Here comes the Bride... again
More Uma, more bloodshed.
When last we left the mysterious 'Bride', she had left a housewife dead on the floor of her suburban home with a knife in her chest, and a Yakuza empress lying on the snow sans the top of her head. Of course, neither of those two targets was named Bill, so this story isn't over yet.
Kill Bill 2 will pick up where the first bloody installment left off, with The Bride (Uma Thurman) moving on to eliminate the rest of the names on her Hit List. With Vernita Green and O-Ren Ishii dead and gone, all that's standing between The Bride and Bill are Budd (Michael Madsen) and Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah). But suffice to say, if you thought the Bride went through hell in the first film, you haven't seen anything yet.
While Volume 1 was a tribute to Yakuza films, martial arts chopsocky and samurai cinema, Volume 2 is supposedly an homage to Italian spaghetti westerns- so don't expect any hordes of Crazy 88's or anything like the luscious Go-Go Yubari to make an appearace. Even the death toll will supposedly be a lot more toned down- the finale will be more personal, more serious and visceral. Or so I've heard.
Anyway, we all loved the first film; let's see what ol' Q has in store for us with the next. Kill Bill is set to slash into theaters this June.
