    Synopsis


    Outrage: Way of the Yakuza
    Takeshi Kitano (aka Beat Takeshi) returns to his roots as a star and director with this edgy gangster tale. The Chairman (Soichiro Kitamura) is the head of the Sanno-kai crime family, Japan's most powerful underworld syndicate, with his right-hand man, Ikemoto (Jun Kunimura), handling much of the crew's daily business. The Chairman's greatest rival is Murase (Renji Ishibashi), whose operation has made its money in drug peddling while the Sanno-kai has been striving to move its operations into more legitimate schemes. The Chairman believes that Ikemoto has become too close to Murase for comfort, and he wants the two sides to distance themselves. Ikemoto, not wanting to dirty his hands with any unpleasantness, orders one of his mechanics, Otomo (Beat Takeshi), to deliver a few reminders that the two gangs are on opposite sides. What begins as some brutal but petty recriminations by Otomo and his crew against Murase's underlings turns into a private war, and the violence on each side escalates with each exchange. Autoreiji (aka Outrage) received its world premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Beat Takeshi at his finest. He stars in and directed this film.Gratuitous sequences of brutality and gore depicted as an art form. Welcome to the world of the Yakuza. Anyone that has an appreciation for Japanese gangster films of high quality should look no further. This movie delivers.

      I'm a fan of Takeshi Kitano's gangster films but this one was lacking. It's ok. He has much better films in my opinion. This is just a one time watch for me. It's not terrible but not great either. Mediocre

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
