Do yourself a favor and watch them! The lead character, called 'The Bride,' was a member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, lead by her lover 'Bill. As Bill, Carradine has handed in his greatest performance to date. Everything from Volume 1 is explained. The movie was, by all means, a classic. Playing the reed flute that he carved himself from a bamboo plantaton he actually set-up while still making Kung-Fu episodes, Carradine's first appearance outside the small church in El Paso set the scene for the entire movie. Uma Thurman is perfect in the leading role, Darryl Hannah has never been this good before, ever! The movie is really a combination of Tarantino's love for the 70's over-dramatized Kung-Fu movie era and story of revenge with rich dialog.
They don't quite become real people here, but they get close enough to get under your skin. There's a sequence in which Uma is buried alive and trapped under the ground Through simple methods, like a completely black screen, Tarantino arises claustrophobia among the audience! Then there is either something wrong with my player, or there is something wrong with my disc. Madsen's good, though, and so's Daryl Hannah as another rather mouthy assassin, Gordon Liu as Pei Mei, and especially Perla Haney-Jardine as a girl named B. She, then, decides to seek revenge upon the five people who destroyed her life and killed her baby. And the best supporting performances come from Liu as the ruthless O-Ren, Carradine in a brief but intense appearance, and the wonderful, underrated Chiaki Kuriyama as evil schoolgirl Go-Go Yubari.
I disagree completely that Kill Bill is an English language title - Kill Bill is an international film and its subtitles should be treated as any other foreign film it was mostly shot in China and Mexico would be to American audiences. After having successfully crossed the first two members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad - Vernita Green, O-Ren Ishii, and the Crazy 88s, The Bride whose real name is now revealed to be Beatrix Kiddo sets her sites on the remaining three. Quentin Tarantino, you have seriously outdone yourself with this movie. It just comes up as a mess of blocky video with sound. Tarantino's entire Kill Bill achievement may easily be considered as one of the most creative and dared film-projects ever! They belong to me now.
Certainly Tarantino's love of old Samurai flicks is evidenced throughout, especially in the brief but beautiful silhouette-shots of Master and pupil training. No more burned-in choiceless subtitles, please! There are various plot holes in the story, but we are really meant to ignore them unlike most movies. Le chef de file est Bill, son amant. He commands our attention from that moment on. Cinema rarely gets this exciting.
Originally posted by Alan Smithee Well, thanks for the heads-up, now I know not to buy this. Tarantino even inserts a stretch of anime detailing O-Ren's background. Don't get me wrong I have no problem with player generated subs on a foriegn language film like, say The Rules of the Game. Tarantino, you will be hard placed to match this gem. As her story unfolds we learn that the mysterious woman had a really checkered past and was a member of an elite squad of assassins and highly trained in martial arts and advanced sword fighting.
She fled to Texas, met a young man, who, on the day of their wedding rehearsal was gunned down by an angry and jealous Bill with the assistance of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. Not only that, but as a Flamenco fan, I was both pleased and surprised to discover that the soundtrack features music by the famous Spanish gypsy Flamenco duo, Lole y Manuel, which was the absolute icing on the cake. But above all things, Kill Bill is artistic, beautiful. I have seen many people posting about the sheer amount of blood and guts, but you have to remember this was Tarantino's homage to Bruce Lee-era action pictures. And I know all types of viewers.
Bride ', est membre de l'organisation Assassin appelée Vipe. I love being able to turn them off on foreign films, especially if the film is in a language I can halfway understand, like French. Erinnerungen voller Schmerz erscheinen in ihrem Kopf - der Tag ihrer Hochzeit ist das Letzte, woran sie sich erinnern kann. I was very impressed with Uma Thurman's swordplay, at no point did I feel that it looked scripted or fake. I won't buy movies that have burned-in subtitles removed! He and I refuse to buy movies that have had their burned in subtitles removed. Four years later, 'The Bride' wakes from a coma, and discovers her baby is gone. Some great, some good and some mostly inedible; most left my breath with a sour smell.
I don't know of anyone who has saw this movie who hasn't given it great feedback. My wife, who really doesn't like anything that is not overly melancholy or dripping with sentimentality, actually liked the whole movie. Los Angeles, 2 Months Later, etc. After seeing Kill Bill Vol I, I assumed that any sequel would pale to its predecessor. There are times when burned-in subtitles are preferable, such as the examples Pants gave. Elle est venue au Texas, rencontre un jeune homme et décide de vivre une nouvelle vie.
