Product Description

Product Description

All seven films in the 'Lone Wolf and Cub' Japanese samurai action series. Viewed by many as the pinnacle of Japanese exploitation cinema, the films chronicle the adventures of disgraced Shogun assassin Ogami Itto (Tomisaburo Wakayama) and his son Daigoro (Akihiro Tomikawa), who sell their services as assassins while continuing their bloody quest for revenge against the hit squad who killed Itto's wife. In 'Sword of Vengeance' (1971), executioner Ogami Itto is framed for treason and declared an outlaw. Accompanied only by his young son Daigoro, he sets out on a trail of vengeance against the secret society that murdered his wife and poisoned his reputation. In 'Babycart at the River Styx' (1972), Ogami Itto - aka 'Lone Wolf' - continues his bloody quest through the land he calls Hell. The Yagyu clan are determined to see him dead, and send the deadly female assassins, the Akashi after him. Beyond them, Lone Wolf must defeat the Gods of death in order to win his 500 pieces of gold. In 'Babycart to Hades' (1973), the Lone Wolf provides a rare display of compassion when he rescues a young girl from her pimp. On the road again, the Wolf finds his services in demand, as he and the child Diagoro - the Cub - travel a violent path to Hades. In the fourth film, 'Babycart in Peril' (1972), the Wolf has become separated from his Cub, who has fallen into the hands of Itto's deadly rival. A rescue is effected, but Itto must now carry out his latest assignment; to kill tattooed martial arts mistress Oyuki (Michie Azuma). In 'Babycart in the Land of Demons' (1973), Lone Wolf is hired by the Kuroda clan to protect the destiny of its succession. This duty leads him into a confrontation with the evil Retsudo (Minoru Ohki), as well as forcing him to turn against the very clan he is supposed to be protecting. In 'White Heaven in Hell' (1974), the Wolf and his Cub face a new peril when the Yagyu clan leader Retsudo employs his bloodthirsty daughter to destroy them once and for all. If she fails in her task, Retsudo will unleash the supernatural might of the Yagyu army, against which even the Lone Wolf cannot stand. 'Shogun Assassin' (1979) is the re-cut version of the first two films, which was famously banned as a video nasty on its initial UK release in the early 1980s.

Review

'Magnificent. Unlike their previous Lone Wolf, of which the less said the better, this is a gem. All the dark scenes that were previously lost in shadows are now illuminated, and the quality and sharpness of image finally allows us to enjoy Lone Wolf and Cub as the masterpiece it truly is'. --Amazon Customer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Just some short comments here. Obviously if you like the manga series, you will adore these movies. There's a lot of hack and slash, lots of violence and bloodshed, and very little talk. But if you're reading this, you know why you're here, so let me just say: you know what to expect from the story, and that's exactly what you'll get.
On another note, however. We're used from old kung-fu, samurai movies that the quality is quite poor. LW&C however, is of exceptionally poor quality. The images are often very dark, so dark even, that you can hardly make up anything of it. The subtitles of this set are the same as the old VHS ones. Big gooey green letters, the usual kind for these movies, but you would expect at least that they would clean that up. It's obvious that this is just a direct dump from the old VHS versions to DVD. And the box is flimsy to say the least. But, you'll find that this is probably the cheapest way to get hold of these cult classic movies, and the other versions won't be much better so, buy this box if you enjoy the series!
