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

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

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

True Kitano fans will find its title sadly ironic.

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

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.

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...

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.
