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.
