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.

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.

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.

Format: Blu-ray
This is your typical organized crime film where competing families play "King of the Hill." You get the feeling of deja vu when you watch it.

It includes, paid off cops, hits, drugs, prostitution, betrayals and an odd scene where they force the ambassador of Ghana to open a casino in his embassy. This film doesn't bring anything new to the table, except the Japanese "honorably" cut off their own finger rather than have someone else do it to them. With the film being run of the mill crime action, the English subtitles was a big negative as it was apparent they were lazy and didn't translate everything.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, token sex and nude scene.

For most of the film, the main character is being used like a dog by his superiors. It's not until more than half-way through the film when he actually gets betrayed by the head boss. Up until this moment, I'm thinking, "Am I watching the right movie?" Otherwise, it's definitely a good old-school gangster flick. Lots of backstabbing and in-gang politics which I love. The film could have been ALOT better though, that's for sure.

"Beat" Takeshi Kitano's latest, "Outrage Beyond", a sequel to 2010's Yakuza thriller "Outrage" delivers the goods better than any Kitano film since "Zatoichi." I won't get into the plot or the characters too much, you really need to see these two films in order with as little knowledge as possible to enhance your enjoyment to the maximum.

If you are addicted to the American-style of vapid, meaningless shoot-em-up gangster films, then this film isn't for you.

But if you are a connoisseur of the perfect meshing of art and entertainment and violence (with a not-so-subtle message about declining tradition and the changes in (gangster) society that this results in), and if you are a Kitano fan, get ready for a thrill ride that you'll hope won't end.

A thumbnail of the features that make this film an undeniable Kitano classic follows below. (Like the finest chocolate cake, this film is meant to be SAVORED, minute-by-minute, rather than devoured like, oh, say, Tarantino's over-the-top cartoon-like-violence flicks).

1. The characters - they are absolutely dead-on, the acting is excellent and there are a number of supporting characters not central to the action (two mob underbosses) who are so enjoyable to watch that they practically steal every scene they are in. This is character acting at it absolute finest. Like all of Kitano's serious films, (and Japanese films in general from my experience), there is a rich STORY here and myriad plots and sub-plots that have to be carefully followed to fully understand what is happening. A movie that engages your mind - what a concept!
