All the betrayal, double-crossing, and action-filled gun battles of OUTRAGE are back in OUTRAGE CODA (アウトレイジ 最終章, Autoreiji Saishusho, 2017), the final chapter of Takeshi Kitano’s acclaimed underworld film series. Five years after surviving the all-out war between the Sanno and Hanabishi crime families, former yakuza boss Otomo (Beat Takeshi) now works in South Korea for Mr. Chang, a renowned fixer whose influence extends internationally. But when a relatively minor incident causes tensions to escalate out of control between Chang Enterprises and the Hanabishi, Otomo must return to Japan to settle the score once and for all.
“This ruthlessly austere yakuza triptych marks a return to basics for director-star Takeshi Kitano, aka Beat Takeshi,” said Jonathan Romney of Screen International. “[It] shows him honing his crime movie craft in a way that consolidates his mastery”.
