Not particularly impassioned, but I suspect my indifferent, numbed reaction is rather sort of the point.

It's like a version of "Cinema Paradiso" where all the murders were saved up by a censor and strung together for a bloodbath.

How can anyone can get excited over something so grim and redundant?

Unfortunately the film itself feels a little punch drunk, particularly as the feuds escalate. Who's trying to knock off whom? It's hard to keep track...

Kitano leaves it up to us to connect the dots. Unfortunately, he seems to get bored before he's done, and so do we.

True Kitano fans will find its title sadly ironic.

Compared to the dramatic riches Kitano used to find amid the bloodletting, Outrage's feels pretty paltry.

The movie too often resembles a repetitive cycle of tough guys shouting, shooting and shuffling off this mortal coil.

The longer Outrage goes on, the more distance it gets from its core themes about the moral chaos of gangsterism. It becomes a film about cool killings, which may satisfy the bloodlust of some Kitano fans but hardly amounts to a return to form.

A swift kick in the soft parts sure to release some holiday tension.

Kitano is clearly enjoying his powers as a master of the form, and the movie invites the viewer to share in his enjoyment.

Kitano's pristine direction and smooth camera movement always juxtapose the unsettling action with a beautifully crisp formalism that makes the film increasingly disturbing.

To me there's no better praise you can give to a crime film -- when a hood gets his comeuppance you don't feel thrilled but bummed out.

[Takeshi's] sense of style is very much in evidence here, and so is his sense of humor.

It's retaliation without foundation, all fun and games until everyone gets hurt.

Outrage is as good as the many copies that were inspired by his early films but shouldn't the maestro's return offer something so much more?

Functions more as a reminder of past glories than as a harbinger of new concepts.

Outrage is equal measures gangland power struggle and broad comedic farce, all shook up with a fizzy hit of ultraviolent set pieces.

It is almost as though Kitano is saying that nothing can stop him from defeating the rivals, successors and pretenders who, in his absence, have tried to move in on his (generic) turf

Slow and sizzling with occasional stabs of blood red violence, Outrage is a solid entertainment.
