The first thing you come across when reading reviews of this movie are comments regarding how gory it is. Make no mistake, this movie is gory, but 90 percent of the gore is almost like the old Monty Python skits. Had QT decided to limit the gore to levels that didn't verge on comedic, this film may not have been as enjoyable.
This is a very slick film, especially if you're a QT fan. The cinematography is excellent and there is a perfect mix of comedy and action. Uma Thurman does an amazing job in the lead role, and the supporting cast performs equally well.
If you can't let yourself laugh at over the top gore, then don't bother viewing this movie. If you can, then you'll enjoy this film.
"Kill Bill:Volume One" is the latest from film genius Quentin Tarantino, who became the most important filmmaker to come along since Olsen Welles. "Kill Bill:Volume One" isn't as good or memorable as "Pulp Fiction," but still "Kill Bill:Volume One" is a classic. Uma Thurman gave the best performance of her career as a woman whose out to get those responisble for the massacure of her wedding party. Yes there is violence and gore, but you kind of expected that from Tarantino. If the violence is still disturbing I suggest you see "Lost in Translation." instead. Now back to the movie. The violence is very well made and not as depressing as some of the earlier movies that I had experienced. I laugh at a few scenes. Tarantino really knows how to make a movie..a great movie. "Kill Bill:Volume One" is a must. Volume Two will be out in February. I can't wait!
I'm not a fan of gratuitious violence. In this movie, the violence was integral to the plot, so it didn't bother me. Also, it was very surreal. Uma deserves an Oscar nomination and the win.
Not a boring moment. It has lots of action and humor.
