Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) pays homage to the great Hong Kong martial arts films of the past. The Bride (Uma Thurman) awakens from a long coma to learn that her fiancé, friends and unborn child have been murdered. The culprits are her former lover, Bill, and the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, of which she used to be a member. As she recovers her strength, she enlists the aid of Hattori Hanzo(Sonny Chiba), a legendary Okinawan sword-maker who has vowed to never again create instruments of death. The Bride convinces him otherwise, as the villainous Bill was his former pupil. He creates his final and most perfect blade for The Bride to wield as she exacts her revenge. She then travels the globe in search of her former colleagues, leaving a gruesome blood-bath in her wake. In Volume I The Bride encounters O’Ren-Ishii (Lucy Lui), now the leader of the illegal Tokyo underworld and Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox), who has rejected a life of killing to become a suburban housewife and mother.
