Kill Bill Double Bill
Director: Quentin Tarantino
Starring: David Carradine, Michael Madsen, Uma Thurman, Daryl Hannah
Release Date: Fri 09 Jul 2004
After surviving a bullet in the head on her wedding day, The Bride, aka Black Mamba (Uma Thurman), a former assassin, emerges from a coma and swears revenge on her old boss and his deadly squad of trained killers (played by Lucy Liu, Daryl Hannah, Vivica A Fox and Tarantino regular Michael Madsen).
Tarantino’s first feature for six years after JACKIE BROWN, KILL BILL marked a welcome return from one of American cinema’s most visually inventive and zeitgeist-attuned filmmakers. Married to the director’s love of the minutiae of popular culture is an indulgence of his love of the samurai genre, incorporating some stunning martial arts set pieces featuring choreography courtesy of the CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON team. In her Bruce Lee tracksuit, Thurman (for whom Tarantino wrote the part) makes a feisty heroine. The Bride continues her vengeful assault on the four assassins who left her for dead, she inches ever closer to her ultimate goal of laying waste to her former employer – and the man who ordered the hit on her – Bill (David Carradine).
