Description

Having dispensed with former colleagues O-Ren Ishii and Vernita Green in the first volume, The Bride (Uma Thurman) resumes her quest for justice in this second installment of Tarantino's jaw-droppingly violent homage to action films from both East and West. The Bride now has two remaining foes on her 'Death List', Budd (Michael Madsen) and Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah) - before she moves on to her ultimate goal - to kill Bill (David Carradine).

Synopsis
The second and final volume in Quentin Tarantino's KILL BILL series is another stylish, sprawling masterwork. VOLUME 2 picks up where the first film left off, as The Bride (Uma Thurman) resumes her quest to track down her former mentor, Bill (David Carradine), and exact revenge. But before she gets to Bill, she must first take out the remaining minions who helped to slaughter her best friends and fiancé. First up is Budd (Michael Madsen), a quiet but dangerous country boy who lives in a trailer. Next is Elle Driver (Darryl Hannah), a one-eyed vixen who doesn't appear to have a heart--or a conscience. As The Bride makes her way closer to Bill, scenes from her past are revisited, including her training with the angry and brutal Pai Mei (Gordon Liu). Finally, The Bride locates her man, sparking a truly unforgettable confrontation.

In contrast to the nearly dialogue-free first volume, VOLUME 2 is filled with extended conversations that bring the story full circle. Thurman is once again riveting as the determined assassin, while Carradine delivers one of his best performances ever as the sadistic title character. Director of photography Robert Richardson uses a variety of film stocks to great effect, adding even more flair to Tarantino's already eye-popping vision. Rounding out things is an electrifying soundtrack that features original music from The RZA and Robert Rodriguez, as well as songs from Shivaree, Ennio Morricone, and Johnny Cash.

Chicago Sun-Times
"[A]n exuberant celebration of moviemaking, coasting with heedless joy from one audacious chapter to another..."
Roger Ebert (16 Apr 2004, p.31)
Entertainment Weekly
"[W]ith VOL. 2, the erudition of Tarantino's audacious and triumphant project pays off emotionally."
Lisa Schwarzbaum (1 Jan 1970, p.56)
Los Angeles Times
"An adrenaline shot to the movie heart, soul and mind, Quentin Tarantino's KILL BILL VOL. 2 is a blast of pure pop pleasure."
Manohla Dargis (16 Apr 2004, p.C1)
New York Times
"[T]he most voluptuous comic-book movie ever made….It is rich, substantial and sustained, yet also greasy kids' stuff, a wrapper filled with an extra large order of chili fries, stained with ketchup, salt and cheese."
Elvis Mitchell (16 Apr 2004, p.E1)
Uncut
"Uma 'n' Keith share enough sassy lines and high-kicking homicides to hold you..."
Stephen Dalton (1 Sep 2004, p.136)
USA Today
"[M]ore widescreen-languorous and even contemplative. In fact, the spirit of Sergio Leone must be bowing its head in pride at 2's transparent homage..."
