USED 03/03/2018 The film industry has had a wake-up call this year, with women speaking out against abuse and inequality. In preparation for International Women's Day on Thursday, Sky Action gets a timely makeover as Sky Wonder Women, offering a week-long showcase for all-conquering heroines who are absolutely the equal of their male counterparts. Uma Thurman's gutsy turn in Kill Bill is a highlight. JAMIE HEALY Quentin Tarantino marshals a bewildering number of multi-genre references into a hypnotically entertaining whole in this violent martial arts revenge drama. The former video-shop worker's love of everything from Brian De Palma split screens and Eurotrash horror to Hong Kong exploitation and Ennio Morricone music finds its way into this guilt-by-association cinematic celebration. Giving a searing performance, Uma Thurman plays one of the Deadly Vipers, a crack assassination squad led by the Bill of the title (David Carradine). Left for dead on her wedding day, she falls into a coma, only to awaken four years later swearing revenge on her traitorous co-workers.
deals with two members on her Death List Five: Vernita Green (Vivica A Fox) and O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu). Dripping with bloody ultra-violence and using startling flashbacks, knowingly fake dubbing and a quite brilliant
is both a daring experiment in sampled cinematic language and scrounged style, and a gloriously enchanting work of neo-art in itself.
A female assassin wakes from a four-year coma and promptly sets out on a campaign to wipe out her erstwhile colleagues, who tried to kill her at her own wedding - one of whom is now the kingpin of the Tokyo underworld. The first part of Quentin Tarantino's two-part martial arts thriller, starring Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Vivica A Fox, Daryl Hannah and David Carradine.
