The film: Kill Bill (Vols 1 and 2) 2003/2004
The death: Okay, so technically, Uma Thurman’s Bride doesn’t actually die. But at the start of the first film, she’s left pretty much for dead by her former co-assassins, who she had the nerve to quit working with.
And in Part II, she’s literally buried alive by Budd (Michael Madsen). So we’re counting it as beyond the grave…
The payback: Ah, so many ways. In part 1, she awakens from her near-death coma and manages to get her body working again just as a fiendish coma-rapist arrives in her ward.
Then in the second part, she uses her training to carefully break out of her coffin and painfully claw her way back to the land of the living.
Best revenge moment: When the Bride (real name Beatrix Kiddo) stages an assault on the House Of Blue Leaves, a favourite hangout of kung-fu megavixen O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu).
After carving her way through O-Ren’s henchmen, the Crazy 88s, she finishes off Ms Ishii herself by slicing off her scalp. Decisive.
