Kill Bill Vol. 2 kicks ass

I just saw it, and WOW. Beautiful movie. Do NOT expect a movie like Volume 1, though. Volume 2 is slow-paced, and is actually Quentin's most talkative movie to date. But the movie has a thousand times more depth and emotion than the first part, is full of great characters and character development, and it's just a fantastic film. And while there isn't that much action, the fight scenes definitely deliver, especially The Bride VS. Elle, which is the most brutal, intense, exciting, original, and best battles I've seen in some time. I can also promise that the titular scene will exceed your expectations.

I highly recommend it.

The dialog wasn't witty like pulp fiction. The action wasn't intense like vol 1 (in fact there was no action), the story telling wasn't suberb like in reservoir dogs.

vol 2 was sloooow and at the very least 40 minutes too long. I dont get why this movie is so popular, I was extremely bored while watching it.

No action? She gets shot by a shotgun, Budd gets attacked by a snake, there is a swordfight between Elle and Beatrix, and a chair-swordfight with Bill.

Slow? Try watching Jackie Brown. That movie is 2.5 hours and NOTHING HAPPENS!


I prefered volume two. I think as a whole Kill Bill is Tarantino's best movie, followed very closely by Pulp Fiction and Resevoir Dogs... with Jackie Brown way behind.

yeah but all that totaled about 6 minutes not to mention the fight with Bill was completely lame. The other 2 hours+ of the movie was generally boring with the exception of a couple scenes (like the burying scene when the screen was completely black-was a cool scene)

Any idea when Volume 2 comes out on DVD? I somehow doubt that I will catch it in theaters over here. :)

Volume 1 kicked ass.

Not soon enough.


I heard a rumour that the reason that the huge fight scene in Vol. 1 was mostly in black and white was because it was too bloody, and they wanted to avoid an NC-17 rating. Do you think we'll get a colour version in a special edition DVD?

Yea I loved Volume 2, I thought it was a great way to end the story, and it was "boring" because they had to explain everything, besides QT threw in a nice mix of comedy and action.

*Spoiler*(a bad spoiler too cause I cant remember the dialogue that well)

-Bud:You know she killed those crazy 88 guys.
-Bill: There really weren't 88 of them you know.
-Bud:Then why were they called the crazy 88?
-Bill:I dont know I guess they thought it was COOL or something.


Plus how can you go wrong with Pai Mei

Vol 2 was great. And if you thought it was too slow, you might wanna get checked for ADD.
sorry you feel the need to insult me but that movie was boring. Here is an example of the dialog in the movie:

Bill: "Why did you leave me?"
Uma: "I found out I was pregnant. Why did you kill me?"
Bill:"I overreacted."

Okay now take that dialogue, and stretch it across fifteen minutes of film time, with long pauses in between sentences. I loved the dialog in pulp fiction, but this was boring.

I think the fact that there was more story to it and less brutal violence is why it was good. Don't get me wrong. I like violent movies. And I love sword fights. But there is such thing as too much. If you want to talk realistically, real samurai fights didn't last long at all and definately not as long as the ones in the first movie. The the winner usually killed his opponent in no more than 2, maybe 3 moves.

But remember why the first Matrix was so much better than the other two? There was an actual story line involved and while there was some very good fight scenes, it was not excessive. The other two had almost nothing but fight scenes which eventually ruined the movie.
