Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) Review

Quentin Tarantino’s action-ecstasy spectacle served ever so mightily on top of a scoping and savage tale of flailing revenge, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 is the director’s samurai-scorpion-revenge flick, complete with ecstatic action set-pieces, female tenacity, and gorgeous spit-spraying blood. It borrows so much from the films of Tarantino’s youth and perfects it all in a ferocious package of death; an all around fantastic Q.T. effort, no doubt.

Uma Thurman plays an enthralling woman; a top-class empowering soldier seeking retribution and reckoning, and Q.T. paints a snowblood feature, a live-by-the-code virtue that spits violence and dignity within her. A weeping samurai strikes while spilling blood on the dead snow surrounding her cold, cold feet.

9.8/10
