Outrage Beyond – Review

This was the first film I saw for the Sydney Film Festival this year. I was disappointed. It had much promise, but I think tended to get lost in far too many characters who were not properly established before they were shot. There were also continuity and reality issues, such as the main hero surviving a gunshot to the stomach for some time without bleeding to death, any apparent medical attention or any lasting disability. There seemed to be a lot of random violence and this tended to diminish the effect it could have had if they left it more like a constant threat that someone could lose it and blow your head off in a rage. There were some good moments, but it did not live up to its promise: 3/5.
