The acclaimed fourth film from groundbreaking writer and director Quentin Tarantino PULP FICTION, JACKIE BROWN, KILL BILL VOLUME 1 stars Uma Thurman PULP FICTION, Lucy Liu CHARLIE'S ANGELS, CHICAGO, and Vivica A. Fox TWO CAN PLAY THAT GAME in an astonishing, action-packed thriller about brutal betrayal and an epic vendetta! Four years after taking a bullet in the head at her own wedding, The Bride Thurman emerges from a coma and decides it's time for payback ... with a vengeance! Having been gunned down by her former boss David Carradine and his deadly squad of international assassins, it's a kill-or-be-killed fight she didn't start but is determined to finish! Loaded with explosive action and outrageous humor, it's a must-see motion picture event that has critics everywhere raving!
Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, Vol. 1 is trash for connoisseurs. From his opening gambit including a "Shaw-Scope" logo and gaudy '70s-vintage "Our Feature Presentation" title card to his cliffhanger finale a teasing lead-in to 2004's Vol. 2, Tarantino pays loving tribute to grindhouse cinema, specifically the Hong Kong action flicks and spaghetti Westerns that fill his fervent brain--and this frequently breathtaking movie--with enough cinematic references and cleverly pilfered soundtrack cues to send cinephiles running for their reference books. Everything old is new again in Tarantino's humor-laced vision: he steals from the best while injecting his own oft-copied, never-duplicated style into what is, quite simply, a revenge flick, beginning with the near-murder of the Bride Uma Thurman, pregnant on her wedding day and left for dead by the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad or DiVAS--including Lucy Liu and the unseen David Carradine as Bill--who become targets for the Bride's lethal vengeance. Culminating in an ultraviolent, ultra-stylized tour-de-force showdown, Tarantino's fourth film is either brilliantly and brutally innovative or one of the most blatant acts of plagiarism ever conceived. Either way, it's hyperkinetic eye-candy from a passionate film-lover who clearly knows what he's doing. --Jeff Shannon
