Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2 (Quinton Tarantino, 2003 & 2004)

volume 2volume 1Watched the Kill Bill Vol. 1 DVD and then had to go out and see Vol 2 at the cinema. A wronged women (The Bride) seeks her revenge and boy does she get it. Violent. Very violent like previous Tarantino films. Lots of blood and bodies in the first film. Great sword play. 

Tarantino pays hommage to numerous martial arts films right down to David Carradine playing a bamboo flute (remember Kung Fu anyone?). The cinematography is quirky with the use of black and white, slow motion and japanese animation. That makes it so much more interesting than a standard Hollywood action flick. The second film is less violent and has better character development. Still keeps you guessing about what's going to happen next. If you can stomach the violence, it's certainly entertaining.

You need to see the films back to back as it's really just a single film.


  1. I've heard of a rummor that Mrs. Green's daughter (witnessing her mother's death) will come back in sequels. I'm only wondering if this is true.

  2. I don't know but I hope not. Sometimes, its just good to let a story end rather than milk another linked plot. That said, maybe there's some room for prequel :-)

    It would be like a violent and bloody Charlie's Angels.

  3. I just watched Vol 2 on DVD and I've changed my mind. There probably is room for Vol 3.

    California Mountain Snake isn't killed. She's blind and will want revenge. You can have the classic mother protecting daughter plot. And you're right that you can bring in Mrs Green's daughter.

    But if Bill is dead, can you really call it Kill Bill Volume 3?

    Maybe Bill didn't really die...

  4. I thought that kill bill vol 1 and Vol 2 were two of the best movies i have ever seen i am reserching a director for a collage assignment and i haver chossen you have fun
