Did You Know?

Goofs

In the first scene where the car is been lifted out of the water, the engine and gearbox are missing. In the last few seconds when the car is still hanging above the water, you can see the front part of the car. There is no bottom side of the engine. And there is light visible through the left wheel that comes from over the right wheel. That would not be possible if there was an engine inside. See more »

Not as cerebral or gritty as the first, but a good gangster drama
17 December 2013 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Outrage was one of the more conventional Kitano films out there, whereas in previous kitano films the violence was mostly implied, outrage reveled in its graphic tone. However it wasn't all shock value, outrage plot was a political masterpiece, with a yakuza that discarded honor and romantic ideals for cold pragmatism, intelligent, calculating characters looking for their adversaries to take a bait and run with it when up until the end it wasn't clear who was manipulating the events and who would come victorious.

None of the above remains true in the sequel, first of all Beyond Outrage is a tamer film, I'm not sure if it was a stylistic choice, or one that came from budget limitations, but most of the violence is either implied or shown without gore ; that said the film makes up for it with a great use of sound effects, where you will hear and feel every act of violence thanks to it, it is especially true with gun fire which is loud and powerful as it should be.

Now as for the plot, the manipulations and the winner of the struggle are made quite clear from the get-go, this is in part because the script is not as complex as the first one, whereas the original outrage had several layers of deception, here the machinations are simplified and more obvious, characters whose story had run its course in the first one are brought back with a quick dialogue explanation and one relationship in particular is redesigned, but its not very convincing, Even having watched the original, the comeuppance of several characters seems formulaic and not as gratifying as it should have been, lacking the operatic quality previous kitano's entries; the end also comes too soon, leaving the overall endgame hinted at, but not entirely resolved, perhaps in order to make room for a sequel.

So in the end Beyond outrage is a much tamer and straightforward film than its predecessor, it could be viewed as a standalone film since the movie recaps the previous plot in several occasions,the film seems commercially motivated and riding on the success of its predecessor, This now takes the crown as Kitano's most accessible film to date, but that doesn't seem to be an achievement to be proud of.
