Kill Bill, Vol. 1
2003
In the first volume of this gritty revenge saga, an assassin is shot at the altar by her ruthless employer, Bill, and other members of their assassination circle. But she survives and sets out to kill all those who wronged her, saving Bill for last.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Miramax extended their history of wrong moves by chopping what would have been one of the most triumphant and visceral action films of the year into two halves, denying us a coherent masterpiece. In turn, I will deny this film the credit that it very much deserves. It‘s an empty premise for a film with artsy ambitions, this “tribute” to bloody samurai revenge epics, but Tarantino charges into it full-throttle, giving us 114 deaths, almost all of them accompanied by gushing fountains of blood. The many dramatic pauses eventually become tedious, but when the actors do move and speak, wow!
