    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    There's no denying that when it comes to communicating a certain delirious romanticism of character shaped by thousands of hours spent sitting in the dark, the artist who made this showpiece is a master.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Put the two parts together, and Tarantino has made a masterful saga that celebrates the martial arts genre while kidding it, loving it, and transcending it.

    Here's an entertainment to warm the heart of anyone who grew up (or failed to) on the formative joys of action movies.

    The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt

    Kill Bill-Vol. 2 puts to shame doubts entertained about aesthetic strategies or structural imbalance provoked by "Kill Bill-Vol. 1." Now that the entirety of Quentin Tarantino's epic revenge melodrama is on view, "Kill Bill" emerges as a brilliant, invigorating work, one to muse over for years to come.

    USA Today Mike Clark

    Bout No. 2 is among the best closed-quarters screen fights ever, as good as (and longer than) Frank Sinatra vs. Henry Silva in The Manchurian Candidate. And Hannah does more for an eyepatch than anyone since the late Israeli defense minister Moshe Dayan.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

not for kids

Sequel just as over-the-top explicitly violent.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that they should exercise the strongest possible caution in deciding whether this movie is appropriate for their families, even for those over 17. This movie is an outrageous and over the top story about people who kill other people for money and for pure enjoyment. It is extremely violent with graphic and exceptionally explicit fight scenes. There are many horrifying images including a squashed eyeball, a badly scarred prostitute, and a desiccated corpse. Many characters are killed. Characters use extremely strong language and they drink and smoke.

  • Families can talk about what led Beatrice to become an assassin and what made her decide to quit. What do these characters tell us about their notion of justice? What are we supposed to admire about them?
