Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003): Quentin Tarantino, Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu and Martial Arts

Kill Bill. Volume 1. 2003. Quentin Tarantino. Uma Thurman. Lucy Liu

     Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003) was an instant hit and was followed about a year later by Kill Bill: Volume 2. The studio had decided to split the epic film into two installments, otherwise the overall length would have clocked in at 4 hours. The film is an artful masterpiece, paying homage to both the Martial Arts and Spaghetti Western genres.
      The plot is summarized: A former assassin, known simply as The Bride (Uma Thurman), wakes from a coma four years after her jealous ex-lover Bill (David Carradine) attempts to murder her on her wedding day. Fueled by an insatiable desire for revenge, she vows to get even with every person who contributed to the loss of her unborn child, her entire wedding party, and four years of her life. After devising a hit list,     The Bride sets off on her quest, enduring unspeakable injury and unscrupulous enemies.
     The cast is great all around, including Uma Thurman, David Carradine, Michael Madsen, Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox and Daryl Hannah.
