Kill Bill, vol. 2, 2004

Kill Bill, vol. 2
Director: Quentin Tarantino
Cast: Uma Thurman, David Carradine, Lucy Liu

Kill Bill 2 in short: The murderous Bride continues her vengeance quest against her ex-boss, Bill, and his two remaining associates; his younger brother Budd, and Bill's latest flame Elle.

Stage: Home theatre, TV selection (yessss, finally they came up with some money for true movies)

Preps: Licking over Kill Bill, I know this is going to be good again. Quentin cannot make anything not to my taste :)

Reality: The movie is a follow up on the first part. Still some people to kill, still some revenge to seek. It is amazing, how a sequel can be even better than the first part. This is something a lot of directors aren't capable of. And sad enough, you get to see so many of them.

This piece is again, a rollercoaster of action, irony, hard trauma (we get to see the scene in the chapel to its details and I love this combination of the knowledge about something you get from the first part of the movie, connected to this piece). Uma is superb, her training is something almost everyone would go to, but wouldn't stand the pain. Her skills are something almost everyone would have, but wouldn't go through blood and dust to get it.

Some of the scenes are so direct and hit so hard in your heart you stand with mouth wide open (for instance the idea that you piss your trainer so hard he tores your eye out) or the revenge in sense of taking the other eye - the fight at the camper.

Music is carefully selected, so are the scenes (or lets say the sets) and the black idolized characters or items (the bloody Hanzu sword). Tarantino made a wise choice to split the revenge drama into two pieces, where you can see each movie by itself and you don't miss the action in another, because it has a complete story. If you combine the two, you realize it's one of those hystorically important break-downs in movie industry (like Godfather, for instance, or LOTR). Definitely something worth seeing a few times. You will always get new truths, new values and new impact directly in your bloodstream.

My personal rating: 9,0 (some of my personal favourites of all times)
