I refuse to pit these two great characters against one another, but out of personal preference and favoritism -- Beatrix Kiddo by a landslide. Jackie Brown didn't exactly grab my heart strings at all but was a slick player and not a woman to fuck with. But not a strong emotional investment because this was crime caper film where Kill Bill delved much deeper into the psyche of the human condition.

Beatrix Kiddo is absolutely different than Jackie.
They cannot be compared, I think. While Kiddo is a deadly killer and avenger, Jackie dares to fuck up criminals with plans, but, I think, could never kill someone.

Yeah, they can't really be compared. They both kick ass in different ways.

I usually don't think i could kill someone, but i have been in a situation where i have been so blinded by pain and rage that i think perhaps i could off..and it's not a nice feeling.

Anywho, you can't compare these chicks. They both rock.

she loses all of her femininity
how so? I'm not trying to start an argument, but even as a woman, I don't know what femininity actually means, so I don't know how she'd lose it. Also I don't think she's lost anything, but she's gained a sense of specific purpose that becomes the most visible part of her.

It's like comparing apples to oranges.  Real world character v. fantasy figure

Alright people, let's break this down and stop this nonsense

The Bride: (in no order of events)
-She is a former assassin
-She effectively wields a samurai sword
-She took a bullet to the brain and overcame a coma
-Untied herself, broke a coffin with little punching distance and successfully avoided being buried alive after being shot with rock-salt.
-Sucessfully thrawted off Oren Ishi's "Crazy 88's" by herself, regardless the actual number of people
-Successfully eliminated all members on her "to-do" list, minus Budd (Thanks Elle, you bitch)


Jackie Brown: (in no order as well)
- "Don't take no for an answer", independent attitude
- Successfully pulled off the money-switch, and in doing so screwed over Ordell and the Cops.....basically shes just intelligent to boot
- Can stand her own and doesn't fold under pressure (When Ordell first initially came to kill her - "Now get your hands from around my throat ni****")

So who wins:

While Jackie Brown's character is smart with an all out attitude, you can't deny the fact that The Bride would easily take her down. Some of you mention that a gun beats a sword, but let me remind you that although Jackie Brown wields a gun in multiple scenes, she never really fires it. In fact, just before the final confrontation with Ordell, she practices her gun techniques, so she is obviously visually nervous. The Bride on the other hand, wields a weapon which she not only is well trained with, but uses effectively. Now had Jackie Brown and the Bride met, and Jackie Brown actually fired off a shot that hits B. Kiddo, you have to remember that she {The Bride} was shot in the head and over came a coma, and that sort of idea makes an intimidating statement for one's name.

So the Bride wins, hands-down.

And yes, they are two different types of worlds and settings.....but we can't just compare them without their respective setting, because then we wouldn't have any character development to base our arguments off.

Boom

And if I have to add to the argument, even though it really has no effect on one's physical ability to win a fight, Uma Thurman is quite more attractive than Pam Grier

The Bride would cut up Jackie Brown's black ass.
