This one of the first movies I've ever seen that i was actually worn out after seeing it. It's more or less just one 2hour long action sequence, and by the end I was just having a sensory overload. But, I will say that it was great. The story is simple. The Bride (Uma Thurman) is double-crossed on her wedding day by the group she works for, the Deadly Viper Assassins. The film opens with her, pregnant and beaten within an inch of her life, begging Bill, the groups leader, not to kill her. She is shot (very graphically) in the head and left for dead. However she survives, and four years later wakes up from a coma with little more on her mind than killing the five people responsible. After that, it's little more than some backstory on the assassins, and extended action sequences as she carries out her goal. For anyone who said this looked a lot like 'Charlie's Angels', this couldn't be further from the truth. THis is easily the goriest movie I've ever seen, surpassing even the gorefest horror movies I like. After a while, the gore becomes almost surreal. Among the things shown in very graphic detail are the aforementioned gunshot to the head, an eye being ripped from its socket, a beheading, a disembowelment, a lower lip being ripped off, and no less than thirty arms and legs being severed from their bodies via samurai sword. Despite all the mayhem, it's not that disturbing because most of it's done in an over the top manner, like the old martial arts movies that this is a tribute to. Still, I have no clue how they got an R rating with all the gore in this. Basically, if you like kung fu movies, you'll like this, if you just like good action movies, you'll like this. I give it four stars.
