Customer Review

on March 19, 2014
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.
