Kill Bill 2 Special Edition
The Bride (Thurman) has killed two of the five people that tried to kill her at her wedding which leaves Elle Driver, Bud and of course Bill himself. What she doesn’t know however, is that the daughter she was pregnant from at her wedding is still alive and under Bill’s custody…
Sound and Vision:
RCV has done a great job with this transfer. The colors that are highly manipulated by Tarantino are bright and shiny and also the black&white recordings look terrific. Sometimes a little moiré and some grain is present but not disturbing at all. Also the contrast is well-done and the same goes for the level of black and the amount of detail.
The DTS track is very vibrant and dynamic with lots of bass and a very good dose of surround effects while the dialogues remain nicely positioned at the center speaker all the time. There’s absolutely nothing to complain about from this transfer.

While Kill Bill had some major swordfights, Kill Bill 2 seems a bit softer than the first one. There’s still plenty of action and even some scenes that can be seen as “gross” but in the end it seems Tarantino might better have made a 3-hour movie of Kill Bill. I tend to like the dialogues Tarantino has put in his previous movies but in Kill Bill 2 they seem to hold up the pace and make the movie longer than it should have been. Technically, RCV has done a great job with the transfer and also the extras are certainly worth checking out.
