Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill is a prime example of several different genres being used in one film. Both the first and second film contain a range of characteristics that make it difficult to place under one genre. Its multiple fight scenes, weapons and amputations makes this film, without doubt an action film. This is probably the most apparent genre in the film. There are also strong elements of the Japanese kung fu genre  The main weapons used in combat are samurai swords and the majority of characters in the film are Japanese. The camera work also reflects techniques used in Kung Fu films such as quick dramatic zooms from one character to another. There is endless combat and conflict between characters, and also plots of murder and revenge. Despite the continuous flow of violence, as the film’s rich story unfolds, even more sub-genres become apparent. Alongside its brutality kill bill, to some extent is a love story. Over the two films we learn of The Brides past with Bill, how they were in love and expecting a child. Although this isn’t the most evident layer to the story, it still adds a sense of romance amongst many other genres and explains the reasons for The Brides revenge. One of kill bill’s most famous scenes is the introduction to Lucy Liu’s character, O-ren Ishii. The film takes an unexpected turn and transforms into an animated style, taking on an entirely new genre of film. This works brilliantly alongside the Japanese theme at hand, creating the perfect atmosphere for the audience instead of using a more “hollywood” approach to introduce the character.
