"Guaranteed to blow you away."

— Stella Papamichael,

"Delivered with such high panache and brio, it's mesmerizing."

— Stephen Hunter, Washington Post

"Has matched, if not eclipsed, the power and scope of 1994's Pulp Fiction."

— Desson Thomson, Washington Post

"Kill Bill confirms [Quentin Tarantino] as a filmmaker of astonishing invention and aplomb."

— Geoffrey O'Brien, Film Comment Magazine

"Kill Bill not only lives up to the hype, it exceeds it, with some of the most amazing fight sequences ever filmed."

— Bill Muller, Arizona Republic

"There's nothing like a good 'ole revenge heist (complete with a hit list) to make this film one of Tarantino's best."

— Candice Frederick, Reel Talk Online

"Kill Bill: Volume 1 shows Quentin Tarantino so effortlessly and brilliantly in command of his technique that he reminds me of a virtuoso violinist racing through Flight of the Bumble Bee ..."

— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"There is no ironic overlay in Tarantino's movies, no 'commenting' on the pop schlock he's replicating. He simply wants to remake in his own way the kinds of movies he's always loved, and he's about as uncynical as a movie geek can be."

— Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
