About the Movie

In a ruthless battle for power, several yakuza clans vie for the favor of their head family in the Japanese underworld. The rival bosses seek to rise through the ranks by scheming and making allegiances sworn over saké. Long-time yakuza Otomo has seen his kind go from elaborate body tattoos and severed fingertips to becoming important players on the stock market. Theirs is a never-ending struggle to end up on top, or at least survive, in a corrupt world where there are no heroes, but constant betrayal and vengeance.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Kitano's immaculate compositions and eccentric flourishes are part of the film's sustained, muted pleasures and are often in service to some underlying meaning. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Dec 1, 2011

Fresh: So low-key and offhanded in its mastery that it becomes something like a pulp sleight-of-hand trick. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Dec 1, 2011

Fresh: Like one of its yakuza bigs, Outrage commands respect but no affection. – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, Nov 29, 2011

Rotten: 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. – Scott Tobias, NPR, Dec 2, 2011

iTunes bungles the plot summary yet again . . .

It's a good film, but the iTunes summary is annoyingly deceptive. Ignore the iTunes plot summary and you may enjoy the movie more.

A Little Disappointed

I'm a Beat Takeshi/Yakuza genre fan, but this wasn't my favorite. The plot meandered through a string of betrayals and excecutions that didn't make a lot of sense due to an underdevlopped storyline. The actors were great with what they had to work with and the movie looked good, but there wasn't enough meat to recommend it.

"Spoiler alert"

"ok, who wants to be the head of the yakuza?"
..."oh, me, me , me" pew pew ... Everybody die.

The end.

Waste of good money. Not gonna count on tomatoes (100% huh?!)
