A particularly good babycart
18 May 2004 | by jessie_limeySee all my reviews

I am a huge fan of samurai movies and for fans of the genre, this will not disappoint. For newcomers too, this film has much to offer, by the way of a great storyline and fantastic swordplay. The story is particularly sensitive and heartfelt compared to other Lone Wolf And Cub films, and is a wonderful example of Japanese mentality that there is no black-and-white. I loved the character of Oyuki, she has great depth and feeling to her and I felt myself rooting for both her and Lone Wolf, despite the fact that he is hired to kill her. Top class Samurai film. 5/5.
