Pretty standard yakuza fare. Gets an extra star for inventive use of a pitching machine.
You have to watch the first "Outrage" before this one. "Beyond Outrage" doesn't really work as a standalone. Great movies both, btw.
This is a great movie, one of my favorites, but its the sequel to Outrage, and you really want to watch that one first.
