Kill Bill: Vol. 1
Ah, I have always been a Tarantino fan. Kill Bill, in particular, is highly admired here at Popcornography. Uma Thurman sure is an angry one. Uma’s character, “The Bride”, is a former assassin who seeks revenge on her ex-colleagues after they attempt to kill her and massacre her wedding party on her big day’s rehearsal. Eish. That’s unfortunate. Uma manages to survive and the film follows her as she exacts her brutal revenge. And she SURE does get revenge on those who betray her. Heavens. This film, although graphic and at times unsettling, manages to remain fun and pays homage to the martial arts and western film genres whilst being directed with awe-inspiring style. As enjoyable as Uma is, Lucy Liu is amazing as O-Ren Ishii and her back story is explained through a very interesting anime sequence. Not to be missed!
Additionally, the entire marketing campaign for the film focuses around the bright yellow jump suit that “The Bride” wears while slaughtering her enemies with Hattori Hanzo steel.
Bloody, stylized, exciting, captivating and ridiculously funny. Kill Bill is just grand. I love it so much, I still have the poster in my room. True story.
