News & Interviews for Beyond Outrage
Critic Reviews for Beyond Outrage
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.
Audience Reviews for Beyond Outrage
I thought it was a great movie. Takeshi screen presence is larger than life. This is a sequel that will not disappoint you.
Sequel to Outrage that is sort of all over the place. There are so many names in these 2 films that it distracts from the story and you're left trying to remember who's who. Beat Takeshi is a great filmmaker/actor who really has his own style, albeit sometimes very confusing.
Rumor is he betrayed his own family.
Otomo has just gotten out of jail and his brother is rising up the Yakuza ranks and wishes to help restore Otomo's name and power within the Yakuza, especially if it helps his rise to power. However, the two most powerful families, one from the East and one from the West, are about to start a war the brothers can't keep clear of. Meanwhile, a secret police task force has been charged with reducing yakuza violence; with Otomo out of jail, that may be impossible.
"Yakuza are the worst type of trash."
"Cops are no different."
Takeshi Kitano, director of The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi, Dolls, Brothers, Outrage, Fireworks, Violent Cop, Boiling Point, and Sonatine, delivers Beyond Outrage. The storyline for this picture isn't as compelling as the first film but just as violent. The character interactions are well done and the ultimate direction is better than average. The acting is also on par with the original.
"I haven't fallen low enough to need your protection."
I enjoyed the first film and was excited this sequel was added to Netflix as well. This was okay and worth a viewing, but far from a masterpiece. I enjoyed the action scenes and shootouts, and the evolution of the film was solid. I do recommend seeing this if you're a fan of these yakuza gangster flicks.
"You hit her in the head after she got drunk."
