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…
Super fun ultra-violent genre mash up. Doesn't shy away from blatantly using scenes from other movies and just sampling music from other movies. This is more of a strength than a flaw when handled by Tarantino. The performances are all fantastic. The action scenes are handled amazingly. You always see full actions without any confusing cutting despite heavey use of camera movement. I 'spose it's not news to anyone that Tarantino knows how to direct the Fuck out of a movie.
Everything I want in an action film like this. Blood, badass action scenes, and that Tarantino's stylish direction and dialogue. I loved every second of it and I can't wait to watch Vol 2
Final Grade= A+
The Vernita fight is underrated and I really enjoy it. Crazy 88 is still excellent as well.
This film and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 are Quentin Tarantino at his absolute best. The mix of styles, the tongue-in-cheek violence, the well-developed characters, everything. EVERYTHING IS GREAT.
I've seen this film so many times I have most of the dialogue memorized, I hunted down the soundtrack like a crazy person when it was released, and I saw it multiple, double-digit times in the theater.
I will never get sick of this film. Q & U forever.
This is a really enjoyable film, but I dont actually think its that good. It oozes style and you can tell Tarantino loves film and there are a lot of neat little things in it but its just not amazing.
Its just all style and kung fu movie references, which is good, but it doesnt make it good
Rated RAAM for Racism Against Asian Men.
”Revenge is never a straight line. It's a forest, And like a forest it's easy to lose your way. To let lost. To forget where you came in.”
THE BOTTOM LINE: I find that Kill Bill is better enjoyed when viewed kind of like a superhero flick (how else am I to believe that The Bride is able to withstand a bullet to the head, or fend off an entire room full of capable samurai sword wielding baddies all by her lonesome?) drenched with several nods to some of Tarantino’s favorite filmmakers—the samurai culture, the sword fighting action, the Leone-esque western style music—creating a compulsory stimulus for your senses. Unlike Tarantino’s movies that came before it, Kill Bill…
I feel like I've seen Vol. 1 a million times, but part two only once or twice. Can't wait to see it tomorrow.
One of those films you just know shaped your personality/interests for the rest of your life. In a good way of course.
