Number of Times Seen – 2 (on DVD and 12 March 2013)
Brief Synopsis – A woman only known as The Bride attempts to seek revenge on her 5 former partners who tried to kill her.
My Take on it – Anyone who have read my previous reviews of his film, know that I’m a fan of Tarantino. Being that as it may, I think that through time his movies are not as good each time out. Reservoir Dogs (1992) was a masterpiece, Pulp Fiction (1994) was amazing, but after that he went downhill. Jackie Brown (1997) was mediocre , and Kill Bill just was one more notch down.
Since he wrote the script, the dialogue was done in perfect Tarantino form, but the story itself was too drawn out and made it somewhat boring (Don’t forget it was sooo long, he had to split it into 2 movies).
Uma Thurman is very good as The Bride. Very bloody movie which has scenes in black and white to make the blood seem less of a character in the movie.
Followed 6 months after it’s release by Part II
Bottom Line – Very good movie, but slightly disappointing since Tarantino’s at the helm. Still recommended
Rating – Globe worthy
