“ …a film that always has humour bubbling just underneath its hard-boiled surface.” — Screen Daily
In 2010, Takeshi Kitano put out the wild yakuza flick Outrage, an ultraviolent thriller dripping with black humour and cynicism that wowed audiences worldwide and became his biggest hit in Japan. Now the sly maverick of modern cinema is back with a vengeance, thanks to an eagerly awaited sequel that picks up right where the previous film left off.
When Otomo (played by Kitano) gets out of jail after serving his sentence, he discovers a world where yakuza gangs have grown to infiltrate Japan’s economic and political spheres. Young hotshots are climbing the
rungs of power as the old guard is pushed aside. Nothing will ever be the same. Yet when a shrewd cop pulls out all the stops to crush organized crime and uses Otomo to revive old tensions between the groups, the situation changes and violence explodes. Betrayals, revenge and twists of fate take centre stage in an outrageous crime spree that’s a cross between the work of Kinji Fukasaku and Tex Avery.
