Kill Bill, Volume 1
An assassin attacked and left for dead on her wedding day seeks revenge against her former boss and his gang who tried to do her in.
I'm not a big fan of Quentin Tarantino. I think he's grossly over-rated. And I'm not a fan of violent movies, particularly bloody-violent movies (as opposed to action violence in the style of Indiana Jones). So why, then, did I like this film? "Kill Bill" is probably the bloodiest, most violent film I have ever seen in my life, but to such an extreme that it became like watching a cartoon. The cinematography was amazing, the score haunting, the plot not particularly deep and yet nevertheless confusing at times (but much will probably be cleared up in Volume 2). And Lucy Liu makes a bad-ass villain.
My grade: B -
