Uma Thurman returns for the second part of Quentin Tarantino’s epic tale of love, revenge and the fine art of killing.
Two of the Deadly Vipers have been despatched by The Bride. Two remain. And then there’s their leader, Bill, who might just hold the trump card that could save him from his former cohort’s fury.
If the first volume of Tarantino’s bloody revenge saga was all fury, this second volume not only takes pleasure is showcasing Tarantino’s brilliance at creating memorable dialogue, it fills us in on the backstory that started The Bride on her bloody warpath. We open with a wedding in El Paso that soon becomes a massacre. There is a mystical retreat, where each member of the Deadly Vipers received their training from a wizened expert in the forces that shape great fighters. And finally, there is Bill himself, not so much hiding from his fate as waiting for the day when she will come calling.
