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…
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.
A lot of fun, but for my money, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 is not amongst the best of Tarantino's oeuvre. That said, I vaguely recall the severe tonal shift in Vol. 2 from watching it many years ago, so I'm looking forward to revisiting the second part of the story and seeing how it holds up.
I treat Kill Bill as one big film, rather than two parts. I'm doing this review of both installments though. Part one is a great b movie, although not one of Tarantino's strongest efforts.
[...] Gewalt spielte schon immer eine Rolle in Tarantino’s Werk, doch war sie meist ins Groteske überzeichnet, durch unkonventionelle Musikwahl entschärft, oder ironisch gebrochen. Natürlich findet sich auch solche Gewalt in KILL BILL wieder, die meterhohen Blutfontänen sprechen eine deutliche Sprache (vor allem die, der Huldigung des Fun-Splatters), doch teilweise ist es anders. Immer wieder tut es weh. Fühlt sich Gewalt auch wie Gewalt an und geht an die Psyche. Bereits die eiskalte Eröffnungsszene zwischen der Braut (Codename: Black Mamba) und Vivica A. Fox als Vernita Green (Codename: Copperhead) geht unangenehm nah, auch Buck’s unsanfte Begegnung mit einer Tür lässt einen das Gesicht verziehen und auch der obligatorischen Trunk-Shot am Ende des Films strahlt kompromisslos Hass und Kälte aus [...]

It's certainly a style over substance culprit, but my what style! Tarantino's love for the films he is homaging is abundant.
First of all Quentin Tarantino is my favorite director of all time and when i watched this movie for the first time i thought it was ok, but nothing special and when i rewatched it i will say this, this film is amazing. I so underappreciated this movie because this movies direction is one of the best i ever seen. Quentin Tarantino he is genius and there's no way around it. Every frame, every shot, every moment of this movie is directed geniusly. The fight scenes are done masterfully the choreography is amazing to watch. The cinematography is amazing. Scene to scene transition feel so natural and brilliant. And the movie just feels cohesive. What i love about this movie…
"She swore revenge. Luckily, for her, Boss Matsumoto was a pedophile."
A stylized, violent adventure film good for a Tarantino fix, but ultimately lacks the character development and plot twists that make him a legend.
I walked out on this one!
This movie was so cool! It was jam packed with different styles and it was beautifully done. I loved the storyline and the interesting cast of characters too. I'll definitely be watching Vol. 2 in the very near future. :)
