Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 (Film Review)

Dec 2, 2011

Well, to wrapped up this weekend, what I have just thought is why not make 2 reviews today. Coincidentally, I was listening to Tomoyasu Hotei's Battle Without Honor Or Humanity, Kill Bill just pops out completely in my mind. So, yeah, I was bored and I guess I should make my review of the two Kill Bill films.

So before I start, I introduce you to Quentin Tarantino, whom I thought the most awesome filmmaker around when it comes to action and dialogue. He was probably known for using plenty amount of violence and plot that seeking revenge. What I love about this guy, hmmm, the dialogue. His dialogues are very well made and who would not forget Royale With Cheese? Also, Quentin is well known for his cult classics like Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill and my favorite Inglourious Basterds. I'm still looking forward to see Django Unchained and the rumored Kill Bill Vol. 3. For now, let's talk about Kill Bill Vol. 1.

Volume 1

Well, Kill Bill Volume 1 just tackles about Beatrix Kiddo also known as The Bride. Having revenge to her ex-boyfriend Bill after killing his husband and friends at a wedding. In the film, The Bride goes on a ride to kill Bill's former mates, O-Ren Ishii, Vermita Green, Sophie Fatale, Elle Driver, Gogo Yubari and the Crazy 88 Gang.

First, I really love this film than the second one. The film has more martial arts action and brutal, Tarantino gore stuffs. This is I think shorter than the Vol. 2, but I totally suggests that this could become more longer. There are I think 75 percent of action and 25 percent of just dialogue and talky scenes. I suggest you to watch this film before the second one. The ending is just primarily awesome. You should check this one.

The geek rates it 8.9/10. F**king awesome action. Fine dialogue. Good use of cliches. Awesome soundtrack. Awesome cinematography. Awesome direction. This is just the first one so, let's go more further with the second one.

Volume 2

Kill Bill Vol. 2 is just the conclusion of the bride, in search of killing Bill, Elle Driver, Budd and the remaining people who are also in search to kill her. The film is just released a year after the theatrical release of Volume 1 so, we, Tarantino fans should have no problem giving hopes for this one.

Volume 2 makes it to the not-so-best climatic showdown between her and Bill. I really don't want to spoil anything but, the 50 percent of this film is just a flashback on how Bill kill the bride's husband and friends and how the Bride learns how to fight.

Volume 2 is much more longer than Volume 1 so, again, I really want Volume 1 to become longer. The ending was not that predictable at all. I was really surprised to see that scene that I came to the point that wow, that was just not predictable at all..

Good dialogue. Fine action. Good use of cliches and stuff. Good direction. Good use of flashbacks.

The geek rates it 8.4/10.
