I thought it was a great film. The fight scenes and over dramatisation that are charictaistic of Quinton tarintino were done as always to a T. The characters and story making were also good as was the way they interacted ( the dialog). All that I felt brought the film down was the Music which didn't fit well in scenes and rewind the mood a great deal.
I do not understand how people like it. If this film had been directed by someone else, it would never be so much liked.
Tarantino's first foray into self-indulgence comes in the form of this hyper-stylized 'kung-fu' homage, the first part of which arrives with almost no substance or character depth of any kind. What you're left with is 'Kill Bill: Vol 1 (2003)', a film that manages to occasionally entertain with some wild action-sequences and pulpy references but often falls flat due to the fact that the thin plot is stretched to fit feature length. The entire movie seemingly exists just so that the extravagant final fight can still exist somewhere, outside of the second part where it simply wouldn't fit. 6/10
This film should definitely not be in the top 250 list. It was a nice film, time passed rather quickly, it was enjoyable but nothing more. I liked the casting, especially Uma Thurman as the Bride and the script was original and refreshing to see a female lead that is strong both physically and mentally. But all the gore, blood shooting out of hands like it's some kind of weird anime, the Bride basically airwalking in half the scenes, and her basically being ready for anything after her being in a coma for four years is nonsense. Furthermore, what's with all the black and white scenes? It seems Tarantino was trying to hard to impress everyone and make them talk about this film..I suppose I don't like Tarantino's directing style.Other than that, it's worth a shot if you like these kind of films, or Tarantino himself.
