Product Description


Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, Vol. 1 is trash for connoisseurs. From his opening gambit (including a "Shaw-Scope" logo and gaudy '70s-vintage "Our Feature Presentation" title card) to his cliffhanger finale (a teasing lead-in to 2004's Vol. 2), Tarantino pays loving tribute to grindhouse cinema, specifically the Hong Kong action flicks and spaghetti Westerns that fill his fervent brain--and this frequently breathtaking movie--with enough cinematic references and cleverly pilfered soundtrack cues to send cinephiles running for their reference books. Everything old is new again in Tarantino's humor-laced vision: he steals from the best while injecting his own oft-copied, never-duplicated style into what is, quite simply, a revenge flick, beginning with the near-murder of the Bride (Uma Thurman), pregnant on her wedding day and left for dead by the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (or DiVAS)--including Lucy Liu and the unseen David Carradine (as Bill)--who become targets for the Bride's lethal vengeance. Culminating in an ultraviolent, ultra-stylized tour-de-force showdown, Tarantino's fourth film is either brilliantly (and brutally) innovative or one of the most blatant acts of plagiarism ever conceived. Either way, it's hyperkinetic eye-candy from a passionate film-lover who clearly knows what he's doing. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful film with beautiful steebook case May 23 2013
By don-hi
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The movie is simply stunning. It's my favorite Tarantino's film. What really amazing with Kill Bill (both part 1 and 2) is that the more I watch it, the more is getting better. I bought the steelbook case version. Even though it's more expensive, it really worths it. It's one of the most beautiful steelbook out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars A complete waste of 20 bucks! May 1 2004
By Jen333
I loved Tarantino movies like "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction" so I paid 20 bucks for the DVD thinking this movie would be great too. WRONG!! This movie is so bad that I had to turn it off after about 45 minutes. Probably only the 3rd or 4th time I've had to do that in my life, so that's pretty bad. It is very slow-moving and boring, and it constantly strays away from the point. You have to sit through about 15 minutes of cartoon-fighting which I thought was retarded. If I wanted to watch cartoons I'd borrow my nephew's DVDs. There wasn't nearly as much fighting or violence as in his other movies (at least in the first half) but of what violence it did have sucked. And the parts where he tried to make it funny were not at all funny. They were stupid. I can't believe this movie sucked so bad! What a huge disppointment. Don't waste your money - it sucks!

1.0 out of 5 stars Sick April 27 2004
By A Customer
I saw a few parts of this movie and had to stop. This movie was totally sick and twisted. It was total insult to one's intelligence. Save you time and money and don't watch this movie. If it were possible to give this movie less than one star, I wouldn't hesitate to do so.

1.0 out of 5 stars too violent and bloody April 27 2004
By Ben W.
I recommend a peaceful movie instead of "Kill Bill." How bout "The straight story" with Richard Farnsworth?

1.0 out of 5 stars Gratuitous violence instead of plot April 26 2004
By ScottS
When you boil it down, its just another Tarantino attempt to make up for lack of an interesting plot with a ton of violence. There's not too much here, even if you can stomach it all. Don't waste time or money on this one!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled. Don't bother! April 26 2004
While this is a dramatic shift for Uma Thurman and her own achievement in martial arts, don't be fooled. This is another Quentin Tarantino tribute to his own overdone "style" and gratuitously violent, intellectually stunted, and generally meaningless caricature (literally and figuratively) of the old revenge story. Nothing new here. Purchase at your own risk, but really -- don't bother! It's a waste of your hard-earned money and your time. Life is too short for this drivel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some amazing artwork with some unfortunate dents/marks.
I had previously owned both Vol 1 & 2 on VHS, so these were a much needed upgrade. The steelbooks have some really nice artwork and it was my main reason for purchasing them. Read more
