Tarantino: Kill Bill Isn't Matrix Reloaded

Subscribe to Quentin Tarantino alerts

Maverick director Quentin Tarantino has defended his new movie Kill Bill from accusations the finale is similar to that in The Matrix Reloaded.

The outspoken film-maker insists the thought didn't occur to him until Matrix star Keanu Reeves showed up to a sneak preview.

Quentin says, "The similarities between the fight sequences never even occurred to me until I had a director's screening of Kill Bill and Luc Besson turned up with KEANU REEVES as his guest.

"I watched Keanu watching and suddenly I felt it."

But the Reservoir Dogs director is quick to point out that, unlike The Matrix sequel, he didn't use computers to enhance the action.

He adds, "You know, my guys are real. There's no computer f***ing around. I'm sick to death of all that s***. This is old school, with f***ing cameras.

"If I'd wanted all that computer game bulls***, I'd have gone home and stuck my d*** in my NINTENDO.

"This computer graphics bull*** is the death knell at the cinema. Movies are far too f***ing expensive at the moment, and it's killing the f***ing art form.

"The way it's going, in ten years' time it will officially be killed."
