Lawrence Bender has produced many movies in his career but the Kill Bill series is definitely his most famous. The movie swept box offices with amazing profits, pleasing both audiences and investors.
Kill Bill Vol. 1 had a level of violence never before seen on the big screen. It mimics the ultra-violence found in some Japanese action films and it has a sense of exaggeration instead of realism. The movie contains a lot of familiar and new faces that create the perfect cast for the movie.
Uma Thurman plays her role as “The Bride” very well. Her wedding was interrupted by bloodshed and put her into a coma. As she awoke, she came back with vengeance to hunt down those responsible for the wedding massacre. She ends up all the way in Japan in an epic battle with the Yakuza, which is the most famous highlight of this classic film.
