Kill Bill musings

Saw Kill Bill Vol. 2 last night, and I’ve got some questions.

Actually, it’s really only one question.

Why did The Bride actually kill Bill?

I mean, besides the fact that all the promo for the film told us she would (“In 2003 Uma Thurman will KILL BILL”).

I guess the way I read her character is one out to avenge her daughter’s murder, not the attempt on her own life. I think that if Beatrix had known B.B. was still alive, she certainly wouldn’t have been as bloodthirsty going after the other DiVAS.

So once she knows B.B. is still alive, why kill Bill? Why put herself into a position in which she (the mother again) can be harmed? Why allow the potential to be separated again?

I’m curious to what the rest of you think.

  1. Well try to think about it from a feminine point of view. Her child may have lived, but he still RUINED HER WEDDING!!!

  3. I thought the same thing….

    I mean, her daughter lived so why would she have to kill everyone? And he didn’t really ruin her life since she ended up pretty happy in the long term. And look at all the things he did for her. He made her who she was.

    My question … what the hell happened to Sophie from Volume 1? We never even found out what Beatrix did to her. I thought she might play a part in Volume 2.
