About the Film
Censored, banned, bootlegged, mistreated, but ultimately unstoppable, this breathtaking release is what Shogun Assassin fans have been waiting for. Unquestionably the most popular samurai film in the West since the days of Akira Kurosawa, this chanbara classic was lifted from a hugely popular comic book saga and, still wet, transferred glistening to the screen. After being framed for disloyalty to his clan lord, disgraced ronin Itto Ogami (with three-year-old son Daigoro in tow) travels medieval Japan as the most skilled samurai-for-hire bar none. But as the treachery and obstacles in his latest mission quickly pile up, Ogami is forced to handle it the only way he knows how. A re-scored, re-dubbed reassembly of the first two films in the Lone Wolf & Cub series, the result has become an ageless cult sensation in its own right.
no doubt the best samurai movie ever made.
Epic film one of the best Martial Arts filem of all time up there with Enter the Dragon Superb
For good movie fans absolute crap
The worsest ever seen samurai movie, and I have seen many. Very impressive showing of non-stop blood streams into the air, but so cheap, not worth even renting. It's the trail of a guy killing about 400 enemies one after the other. When you like to count the dead bodies and liters of blood, see this movie. I went for the five stars, and I am very disappointed.
