Tarantino's entire Kill Bill achievement may easily be considered as one of the most creative and dared film-projects ever! When I first heard that this film was going to be split into two movies instead of being presented as one as originally planned, I was angry. Rarely known a movie I've been looking forward to so much than Q. As the story progresses through this film and the sequel , you find out who she really, why Bill wanted her dead and the fate of her daughter. Of course, this is what he does in pretty much in all of his movies. As a fan of 70's martial arts movies, it was great to see all of the references. My favorite scene involves a Mexican standoff in an L. Very rare to find this type of film in our corporate world.
The actors in Kill Bill aren't Hollywood's best, but they each have their charisma and their typical Tarantino characters do the rest. Just like the gory scenes, come to grips to the fact that the most of the implausibilities are there just to fill in the gaps of the movie. Tarantino is building toward something here that has its payoff when Thurman's character finally has her face-to-face showdown with Carradine's Bill. Uma Thurman is perfect in the leading role, Darryl Hannah has never been this good before, ever! The lead character, called 'The Bride,' was a member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, lead by her lover 'Bill. There's a sequence in which Uma is buried alive and trapped under the ground Through simple methods, like a completely black screen, Tarantino arises claustrophobia among the audience! And, if you just don't like Tarantino himself, and find him annoying like everybody else, I don't blame you but it's still worth your while seeing.
I've never been a big fan of Vivica A Fox until now, and I used to think that Lucy Liu was just your average actor but she turned out to be fierce. This film contains extreme violence and sometimes strange dialog coupled with some pretty good acting and directing. Once again, Tarantino puts his imagination at work again in his story telling by using some of his old techniques like jumping timelines and some new ones like adding Japanese animation for character backgrounds. The camera angles are perfect. Four years later, 'The Bride' wakes from a coma, and discovers her baby is gone. I wouldn't really recommend this film to someone who is really not from the Pulp Fiction era. I had quite simply never seen anything even remotely like it.
Kill Bill involves a nameless woman Uma Thurman who is slowing seeking revenge on her former hit squad the Viper Squad and her boss Bill David Caradine. The plot also followed closely the plot of most 70's Kung Fu movies; something despicable happens to the weak hero whole village razed, family slaughtered, etc. Like I said, it was supposed to be a tribute more so than a gruesome action flick. Kill Bill involves a nameless woman Uma Thurman who is slowing seeking revenge on her former hit squad the Viper Squad and her boss Bill David Caradine. A lot more I would like to say but cannot, without ruining the film for any future viewers. I must also say that the soundtrack is brilliant and the whole film is just so well casted! Quentin Tarantino is rather extreme, yes, and it's lovely! They're songs we've never heard before, but feel strangely connected to.
Beatrix's Kung-Fu training sequences with Master Pai Mai might be considered by many, the high point of the film. Pretty much everyone who is in this film is ten times better than they've ever been. Even when fighting against more than 50 Crazy 8's, it replicated admirably the incredibly one-sided fights from some of the best martial arts movies made 30 years ago. What really makes this movie is Tarantino ability to make bad to mediocre actors seem like good ones, a smart and hilarious dialog and a good storyline. Yes, this movie is violent, but in a cheesy way. But above all things, Kill Bill is artistic, beautiful.
I've never been a big fan of Vivica A Fox until now, and I used to think that Lucy Liu was just your average actor but she turned out to be fierce. You don't go to see Kill Bill, or any other Q. If you're not a fan of Tarantino's films, you should pass on this one because it is doesn't stray to far from his other stuff. The baby that she carried before entering the coma is gone. And I know all types of viewers. The flashback sequences are never overlong, out of place or anything but chronologically correct.
It absorbs all of its elements equally and David Carradine's performance as Bill is the best thing to happen in movie villain history since, well, I'll leave that up to individual interpretation. But above all things, Kill Bill is artistic, beautiful. Like I said, it was supposed to be a tribute more so than a gruesome action flick. T's resumption of the Kill Bill saga. Squirting blood and flying limbs abound, but the director does it all with a breathtaking sense of style. From that moment forward to the end, this is the best Tarantino has ever been. Four years later, 'The Bride' wakes from a coma, and discovers her baby is gone.
Kill Bill is not realistic, but it's not meant to be realistic! With complete disregard for the conventions of filmmaking, he paints an expressionistic masterpiece in his own unique style, the likes of which the world has never seen before. As Bill, Carradine has handed in his greatest performance to date. That move, as depicted in Kill Bill Vol. The cartoon sequences seemed a bit much, but did fit in with the overall feel of the film. But after having seen both 'Kill Bill' and 'Kill Bill Vol. I was very impressed with Uma Thurman's swordplay, at no point did I feel that it looked scripted or fake. If you're not a fan of Tarantino's films, you should pass on this one because it is doesn't stray to far from his other stuff.
