WOW. FUCKING WOW!
That Quentin Tarantino is a genius, we all already knew and those whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had their doubts should no longer have them after they see this film. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a freakinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ masterpiece.
Quick Intro to the story: The Bride gets shot on her wedding day by her former employer Bill and his band of assassins with whom the Bride once worked. She doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t just get shot, she gets brutally beaten and left for dead. Everyone there dies, her husband, the preacher, Ã¢â‚¬Å“the blind organ playerÃ¢â‚¬?Ã¢â‚¬Â¦.etc. She wakes up and then goes on a rampage of revenge. THERE. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all you need to know.
The story at times is terrifying. But only at times. However you do not feel shocked by what is happening all the time. There are moments of comedy that lighten the mood. But itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not a parody by no means. The Bride takes herself very seriously when she needs to.
Uma is Queen!!! The girl played her heart out for the film. She played it perfectly! QT did the right thing by waiting for her to give birth to her child before starting filming instead of choosing someone else for the role.
Another actress who was superb in the film is Lucy Lui. That girl kicks some serious arse. She is sexy, terrifying and hilariously funny! BY FAR the best sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been in a film ever. (She should definitely stop making those crappy CharlieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Angels films, she has so much talent!).
REALLY MINOR SPOILER- There is an anime sequence in the film about LucyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s character,(thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the spoiler, see, I told you it was minor) and it is this anime sequence that is the most horrifying. END
As you all know the body count in this film is highÃ¢â‚¬Â¦but not as high as the limb count; lemme put it this way: Ã¢â‚¬ËœThings get chopped offÃ¢â‚¬â„¢! But the real genius of Quentin is that he did not make this so we are shocked but it was rather done in a style that makes it appear as art. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s beautiful (and no, I am not a Psycho). When you see heads being cut clean off the shoulders you will not be shitting yourself with disgust or fear, you will laugh at it! As I said, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s beautiful.
Another thing that really stood out was the shots. The film is stylistically amazing. At times I thought Hitchcock was behind the camera in the selection of shots. (A massive inprovement on Resercoir Dogs which was still great). When I was leaving the cinema a lot of people were talking about this. I wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go explaining it, because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s best that you see it for yourself.
I guess I should mention the Japanese girl who wears the school uniform in the movie and in the trailer. SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the one with that chain with a ball in front on the trailer. She was really good too. Baddass Bitch!
The fight between her and Uma is quality. In fact towards the last 25 mins the fighting with the Samurai swords becomes soooooo good. And Uma really convinces you that she can handle that sword, that she isn’t just a pretty model waving this toy around. The action itself makes your heart race really fast.I should point out that if you dont like blood- stay as far away from this film as possible!
Kill Bill Volume. 1 is a great movie. A fucking terrific movie. It has Ã¢â‚¬ËœcoolnessÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ written all over it! Definitely up there with the Dogs and Pulp! I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t praise it enough. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a must see movie. The film pisses on Reloaded and Hulk and any other shit thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s come out this summer. Just a kick ass movie.
Out of 5 stars: * * * * * (without doubt). Actually I should say 6 stars but youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll see for urself.)
-The legend that is Michael Madsen was hardly in the film, but he will be in Vol. 2 a lot
-You see hardly anything of David Carradine (but QT assures us that heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be in almost every shot in Vol. 2)
-Little dialogue but the adrenaline rush makes you not care
