Kill Bill: Volume 2 Review

Synopsis:

The Bride continues her quest of vengeance against her former boss and lover Bill, the reclusive bouncer Budd and the treacherous, one-eyed Elle.

Quentin Tarantino‘s "Kill Bill: Volume 2" picks up right where Volume 1 left off. O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu), her gang, the Crazy 88’s and Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox) are now deceased. In Volume 2, Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah), Budd (Michael Madsen) and Bill (David Carradine) are the only ones left on the Bride’s (Uma Thurman) "Death List". Volume 2 goes into the story of what went down that day during the massacre at the Bride’s wedding ceremony. We learn a lot during these scenes, and everything starts to make sense. There are many flash back scenes (as well as some hilarious scenes where the Bride is training with Pai Mei). The Bride goes through hell to get revenge on Budd and Elle Driver, (she even gets buried alive!). Everything begins to make sense right up until the face to face confrontation with Bill.

The Bride goes through hell to get revenge on Budd and Elle Driver, (she even gets buried alive!). Everything begins to make sense right up until the face to face confrontation with Bill. Volume 2, although much softer than Volume 1 (gore-wise) is still pretty violent (especially Daryl Hannah’s demise). My favorite scenes in the movie are the training scenes, and when the Bride gets buried alive. Also, look for cameos from Samuel L. Jackson and Sid Haig (Captain Spaulding from House of 1,000 Corpses)! I enjoyed Volume 2 more than Volume 1. There isn’t much to say about this movie other than you should go out and buy tickets to it and see it as soon as possible, it lives up to Volume 1!
