Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!
In part 1 of Quentin Tarantino's delirious revenge movie Uma Thurman plays 'The Bride', a woman seeking vengeance on those who massacred her wedding party...
Inspired by countless Japanese swordplay actionfests (the classic Lady Snowblood among them), yakuza gangster thrillers (offering a cameo opportunity to genre icon Sonny Chiba) and Chinese martial arts movies (hence the knowing appearance of Jackie Chan contemporary Gordon Liu), Quentin Tarantino borrows from the best in order to shape his deliciously over the top cinematographic style into a simple but effective plot.
Look out too for 'Battle Royale' alumni Chiaki Kuriyama as Lucy Lui's weapon-wielding schoolgirl bodyguard and the gravel-voiced Shun Sugata (he of 'Ichi The Killer' fame who also appeared alongside Tom Cruise in 'The Last Samurai').
Homage? Pastiche? 'Kill Bill' is not just for movie anoraks, complete with all the super-smooth tunes that you'd expect from a Tarantino soundtrack it's definitely the most outrageously entertaining film yet from cinema's king of cool!
