even greater, more entertaining, and worthwhile. While I think, if to pick one, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS would be Tarantino's reigning masterpiece, KILL BILL is certainly a very, very close second.
The transition between styles deserves credit alone.
The violence, the soundtrack, the style...... QT has created one of the coolest and most memorable revenge thrillers out there.
Instead of feeling like a dull prelude, Vol 1 actually feels like its own movie. It's thrilling, funny, and action packed, and a full throttle ride from beginning to end (especially the end).
My favorite Tarantino movie (it usually waffles between this and Pulp Fiction, but in the end, KB is the first thing I think of). A love letter that makes me love this type of movie as much as QT does. It's all about Hatori Hanzo. It's all about that soundtrack.
