    Censored, banned, bootlegged, mistreated, but ultimately unstoppable, this breathtaking high-definition special edition is the release 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: a crazed thrill-ride in a booby-trapped baby cart, propelled on arterial spray, hurtling gleefully to nowhere.

You're (Sho)gunna Like This... (Sorry, I couldn't think up better...)

I bought this recently as I hadn't watched it in a very long time. I wasn't disappointed, thanks to this wonderful transfer (far superior to the dismal Vipco DVD quality). It looks better than ever, the myriad amounts of blood look particularly vibrant. If you seek a wealth of special features, however, you may be disappointed. Having said that, the trailers for the original Lone Wolf And Cub films and the Samuel L. Jackson interview are a nice touch. All in all, a brilliant film and a decent blu-ray for the price.

Shogun Assassin (babycart)

Everything I hoped for. It was so good I'm fearful about getting the set of 6 films (Lone Wolf & Cub) in case I'm disappointed by the quality.
