If you want to know what happened so far, see Kill Bill Vol.1, but actually, you need not see that film to understand this one, as Kill Bill Vol.2 starts with the event that started it all, the Bride's (Uma Thurman) wedding, or rather wedding rehearsal, where Bill (David Carradine), her old boss from when she was still an assassin, and his gang - Budd (Michael Madsen), Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah), O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu) and Vernita Green (Vivica a.Fox) - show up, and slaughter everyone in sight ... but for some reason, they fail to kill the Bride, but somehow manage to steal her unborn child that was fathered by Bill.

After four years in a coma, the Bride has found back to her strength and is now out for revenge, and after having killed O-Ren Ishii and Vernita in the first film, she now goes after Budd, who since his days as an assassin has bcome an alcoholic wreck living in a trailerpark and now even has to fear for his job as a bouncer at a third rate desert nightclub ...

Somehow though, Budd has expected her and greats her by shooting her when she tries to surprise him. The shot was not fatal though, and thus he drugs her, puts her into a coffin and buries her alive. Then he calls Elle Driver and offers her the Brid's priceless samurai sword for the price of 1 million Dollars - to which Elle even agrees ...

In her coffin 6 feet under, the Bride comes to and soon realizes she's in a bit of a predicament - but then she remembers her training by Shaolin priest Pai Mei (Gordon Liu Chiu Hui), who taught her how to pierce wood with her bare hands, and before you know it she has cracked open her coffin, and when the coffin fills up with soil, she somehow manages to use the falling soil to swim up (in a scene that's actually less than convincing).

Meanwhile Elle has paid Budd his million Dollar, but as a tip, she has left a black mamba with the money that bites him to death. Then though the Bride shows up, and before you know it, the two women engage in a sword duel that ends with the Bride poking out Elle's one eye (she has lost the other years ago to none other than Pai Mei) - which leaves her blinded in Budd's trailer ... together with a black mamba.

Finally, the Bride makes it to Bill's place - where he confronts her with her own daughter B.B. (Perla Haney-Jardine), and she is overcome with maternal feelings, and instead of killing Bill, she takes some time-out to finally bond with the girl ... and Bill lets her, being a good father to B.B.

However, eventually Bill and the Bride fight it out in Bill's living room, and ultimately the bride wins by delivering a deadly blow that took Bill by surprise ... and now finally, she can live the life of a happy mother she has well deserved ...


One thing's for sure, stylistically Kill Bill Vol.2 differs vastly from its predecessor, while Kill Bill Vol.1 was primarily influenced by Japanese genre cinema, this here has more to do with American genre films (and especially its low-budget variety) and Hong Kong martial arts flicks like The 36th Chamber of Shaolin and similar Shaw Brothers classics and early Jackie Chan films like Snake in the Eagle's Shadow and Drunken Master (incidently both directed by Yuen Woo-Ping, this film's action director) - and somehow this weird combination makes sense in the context of this film.

In all though, Kill Bill Vol.2 is inferior to the first movie, it lacks its style, its mind-blowing dynamic setpieces, and it loses steam towards the end inasmuch as the duel between Bill and the Bride is disappointingly short and unspectacular when it should have been the ultimate climax of the film.

Still, taken on its own, Kill Bill Vol.2 is by no means without its merits, there's plenty of excellently staged setpieces, plenty of unusual plottwists director Quentin Tarantino has become famous for, and some typical tongue-in-cheek dialogue.

As with the first part, this is probably not the film Quentin Tarantino will best be remembered for ... but it's one enjoyable action pic that does not insult the intelligence of its audience !
