I should start by saying I’m not a big Quentin Tarantino fan, but I felt like this is a big piece of pop culture, so I decided to watch it anyway.  There were things about it I really liked – Uma Thurman and Lucy Liu, mainly, and things I really didn’t – all the blood.  Seriously ALL. THE. BLOOD.  It was kind of ridiculous. Also, I didn’t like that it felt like you MUST watch the next film to get the entire picture.  I realize it was done like that on purpose, because the original script was too long for one movie, but it would have been nice if certain things hadn’t been so cryptic.

In my personal opinion, the fight sequences were too long to be enjoyable (not to mention, believable, but I doubt believability is what the director was going for), so I’m not really looking forward to Volume 2, which I’m sure will be more of the same, but I will probably watch it, just to know how it ends.  Does she Kill Bill?  Is she reunited with her daughter?  Inquiring minds need to know! No spoilers in the comments, please!

  1. Sighhhhh…that is such a cool movie (duet). No spoilers except that fight scenes are not as long as the O-Ren/House of Blue Leaves scene (yes, that went on and on and on and on….)
