Kill Bill Volume Two gets better and better

30 Oct

Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Volume Two concludes the tale of The Bride aka Beatrix Kiddo. The second installment takes a much different approach than its blood soaked action packed predecessor, which let some audiences down. The sequel is equally good, but it’s Tarantino’s dialogue driven script that completes his masterpiece.

Beatrix Kiddo (Uma Thurman) continues to scratch names off of her list, but Tarantino takes a detour into Kiddo and Bill’s (David Carradine) past that will eventually come full circle at Bill’s home. This back story helps build a climatic, but unusual ending compared to the other names. While the first film relies heavily on style, the second is all about substance. The development of Bill and Kiddo, as well as Bill’s brother, Budd, Elle (Daryl Hannah), the jealous competition, and Estaban, Bill’s father figure complete this tale of revenge with memorable dialogue and superb acting from the cast. For me, this film gets better every time I watch it.
