You may not like the content of the stories, but after you’ve seen a Quentin Tarantino movie, you know you've seen A Movie. The "Kill Bill" films are the product of a mad genius and we likely won’t see anything like them again this year or next. Is it violent? Yes. Is it bloody? Yes. Is it gory? Yes. Is it a simple story? Yes. Is it funny? At times, gut bustingly so. Is it disturbing? Oh, my goodness, yes. Is it a good movie? I think so.
If you didn’t like any of Tarantino’s previous films, stay away. If you liked them, be sure to see "Kill Bill Volume 2" on the big screen while you can.
[2009: Tarantino's reportedly huge ego shows up in all of his movies as stylistic touches, but even discounting those, his movies are entertaining with a capital "E."]
