Out of the Blue

Kill Bill: Vol. 1 rocked... and this is coming from someone who is not familiar enough with most of the martial arts movies to which it pays homage. Sure enough, a consult with my buddy Abraxas, a martial arts movie maven, shows that the appeal for fans of the genre is even more extreme. Great stuff... basically like Fox Force Five without any vaudeville jokes.

So was I the only one disappointed in this mess? 90 minutes of cartoon violence, 10 minutes of characters slowly unsheathing swords, and 10 minutes ripping off other movies. Everything from Pink Panther to Battle Royale (and didn't that girl stab a guy in the crotch in that movie as well?). Where's the plot? Where's the fun dialogue that's the hallmark of all QT's movies?

Not a terrible flick - it had its moments - but it is easily Tarantino's worst. Soundtrack was very cool, however.
