Outrage is a disappointing return to the Yakuza genre by Kitano Takeshi. The film offers some truly brutal violence but little else.

The film offers some truly brutal violence but little else. Where has the offbeat charm that defined Takeshi's previous movies gone? The film might well be striving to push the point that violence begets violence and is thus ultimately pointless, but the pointlessness of it all makes this movie pointless. Um... It's solid, I suppose but I was hoping for much more. Expand

I felt like a lot of the movie was forced to try and seem a certain way when it only came of as corny. The acting at times was atrocious, or maybe Chinese/ Japanese people have very dramatic facial expressions? Subtitles always ad somewhat of a strain to movies but I still had real trouble connecting or believing much of what was going on. I then began having trouble recalling which people went with which families and why they began to dislike the other, and how it benefited one side or the other. It had a few interesting gory deaths/ beatings but uit became quite repetitive. Overall I felt it was pretty poor, as a lover of most Yakuza/ Mafia movies and felt I had wasted my time watching.

It's not nearly as engaging as other Yakuza movies I've seen in the last few years. Sure, there's plenty of violence, some comedy, and creative killing. But it's tough to get behind any of the characters.
