Ranked in the IMDB top 100 movies of all time, this first installment of the
Kill Bill movie is full of blood and gore that pays homage to the stylized art
of Kung-Fu films. Writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp
Fiction) turns the traditional action movie cliches upside-down, beginning
with a female protagonist who shows no mercy.
Unlike conventional movies, Kill Bill is told in chapter format so the
narrative flows more like a book than a film. On her wedding day, The
Bride (Uma Thurman), a pregnant assassin, is shot by her former boss and
head of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, Bill (David Carradine). Five
years later, the Bride awakens from a coma and sets out to seek bloody
revenge, striking down her fellow assassins, leaving Bill for last.
