The fifth and probably the best entry into the Lone Wolf and Cub series
6 December 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love the Lone Wolf and Cub series, they are the greatest series of action movies ever made! Tomisaburo Wakayama is my favourite samurai (well, technically ronin) of all time and Daigoro is the greatest "sidekick." I love every one of these movies but this has got to be my favourite for many reasons.

The swordplay in this one is amazing and relentless. There is barely a minute without some sort of fight and none are repetitive. There always seems to be a new way to off someone with plenty of blood. The story is particularly in-depth in this one, with an interesting plot about deceit and betrayal within the Kuroda clan. Of particular note is the focus on the relationship between Itto and Daigoro, which in this entry is very unique and moving. The cinematography is as usual stunning, it really showcases Japan's beautiful countryside.

Be sure not to miss this entry into this amazing series.

5/5
