  1. Roy Markowitz's rating of the film Outrage

    Hilariously funny (unintentional) this over-heated tale of Yakuza treachery, so brutal and frequent, that it seems more like "What's Up Tiger Lilly?" than a serious look at mobsville Japan. Betrayal- very scary!!

  2. Nicholas Kohut's rating of the film Outrage

    Definitely one of Kitano's many masterworks. His demonstration of savage and brutal Yakuza competition is terrifying. The discipline of his shot language is arresting, time feels irrelevant and the terrible implications of crime syndicate management are magnified with potent sound design and musical structure. Outrage is somewhat of a dance through the illusions of respect and loyalty in Japan's criminal underworld.

  4. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Outrage

    Wonderful! The delusional plans of power-hungry phalluses get twisted into a comically absurd, semi-slapsticky series of backstabs—until the story becomes so brutal that laughter is no longer an option. Act now, and we'll throw in an ominous, minimal synth score that John Carpenter would be proud to call his own. Inventive genre's my first Kitano, and I'll be coming back.

  5. Vinod Narayan's rating of the film Outrage

    Outrage is a good Japanese yakuza film. Pretty violent which was expected. It had so many characters and so you are not sure the direction it is moving till the end. May be such movies are meant to be open to take any direction and not suppose to end in an all is well note...

  6. dominique s.'s rating of the film Outrage

    This was my first Takeshi Kitano film and I really liked it. I didn't understand what was going on until the middle of the film, but other than that, everything was awesome. The brutal action was right up my alley. Many people say this is far from being his best, so I can't wait to see his other films.

  7. Johnny Mislow's rating of the film Outrage

    Plot twist after plot twist. Stressful plot ordeal but represented in such a calm way. Japanese art of simplicity among the chaos

  8. sedmacedo's rating of the film Outrage

    nothing more boring than a plotless bunch of punches

  9. jamesey's rating of the film Outrage

    Lots of backstabbing and plot twists combined with a calming visual style amongst all the chaos.

  10. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Outrage

    Buonissimo film di Kitano,che ho apprezzato più per la quasi maniacalità della messa in scena che per lo sviluppo della trama,che è una cosa vista già mille volte.Takeshi ormai ha raggiunto nei suoi lavori un'eleganza stilistica che imprime sempre nei colori,nelle luci,nei movimenti e nei rallenty sempre dosati.Bella l'escalation finale e la conclusione sfumata,però l'omaggio a Coppola lo poteva fare meglio.3,5*

    باخت باختِ، احمق

  12. Clayton Wong's rating of the film Outrage

    Terrifyingly violent. Takeshi Kitano is always fun to watch onscreen. It's no Kids Return, but even lesser Kitano is better than most.

  13. dschank's rating of the film Outrage

    despite being made by one of the more idiosyncratic voices in gangster movies, this feels flat and derivitive. story-wise, it's the usual resevoir dogs/infernal affairs/the departed routine - lots of bad people making bad decisions, eventually becoming corpses. takeshi tries to liven it up with weird, annoying gore and some plot flourishes that work better in johnnie to films. bewildering, but not in a good way.

  14. msmichel's rating of the film Outrage

    Ho hum. Bit of a regression for Kitano after doing more experimental cinema over the last ten years or so. Nowhere near the same leauge as early pics like 'Violent Cop', 'Sonatine' or his masterpiece 'Fireworks'. Film felt so much like an artist just saying 'let's give them what they want'. This isn't to say the film is worthless but its really just another gangster yarn. Disappointing.

  15. Baroska's rating of the film Outrage

    When will the movie be available on PS3 ?

  16. Michael Reid's rating of the film Outrage

    Back to what he does best so it seems ,to be honest i hated his "Zatoichi "as any self respecting Katsu fan should ,since than most of his films have sank without a trace but this one should put him back on track ,the Kitano i love is the Oyabun of classics like ''Sonatine ".

  17. Gestah's rating of the film Outrage

    Some of his creations like: Hana-Bi and Kikujiro, are serious candidates among best films ever made. His thematical style of narration has a niche of his own. This guy still evokes powerfull emotion in an "industry" filled of recycled ideas and safe methods. Takeshi Kitano has the ability to show hilarious humor and disturbing scenery, mixed with the bizzarre.

  18. mayumi's rating of the film Outrage

  20. Dean Fernando's rating of the film Outrage

    the trailer of this film suggests a return to the form that initially sparked the international interest in Beat Takeshi's films.. can't wait to see it and hope it fares well in competition at Cannes this year.

  21. rado's rating of the film Outrage

    "Outrage" is a riot and KItano is still the one to 'beat'!

  22. willythesalesman's rating of the film Outrage

    All the set up for a Kitano film is here but the way it plays out is significantly different from Kintano's past films. It's like Sonatine and Brother but the romanticism is totally gone and instead cold irony and emotionless violence takes place. Quite a curious film, especially next to something like Brother it feels like Kintano is almost being sardonic to his past self. But to what end?

  23. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film Outrage

    Kitano in auto-pilot. Easy to forget.

  24. hastapura's rating of the film Outrage

    Like *that* montage from the Godfather stretched out to feature length. Cut the ambassador subplot and this'd be pure gold.
