Synopsis
Perhaps the most highly anticipated film of 2003, Kill Bill Vol. 1 marked the return of renowned filmmaker Quentin Tarantino after a six-year hiatus. Re-teaming the director with Uma Thurman for the first time since 1994's Pulp Fiction, the film was originally the first half of what was to be a three-hour-plus movie before being split into two films. Thurman stars as The Bride, one-fifth of a team of assassins called DiVAS. When The Bride opts to leave the outfit for a life of marital bliss, it doesn't sit well with her boss, Bill (David Carradine), so he has her former cohorts, played by Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox, Daryl Hannah, and Michael Madsen, show up at the nuptials, leaving behind a blood bath. Miraculously, The Bride survives a bullet to the head and, four years later, she sets out for revenge against her four assassins and their employer. The story is concluded in Kill Bill Vol. 2, released six months later. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide

Check out the "making of kill bill" special feature if you liked the movie a lot. It suffers from the usual boring clips-you-just-watched and stars talking up other stars, but it also has a few worthwhile anecdotes. Better than most making-of filler.

I loved every minute of this movie. It was an extremely entertaining ride. I loved the acting, the music, and most of all the great over-the-top fights in it. Its just plain fun to watch. I can definatly see myself rewatching this many many times.

I guess what im trying to say is: GO SEE IT NOW! :)

Clearly intended as an homage to contemporary Hong Kong cinema as well as to 70?s chop-socky, spaghetti westerns, and Kurosawa, Kill Bill manages to somehow miss the point of all of the above. Apologists will no doubt assert that the bad dialog and laughably obvious stunt doubles are intentional ? that the director is having fun with hallmarks of pulp. This might have worked if Tarantino wasn?t trying to have it both ways. We?re supposed to laugh at the bad stuff and also be wowed by CGI shots that would have been impossible even 10 years ago. The director seems not to realize that juxtaposing the two reflects badly on both. (After seeing a bullet-perspective shot, it?s insulting to be made to watch 10 guys aimlessly waving their swords in the background while a one-on-one fight transpires up front.) There?s something snotty about mocking pulp conventions and then lording a vast budget and sophisticated technology over directors who did not have these tools at their disposal.

Motorcycles in the movies! Some of these films are all about bikes, some only have a scene or two, but are still cool.
