Brief Synopsis – An assassin wakes up from a coma four years after being nearly killed with one thought on her mind… revenge.

My Take on it – Uma Thurman is amazing in this lead role.

She is able to make all of the various scenes and scenarios that occur here seem so realistic and plausible.

The story plays out really well and even though only the lead character is developed fully, it still stays engaging throughout.

The various way-stations that this character must visit along her journey tell the viewer so much about her life and how she got to this place and it’s done exceptionally well.

The action scenes are phenomenally choreographed and the “crazy 88” scene is mind blowing on and of itself.

It still amazes me how Quentin Tarantino was able to film such an exquisite sequence so well.

As with all films written by Tarantino, the dialogue is so enjoyable to listen to because it helps make the character feel even more real and genuine due to the kind of conversations that they have with one another.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The shot where the Bride splits a baseball in two with a samurai sword was done for real on the set. It was done by Zoë Bell, Uma Thurman’s stunt double. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10) (no change from original review)
