Kill Bill Vol 1 and Vol 2 (2003 & 2004)


Uma Thurman

Directed by Quentin Tarantino

When it comes to a classic of the 2000s, Kill Bill was one of those. It stood out for its impressive fighting choreography, excellent cinematography, an on the edge script and a master in the directing chair.
The 2000s were not complete for us then until you saw The Bride or Black Mamba take revenge on her team who tried to kill her and her baby.

With Quentin Tarantino on the reins for writing and directing this four-hour long movie, which was then divided into two, Volume 1 and Volume 2 and released a year after each other.
The cast members were just impressive, the fights, the gore and the memorable lines will leave you captivated. Crafted more like an anime with enough enthusiasm to make you wish the movie had a volume 3. Kill Bill went ahead to be a cult classic with many praises due and given to the lead, Uma Thurman.
It was well received by critics and fans alike and a box-office success.

The movie plot was very direct and focus on revenge, as this action film starts with the introduction of The Bride or her code name Black Mamba. We see our lead beaten to a pulp and laid for dead with a pregnant belly. Her face was badly bruised, then shot her in the head and left for dead.
Things didn’t end well for her, as she survived it and was in a coma for four years.

She recovered from her coma to kill her abusers in the hospital and head off to Japan to get a new weapon for her revenge plot.
After acquiring the weapon, she decided to go after the easiest to find member of her crew. The leader of the Yakuza. She then got enough info from that one direction to help her go after the others.

The main directive for this revenge plot was to kill Bill, the leader of their gang who also shot her in the head.

There is little to nothing more I can say without taking the sting out of the movie, but you must see this movie again if you have seen it already just to be excited again.
If you haven’t been blessed with the knowledge of this movie’s existence, all your friends who were old enough to have enjoyed this movie owe you an apology.

Everything from the settings down to the combat is one you will enjoy, lucky enough you do not have to wait for a whole year like us to see how things turned out in the end. You can now queue up both Volume 1 and 2, to enjoy one of Quentin Tarantino’s best movies.
