I went to see Kill Bill in the middle of a mostly mind-numbing convention. The movie did nothing to improve my mood. The level of violence--implied, threatened, and realized--overwhelms what could have been an interesting storyline. This is commercial exploitation at its schlockiest--before one can understand Kill Bill 1, one needs to see Kill Bill 2, where supposedly all questions will be answered (Who is the Bride? How did she become an assassin? Why did someone want to kill her? Why did they pick her wedding in the middle of Nowhere, Texas? Who is Bill, anyway?). I come out of few movies wishing I hadn't wasted my time, but this is one of them. Skip the DVD and find something good, like Master and Commander.
