What can I say about Kill Bill Volume 1 which hasn't already been said? I love this film with a passion for all its pulpy ingenuity and staged fight scenes lifted from every bad Kung Fu movie you can think off. I am not going to go into too much detail on the film as the purpose of this review is to compare this sumptuous Limited Edition Japanese Boxset against the R1 edition of the movie we reviewed a few weeks ago.
The boxset is not cheap and will probably only really appeal to those who love the film like me, but the Japanese do it again, producing an item strictly limited and already nearly completely sold out. With talk that Tarantino will re-edit the movies together for later editions, the film is maybe a must have in the form presented here. So what do you get within this package? First off the box is surrounded by a plastic coat which protects it from dust and sticky fingers, open it up and you are presented with a number of goodies including a T-Shirt (Large size), an odd toy in the bikers suit and blood, a booklet in colour and Japanese text, a free ticket to see Volume 2 (in Japan) and a zip up jump suit and mini Samurai sword. Oh and don't forget the film on DVD.
This box set is truly collectable and I only wish that studios over here would catch on with the collector's editions of movies and give us something to compete with this Japanese edition. Recommended for those with deep pockets.
