This outstanding (much awaited) sequel to 'Outrage' was fantastic. The movie picks up about 5 yrs later and the action and intrigue is non stop. Kitano has "Otomo, come out to 'play' with Kato, Ishihara, Funaki, Kimura etc... as only he can.
The expression "Let's play baseball" now has a whole new meaning to me.
All in all a 5 star rating! Kitano doesn't disappoint!

p.s. I did watch 'Outrage' again before viewing this as it had been a couple of yrs and it was helpful to me.

Takeshi Kitano headlines another amazing movie. This sequel does not parallel Outrage, the way most sequels do, it goes further. It will take you to unexpected places and the finish is bittersweet. This movie can stand alone, if you have not seen Outrage and live on a deserted island. The incredible timing of the actors makes this an honor to watch.

If you like Kitano and a dish best served cold. Then this sequel to "Outrage" is right up your alley. Very satisfying conclusion.

I was going through Netflix, looking to get through my Queue. Unless I'm familiar with a film, usually, 90% are junk. I usually have better luck with foreign films, like Starbuck. I gave this a try on Memorial Day weekend. I just couldn't stop watching. I barely remembered the original, which I watched some time ago. Very good storytelling. I'm amazed that Hollywood hasn't tried to remake these films yet. It would need some work, but it's great stuff. I know a lot of people hate subtitles, but they're just missing out on a lot of great movies with that attitude. This is highly recommended. I assume a third one will be made. These films could be something like the Man With No Name Trilogy. Great stuff.

I loved the lighting done on this film. The way the shadows form on the faces of the actors feels very foreboding and dark; Kitano definitely found the right tonality for this sort of genre. Every frame has an aura of angst, wrinkle-faced gangsters, and myriad grey/black pinstriped suits (typical mafia attire). But the script is not on pair with the aesthetics or the look of the film. There are many scenes in which you'll find the characters reiterating plot points and discussing affairs of antagonizing rival factions with other Yakuza clan members, but it never reaches to any dramatic heft or a rewarding interplay of conflict between the crime families. You'll find all the best lines of Beyond Outrage in the trailer. Overall, the cinematography is great, but the screenplay is ho-hum.

This is a great sequel to OUTRAGE, good action and acting, it didn't matter the cost of the movie, it was well worth it.

Filled with all the plotting, politics, and backstabbing twists that you enjoyed in the first Outrage, Outrage beyond continues the twisted tale of Yakuza revenge spun out of control. If you enjoyed Outrage then this is the perfect second helping. I hope they make another.

Another burning Kitano classic. Not since Toshiro Mifune has a Japanese actor been compelling enough to drive a story, with the language irrelevant, except to convey the emotion and tension of the scenes.
A sublime tale in two parts. Beyond Outrage completes the saga that began in the first.
Excellent flick.

Beyond Outrage is that rare creature in the movie world: A sequel as good if not better than the original.

This movie, like the original, Outrage, forces you to look at the utter brutality of the gangster lifestyle. This movie, like the original, is graced with good acting, believable characters, smart script, and spacious, beautiful camera shots. Like its original film, there is a gritty, unvarnished atmosphere to this film which gives its depiction of the Yakuza life-style an air of authenticity.

In the original movie Otomo, the veteran Yakuza, is released from prison. His release, coupled with a police clampdown instigated by the corrupt, but also incredibly crooked, slimy, vile, despicable, disgusting, conniving, cunning, and duplicitous police detective causes chaos in the two Yakuza gangs portrayed in the original Outrage film. What a weasel he was!

Like the original Outrage, a good part of the movie is spent seeing the various gangsters in that chaos, positioning themselves against the others. There are double-crosses and triple-crosses. Again there is little soundtrack. This only amplifies the brutality and violence when it occurs.
This violence is unadorned, and it is done in a matter-of-fact manner. If there is an execution, you will not hear a “Tah-Dah!” or some other musical interlude in the background; the only thing you will hear is a “Bang!” and that’s it. Tony Soprano could learn a thing or two from these fellas.

Both movies are highly recommended!
