        Definitely a solid yakuza movie overall, but one that's just a complete and utter mess structurally. The last 20 minutes, however dark and grim, certainly pick up the slack. I think the problem is that the movie probably tries to be too complex for its own good. I liked seeing the inner workings of this criminal enterprise but do you really need as many subplots and as many characters as this movie had. It made the movie feel about an hour longer than it really was. I liked the idea of these two families sort of duking it out for control but the movie is full of more betrayals than you can shake a stick at. If there had been fewer, it might have made more impact but they still served a purpose in that you can never trust anybody when it comes to being more successful at what they do. The movie is well put together, it has solid performances and plenty of action to negate, somewhat, a lot of these faults. It, however, doesn't help the major one...how its story is structured. I also heard there was going to be a sequel. If you watch the movie, this sounds like an absurd idea considering where MOST of the characters end up at, and it's not that hard to guess considering the 'job' they do. Anyway a solid, if messy, movie.

        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

        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.
