Recently I was contemplating making a list of my favorite scenes in film, but I decided that instead of just…
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.
Tarantino must've completely lost his mind after Pulp Fiction was such a smash hit. Kill Bill Vol 1 is insane, fast paced, and excessively violent of course. Nobody does action quite like Tarantino; his style is beautifully over the top and this movie marks when he started cranking the action above and beyond. After establishing himself, it seems as if Tarantino felt comfortable going all out.
Ultimately however, Kill Bill Vol. 1 is only half a movie, and this is strange considering the amount of fat juxtaposed throughout the Bride's journey for vengeance. For example, huge chunk of the film focuses solely on an antagonist's origin story, only to dismiss the same character by the end. It breaks the rising…
I always thought this was my favourite Tarantino. I chose to watch it on my birthday this year, after a few years. Maybe it's not. But it's still absolutely fantastic.
By far Tarantino's masterpiece.
Kill Bill: Vol. 1 was something I didn't even expect to be a masterpiece, but it did. While I already knew what the movie didn't explain based on the trailers, I still applaud the decision to keep the viewer guessing, on who The Bride is, who were the people that ambushed her and her friends, and if we should even feel for her.
Uma Thurman's fantastic performance as The Bride really helps this character stay anonymous and secret. You understand she is trying to accomplish something, which leads me to my next favorite aspect of the film
The story is told out of order; which is another thing that keeps you guessing on what is happen,…
I like asking people what their favourite Taraninto film is then profiling them by the answer. Most people just say Pulp Fiction, Hipsters say Jackie Brown, people who haven't seen City on Fire say Reservoir Dogs. Django and Inglorious Bastards are starting to get mentioned more. Anyway Kill Bill volume one is my favourite cause I personally think its the most stylish, has the coolest art direction, the bride is my favourite of his characters, the music is awesome and I love the cliff hanger ending.
Great movie, specially that animated japanese cartoon segment.
Reminds me of Naruto.

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I'm always a fan of a good revenge story, and Kill Bill does not disappoint. With Quentin Tarantino's touch, Kill Bill tells the tale of a mothers revenge on an assassination squad. A group of 5 that took everything from her.
This film is a stylistic haven that pays homage to Japanese samurai and yakuza films, the animation industry and even spaghetti westerns. It's just so layered. In fact, every time I watch it I find something new. From symbolism of Beatrix's outfit to the little things like the "Kaboom!" cereal that Vernita Green pours just before her suprise attack, Quentin manages to fit so much into the 111 minutes that the film runs for.
Its sound is another key…
