Did You Know?

Trivia

Despite the Bride's name being bleeped out in Vol. 1 and for 2/3rds of Vol. 2. Her name is actually spoken or revealed on more than one occasion. When someone calls her Beatrix and it's bleeped, it is simply muffled and is still audible and if you're good at reading lips you may be able to figure it out. Also, Bill refers to The Bride as "Kiddo" in the flash back scenes. While this is both his pet name for her and a common term of endearment, it is also her last name. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the fight scene when Elle Driver retrieves the Hanzo sword from down the passageway, she throws off the sheath of the sword, hitting the ceiling lamp behind her and knocking the light out. In the next shot, the light is back on and the lamp is hanging perfectly still. 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 baby.

User Reviews

It transcends its genre and becomes Tarantino's most thoughtful and sophisticated work
15 April 2004 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

In my brief, initial review of 'Kill Bill Vol. 1.' I made the regrettable mistake of dismissing it as exceedingly pleasing yet unsubstantial stylistic masturbation, lacking the profundity and characterizations of Tarantino's previous works. Rarely have I been happier to be proven wrong.

What once seemed like somewhat incoherent cinematic recklessness has, after viewing the second part of Mr. Tarantino's saga, revealed itself to be wild, imaginative and brilliant filmmaking. As a whole, 'Kill Bill' is utterly unified (not despite but because of the radical shift in tone), possesses a strong, dramatic ark, and, above all, stands as quite possibly the most passionate, loving tribute to cinema I have ever seen. While part one pays homage to Brian De Palma, Dario Argento and the Shaw Brothers, part two cites, among many others, Jean-Luc Godard, Sergio Leone, and Robert Siodmark.

But that's far from all.

In his critical essay 'The Cinema of the Cool', Kevin Murphy suggests that Tarantino must move on and grow up to fully realize his potential as a filmmaker. In my opinion, with this piece, he has done so. Those merely seeking the blood-splattered, broken-bone action of Vol. 1 will be severely disappointed by Vol. 2, which is infinitely more thoughtful, pondering the nature of violence, both in cause and effect. While the action in the first installment was great, comic book fun, here it becomes severely unpleasant, cringe inducing, and never without consequence. If anything, it reminded me of the great Akira Kurosawa's work. Remarkable.
