'Kill Bill: Vol 1'
(Uma Thurman, David Carradine, et al / R / 96 mins / Mirimax)

Overview:A pregnant assassin (Uma Thurman) named the Bride is shot by her boss, Bill (David Carradine), and her co-workers at her wedding (the wedding guests are also shot). She survives, though, waking up exceedingly angry after a four-year coma, and decides to hunt down and kill every single one of the assassins who were responsible, saving Bill for last. The three-hour film has been divided into two parts, this one and Volume 2.

Verdict: 'Kill Bil: Vol. 1' is a giddy and only occasionally brilliant homage to all the kung fu fighting Tarantino scarfed down during his movie-centric adolescence! Messy and frustrating a movie that feels incomplete in every aspect, 'Kill Bill: Vol. 1' is a strange, fun and densely textured work that admittedly gets better as it goes along! In fact, 'Kill Bill: Vol. 1' may be, perversely enough, the most gorgeous B-movie ever made!
