Movie Detail Monday: The Four Minute Fifty-Nine Second Sword Fight in 'Kill Bill: Vol. 1'

Movie Detail Monday: The Four Minute Fifty-Nine Second Sword Fight in 'Kill Bill: Vol. 1'

Quentin Tarantino packs all his movies with visual references, Easter eggs, and little bits of film trivia.

‘Kill Bill: Vol. 1’ is no exception, from the Bride's yellow outfit, which was inspired by the one worn by Bruce Lee in his final film, 1978’s ‘Game of Death,’ to the pistol that Vernita Green fires at The Bride, hidden in a box of "KaBoom" cereal.

But one of our favorite bits of trivia from the movie occurs during the fight scene between O-Ren and The Bride.

O-Ren Ishii: “You May Not Last Five Minutes”

O-Ren Ishii: “You May Not Last Five Minutes”

O-Ren says in Japanese "I hope you saved your energy. If you haven't, you may not last five minutes." It is exactly four minutes and fifty-nine seconds from the time she steps forward and the music cues, until the fatal blow of the duel.

Check out the full fight scene below (and lordy do we love the music selection … it sends chills down our spine every time).
