KILL BILL: VOLUME 1 (2003 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Kill Bill: Volume 1—Uma Thurman and Lucy Liu at their best—introduces its audience to the formidable blood and gore directing and writing skills of Quentin Tarantino. This movie, not for the faint of heart or children, launches the female actress into the martial arts arena with a vengeance. The timing, choreography, cinematography? Excellent on every level. A good watch for the very mature audience desiring a movie that exploits violence to the nearly unwatchable level.

Storyline

Bill (David Carradine) shoots the bride (Uma Thurman) who carries his child. Unfortunately, for him, this bride lives.
