Who vs. Who: The Bride (Uma Thurman) vs. The Crazy 88
Most Hollywood fight scenes ignore the fact that blood does actually land on clothing when folks use weapons. Leave it to exploitation fiend Quentin Tarantino to acknowledge the gore, smothering the black suits worn by the Crazy's 88s with crimson splotches and other human innards. Yet, this here are this splatter-filled showstopper somehow maintains a certain kung fu chic.
