The Outsider

Crime Drama


A former US soldier joins the Yakuza.

"The Outsider" is a slick production that looks pretty but has little else going for it. The sparse dialogue with no room for artisitic interpretation leaves our leading man with nothing to work with in a storyline that produces more questions than answers. The lengthy running time does this flick no favours but the high body count and impressive albeit infrequent gore are highlights in an otherwise dismal expedition. Over and out.
