As a film purist I usually prefer to see films as they were originally meant to be seen but in this case I just can't help but love SHOGUN ASSASSIN!! The movie consists of the best bits from the first two (or three) Lone Wolf and Cub movies from Japan with classic dubbing and a GREAT synthesised soundtrack that adds a lot of atmosphere to the proceedings. I've seen a couple of the original Lone Wolf films and they are good but not as much fun as this.... wonderful cinematography, top notch action, loads of quotable dialogue, hosepipes of gore and great soundtrack adds up to an all round classic movie --- I haven't seen the DVD yet so can't comment on the quality of the print etc... +++ "He is the son of a Mad Wolf!!"
