The Bride (Uma Thurman) wakens from a four-year coma and seeks revenge on an assassination squad led by Bill (David Carradine) after they try to kill her and her unborn child. 


Like all of Tarantino's film, you  love it or you hate it. Presented as a bizarre action film, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 is fascinating, unforgettable and definitely not a movie for children.
In this film comes to attentions Tarantino's love for Oriental culture: martial arts, katanas and tributes to Japanese directors - the Bride's costume reminds Bruce Lee's in Game of Death.
The score, by The RZA, is overwhelming. The fighting sequences are spectacular, loved the last one.
The performance from Uma Thurman is brilliant. Lucy Liu manages to give a decent performance, and probably Tarantino has the merit for it.
