Kill Bill is the ultimate revenge movie by master scribe and

this classic Quentin Tarantino film which pays homage to a variety

contains exceptional video and audio quality. Match that with some
engaging special features that include the Making of Kill Bill, the
Musical Performances by the "5,6,7,8's" and some Tarantino trailers
and this nicely rounds out this almost perfect Blu-Ray.
