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.
A sublime tale in two parts. Beyond Outrage completes the saga that began in the first.
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!
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. The characters in this and its companion movie are depicted as a pack of dogs and make their counterparts in Reservoir Dogs look like kindergarten students.
Both movies are highly recommended!
