Kill Bill, Vol. 2

4 out of 5 snowstones
Volume 2 of Tarantino's revenge flick is mostly set in the US, and therefore returns to more American characters and plot developments. That said, it also includes a hilarious flashback of The Bride's martial arts training in China, including Bruce Lee-style rapid zoom shots. As in the previous movie, The Bride kills her way through various former killer-colleagues before confronting Bill, her former lover and current nemesis.
Combined with Vol. 1, 'Kill Bill' is a different, but not really worse, brand of Tarantino movie. It's more directed (no pun intended) toward the Far East, but also offers classic Tarantino suspense.
