KILL BILL: VOL. 2 Last year Quentin Tarantino unleashed Kill Bill: Vol. 1, his brilliant homage to 70s kung fu, spaghetti westerns and action genre films rolled into a single story, which he subsequently broke into two parts rather than cut down to multiplex length. Finally Kill Bill: Vol. 2 has arrived to complete the tale. This time around, Tarantino has subtly altered the tone set in Vol. 1 by inserting pathos and clever dialogue to counterbalance the blood-gushing, bone-snapping over-the-top gore of the martial arts sequences. Don’t worry, there is plenty of gore, all stylised of course to mimic Tarantino’s favourite Hong Kong Shaw Brothers’ films. Uma Thurman is back, better than ever as the Bride/Black Mamba seeking revenge in a film that is really about love. Kill Bill: Vol. 2 is high velocity, visceral entertainment, a masterpiece of the ripped-off B-grade genre film with, again, an outstanding soundtrack.
