    Takes the standard gangster movie template and blasts it out of the water.

    Of all the great actor/directors, Kitano has probably come the closest to creating a style that parallels his approach to acting.

    The maverick Japanese writer-director-actor known for his vicious set-pieces and macabre sense of humor eventually delivers some lip-smacking pleasures in the slow-ignition yakuza thriller Outrage Beyond.

    If Takeshi Kitano does go forward with the rumored third volume, hopefully he'll conceive of some fresh angle on this increasingly dry material.

    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 still feel like overkill (if you’ll pardon the expression).

    The film lacks any kind of human interest, relying instead on our inferred love of lengthy strategy sessions and displays of ruffled pride. When it comes to yakuza cinema, you can do better.
