This movie went too western but who cares this is still a bad-ass movie

The second Kill Bill film is a perfect companion to the first. It's less action-oriented and fleshes out the themes and philosophy of the first film. When viewed in conjunction with the first film, Volume Two is a brilliant bloodbath of genre homages and themes of revenge and redemption.

The second part of the story is rather less action-orientated, and has the feel of film noir cum spaghetti western rather than the out and out chop socky action of volume one, but at the end of the day they are not really meant to be seen apart. Here we see more of the back story as Beatrix brings her quest for vengeance to it's bloody conclusion. I can easily watch both of these films in one sitting and still come back for more, while so many of the worthy but oh-so-dull film "classics" that pompous and self important film crtitcs consider to be so superior bore me to tears within half an hour. A film for fellow film lovers everywhere made with an understanding of and appreciation for cult film that is unsurpassed.

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 has dialogue that is …

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 trailer in the …
