Consensus: Talkier and less action-packed than Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, nevertheless delivers the goods for those expecting a satisfying conclusion to this two-parter.

If Kill Bill - Vol. 1 was like a roundhouse kick to the head, Vol. 2 is practically a warm hug.

The pop encyclopedist and video-store genius has become a megalomaniac, and the exhilarating filmmaker he might have been is disappearing fast.


It has its moments, and Thurman is an appealing heroine. But on the whole, this is a disjointed, disappointing and monstrously self-indulgent exercise.

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.

If he doesn't take care Tarantino could make something significantly worse.

Sequel just as over-the-top explicitly violent.

I've lost my sweet tooth for slice-and-dice escapism, and perhaps this is why I feel the need to see movies that don't simply glamorize or fetishize or supernaturalize brutality.

A gargantuanly entertaining double feature.

Although it's a gigantic shame that Miramax split Quentin Tarantino's long awaited 'kung-fu samurai Spaghetti Western love story' epic into two halves, "Kill Bill Vol. 2" pays off in spades...

A more laid back not as quite as violent as the first but a solid finish to a nice tale. The entire why of volume 1 is laid out for you in a great finish.

It may not be the diabolical conclusion that many fans may have wanted, but in a storytelling sense, it is almost perfection. By the end of the first film I was… More

Regrettably, "Vol. 2" is Tarantino's most pretentious movie he's made. It's not to say that the movie sucks, but there's a certain… More
