Will The Bride succeed and get her vengeance and will she kill Bill?
This movie is not nearly as violent as the last one. In fact I liked that they explored the relationship between Bill and The Bride deeper. This is very much a story-driven movie. This movie only has two fight scenes. One being bloodless and no one is killed. And only one death is shown on-screen throughout this entire movie with very mild blood shown, so, this is a Quentin Tarantino movie that is an easy watch, surprisingly. This is a really great revenge story.
I don’t really have any major issues with the movie that I can think of. I think I liked this one slightly more than the first one, but, I’m giving them both 8/10*!
