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
Quentin Tarantino originally intended to cast a Japanese actress to play O-Ren Ishii, but before casting began he saw Lucy Liu's work in Shanghai Noon (2000) and immediately changed O-Ren into a Chinese-Japanese American so that Liu could play the part. See more »
The scene in the end of the film in which Budd says "That woman deserves her revenge" is mirror inverted to that exact same scene in Kill Bill: Vol. 2. In Vol. 1 his face is on the left side of the screen whereas in Vol. 2 it's on the right. 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...

So many similarities between this QT movie and Sergio Leone's action films (once upon a time in the west; the good, the bad and the ugly). The storyline, the action, the soundtrack etc... There's nothing wrong in trying to imitate (or cover) a great classic, but what's wrong is the out-of-taste disgusting butchery and repulsive gore that prevails in this movie. It could have been as good (if not better) if the 'butchery' scenes have been made less explicit. For this reason I give Kill Bill a low rating.
