The perfectexample of a Quentin Tarantino masterpiece, this Martial Arts film portrays theincredulously strong and Adamantine Assassin Beatrix Kiddo (Codename: BlackMamba), who sets upon a vengeful mission to kill those who did her wrong.As apregnant bride who tries to put her past behind and start a new life in ElPaso, Texas, she is interrupted by the members of her former gang- The DeadlyViper Gang. Everybody at the wedding is shot dead, except for Beatrix, whosurvives but gets into a coma.
She wakesup from a coma after four years, gets assaulted, poisoned, and buried alive,but nothing- absolutely nothing, would stop her from completing her mission.A FormerAssassin current homemaker Vernita Green (Copperhead), Leader of the Japaneseunderworld Yakuza clan O-Ren Ishii (Cotton Mouth), a One-eyed punk Elle(California Mountain Snake), an Ex-con Casino worker Budd (Sidewinder) and herFormer lover/Leader Bill (Snake Charmer) are her targets, whose names shestrikes off on her list, after killing them. Beatrix’s rationale and vindication behindseeking revenge is established within the two volumes of the movie, so I am notcondoning a film that has violence portrayed in an uninhibited manner.
Thedirecting of the film is outstanding, which is rather redundant once Imentioned that it was directed by Quentin Tarantino. Influences taken from Kung-fumovies, Blaxploitation, Spaghetti westerns, SamuraiCinema, American Crime films, and Anime, KillBill pays an Ernest homage to the above mentioned styles of moviemaking. With akiller soundtrack adapted from the work of legends such as Ennio Morricone andNancy Sinatra, and captivating stunts with Japanese swords and Chinese Kung Fu,Uma Thurman slays as Kiddo, moving the audience to feel her pain and anger, andsit at the edge of their seats, every time she utters the words “You and I haveunfinished business.”I watchKill Bill whenever I feel weak or incapable, as it gets me pumped up and highwith adrenaline rush.
