The rival bosses seek to rise through the ranks by scheming and making allegiances sworn over saké. Long-time yakuza Otomo has seen his kind go from elaborate body tattoos and severed fingertips to becoming important players on the stock market.

Critic Reviews for Outrage
Kitano is clearly enjoying his powers as a master of the form, and the movie invites the viewer to share in his enjoyment.
It's like a version of "Cinema Paradiso" where all the murders were saved up by a censor and strung together for a bloodbath.
Audience Reviews for Outrage
Nobody retires of old age in this profession, the rituals of "brotherhood" are just another form of lying. Kitano visits once more the theme of yakuza as "manchilds", but it feels he's just going trough the motions of the genre. The violence feels dry, and not as effective or meaningful. Kitano's average effort is still better than most gangster flicks out there, but feel no rush to see this one.
although it was decent, still can't quite buy into beat takeshi's films. a bleak worldview is one thing but it's a little too random to string a long a clear point.
Usually I love these type of gangster movies so I expected to like this movie right from the start but Outrage just felt dull & flat.For some reason I couldn't get into the story & everything was confusing.I finally started getting into it maybe about the middle but by then I just felt like I was watching it just to be watching it.This is the 1st Asian gangster flick that I truly did not like
