As rumoured, Tarantino ups his game with the second volume, though one unfortunate consequence of this is to illuminate ever further how the first part lacks depth. Frankly, I suspect you could watch Part 2 without having seen Part 1 without feeling like you were missing much of anything. Some quick, brutal action scenes here, which in some ways would also play better without having seen Part 1, since once you've seen the Bride mow down like 100 guys, seeing her struggle with one at a time is a little strange. Uma Thurman gets more to work with here, and a big reason that this one is better than the earlier movie is the increased role for David Carradine. Theirs is an oddly compelling relationship.
