** Overall, it is also this to Tarantino's catalogue of movies in general. It is one of the few that has extended choreographed scenes of action, while most Tarantino movies tend to just involve quick bursts of violence. ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' is the other other Tarantino movie that really comes close, and Kill Bill still is more action packed by far.

* ActionPrologue: A downplayed example. The movie opens with the Bride being executed by Bill, and we get a credits sequence of her comatose in the hospital. But then it immediately cuts to her walking up to Vernita Green's house and attempting to kill her, leading to a drawn out fight sequence with little context. After Vernita's daughter comes home, they do stop the fight and we get a bit of context, but not much before Green tries to shoot the Bride and gets killed for it. ''THEN'' we get to see what happened right after the Bride got shot in the head.



** To be fair, Budd is the only one to [[spoiler: be GenreSavvy enough to understand that the Bride is coming after them, and plan an appropriate response. If not for the Magic One-Inch Punch Technique, Budd would have successfully killed her, coming much closer than any of the other [=DiVAs=].]]

->''"[[LeftForDead Looked dead, didn't I]]? But I wasn't. And it wasn't for lack of trying, I can tell you that. Actually, Bill's last bullet [[ConvenientComa put me in a coma]]. A coma I was to lie in [[ExactlyExtyYearsAgo for four years]]. When I woke up, I went on what the movie advertisements referred to as a RoaringRampageOfRevenge. [[NameThatUnfoldsLikeLotusBlossom I roared. I rampaged.]] And [[IRegretNothing I got bloody satisfaction]]. I've [[KillEmAll killed a hell of a lot of people]] to get to this point, but I have only one more. [[FinalBoss The last one]]. The one I'm driving to right now. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment The only one left]]. And when I arrive at my destination... I am gonna [[TitleDrop KILL BILL]]."''

* CelebCrush: Bill's father figure Esteban Vihaio, a Mexican pimp, tells a story about how he once took Bill to the movies when he was a little boy. He could tell that Bill was drawn to blondes when he noted that the boy had a PrecociousCrush for 1940s-1950s movie star Lana Turner.

* ActionizedSequel: Even though its two parts of a single story, inverted. Part 1 has a lot more action than part 2, with the final third or more of the movie being an extended action sequence where the Bride single handedly cuts her way through O-Ren's yakuza army before facing the woman herself. Part 2 spends a lot more time on the narrative and fleshing out the Bride's character and only has 2 real fights, one which is relatively short and brutal as opposed to the stylized action of the first part, and the second fight, the one where [[spoiler:she kills Bill]], lasts about 10 seconds.
