Movie Info

With BEYOND OUTRAGE, action cinema master Takeshi Kitano returns to the hard boiled characters, black comedy and unflinching violence of his crime masterpiece OUTRAGE. This time, a manipulative police crackdown on organized crime has ignited a tricky power struggle in the yakuza underworld. The Sanno crime family has grown into a massive organization dominated by young executives whose new approach to running the family is causing frustration and pent-up resentment with the old-guard members. This vulnerability in the Sanno hierarchy is exactly what anti-gang detective Kataoka has been looking for, as the police force prepares a full-scale crackdown. Kataoka wants start a war between Sanno and the neighboring Hanabishi crime family in the hopes that they destroy each other. His trump card is Otomo (Kitano) - the rumored-dead boss of a defunct family that was destroyed by the Sanno, who has just been released from prison. Otomo wants to retire from a life of crime, but finds himself drawn back in through Kataoka's manipulations as the Sanno and Hanabishi clans teeter on the brink of an all-out war. (c) Magnetmore

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

This is a story largely made up of scenes of men talking in offices, but without the delicious and satirical sense of a whole-cloth gangster world set apart by its own rhythms and internalized rituals of violence ...

Kitano's considerable gifts as a screenwriter and stylist-namely, his talent for staging violent outbursts and conveying narrative through elliptical cuts-are enough to sustain the film as a twisty, cynical underworld yarn.

"Beyond Outrage" fails to live up to its title as Japanese superstar Takeshi Kitano can't find much in the way of fresh ideas for the genre.

The strategy and strategizing of "Beyond Outrage" ... feel like overkill (if you'll pardon the expression).

The narrative haze clears eventually, and the action-dialogue ratio balances out with a succession of swift, punchy setpieces.
