Outrage Beyond

Outrage_Beyond2013 Asian Film Awards – Winner Best Director.
2012 Mainichi Film Concours – Winner Best Supporting Actor.

The direct sequel to 2010’s Outrage. Less stylish, more chatty, but more engrossing, and just as violent and chauvinistic as the original.
The politicians are still corrupt, so do the police; some of the cops are quite sneaky too. The Yakuza members still wear their fancy black suits, ride shiny black Lexus (okay, this is Tokyo, so it’s Toyota) and Mercedes, dine and drink like kings, and stab each other’s backs (figuratively), then shot each other’s heads (literally) without much mercy. Cut more fingers (or in this case, bite off), and the next logical ingredient to the formula is, of course, setting the old–and turned out to be nowhere near dead–Ohtomo out from prison to get his wrinkled hands soaked in blood once again.

My Rating: 7/10
