Quentin Tarantino is one of my favorite directors. He is able to be completely serious at times, and then out of nowhere throw a joke at the audience that works every time. Kill Bill...Volumes 1 and 2...will become classic Quentin Tarantino films.

The story is a simple revenge story. A woman by an unknown name is trying to kill a man named Bill and his descendants for killing everyone at her wedding and almost killing her. It is not an original story since it has been done many times before, but it manipulates the story well. It keeps the woman's name a secret the entire film and has perfect pacing.

The cast of Kill Bill Volume 1 is spectacular. Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, and David Carradine are all very well known actors. They each give stunning performances and can see the blood, sweat, and tears they put into their roles. This movie was made of hard work and dedication by the actors, director, and everybody involved. Each actor did great and will be remembered for these roles.

The visuals of Kill Bill Volume 1 are unrealistic. There is a lot of blood and gore throughout this movie. If you are squeamish, then this is not the movie for you. If somebody was to get his head cut off, there would be fountains of blood. The gore looked more like a mist than actual blood. Even though they do not look real, does not mean they are bad visuals. They are still well done and used at perfect instances.

Overall, Kill Bill Volume 1 is a masterpiece. It was filmed beautifully switching constantly between live action, black and white, and animation. A lot of this film is sword fights, which are choreographed perfectly. The movie in general is entertaining and stupendous film making. Kill Bill Volume 1 earns my highest recommendation.

Next movie: Kill Bill Volume 2
