Our Pick: Kill Bill - Volume Two
Why We Picked This Film: We took a day between them, but we hate leaving stories unfinished, so here we are with the 2nd volume.
Beeps: Originally, I saw these in the theater, but I have not seen them since. My initial reaction back then was that the first volume was far superior, and that the second volume was far to much dialogue and not enough meat and potatoes so to speak. I think that I was wrong, I enjoyed this a bit more than I did the first volume, and there was less dialogue than I remember. It does tend to get a bit long winded at times, but that's to be expected. So as I said, I think this volume to be superior to the first. Albeit, not enough to warrant an additional 1/2 star from me. 3 stars.
Apes: I liked this volume a lot better than volume one. There may have been less "action" but there were also less art school effects, bad music, and oddly cut scenes. As a plus there are also a few scenes in this one where they make Uma Thurman look pretty... that is a huge plus. I enjoyed the closure that this film provides and how nicely the story is wrapped up and I suppose it ends the only way it can. However, I think this is one of the few films I'd have prefered to make up my own ending. Overall not bad 3 stars.
Overall we give this film 3 stars.
