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?

Different Yes, Bad, No
23 October 2004 | by (Luxembourg, Luxembourg) – See all my reviews

This movie is completely different from the first. Unlike the first with fast paced action and extreme entertainingly super-stylish gore, Kill Bill vol. 2 is everything that was missing in th first.

The Bride's revenge is burning strong and we can see it in her eyes. We discover the truth behind the wedding massacre and all questions from the 1st movie are answered. We discover why the Bride is the deadliest woman in the world. We discover why Elle is missing an eye. We discover who Bill really is. We discover the Brides name. And finally we discover the truth of the secret revealed at the end of Vol. 1.

Her first target is Budd. The loser bum ex-deadly assassin living in a trailer in the middle of nowhere. The short confrontation ends with one of the most terrifyingly claustrophobia-inducing (sp?) scenes ever...specially if you watch it in the dark. Then we are taken to the journey of how the Bride became the deadliest person in the world. We see the story between her and her hard-hitting very mean master Pai-Mei.

After a while there is the confrontation with Elle Driver...the Battle of the Blonde Gargantuants...as Uma Thurman referred to it in an interview. This one fight scene is almost as exciting as watching the Bride battling off tons of the Crazy 88s from Vol. 1.

Then the battle we were all waiting for. For Uma Thurman to Kill Bill...well I won't spoil it for you. Basically vol. 1 was 95% style 5% substance while vol. 2 is 95% substance 5% style. Very emotional and touching movie with a few key gore scenes...definitely a must see...
