Quick Review

I remember seeing this at the local theater and being absolutely blown away until the final seconds, where it was revealed that the daughter is still alive. I felt it betrayed the entire movie I had just seen and never understood the point, except to make some kind of Hollywood cliffhanger. I thought they completely ruined the revelation in part 2 in this way and it diminished the impact severely. That aside, this one and part two are absolutely brilliant and probably my favorite Tarantino movies. However, they should never have been split up.
