More yakuza drama from Beat Takeshi Posted by: from: San Antonio, TX on Takeshi Kitano is one of Japan's major stars and for over 20 years he has bee directing Yakuza films that are notable for their nihilism and long build ups to abrupt and staggeringly violent climaxes. Beyond Outrage is the first sequel to any of his yakuza films; picking up immediately after his film Outrage (which you should watch first). Beyond Outrage mixes up some classic elements from Japanese cinema, such as a detective who seems to think he is like Toshiro Mifune's Yojimbo and can manipulate rival yakuza families into destroying one another, and crime film tropes. While it is still enjoyable for fans of the genre, there is really nothing new to see here and Kitano's style is probably the reason this is even an enjoyable film at all. Video and audio are strong (no surprise since this is a new movie) and the blu ray does offer an hour long making of feature which is more than we tend to get from non-criterion foreign film releases. I can only confidently recommend this to fans of Kitano and yakuza films.
