NETFLIX losing streak continues with Jared Leto scifi film Critical mauling

Issued: 2018-03-08

'Beat for beat, one of the most tediously generic yakuza stories imaginable'

Netflix’s recent movie output — Bright, The Cloverfield Paradox, and Mute — have been, its fair to say, disappointing. Despite A-list actors and experienced filmmakers taking their lead, each has received negative reviews and some very mixed online chatter.

A day before reaching the streaming service, a minimal number of reviews for the Jared Leto-led yakuza movie The Outsider has landed. As you may have expected, critics have not taken well to the movie, many finding issue with director Martin Zandvliet’s choice to focus almost entirely on Leto’s controversial ‘outsider’ character.

“You probably don’t need a critic to tell you that The Outsider, a tragically real crime drama in which Jared Leto plays a silent but violent enforcer for the Yakuza in post-war Japan, is 100 per cent percent horrendous,” writes David Ehrlich of IndieWire, scoring the movie D.

The review further criticises the narrative choice of focussing almost entirely on the Western lead rather than Kiyoshi, “a lifelong gangster who can’t exist beyond the underworld ecosystem.”

“The more this film begs to be told from the inside out, the more Zandvliet shoots it from the outside in. It’s enough to make you wish he hadn’t shot it at all,” Ehrlich concludes.
