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 desert, working as a bouncer/toilet cleaner in a local bar. But Budd knows The Bride is coming for revenge, so when The Bride is planning to surprise him, he's way ahead of her, shoots her down and buries her 6 feet under. When she was in the coffin how many of you thought "How is she going to get out of this?" then they cut perfectly to her training and it all made sense.
Her return trip to Budd's trailer home gave us that eye popping, splendidly awesome catfight scene against Elle. It's one of the action highlights of the picture, and you'll definitely want to keep an eye out for it.
All in all, the two movies together tell a great story. The body count isn't as high as it was in "Vol. 1," but there's still plenty of gore and pain. You also get a cracking good flash back when the Bride is sent to train with Master Pai Mei (Gordon Liu).
