Kill Bill - Vol. 2
Source: Catholic News Service
Violent and vapid continuation of director Quentin Tarantino's sanguinary saga about a former female assassin (Uma Thurman) gunned down at her wedding rehearsal and left for dead by the assassin circle she had once been a member of, led by her former boss-lover, Bill (David Carradine). Having already dispatched of two of her former hit squad associates in the first film, the second installment follows her on her roaring rampage of revenge as she slices and dices her way through her two remaining would-be killers, working her way up the chain of command in order to -- what else? -- kill Bill. While the more dialogue-driven "Vol. 2" is not as bloody as its much gorier predecessor, the superficiality of its hip, highly stylized savagery promotes a video-game attitude toward violence which seems to say killing is cool and, despite its pulp cinema references and flashes of visual brilliance, is fueled by a revenge-driven theme incompatible with the Christian understanding of forgiveness. Recurring gratuitous scenes of violence, much rough and crude language and drug content. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
