Storyline

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 JD

Trivia

Christopher Allen Nelson, who worked on the special effects, revealed in an interview that over four hundred fifty gallons of fake blood were used in the two Kill Bill movies. See more »

Goofs

After the Bride kills the trucker who was trying to rape her while she was unconscious, she quickly pulls out the IVs from her arms as clearly seen, but in the aftermath her arms are not bloody or even black and blue. Both things would have happened from the IV lines being abruptly torn away from her flesh, or even in all likelihood if she'd been able to remove them slowly and carefully. So this is an error.

Quotes

[first lines]
Bill: 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...
[cocks pistol]
Bill: masochistic.
The Bride: Bill... it's your baby...
[BLAM!]

Amazing wonderful fantastic
17 November 2020 | by sjanders-86430See all my reviews

The music first is breathtaking. The action is mind boggling. The animation is something magical. I am going to see all of the Kill Bills. Uma Thurman redefines herself and every woman alive. This is Wonder Woman times 10. Bravo Terrantino you deserve kudos for this majestic work.
