Goofs

When Bud goes back home to his trailer house, and "the Bride" is seen underneath his trailer, she crawls out and looks around for a bit - and then we hear a dog or dogs barking. It _sounds_ like 2 dogs are barking from inside the house, which makes him look out the window, and causes "the Bride" to hide against the wall underneath the window while Bud is looking outside. Minutes later, she opens the door and he shoots her with rock salt in the chest. There are no dogs in the house. In all of the scenes, for the rest of the movie, where we see the inside of Bud's trailer house... there are no dogs there. There were ALSO no dogs, in or around the house (or even the sounds of nearby dogs barking), when Bill visited earlier or when Bud left the house earlier that day to go to work. So WHY was there a sudden and mysterious sound of dogs barking (apparently from inside the house) when "the Bride" was stepping on the gravel outside, about to enter the house - after crawling out from underneath it?

A masterpiece by Tarantino.
1 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

I've been waiting to see this movie for so long, and when I finally saw it, I loved it! it was worth the wait.

Vol.2 picks up pretty much where Vol.1 left, except for some flashbacks explaining what really happened with the characters. Uma Thurman is back as The Bride, and we get to know her real name finally. Also Daryl Hannah comes back as Elle Driver, the one-eyed killer, Michael Madsen plays Budd, Bill's baby/loser brother, and the infamous Bill is played by David Carradine. The performances are just great, Uma Thurman delivers a great performance as The Bride, we finally get to know her character a little better and the true reasons why she wants to "Kill Bill". I also have to say that David Carradine was perfect to play Bill. He has great charisma and he's so smooth, it's impossible not to like him. Daryl Hannah's performance was great too, and Michael Madsen's too.

Once again the music plays a key factor in this movie, is very well selected and for every single scene the music fits perfectly. And of course, the dialogue. In this movie, we get a lot more dialogue than brutal fighting like in Vol.1, this movie is more centered in explaining what led Bill to do what he did, it pretty much focuses in the past, explaining the whole thing. I especially liked the dialogues between Bill (Carradine) and The Bride (Thurman), I thought they were clever and just great, like all Tarantino's dialogues. Also the locations were excelent, I have no idea where they shot the film, but the landscaping was great, I truly enjoyed it.

Well it would be better to see Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 as one movie, not different, because in the end, you must see them together to understand. So I give this movie a 10/10, I loved it, it was great, great dialogues, great performances, great fighting sequences, everything was great! And I think that Uma Thurman and/or David Carradine (at least him) should be nominated for an Oscar, they were perfect and they deserve that international film makers acknowledge that. Tarantino you are the best!!!
