Editorial Reviews

In a ruthless battle for power, several yakuza clans vie for the favor of their head family in the Japanese underworld. The rival bosses seek to rise through the ranks by scheming and making allegiances sworn over sake;. Long-time yakuza Otomo has seen his kind go from elaborate body tattoos and severed fingertips to becoming important players on the stock market. Theirs is a never-ending struggle to end up on top, or at least survive, in a corrupt world where there are no heroes, but constant betrayal and vengeance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intermediate level yakuza thriller March 25, 2014
By Kearl
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Warning - This review contains spoilers! I watched this movie for the same reason as most westerners, I wanted to watch Takeshi Kitano's Ôtomo kick some butt. This guy is nearly invincible in many other flicks, but this time around there is no grand finale shootout! Just the mafia head honcho paying off the corrupt chief of police & that is it. Ôtomo dies after getting stabbed a mere 2 times, where in most movies he doesn't die until he's been shot & stabbed at least 20! Also - most Asian Cinema has huge martial arts fighting scenes - where here there isn't any. You'd think that Yakusa would at least have a yellow belt - they just wrestle each other down and slap! Otherwise it's a solid mafia turf war flick, with lots of extortion, drugs, prostitution and so on with Japanese men dressed in western suits & driving European cars. Also there are too many parlor scenes with the old man/head honcho deciding the fate of his minions. Asian directors need to realize that Takeshi Kitano is a Japanese Charles Bronson & needs to be cast accordingly. Entertaining, but not the best.

Format:DVD
This is a Japanese gangsta flick from the directorial hand of Takeshi Kitano. It is a full throttle story of the Yakuza and the various families (or crime syndicates) that control the Kanto region. It is full of intrigue and double plotting but the one thing that runs as a vein throughout this film is violence. Good old fashioned, medieval, nasty violence.

The Uber crime Lord is called Mr Chairman and actually does dress like some despotic ruler of a `democratic republic' like say North Korea. Even his servants wear the same white tracksuits - even when they are serving dinner, I think you will find that Debretts classes that as a massive faux pas, but hey these are Japanese Mafiosi types and so probably aren't well read.

He discovers that two of his under lords have made some sort of pact to be `sworn brothers' whilst both serving time in one of Japans 1 star detention facilities. This he does not like and so demands that a sort of insult be done to prove that not all brothers do get along. Well one thing leads to another and as face is lost, and a few other bits - like fingers-, the retaliations ramp up. The land and powere grabs all come at a price and the fortunes of each change with the rapidity of a guns magazine being emptied.

This is acted, directed and filmed in a stylish and no holds barred way. It just roars along, and keeps the shocks coming. There are some well inventive ways of dealing with your enemies and some brutal violence that made me squirm. The Japanese codes of honour and rampant disrespect to your underlings are heavily in evidence. This is just naked greed meets unfettered ambition in a tsunami of double crosses and violence and I thought it was excellent.

This is not one for the squeamish but all lovers of extreme Asian cinema will find a place for this in their collections. In Japanese with a smidgin of English, this is not that short a film but just flew by for me - highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Action Movie April 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Lot's of wild beliveable action and automatic gunfire at times going overboard with it, very thin plot and hard to undestand the story so at the end I was still not sure what it was all about.
If you like lots of auto gun fire and wild action this would be a movie you would like, I would not waste time watching it again though.

If go into thinking this is an action movie, you may be disappointed. The cover and title make it seem like it's a crime-action film when really it's more of a violent drama. If you've seen Violent Cop, Sonatine, or Fireworks, then you'll understand the tone of Takeshi Kitano's work. It's a slow burn with intrigue, double crosses, brutal, but quick violence, and an underlying sadness. No one can be trusted. Everyone has something to gain from other's misfortune.

Outrage tells the story of Otomo, a long time enforcer that doesn't get much recognition or respect from those above him. His bosses lie and use him, and in some ways, he even knows this happens. But he's just doing his job. He isn't bothered by getting his hands dirty and he may be the best at it, so what of it? This changes, however, when his boss is asked to break a pact with another family head by the chairman (if you're unfamiliar with Yakuza ranks, think Don). Otomo's boss then has him start a small war that quickly escalates until Otomo can't even trust those he believed were friends. He may not even be able to trust those he respects most.

This is not a film for the faint of heart. It's not a film for those who are looking for big set pieces. It's a slow burn, but the acting, Cinematography and writing are so pitch perfect that it's worth a look. It's violent, understated, and artful like the Godfather. There is so much going on in every scene that with every rewatch you get more out of it. Kitano is at his best when tackling hard subjects like loyalty, self-worth, and honor. It's rare to see someone that can do it all in this age, and I'm glad he keeps putting out fantastic films to this day. Check out the sequel, Beyond Outrage as well. It's definitely worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining movie
Very entertaining but the ending seemed a bit arbitrary. The action was top notch, as was the acting. Well worth the cost of viewing (which is $0 with Prime)

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like Sam Peckinpah
Over-the-top violent and complicated.Not a modern samurai movie and not Good Fellas. Seems a little low-budget but I liked it.

In sight ful look into Yakuza culture. Only problem is keeping the characters strait along with subtitle use. Good film.
