Equilibrium

  • Equilibrium

  • The trailer begins with the female protagonist narrating behind several clips of her past, stating that she was hired to be ‘crème de la crème in an exclusive industry’ before her ‘friends’ betrayed her by trying to kill her for leaving the group in order to start a new life.

  • Disequilibrium

  • The equilibrium discontinues as soon as the narrator describes her plot –to kill the people who betrayed her. This is evident as the pace of the music changes from up beat to action packed as she says ‘I choose, KILL!’. There are uses of comedic value throughout the trailer, especially when she is fighting the first antagonist –and her daughter walks in. Secondly when she cuts the Asian man’s sword into pieces.

  • Equilibrium continues

  • The equilibrium continues at the very end of the trailer, when the female protagonist says ‘The hard part’s over’. This shows that she has defeated all of the antagonists in the 1st volume of Kill Bill.

  • Themes:

  • postmodernism (eg breaking the fourth wall)

  • Genre:

  • Comedy

  • Action

  • Crime



Throughout the trailer, we are able to see a list of characters. These include:

Camera shots

  • Camera shots

  • High angles- the antagonists are usually captured in high angle shots. This is important as it makes them look weak.

  • Low angles- shows how powerful the protagonist is, compared to the villains.

  • Mid shots – Breaking the fourth wall when the main character says ‘The hard parts over’.

  • Extreme close up – an extreme close up is used on the protagonist’s eye, in order to show her emotions to the audience, whilst a knife is being thrown at her.

  • Establishing shot- at the end of the trailer. This shows the audience how many men (that are in suits) the protagonist needs to fight.

  • Editing

  • Fast paced – shows how much action will be taking place in the film.

  • Fast zoom – also adds to the pace of the trailer.



Diegetic

  • Diegetic

  • Diegetic noises that are relevant to the theme of the narrative include:

  • The sound of swords and knives – these diegetic sounds are all included into the trailer in order to add to the sense of action.

  • The sound of the school bus honking – this creates a sense of humour/comedy, and it also is relevant due because it can be seen as a motherly instinct to stop fighting when a child is in the room.

  • The sound of a motorcycle – also adds to the action/quick pace of the trailer.

  • Non diegetic

  • The sound of flames and gunshots during the titles – signifies even more action.

  • An array of soundtracks which vary from different ranges of rock music (heavy guitar solos..etc)

  • Dialogue

  • ‘It’s either kill, or be killed. And I choose kill!’ – emphasizes on the plot/narrative of the film.

  • ‘Go home to your mother!’ – another representation of comedy.



In terms of the titles used in Kill Bill Vol. 1, the audience can see that the main colour is yellow –which is a relevant color in this film, as it conveys both betrayal, as well as power. The main character (The Bride) wears a yellow jump suit and drives a yellow car. The black lines are meant to be signified as blood during the trailer, however they made it black in order to show it to a larger audience. The font is sans serif and bold which means it’s both simple and very readable, making it easy to remember for the audience members.
