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...

An adrenaline-driven coaster-ride through gratingly bold and captivating martial-arts extravaganza.
Sure it's outlandishly violent and bloody. Can anyone expect Tarantino's
movie not to be a true mind-blowing, adrenaline-pumping shocker? Of
not! Gritty and slick, his first installment of KB rocks with moody
imagery, the '60s and '70s-era of Hong Kong martial arts-action, the
influences of the ritualistic samurai swordsmanship, and Japanese anime.
Like in all his films, Tarantino never fails to merge dark humor with
terror. It's impossible not to smile over the Shaw Bros.' iconic
introduction ploy and the De Palma-esque split screens. Observe the
blank-starry eyed image settled on The Bride's gory face as she's
to the audience. Perhaps, Uma Thurman in her yellow suit is a salute to
yellow-suited Bruce Lee in his last film, The Game of Death. Or is The
'Just another little Western girl playing at being a samurai' - as O-Ren
Ishii blatantly puts it?
This film's a sampling of the Tarantino 'fury,' short of the Tarantino
customary fiery tongue. It celebrates the Tarantino trademark of avoiding
the use of computer-generated CGI special effects. It's almost as if I'm
watching a colorful and bloodied kabuki stage that's displaying a
massive tournament of multi-layered kung-fu and female samura
styles to dazzle the audience. It's examining how Tarantino catalogues the
great stylistic elements of his favorite 'old-school' filmmakers and
transforms them into a phenomenally creative and mesmerizing film. Yep,
there's a great deal of captivatingly artistic boldness in this film.
Powerfully portrayed and not to be easily forgotten. Violently brutal and
gloriously gory without doubt, and yet so aesthetically operatic and
astoundingly artful. The music and lyrics that accompany the scenes are
astounding. They set the moods so appropriately with the events.
Even at 'The House Of Blue Leaves', we get to see Tarantino weaving the
artistic styles of Lucio Fulci, Chang-Che, Sergio Leone, Kurosawa, Zhang
Yimou and Busby Berkeley to bring the audience a stylistic exhibit of
remarkable montage grandeur. The themes of betrayal and revenge come off
strong. Every camera shot and scene seems to scream out, non-stop, `Kill
Bill and all of Bill's DVAS members.' My adrenaline's still flowing as
recalling the scenes. Tarantino has make a solid point with this film to
show that martial arts scenes should stick to the artful and realistic
choreographic treatment to sustain the true spiritual spirit of martial
