Uma Thurman in Kill Bill Vol. 1

Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003)

To say this Quentin Tarantino film is action-packed is a huge understatement. The writer-director melds his inimitable style to the best from the tradition of martial arts films and throws in his typical cooler-than-thou dialogue, and quirky, idiosyncratic characters. The result is a whirlwind of insane violence that never lets up. It’s a revenge story, in which a pregnant Uma Thurman, coldly left for dead by a brutal gang on her wedding day, comes back to mercilessly wield her lethal sword on the perpetrators. Vol. 2 takes a “gentler,” more psychological approach, leading to the denouement of the complex story.
