Well, this is the second installment of Kill Bill on Blu-ray, and it will be nice to know there is consistency to be found. In fact, when I watched both films back to back, I didn't notice any major color shifts or variations. This is so important when watching a sequel movie or in this case, a movie which was filmed consecutively, and can often reduce the overall performance alone by directorial changes. But again, no major problems to be found. In KB2 we are treated to the same wonderful transfer which was in the first installment. One of the reasons for the consistency is the filming which took place sequentially, however, I've often viewed films which were also made with a sequel which trailed closely behind, only to to observe the artistic conveyance of the first film to disappear with the second. Kill Bill is one of those rare epic films to stay on track.

Kill Bill Volume 2 Blu-ray Screencaps

In Kill Bill Volume 2 we can observe some rather excellent skin tones and detail. Possibly more than the first installment, but I'll let you decide. Below are screencaps which convey some of the great skin tones I observed.

Even in low lighting we see little grain, which is very beneficial in scenes like this.

Tarantino purposely injects a Groovy 70's feel to the Cruel Tutelage Of Pai Mei chapter. We see a little more grain here, but it's not too intrusive. In fact, if these scenes were as clear as others, the whole interactions between Pai Mei (Gordon Liu) and The Bride wouldn't be as humorous and historically significant.

In addition to the Pai Mei chapter, we also have some grain present of indoor shots of the wedding chapel. Now, this type of grain is NOT troublesome, and is highly fine in texture, and Tarantino does a great job at using just the right amount for ambiance.

In the outdoors we have a much different picture — clean and sharp as can be.

You know, I'd almost wish there was a version of Kill Bill entirely in Black & White. High-Def resolution can really bring out contrast. But in any case, I didn't notice any flaws in this second installment at all. This is one of those movies to have in your reference collection.
