Ed C (ca) wrote: One line summary: Growing pains in the yakuza family structures.----------------------- The film is set five years after the action in Outrage ended. The utterly corrupt Detective Kataoka is still in place, perhaps more entrenched than ever. Detective Shigeta, a somewhat more straight arrow policeman, accompanies Kataoka on some of his tasks. Kato is still the Chairman of the Sanno family. Ishihara, formerly in Otomo's clan, is now Kato's underboss. Sanno has grown considerably in wealth and power, partly because they absorbed Murase's drug business from the first film. Other shifts in the Sanno family are placement of older executives by younger ones, and valuing acquiring money over muscling other families. As the story begins, there is plenty of fuel in the powder keg: the old guard resent the younger upstarts; when one family expands, others just might feel threatened; the cops have decided to squeeze Sanno growth. In the film's opening sequence, the police lift a car out of the water. Kataoka and Shigeta arrive, so one knows there is a yakuza connection. One of the bodies is that of a high government official, and evidence points to the Sanno family issuing the hit order. The police see that Sanno thinks its money is sufficient to buy enough protection for them to openly order the killing of a government official. This seems to be too much to bear. Kataoka sets about riling up the yakuza against each other. He encourages one of the old guard in the Sanno family (and two of his followers) to attempt to unseat and replace Underboss Ishihara. He arranges a meeting with Fuse, the Chairman of the Hanabishi family. That seems to go well, but when the trio report back to Kato, they find that Fuse had described the whole situation to Kato. Fatalities ensue. Resentment increases. Kataoka gets schooled by his superior: did he not know that the Sanno and the Hanabishi were secretly allied? To get the pot boiling even harder, Kataoka arranges for the release of Otomo, whom Kimura (released years before) shanked in prison. Kataoka had misled many (such as Chairman Kato) into thinking Otomo was dead. Now the detective brings him forth to heat things up. Kataoka arranges a meeting between Kimura and Otomo, which goes surprisingly well. Also, he nudges them toward 'helping' the alliance between Hanabishi and Sanno to fail magnificently. That is most of the early context of the film. How goes the execution? Quite well, I would say.------Scores----- Cinematography: 10/10 Excellent, professional. Sound: 8/10 No particular problems, but them again, I was following the sub-titles. Acting: 10/10 Even better than the original. Screenplay: 8/10 Nice story development. Not as many plot points as the original, but easier to follow.

Dutch V (mx) wrote: Granted this is just an Inside Man knock off which they even admit in a line towards the end. This movie is just a bank robbery movie. Very predictable, acting wasn't the greatest, but it wasn't horrible either. The cops in this movie are idiots, and that is what made this movie less enjoyable. Their response to what was going on was ridiculous and provided no real conflict. In fact other than the wounded guy there was no real conflict and I never thought they weren't going to get away with it. Why? because they would ask for something and the cops would be like, anything to help the situation. Other than that it was okay. Nothing special. Maybe something to watch if you don't have any better options.

This movie is incredibly awkward to watch, but that's part of its appeal and charm. As a lover of independent films, this fit perfectly into my repertoire. Love stories like this one do not come around too often, and thus I enjoyed every bit of it.

When I watched it about 5 years ago I wasn't really sold on it & found it to be one of the lesser Pam Grier blaxpoitation flix. Although I prefer her calling people mother-fucker & blowing them away I enjoyed this one a lot more this time out..and she does blow some mother-fuckers away; she just doesn't call them mother-fuckers. Pam Grier is one sexy mama w/ soul style to spare as she takes one some loan sharks that are messing w/ her pop. It's badass lite but the soundtrax is right on. Love that theme song that says she's kickin ass & takin names...I just wish we got to see her sugar boobies especially in that cat scrap
Kim B (fr) wrote: Paper thin plot, cheap script, and poor editing make this nutty comedy dated. While at the time it came out it was probably hilarious, watching it now it seems kinda dumb and disjointed compared to more recent comedies. Got a few laughs from me and easy to follow, but def sexist and stereotypical film. Seems like a teenage boy wrote this film at times. The best parts are the cameos from the different comedians and the silly gopher lol.
