I’ll admit that Vol. 2 over exceded my expectations. From every chapter, it was more than I though would be there and was totally encased with the emotion. I actually cried when Bill died, that was a very good scene. I didn’t like seeing Pai Mei and Budd die either.
There are two things that I can think of that I question in second half of Kill Bill though. I don’t really care about the Michael Jai White scene, I read the script but I forgot what it was about. But after seeing the movie I didn’t seem to care. The fist thing was I didn’t think the Bride was scared enough inside the coffin. I mean she seemed helpless, but the “first draft” of the script that I read, led me to belive that she was freaking out! She was getting hysterical and finally she calms her self down and becomes that assassin again, then finally after we see her training by Pai Mei she breaks free. The movie is totally great the way it is but I didn’t think she was scared enough. Maybe I shouldn’t have read the script.
The second thing is about 2 seconds of missing footage that I thought was cool. I’m not sure why QT cut it out. The fight between The Bride and Elle. When they both have Hanzo swords and they are doing the stare down. When they clash, in the trailer it showed these long fast shots of them charging at eachother from the side and from the front, like Budd’s trailer was 3 times as big as it really was. MAYBE I’m crazy and I just turned my head at that point but I didn’t see that footage. All I saw was them clashing from the side.
And those two little itsy bitsy, teeny weeny things are all I question to QTs masterpiece. I can tell you with no ego that this is QT finest movie.
