5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one to buy!!!
THIS is the Lone Wolf and Cub boxed set to buy.

High quality dvd collection, beautiful colours, simply superb!

It includes Shogun Assassin as well, as a bonus!

Get this one...this boxed set is the definitive one to get...don't cheap out on cheaper box sets, as you may be dissapointed by picture transfer quality.

Picture quality...

2.0 out of 5 stars Remaster flawed. Give it 2 1/2 stars.
I'm not going to get into reviewing LW&C as story, the series is fantastic. But the touted digital remaster is disappointing. Some of the problems are due to encoding film that has grain, this condition is often amplified in the digitizing process and creates noise (swimming pixels) as is the case here. Also the blacks are severely crushed. There is a total lack of gray...

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Japanese Cinema, 3 Dec. 2012

This is one of the classic Japanese cinema productions.

I have watched it in VHS, DVD and now in Blue Ray. It gets more and more unbelievable as the series progresses but that is part of the charm. The sword tachniques are excellent and the storylines complex enough to keep them interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars You're in for a treat, 1 Sept. 2011
This review is from: The Complete Lone Wolf & Cub Boxset [DVD] [1972] (DVD)
This is just pure class from beginning to end. It was a joy to watch shogun assassin again since an break of some 20 years but the real pleasure is watching the films behind SA, which was an american edit that cut the first two films to shreads to create an incomplete (but amazing, even by today's standards) splatter film. Kill Bill pays homage to SA and rightly so but this box set delivers so much more detail. Love it, love it, love it. I do.

A true portrait of life in feudal japan.Fight scenes well over the top but still entertaining. For me the star was the cub.

4.0 out of 5 stars For 500 pieces of Gold......., 14 Oct. 2013

Great series of Samurai movies! Based on the original Manga comic book series which spanned 28 volumes! The six movies are simply brilliant, action scenes are well done (if a little on the excessive gore side). The movies are well packaged with some cool artwork on each case. This set also included Shogun Assassin as a bonus disc, which is the first two movies re-edited to make an entirely different movie. The remastering is awesome too.

I've been looking out for this set for years and I was delighted to find it on Amazon. A bit dated now but still shows the hypocrisy between 'honourable' ways and reality

5.0 out of 5 stars great series of japanese film, 11 Jun. 2013

The acting takes a little getting used to but that's common for any nationality. The series is quite a simple story. If you're into marshal arts it's great, if not don't buy it

Fans of the 80's Shogun Assassin (included in this box set) will appreciate the original story. Must watch, completes the story.
