A favourite of Quentin Tarantino (a spliced version of the first two instalments later produced for the American market called Shogun Assassin is the film that The Bride and her daughter watch as a bedtime story in Kill Bill: Vol. 2), Lone Wolf and Cub is a six-part series based on the iconic manga of the same name.
This first in the series, Sword of Vengeance, acts as origin story. After being framed for treason Ogami Itto, a now exiled former executioner for the Shogun, flees the capital and becomes a wandering assassin for hire. But the expert swordsman does not travel alone, he is accompanied by his infant son in a hand-cart laden with hidden weaponry.
When the Lone Wolf and Cub enter a remote spa town, they soon discover it has fallen under the control of a gang of bandits and are subsequently taken captive. The series’ roots in manga is clear to see as blades clash, blood sprays, and limbs fly in a frenzy of exaggerated yet exhilarating comic-book violence.
