Kill Bill Vol. 2
Kill Bill Vol. 2 is the second half of director and producer Quentin Tarantino’s colorful and artistic tribute to martial-arts films. Delivered in the same quirky, episodic format as the first film, Vol. 2 continues to follow the Bride (Uma Thurman) on her brutal and bloody quest for vengeance. Once the deadliest member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, trained by great martial-arts master Pai Mai (Gordon Liu), the Bride was left for dead after the assassins ambushed her wedding party and Bill put a bullet in her head, presumably killing her unborn child. But instead of ending the Bride’s life, the bullet put her in a coma for four years. Once she awakes, the only thing on her mind is to find and to kill Bill (David Carradine). But first, she must dispatch his Squad. Having already eliminated two members in Vol. 1, the Bride sets her sights on the two who remain, Budd (Michael Madsen) and Elle (Daryl Hannah).
Like its predecessor, Kill Bill Vol. 2 is extremely violent. The carnage is less severe than in Vol. 1, with more talking and less killing, but that does not diminish the sick and sadistic nature of the film. Apart from extreme and sadistic violence, Vol. 2 also contains some objectionable language, illicit drug use and Buddhist influences, all of which push it far into negative acceptability territory. Dove advises that your family avoid this film.
