The lead character, called 'The Bride,' was a member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, led by her lover 'Bill.' Upon realizing she was pregnant with Bill's child, 'The Bride' decided to escape her life as a killer. She fled to Texas, met a young man, who, on the day of their wedding rehearsal was gunned down by an angry and jealous Bill (with the assistance of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad). Four years later, 'The Bride' wakes from a coma, and discovers her baby is gone. She, then, decides to seek revenge upon the five people who destroyed her life and killed her baby. The saga of Kill Bill Volume I begins. Written by
At The House of Blue Leaves, when O-Ren suspects someone outside her private room, she throws a dart that sticks in a beam narrowly missing The Bride. When Go-Go goes to check things out, the dart is sticking in the beam in a downward angle when in the previous shot it was straight on. Also, considering O-Ren was seated and that the dart flew by the Bride at eye level, it would have been more conceivable for the dart to hit the beam at an upward angle, not downward. See more »
Do you find me sadistic? You know, I bet I could fry an egg on your head right now, if I wanted to. You know, Kiddo, I'd like to believe that you're aware enough even now to know that there's nothing sadistic in my actions. Well, maybe towards those other... jokers, but not you. No Kiddo, at this moment, this is me at my most...
Bill... it's your baby...

Arguably this should not be a difficult film to review. It is nothing less than brilliant. The story, the direction, the musical score, the casting, the acting, the dialog, the fight choreography, the inset homage to past films ... brilliant.
What makes this film tricky to review is not the film but ironically the film-maker.
I do not know the deep background here but I am guessing that QT, at the very height of his creative powers, locked himself in a cabin in the woods for a month and put this opus together. And essentially (in the view of this reviewer) not only created one of the best films of all time but essentially defined his own career by setting a bar so high that even his own future work could not equal it.
And there you have it. The hard part of the review.
The film is perfection. But in my view QT has yet to produce anything that comes close either in terms of final product or even in terms of effort expended.
