Trivia

In the documentary, "A Man Can Do That", Quentin Tarantino notes that Budd, in Kill Bill, was a nod to Director Budd Boetticher. Budd's sense of morals, is certainly an homage to those of Randolph Scott's in Boetticher's "Ranown" films. See more »

Goofs

At around and hour and 13 minutes Budd is supposed to be dead but we can clearly see the actor move his hand and breath. 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 bab...
[BLAM!]

Crazy Credits

The title "Kill Bill" does not appear on screen during the opening credits. The only direct reference to the title is in the conclusion to The Bride's opening monologue, in which she states that "when I reach my destination, I am going to Kill Bill." After this, the only title shown is "Vol. 2." See more »

Alternate Versions

Hong Kong version differs very slightly from the US version. The only difference is that some alternate shots were used in the scene where Beatrix drives to Esteban and the scene where she finally goes to him in the village. See more »

Less killing than the first but still nice.
4 July 2016 | by tankaceSee all my reviews

Kill Bill Volume 2 follows the Bride to its last target of her death list and although this movie lacks the killing spree of the first its dialogue and performance are great and we also learn here about her back story, why the Assassin Viper Squad tried to kill her and her relationship with Bill (it was more intimate than I though).

In general the movie close all the lose ends than the previous had left as well as giving us with a good way the identity of the Bride ,which was a secret during the Volume 1. So when the movie ends the story is practically 100% finished and I believe that Tarantino tried to do just that, made a two part movie,now the why I don't have any idea, but as the third movie in a franchise is usually the worst and some times destroys the story of the previous two, see for instance Spiderman 3, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines Matrix Revolution and X-men the Last Stand, I think he made a good choice.

In the Volume 1 the love of Quentine for the Japanese culture and the samurai sword was obvious ,for Christ sake about 65% of the movie takes place in Japan! In this one we see his love for the martial ,but we also have some nit picks of western ,like a sunrise and some more (No spoilers!). I generally like the on equal measure this two flicks, for are really cool and tell a story ark of an kick ass female assassin ,which isn't the norm as we have see in leads role women in a handful of action films, like the Alien and Aliens, Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day and Mad Max: Fury Road. In summary for the girls ,who want to show to men that they can be lethal, you can add and the two Volumes in your collection.

In short is a really good Tarantino film as it is usual with is director ,who is among the greatest of the last two decades.
