Starring: Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Darryl Hannah, David Carradine
Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, Vols. 1 and 2 are for trash for connoisseurs. Tarantino pays loving tribute to grindhouse cinema, specifically the Hong Kong action flicks and spaghetti Westerns. Everything old is new again in Tarantino’s humor-laced vision: he steals from the best while injecting his own oft-copied, never-duplicated style into what is, quite simply, a revenge flick.
Beginning with the near-murder of the Bride (Uma Thurman), pregnant on her wedding day and left for dead by the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (or DiVAS) including Lucy Liu, Darryl Hannah and David Carradine (as Bill) who become targets for the Bride’s lethal vengeance.
Culminating in an ultraviolent, ultra-stylised tour-de-force showdown.
