Reviews

The king of yakuza epics Takeshi Kitano (Brother, Zatoichi, Hana-Bi, Sonatine) returns with his most violent gangster film yet. 

Mr. Chairman, the head of the ruling Sannokai yakuza clan, suspects that his henchman Ikemoto has struck a forbidden alliance with rival gangster Murase. Ikemoto tries to quell his boss’ distrust by making a move against Murase, marking the start of a ruthless series of conflicts and betrayals.  Before long, several yakuza clans are out for blood in their constant battle for power and money.  The rival bosses fight to rise through the ranks by scheming and making short-lived allegiances.  In this corrupt world where there are no heroes, it’s a bad guy vs. bad guy in a spiralling outrage of gang warfare.

  • Making of documentary, including cast and crew interviews

Format: DVD
Outrage is a hard-hitting Yakuza film from Takeshi kitano. The plot consists of the dealings and double-crossings involving various yakuza families, individuals and authorities. This dialogue-heavy plotting is inter-spersed with a fair dose of brutal action and very little humour. Whilst some reviewers have complained about the plotting I never found the film unengrossing in any way although you do have to concentrate hard on whose plotting what and against whom. The performances are first rate. Kitano himself plays a familiar old school psychotic yakuza similar to his character in Brother. The film is wery nicely photographed and the violence is handled expertly. A read one review where the reviewer criticised the 'pointless violence'. Perhaps this is actually the point. Characters are brutalized and murdered seemingly on a whim within this world. After his creative peak in 2002-2003 with the excellent Dolls and Zatoichi I think this is a fine return to form for the director (one of my favourites). I was bitterly disappointed with Takeshis' which I found self-indulgent and tedious. Outrage is a very good gangster flick and deserves more credit than it seems to have had. It may not have the humour of Sonatine or the heart of Hana-bi but it is very well made and a great addition to the Kitano catalogue. Just don't order the vegetable noodles, there are severed fingers in it!

I went in to this film looking for Yakuza thrills and spills. I got them, and then some.

Some people have said it isn't up to Kitano's usual standard, but to my knowledge it has all the right elements: extreme violence, a reasonably complex story and some genuinely laugh out loud moments. I'll admit there isn't much of a heart to it - it wasn't very emotionally involving like 'Hana-bi' or 'Zatoichi', but that hole is filled with a dangerous mixture of tension and blood. So why expect anything more?

Kitano himself is totally cool, as usual. The rest of the cast also did a brilliant job.

It isn't pretty, and it won't please everyone, but it's worth a look if you like gangster films, or just enjoy Kitano's acting roles.

Takeshi Kitano's straight-faced black comedy Outrage lives up to its title with the odd moment of extreme violence involving chopsticks, tongues and a bit of improvised dentistry that makes Marathon Man look like a walk in the park, but it's very much Kitano playing it safe on familiar turf, as relentlessly ordinary as it is sporadically violent. Worse, it doesn't have the ability to surprise or subvert expectations that made his reputation with gems like Sonatine [DVD]. Instead its stone-faced star, probably the only man to make Buster Keaton look over emotive, goes through the motions of this rise and fall saga that sees his Yakuza lieutenant involved in an escalating series of incidents that turns an attempt by his boss to make a show of contrition by apparently punishing a rival family he's made an unauthorised alliance with turn into a full scale gang war while the city's Yakuza chairman plays everybody off against each other to do a bit of housecleaning of potential rivals.

Kitano doesn't glamorise his Yakuza: they're untrustworthy - no sooner is an alliance made than it's broken - ruthless and engaged in a job without much of a future and only the odd moment of fun (mostly at the expense of an African ambassador they blackmail into turning his embassy into a casino). The trouble is that while it's occasionally outrageous and offers the odd subtle bit of corporate satire, it isn't especially funny for a black comedy while as a crime drama it's all very, very familiar. Some have compared it to his badly received

Takeshi kitano goes it again with a fantastic yakuza crime thriller. The plot centres around two families one of which is happy to continue with their own illegal activities while abiding to a fragile truce. The other, the Sanno family who are he'll bent on crushing the opposition snd expanding their territories. This film is full if lieing, deceits and of course some bloody nasty violence. Takeshi is awesome as always and the supporting cast are brilliant and believable. A must for any gangster/crime thriller fan, violence gore hound and KITANO fans. Like me. Any one who disagrees is lieing and must have at least three tongues. Well go on show me. Put out your tongue.

Format: DVD
This is a Japanese gangsta flick from the directorial hand of Takeshi Kitano. It is a full throttle story of the Yakuza and the various families (or crime syndicates) that control the Kanto region. It is full of intrigue and double plotting but the one thing that runs as a vein throughout this film is violence. Good old fashioned, medieval, nasty violence.

The Uber crime Lord is called Mr Chairman and actually does dress like some despotic ruler of a `democratic republic' like say North Korea. Even his servants wear the same white tracksuits - even when they are serving dinner, I think you will find that Debretts classes that as a massive faux pas, but hey these are Japanese Mafiosi types and so probably aren't well read.

He discovers that two of his under lords have made some sort of pact to be `sworn brothers' whilst both serving time in one of Japans 1 star detention facilities. This he does not like and so demands that a sort of insult be done to prove that not all brothers get along. Well one thing leads to another and as face is lost, and a few other bits - like fingers-, the retaliations ramp up. The land and power grabs all come at a price and the fortunes of each change with the rapidity of a guns magazine being emptied.

This is acted, directed and filmed in a stylish and no holds barred way. It just roars along, and keeps the shocks coming. There are some well inventive ways of dealing with your enemies and some brutal violence that made me squirm. The Japanese codes of honour and rampant disrespect to your underlings are heavily in evidence. This is just naked greed meets unfettered ambition in a tsunami of double crosses and violence and I thought it was excellent.

This is not one for the squeamish but all lovers of extreme Asian cinema will find a place for this in their collections. In Japanese with a smidgin of English, this is not that short a film but just flew by for me - highly recommended.
