Did You Know?

Trivia

This movie reveals that 3 of the 6 members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad are not named after any species of Viper. Bill is Snake Charmer. The Black Mamba (appropriately the most dangerous of all land snakes) is of the Elapidae family. Elle's codename is California Mountain King Snake, a completely non-venomous constrictor. It is famous for its ability to eat other snakes, particularly rattlesnakes like the Sidewinder (Bud's Codename). See more »

Goofs

When Bill is making his 'superheroes' speech to the Bride, he states that DC Comics' Superman is unique among superheroes in that he actually IS the hero, and his day-to-day persona (Clark Kent in this case) is his ASSUMED identity. However, this is also true of Marvel Comics's Thor, who actually IS the demigod/superhero, and ASSUMES several human identities. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bill: Do you find me sadistic? 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. At this moment, this is me at my most masochistic.
The Bride: Bill, it's your bab...
[BLAM!]

Crazy Credits

During the (second) end credits, as the names of actors in the Deadly Viper Assasination Squad roll by, a line is drawn through each like Black Mamba did on her "Death List 5" after she killed them. Daryl Hannah is one exception; she has a question mark drawn over her name. The other exception is David Carradine's name - his name appears after Uma's in this set of end credits but does NOT get crossed out. See more »

A Tarantino Masterpiece
5 July 2006 | by (Spangdahlem, Germany) – See all my reviews

Over the last 40 years, I've seen a lot of movies. All types. Some great, some good and some mostly inedible; most left my breath with a sour smell. Westerns, sci-fi, comedies, dramas, etc. After seeing Kill Bill Vol I, I assumed that any sequel would pale to its predecessor. I, of course, was premature in my prediction. The movie was, by all means, a classic. I feel Taratino was really trying to make a great movie versus making money for his producers. To build his tasty sandwich, he took the lessons he learned from life as a movie maker and cleverly managed to meld some slices of meat from Sergio Leone (subtly), Akira Kurosawa (very subtly) and, I'm stretching it here, Ridley Scott, to create a great sequel to an excellent first movie. He used some great, almost forgotten actors (Daryl Hannah, Micheal Parks, and David Carradine to create a memorable meal. It was only a sandwich, but what morsel it was. I was full and wanting more. Very rare to find this type of film in our corporate world. He must wield some real power in the movie world. I don't know of anyone who has saw this movie who hasn't given it great feedback. And I know all types of viewers. My wife, who really doesn't like anything that is not overly melancholy or dripping with sentimentality, actually liked the whole movie. That in itself is an endorsement. Well done. Mr. Tarantino, you will be hard placed to match this gem.
