Kill Bill: Vol. 1

Quentin Tarantino's savage revenge thriller blends martial arts movies, spaghetti Westerns and even Japanese animation to ingenious and devastating effect

Quentin Tarantino’s savage revenge thriller blends martial arts movies, spaghetti Westerns and even Japanese animation to ingenious and devastating effect.

Uma Thurman gives it all she’s got as a crack assassin who, shot and left for dead on her wedding day, awakens four years later from a coma and is all out for vengeance.

Exciting cinema for those with strong stomachs, this is brilliantly filmed and choreographed – and very bloody: the body count is 95 and 450 gallons of fake blood were used!

Kill Bill: Vol 2 screens on Thursday 7 June.
