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
The view of the trees through the windows of the Bride's hospital room (just before Elle enters as a nurse) is taken from I.D. (1995). See more »
When Edgar McGraw is in the chapel examining the aftermath of the massacre, he remarks to his father that "the name on the marriage certificate is Arlene Machiavelli". There wouldn't have been any marriage certificate as this was only the wedding rehearsal; Edgar means the name on the marriage license. 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...

Additional differences between the Japanese DVD vs UK Blu Ray Versions:
The opening credit 'Japanese Anime Production I.G., Tokyo Japan' replaces 'Special Effects Make-Up KNB EFX Group' and in the closing credits KNB replaces Production I.G.
When Gogo disembowels the Tokyo Business Man at the Bar, the blood spray goes on 1 second longer.
After Sofie has her Arm chopped off audio is the same but shot stays on Sophie spraying blood 1/2 second longer before going to the close up of O-Ren.
The Close up of Sofie spurting blood on the floor (Just before O-Ren says "Beat it Charlie Brown") is 3/4 of a second longer.
There are additional credits in Japanese after the English credits.

A lot of people have come up to me and said "How can you love Quentin that much, he is just too extreme!" or "Oh come on, Kill Bill is just SO not realistic.." Yes. No.
Mr. Quentin Tarantino is rather extreme, yes, and it's lovely! And No. Kill Bill is not realistic, but it's not meant to be realistic! Just like... Lord of the Rings, that's not realistic either! But because it has clear unreal elements, like wizards, it's acceptable?
You don't go to see Kill Bill, or any other Q.T-film to see "Stepmom", in the same way you don't go to a Marilyn Manson concert hoping that they will play some Spice Girls..
Kill Bill, both volume 1 and 2, is absolutely gorgeous! The art direction is beautiful! The camera angles are perfect... just Gorgeous! The lighting, the sound, the dialogs... and of course, the details! No one works with small details the way Quentin does. I must also say that the soundtrack is brilliant and the whole film is just so well casted! Uma Thurman is perfect in the leading role, Darryl Hannah has never been this good before, ever! And Chiaki Kuriyama, even though she has a quite small role, is excellent, even better than she is in "Battle Royale". David Carradine is painfully perfect, Michael Madsen is ALWAYS excellent, but never as good as when he works with Tarantino. I must also say that Sonny Chiba was great. I've never been a big fan of Vivica A Fox until now, and I used to think that Lucy Liu was just your average actor but she turned out to be fierce. Pretty much everyone who is in this film is ten times better than they've ever been.
But above all things, Kill Bill is artistic, beautiful... Perfect colors, perfect everything... gotta love it.
