What Tarantino started with a wham he finishes with a bang in Kill Bill Vol. 2.

Peppered with brilliance but erratic and indulgent, a structural reshuffle and disciplined editing could have resulted in a single kickass volume.

Those turned off by the first part's reckless, relentless violent purges aren't likely to find cause for conversion, but Vol. 2 certainly broadens the tale's remit, even as it aims to deepen it.

Tarantino's deliciously perverse semisequel is the most voluptuous comic-book movie ever made.

Here's a movie that both academics bundled in film theories and teenagers on hot dates will find supercool.

It may not extend the world in a way that proper sequels should, but it supplies interiors and intensity, providing characters room to breathe - and speak.

If you're Tarantino or martial art film fan you should enjoy this one. It has a plot that is both emotional and gripping at times and concludes the story started in vol. 1 nicely. It does, however, lack some of the action displayed in the first film (particularly in the bride's showdown with the crazy 88) and goes instead for smaller scale fight scenes...

As a companion piece to Volume 1 - Kill Bill 2 doesn't disappoint. Like the first film, it simply improves with repeated viewing. Violent, charismatic and thoroughly entertaining homage to Tarantino's favorite film genres - from Spaghetti Westerns to Kung Fu. Great stuff!

Not as good as the first but still excellent and explains everything from the first movie so be sure not to watch them out of order!
