KILL BILL: VOL. 2 (2004) GO! 9.30PM, AV15+, AC­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Clos­ing in on the sadis­tic Bill (David Car­ra­dine), be­trayed for­mer as­sas­sin The Bride (Uma Thur­man) con­tin­ues on her MadMax- like path of vengeance – two down, three to go – in Quentin Tarantino’s awe-in­spir­ing ac­tion du­plet. If Vol. 1 was the ul­ti­mate Satur­day-night drive-in spe­cial, then the adrenalin rush sub­sides for Vol.2, a char­ac­ter study in which spaghetti-western mo­tifs are spec­tac­u­larly jux­ta­posed with Tarantino’s pop-cul­tural ob­ses­sive­ness (just wait till you hear his con­cept of Su­per­man mythol­ogy). It all adds up to pure ge­nius, and Thur­man’s en­durance is noth­ing short of mirac­u­lous. ★★★★★
