Did You Know?


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 »

User Reviews

a great follow up to the first 'outrage'
19 August 2013 | by frleciaSee all my reviews

i'll try to be as short as possible. essentially, this is a good yakuza film, that picks up different angles from where the prequel left off. eg., in the first 'outrage', the focus is on the yakuza discipline, or a romanticized yakuza clan struggling with modern times. on this film though, the focus is on the "macro-level", the interactions with police, politics, other clans and business.

unfortunately, although this seems very promising, it's not as brainy as other flicks, like 'the godfather' perhaps, and doesn't have the psychological depth or intricate plot of, say, the 1st 'infernal affairs'; it's a rather superficial action/yakuza film, but a very enjoyable one.

if you're a kitano fan: it's not avant-garde like 'sonatine', or kind of experimental like 'hanabi' or 'violent cop', or even a different take on the hollywoodian style like 'brother' - it's more a regular kind of movie. but if you liked the 1st 'outrage', like i did, you'll definitely like this one.
