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…
Confessing you’re not a fan of Tarantino’s work is never easy, but here is one of those lost souls. If you’ve seen one of his films you’ve seen all of them in my opinion (obviously leaving Pulp Fiction out of this discussion) and nothing inside of me seems to care one bit about the lacklustre endings that finalise every single one of his pictures: what’s the point of killing every character if it isn’t even a surprise anymore? Kill Bill: Vol. 1 might be a minor anomaly for its sheer B-movie feel during its insane fight-scenes that even I cannot deny were entertaining to some extent, but to care about ‘The Bride’ is not something that I see myself capable. Perhaps that is not the point of the movie, but sheer action has never really been my thing to begin with. In other words, sorry for clogging up your activity streams with this. Love, Dirk.
This shit's seriously fucked up. I mean, who uses two Wilhelm Screams?

Kill Bill is the opposite of the last Quentin Tarantino film I reviewed, Jackie Brown. Where Jackie Brown went lighter on the Tarantino aesthetic to focus more on character development and plot, Kill Bill volume 1 throws any complexity out the window to go all in for precise style, and what a style. Tarantino employs all of his trademarks to create one of the (if not the most) coolest-looking films of the 2000s. Every jump-zoom is effective and every dismembered body is cringe-inducing. The film is also perfectly-choreographed in its fight scenes, making the audience believe that Uma Thurman is the most kick-ass woman alive. The plot is the sacrifice for this style, though. There is minimal character development of…
Great but I prefer volume two so sue me
If Kill Bill was placed in the hands of any other director, it would have been a disaster. More so than any of his other work, Kill Bill fulfills Tarantino desire to pay homage to other films. Kill Bill jumps from genre to genre every few scenes but some how manages to maintain a consistent focus throughout. I love the world created for this film, in fact it almost feels like we are seeing an old myth or legend.
It’s crazy, fun, funny, and yet really sad, heartfelt, and meaningful. It would be trough to find a film quite as fun as Kill Bill.
A wonderful re-watch with my parents, who hadn't seen it. They thought it was great, and I was a little surprised. Tarantino is my favorite director, and this is undoubtedly one of his best.
I can't really think of anything clever or new to say, just logging that I've watched the movie recently and still love it.
This isn't Quentin Tarintino's best movie. But that doesn't mean, that he is pulling a Shymalan. Even though Tarintino, hasn't made a movie as good as Pulp Fiction, he still makes great movies. He makes movies that are meant to entertain, not to be looked at as art. And Kill Bill proves it. Tarintino makes an entertaining flick with highly stylized fighting scenes with over-the-top blood and gore. The film has no message which it isn't supposed to have, and a simple story to follow. But of course, it's supposed to just simply entertain, and that's what it's good for. I really enjoyed it as a movie for itself, although I can predict what will happen in Vol 2
Decent Tarantino film. Vol. 2 is better, IMO.
