Long-winded, overly self-indulgent and talky, director Quentin Tarantino's bloated wrap-up of his bloody revenge saga is something of an anticlimax. Detailing how the Bride (Uma Thurman) tracks down Deadly Viper assassins Budd (Michael Madsen) and Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah), before facing Bill (David Carradine) and an unexpected "adversary", it's the same mix as before except less visually dynamic and with a lot more unnecessary exposition. Yet the borrowed style (chiefly from Sergio Leone), music (from Ennio Morricone's spaghetti westerns), characters (kung fu master Pai Mei from the Shaw Brothers' movies), props (Carradine dusts off the instrument he played in
The Silent Flute
), and all the usual obscure genre references still make this compressed exploitation-cinema history lesson into a buff treat. The martial arts action may pack a less gory punch than
, but there's still plenty here to shock. One single condensed movie would doubtless have sufficed, but then we wouldn't have had the earlier gem to this minor companion piece.
Hitwoman the Bride continues her relentless quest to exact revenge on the group responsible for trying to kill her. Two more of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad stand in her way before she can face-off against her mysterious mentor Bill. However, she has yet to realise that he has one last surprise waiting for her. Thriller sequel, starring Uma Thurman, David Carradine, Daryl Hannah and Michael Madsen.
