Product Description

Filmmaker Takeshi Kitano stars as Otomo, an old-school yakuza tough guy with conflicting allegiances. Ikemoto, an aging boss, forms an alliance with a drug-dealing gangster and earns the disapproval of the highest ranking yakuza, The Chairman. When Otomo is asked to help Ikemoto clear his name he triggers a ruthless series of executions, territorial invasions and score settling. It's Bad Guy vs. Bad Guy in a spiralling outrage of gang warfare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Savage Mayhem...It Is Right There.In Red” May 20 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
“So, why do we have friends,you know, for sharing that secret,that you don’t want others to know about,
or like coming over to have a party and talking about old times,or just helping with something around your house,
but when that secret comes out,you put a mile and a very large distends, away from the person you though were your friend,
but with this movie,we keep him close,that way you see his every move,that’s how you can track him to kill him,you think
it’s extreme, bloody well right, I don’t think I’ve seen a movie with so many inventive ways to kill someone,
like the car scene,I’ll stop there, the best way to get two friends to hate each other is, just tell a little lie,about each other,
it works every time,this movie “Outrage” works on that premise, it’s done so good,but not all things always turn out good
from that perspective,by the perpetrator of the lie,what I love about this, it is so subtle,makes you think nothing going to happen,
Then it hits you right the kisser,This is Not for the Squeamish”it say right on the front cover,and Believe It,
I don’t know where Amazon.ca. get there product description from,but it’s not working,the movie is in 2.35:1 not 1.66:1.
Widescreen 2.35:1
5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
Runtime 109 Minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Rollercoaster of a ride Feb. 10 2012
By Tommy Dooley HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Just a quick point the other review is not about this film, this is not about 'outing' gay politicians but about Japanese Yakuza types.
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 do 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 powere 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Might not be what you expect, but stellar, none the less. April 14 2014
By craigstealsheep - Published on Amazon.com
If go into thinking this is an action movie, you may be disappointed. The cover and title make it seem like it's a crime-action film when really it's more of a violent drama. If you've seen Violent Cop, Sonatine, or Fireworks, then you'll understand the tone of Takeshi Kitano's work. It's a slow burn with intrigue, double crosses, brutal, but quick violence, and an underlying sadness. No one can be trusted. Everyone has something to gain from other's misfortune.

Outrage tells the story of Otomo, a long time enforcer that doesn't get much recognition or respect from those above him. His bosses lie and use him, and in some ways, he even knows this happens. But he's just doing his job. He isn't bothered by getting his hands dirty and he may be the best at it, so what of it? This changes, however, when his boss is asked to break a pact with another family head by the chairman (if you're unfamiliar with Yakuza ranks, think Don). Otomo's boss then has him start a small war that quickly escalates until Otomo can't even trust those he believed were friends. He may not even be able to trust those he respects most.

This is not a film for the faint of heart. It's not a film for those who are looking for big set pieces. It's a slow burn, but the acting, Cinematography and writing are so pitch perfect that it's worth a look. It's violent, understated, and artful like the Godfather. There is so much going on in every scene that with every rewatch you get more out of it. Kitano is at his best when tackling hard subjects like loyalty, self-worth, and honor. It's rare to see someone that can do it all in this age, and I'm glad he keeps putting out fantastic films to this day. Check out the sequel, Beyond Outrage as well. It's definitely worth the price.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN Sept. 30 2012
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
This is your typical organized crime film where competing families play "King of the Hill." You get the feeling of deja vu when you watch it.

It includes, paid off cops, hits, drugs, prostitution, betrayals and an odd scene where they force the ambassador of Ghana to open a casino in his embassy. This film doesn't bring anything new to the table, except the Japanese "honorably" cut off their own finger rather than have someone else do it to them. With the film being run of the mill crime action, the English subtitles was a big negative as it was apparent they were lazy and didn't translate everything.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, token sex and nude scene.
