Her weapons of choice: whatever is around—a lamp, a television antennae, a skillfully crafted samurai sword even her creepy, super long man hands. Her torture endured: painful—a shotgun blast full of rock salt, years of training, being buried alive. Uma Thurman’s character (who’s name is unknown until late in the movie) dishes out as much pain as she suffers in Quinten Tarrantino’s sequel to last year’s bloodbath Kill Bill Volume I.
“Bill” II opens by filling in the gaps in Volume I’s story line. We get to see why Bill’s crew massacres Thurman and her friends on her wedding day. In Volume II we are introduced to the Bill (Kung Fu’s David Caradine) and the living members of the DiVAS (Deadly Venom Assassins Squad.)
This movie is deeper, flows better and …

I personally prefer Kill Bill: Volume 2 to the first. That's awkward, because the films were intended as one giant film and were only separated into two because of the length… Well, I guess it's the better half then.
But with that said, it does also come with some faults of the first one.
I find it lingers, it doesn't have the same over-the-top self-awareness of Volume 1. There is a scene with truth serum involved, which I thought was just ridiculous, and I find the fight between The Bride and Elle Driver to go way too far. Even for Tarantino standards, that scene made me cringe.
Otherwise, it has all the goods of the first one and improves them.
The acting - which was great already - is perfected in this one. We finally see David Carradine's face and Uma Thurman shows what she …

“You’re not a bad person…you’re a terrific person …you’re my favorite person but every once in a while you can be a real c**t!”
The movie begins with a flashback of the wedding rehearsal. 'The Bride' (Uma Thurman), as we learnt from Vol. 1, is on a killing spree after 'Bill' and his assassins killed her soon-to-be husband, family and friends at her wedding rehearsal. In part one she killed off Copperhead (Vivica A. Fox) and Cottontooth (Lucy Liu). Now the time has come for evil and remorseless Elle Driver aka the California Mountain Snake (Daryl Hannah) and Bill’s younger brother Budd (Michael Madsen). One question remains, will she be strong enough to kill her former boss and ex lover, Bill?
She starts off with Budd, who apparently traded his 'killer-life' for a …

Pure poetry, pure adrenaline. This picture will always remain on my favourite films list. The dialogue, the props, the characters, the story, the soundtrack--all are perfectly handled (not to mention memorable) throughout. I know that a group of people decided to divide this movie into two, but I will always consider it as a one giant film. That's why my review for "Kill Bill Vol. 1" and "Kill Bill Vol. 2" are the same. Uma Thurman should've been nominated for an Oscar because she was extremely engaging and convincing as a bride who was hell-bent on revenge. Unlike most Quentin Tarantino fans, I think this is his finest film to date. I did love "Resevoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction" but they lacked an extra "oomph" that this film has. This film is over-the-top, cartoony, and relentless but I …

Quentin Tarantino must have some sort of mind control powers. That's the only reason I can come up with as to why this film has the reviews that it does. This is one of the most boring, slow moving, and pointless movies to come out in a long time. I'll grant the supporters of this film this much. It is well made. Outside of technical mastery though it has nothing to offer. Lame performances, terrible re-hashed dialouge and plot lines from a hundred different movies, and David Carradine. I really wish that Tarantino would have just made the first part of this and left the ending a mystery. Or better yet, just made a different and better movie in general. I hoped that Tarantino would come slamming back after this with something better. Instead he gave us Death Proof which was even worse.
