November 15, 2019
A gleefully ultraviolent homage to the B-movie martial arts films of the 1970s. It's pure bloody pulp fiction packed into a tightly wound feature.
August 13, 2019
The better of the two Kill Bill films, and perhaps the last film where Tarantino created a tight, tense and disciplined exercise in film narrative.

Here was a filmmaker who could have easily stayed in his comfort zone of smart-alecky banter between dudes but instead chose to pare down his dialogue and flex his visual storytelling muscles.

Watching Tarantino's films-and none more than Kill Bill-is like being stuck in a room with someone who, like so many of this director's characters, can't stop talking about the really neat parts in the movies he's seen.

December 28, 2009
A head-spinning dream project of extraordinarily bi-polar, nutso invention, Vol. 1 is a candy store rampage, cheering on Tarantino's fetishes as he built a colorful war machine of ideal double-feature dementia.

With its eclectic use of music and inventive mix of genres, Kill Bill is a striking and enigmatic revenge film visually and culturally rich and relentless in its action.

Something borrowed, something bloody. [Blu-ray]

A strange, fun and densely textured work that gets better as it goes along.

Even more gory and adolescent than its models, which explains both the fun and the unpleasantness of this globe-trotting romp.

I didn't leave the cinema aching to see Volume Two (out in February), though I'm interested to learn how things work out.
August 4, 2007
Kill Bill is a temple of worship -- a devout hymn of praise to crap cinema (which isn't always crappy).
