I had read a few reviews. Most liked it, but some said it was too violent and there was too much blood. I guess they didn’t notice the title of the movie.
I thought this movie was tons of fun. It was violent in the way True Romance was violent, except it was cartoonish violence at times. If you have watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail and how the blood comes spurting out of the knight (“It’s only a flesh wound!”), then it is that kind of blood. It’s hilarious.
There is fight after fight after fight. There isn’t much of a plot and not a lot of cool lines like in other Tarantino movies. It’s pretty much a bunch of fighting. It starts off with a fight in the first scene and the second to last scene is a huge fight scene.
Uma Thurman was awesome. Daryl Hannah is scary as hell. What the hell happened to her? She didn’t age well. Lucy Liu is cool and Vivica A. Fox didn’t last too long. Mr. Blonde makes a brief appearance, but I think he’s going to be in the next movie more.
There was an anime bit and I thought it was okay. I hate anime, but this didn’t have the annoying bits of anime that I hate so it was fine. I just wish it was shorter. It was a tad distracting.
I do love the way it was directed. I wish there was more dialogue, but the fighting was fun.
