A seasoned FBI agent pursues Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully forged millions of dollars' worth of checks while posing as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, and a legal prosecutor.
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
Texas Ranger Earl McGraw's deputy/son tells him there are 9 people dead in the Church, before they realized the bride was alive. Later, when Beatrix is narrating O'Ren's anime sequence assassinating the man in the limo, she says O'Ren played a part in killing 9 innocent people, including her unborn daughter, but she made one big mistake, she should have killed 10! The deputy should have said that 10 people were dead, or even 11 if he had realized she was pregnant, though it appears it's his dad that notices her pregnancy. 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 See more »
Probably Tarantino's most universal movie to date, with a little less character dependency than most of his films and a more linear approach than usual, Kill Bill Volume 1 is a great place to start for anyone new to his movies. I don't mean to imply this is a shallow film (far from it), i simply found it easier on the mind than Tarantino's other movies.
Uma Thurman, left for dead by her ex-boyfriend (Bill) doesn't die and begins her quest for vengeance, by hunting down Bill's gang members in a search for Bill. Armed with a Samurai sword and a deadly blend of martial arts skills, Uma delivers action, violence and passion as she plays out the character with beautiful precision.
Need i say, this is excellently directed, brilliantly scripted and cast, and should be in everyone's Tarantino collection.
10/10 Second only to Pulp Fiction. Although it has wider appeal (I think)
