Watched 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.
