Kill Bill Volume 1 & 2 Blu-ray Review

KillBillSquareOver-acted, over-long and over-indulgent, Quentin Tarantino’s self-conscious “4th film” is a mixed bag, no matter how you slice it: for the first time, but not the last, QT’s aim was beyond his reach. A more judicious edit of his Asian-flavoured revengers’ tragi-comedy might have produced a masterpiece; instead, as with Grindhouse, Miramax sliced the film into two extended features, to reductive effect. That said, Kill Bill offers many glimpses of Tarantino’s maverick genius, which Blu-ray demonstrates to dazzling effect: sound and picture are as razor-sharp as a Hanzo sword.

EXTRAS: Nothing new: just the special features from the standard-def DVDs: ‘making of’ featurettes, deleted scenes, and music performances from Chingon and the 5,6,7,8’s.
