The Better Half
It’s a matter of some debate which volume of Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” is better. Let’s end the argument right now: David Carradine doesn’t even appear in “Volume 1.” Hasn’t the Academy mailed him his Best Supporting Actor Oscar already?
In the first volume of “Kill Bill,” released only a few months before “Vol. 2” in the tail end of 2003, we met Uma Thurman, one peeded-off super-assassin taking out some folks from her past one at a time, with the occasional mega-posse thrown in for interest. “Vol. 1” had a lot of blood, violence, and wisecracks, and galloped across the screen like a rap video on steroids.
“Vol. 2” is way different. It makes sense it’s a separate movie; the tone is such a departure from “Vol. 1” in two ways. One is style. Director Tarantino has fun stylistically quoting Sergio Leone and chop-fu cheapos from the late 1960s and early 1970s. Cinematic sampling is something he’s good at and enjoys, but in “Vol. 2” he doesn’t go as overboard as he does in “Vol. 1.” He pulls back and lets the plot breathe, rather than filling every spare second with a homage-cum-parody that maybe a dozen lucky fans will get. Maybe some here wish he’d pile it on a bit more, but they have to make do with the goofy Pei Mai sequence, which is a flashback and hence not jarring in its “Vol. 1”-style comic-book treatment. Throughout “Vol. 2” the emphasis is on storytelling and character-building, which is where it should be given we are now being asked to deepen our commitment of interest to these people. “Vol. 1” is okay for what it is, but its flash and action are no match for the depth and nuance of “Vol. 2.”
This gets to the second different tonal difference between the films, which is emotional. It all comes back to the characters. They don’t quite become real people here, but they get close enough to get under your skin. Admittedly, the opening part of “Vol. 2” tests the viewer’s patience a bit, there’s some long bits that show the director hasn’t really mastered self-discipline, like with Thurman’s graveyard struggle, but the meandering usually has a purpose. Tarantino is building toward something here that has its payoff when Thurman’s character finally has her face-to-face showdown with Carradine’s Bill.
From that moment forward to the end, this is the best Tarantino has ever been.
Carradine and Thurman dominate the proceedings with two of the finest performances I’ve seen, certainly the best Tarantino has directed, playing off the mythology we’ve been taught in “Vol. 1” and developing resonances with the viewer both together and apart which will surprise those expecting a casual butt-kicking affair. We finally find out what Carradine means in the first line of “Vol. 1” where he tells a whimpering victim he is being masochistic, not sadistic, and its a powerful revelation, that this sinister baddie may have a heart buried under that cold exterior. Carradine is perfect in his phrasing, his pauses, the tired glint in his eye, or the way he says “Kiddo.” You can’t ask for a better veteran performance. For her part, Thurman presents a brilliantly conflicted character who can not stop either hating or loving Bill, and brings us not into a world of cartoon anguish, but real human pain.
“Kill Bill Vol. 2” is slow-moving, and needs “Vol. 1” in a way few sequels do, since it assumes you know nearly all the characters coming in. That’s a weakness. So are some undeniably pointless bits, including the entire sequence with Bill’s father figure, Esteban Vihaio, and some business at a bar involving Michael Madsen, who plays a former assassin now gone to seed.
Madsen’s good, though, and so’s Daryl Hannah as another rather mouthy assassin, Gordon Liu as Pei Mei, and especially Perla Haney-Jardine as a girl named B.B. The nice thing with Tarantino is for every scene that strikes a bum note, there’s four or five that hit the right mark, and some manage to do much more. My favorite scene involves a Mexican standoff in an L.A. hotel room between Thurman’s character and an anonymous hitwoman, at once grippingly suspenseful, hilarious, and life-affirming. Still, it’s the final moments of this film that will stay with you, as Bill and his former pupil work out their “unfinished business” and we are left to ponder the results of their decisions and actions.
“Kill Bill Vol. 2” may not reach the heights of cinema to which it aspires, the level of “The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly” quoted in its score, but it’s a fine film that will make most viewers glad they stuck around for the second installment. I am.
The most boring movie of the last 2 (or more) years
I’m a huge movie fan and see about 5 to 10 movies a week of which 1 or 2 in the movie theatre.
Part 1 of this movie was entertaining at the most. The dialogues were nice and at same occasions excellent and the action was good, but not worth the good critics the movie has got.
Now with part 2 I was even more disappointed than part 1. Once again this part was talked about of being the best movie ever made, but it was so boring that I almost fell asleep in the theatre (and that is only the first time that happened). Tarantino tries to make more of a story, but it is like 13 in a dozen. Take 10 movies at random from the videostore and changes are that 5 of them will have a similar story. The dialogues were interesting at their best. One nice thing was the music. That is one of Tarantino’s strong points to select excellent music with the scenes in his movies.
This was definitely the most boring movie I saw in the cinema the last 2 years.
