Vol. 2 was simply fucking awesome. Ã‚Â I think it’s better than Vol. 1, and I came away not with a feeling of exhileration (like the first one), but with a sense of connection with the characters. Ã‚Â Uma is incredible, as is David Carradine. Ã‚Â Michael Madson is even better than I thought he would be, and the fight between Elle and Beatrix was even meaner than I thought it would be.

Thats exactly what it should be seen as. Kill Bill started as just a Grindhouse film and with Volume 2 really became something more than that. It was necessary to get to know more about the characters than just watching them fight and thats it. There was enough interaction between them to answer the questions left over from Volume 1, and the last chapter with Bill totally evens the film out in my opinion and it closes the story wonderfully with an uplifting vibe. And theres nothing wrong with that.
It changed from just a Revenge film into a tragic love story. Therein lies QT's genius as a storyteller and cinematic manipulator.
