Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

1.0 out of 5 stars The most over hyped movie ever April 20 2004
I wanted to get it. I wanted to appreciate, heck, love this movie as much as most of the reviewers out there, but it just didn't happen. This is the single emptiest, unsatisfying, pretentious, unredeeming pile of poser loaf in the history of cinema.
Now I AM a fan of Tarantino. The first movie I put in when I finally got the big screen TV and surround sound was "Resevoir Dogs". I dragged friends to see "Pulp Fiction". For a while he was pretty impressive. He's lost it in this one.
I know, I know. Everybody will point out all the "homages" that Tarantino pays to the "great" martial arts action movies, and to the speghetti westerns, etc. But when you blantantly steal a vibe or a scene, or even an outfit: pee on it, and make it meaningless, its not an homage, it's more like a desecration. It's not creative and new, it's derivative and dead. From the empty delivery of the intentionally hokey dialogue, to the cartoony wire-fu combat, to the puppety-looking sets and airline sequences, it plays more like a 60's batman episode. For a few minutes I was almost ready to credit him with making a great action movie farce. But it's too unmovingly violent, and too full of itself to even succeed as a satire.
Tarantino does use some editing techniques that, in a better movie, might've made a positive difference. Here they have just the opposite effect; using the directors mastery of technical detail to mock his inability to construct a story. Flash-backs, flash-forwards, flash-animations all stroll through the plot, not because they need to to tell the story, but because, hey, he's Quentin T, and if he want to clown-punch his way through a cinematic sequence then that's what he's gonna do.

1.0 out of 5 stars what a horrible movie April 19 2004
this definitly was not tarintos best movie in fact it was easily his worst i love all of the other quentin movies but this one had suck a horrible plot it was like he just thought a plot so that he good have an excuse to have as much fun as he wants with the action all though i did like the japanese animation part that was very good but as far as the rest of the movie goes you would be much better off buying one of his older films throught out the movie i felt like i had seen this before sadly i cant recall where also i kept feeling like something was missing from the movie like it was a sequel to another movie or something.
Basically in the movie uma thurman wakes up from a coma that she was put into after her family was killed at her wedding
she kills the janitor who has been raping her while she has been in a coma then she goes finds one of the people who was at the wedding and help kill her family so she kills her then her daughter sees and uma thurman says she was not ment to see that she leaves the house goes to japan to kill another member there she goes to a place where she trains and is equipped with a sword then she goes and kills the jappanneese girl and that is the end of the first movie
Everyone is sayiing this review is not helpful but you know what im being blankly honest the movie was terrible and if you dont like what i have to say im sorry im just trying to help people out there who are about to make a bad decision and buy this movie

1.0 out of 5 stars Glorified Music Video April 18 2004
First off, let me say that like most people, I enjoyed Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. In fact, I watched them several times without getting tired of them. I even watched Jackie Brown a couple of times. But I'm having a tough time getting through even my first viewing of Kill Bill. I have been watching it today 10-15 minutes at a time b/c it's just too damn BORING.
This movie is basically an extended music video, interrupted by bouts of violence and the kind of dialog you would expect a 16-year-old to come up with. Anybody who's calling this movie "artistic" is seriously lacking in IQ. Tarentino basically took a random sampling of popular culture and made it into a "video"-- I wouldn't even call this a movie.
All the Asian characters are caricatures of tired stereotypes. In fact, ALL the characters look and act like they belong in some lame-ass comic book your kid brother just drew up. To boot, not only does this movie lack a message, damn-near half of it is pure filler. By filler I mean half the time you're just looking at people sitting or walking or driving with music in the background. None of these montages advance the plot, so the only purpose they serve is to make the movie long enough for cinematic release.
The fact that most people are giving this 5 stars is a testament to the stupidity of the American public. It barely even passes for a 70's B-movie, big budget or no.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quentin Tarintino's Blood Feast April 18 2004
This is the movie you get when there is no plot, no story line, no meaningful dialogue and you have to fill 2hours worth of film.
It's bad enough that the director has to tell you what time line you are currently viewing and that ain't much help after all. Let's see, we were 4 years ago, 4 years later, two days past 4 years later and tomorrow 6 months ago. HUH? And don't forget the all important subtitles and animation he added to make sure you "got it". I think at the very least he could have spent a little extra money on the English translation of the English dialogue because otherwise I can not tell what the H--- is going on!
I finally "got" Pulp Fiction after the 12th viewing. I even managed to keep up with "Resevoir Dogs" even tho there were no subtitles and no Englsh to English translation. The actors even had characters to match their given nicknames! I loved that movie and have probably seen it ten times! BUT..........
I guess it's me, apparently this is a Testosterone flick and since I don't have that particular hormone this movie could not get past my brain sensors. I swear if I could have found where Amazondotcom hides the 1/2 and 0 stars I would have made good use of them.

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
