A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
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: [long take] After the Bride leaves O-Ren's door at the House of Blue Leaves (when Go-Go returns inside) the camera follows her down the stairs through the bar, past the kitchen, into the ladies room; we then go out of the ladies' room, back to the stairs and follow Sofie Fatale along the exact same path to the ladies' room, ending with the ring of her cellphone. The shot is done in a single, unedited take. See more »
When The Bride enters the restaurant, she only has a T-Shirt on. When they enter the attic in the scene directly after, she suddenly has a jacket on. Also, Hattori is suddenly missing his headband when entering the attic. 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...

Gone is Tarantinos stylish dialogue. It's hard to believe the man that kept us entertained with a conversation about a cheeseburger is the same guy responsible for this.
It's in desperate need of editing. There's so much that should have been cut, apart from the end fight the movie lacks pace and feels stretched. Talk about Miramax cashing in! :(
Unfortunately unless you're in HK you will be watching a censored version which switches to B&W in the final fight as soon as the blood starts flowing. Thankfully fans should be able to pickup a R3 Uncut DVD.
The only thing I did enjoy was the music, end fight (colour would have been nice!) and surprisingly (the part I was most sceptical about) the anime.
Save your money, its only half a movie and not a very good one at that.
