Not 100% this fits, but it’s my favorite film trilogy so eff it. This is the highlight of the trilogy, too.
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.
