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…
This film's very excellent, but it has a little matter...
...When Beatrix had came the hospital and she had killed 2 pepoles and said O' Ren Ishii's story on the car. Nobody searched her...
Bloody, stylized, and a hell of a lot of fun, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 is a fantastic homage to the martial arts and exploitation movies that Tarantino grew up on. It's of course incredibly well written, as any Tarantino movie is expected to be. The editing and cinematography are really clever and enhance the ultra-style that this movie contains. Throw in some of the most over-the-top action and blood effects, and you've got yourself a quintessential Tarantino movie.
This movie is so ridiculous and Tarantino's masturbation doesn't impress me too much really 3.75
One of those movies that exceeds my already exceeded expectations. Quentin Tarantino crafts his most epic and bloody film yet. From beginning to end, this is a pure masterpiece! And if you've heard how amazing the showdown at blue leaves is in this movie, it's even more amazing when you see it. This movie may even have trumped "Pulp Fiction" as my favorite Quentin Tarantino film of all time, and that's saying something.
If Tarantino spent as much time investing in three-dimensional characters and forming a plot as he does pandering to his stylistic icons, there might actually be more to like here. Indulgent, bloated and boring until the final act.
Hem d'admetre que poster no hauríem vist Dead Proof sense l'èxit i el banc de proves que vas ser Kill Bill, i això és una cosa que no podem passar de llarg.
Vista ara, i uns quan anys després de l'estreno, s'han de reconèixer els enormes i indubtables mèrits de la pel·lícula, com també l'incalculable valor de Tarantino per intentar filmar i controlar una narració fragmentada -o millor dividida- com si fos una set-pieces plegada d'estils i referències malaltíssament eclèctiques; més que el naixement d'unes maneres del tot pròpies, ens trobem amb la consolidació definitva d'un autor de 'referències' a un autor en majúscules.
Ara bé, la criatura no acaba de sortir del tot bé, i tot i essent divertidíssima…
What a film.
Kill BIll: Vol. 1 has so much to admire. Tarantino's hyper-violent/stylized work is an absolute delight. Viewing The Bride's journey to vengeance is as thrilling as it is mesmerizing. Never before have I encountered a female characters as compelling and enthralling as The Bride. Her strength and cunning are beyond compare.
I can easily cite this film as my basic intro into love of Asian films, especially Japanese. Tarantino essentially uses this film as an homage to Asian exploitation films from "The Flower of Carnage" to the Game of Death jumpsuit. It's impossible to not be charmed by his witty references and dizzingly perfect direction. The song choices he picks are so unexpected and so wonderful that…
A wayyyyy over the top masterwork of blood and limbs galore. Quentin is right in his element with his ultraviolent kung fu, grindhouse style. The Bride (Thurman) is exacting revenge on a group of killers who had left her for dead, one by one, in a cavalcade of samurai swordfighting and vengeance.
The style here is decidedly more over-the-top and ever-changing than any of Q.T.'s other films, but it's done in a dynamic way that serves the story, rather than just being self-conscious whimsy: it's not style for style's sake.
It's maybe the bloodiest film I've ever seen, in terms of pure volume. The structure is perfect in its direct thrust into action, but then backtracking for the exposition of all the fascinating villains.
Q.T. finally got his mojo back after the over-indulgent "Jackie Brown," creating a vibrant piece of art that combines excellent writing, memorable visual artistry, and the perfect touch. A thrilling, exciting work of cinema.
the Kill Bill movies by themselves are tough ones to talk about as once you've seen both you know that they are and always should have been one giant movie. i remember watching Volume 1 here in the theater and feeling like it was rather empty. I liked the wild fun style of it all but i missed that trademark Tarantino dialog and just wanted the whole thing to chill out a little. All makes perfect sense after viewing 2 knowing 1 is really just the first half of larger story.
On it's own, 11 years after it's release, Volume 1 stands as a blast of a stylish love letter to martial arts revenge cinema and has become somewhat of…
