The Worst of the Series
1 June 2009 | by (Manassas, Va) – See all my reviews

I've seen most of the other Lone Wolf and Cub movies. I've been happy with all of them except for this one.

The martial arts sequences are excellent. The acting is great; however, this movie drove home an important point about film-making: If the plot is incomprehensible, the movie is lost on the viewer.

Why did he listen to those he listened to and kill those he killed? He was supposed to be saving a particular clan, but ended up pretty much wiping it out. In the end, people kill themselves with no explanation and Lone Wolf walks away with his cub...

Part of the problem with my understanding might have been that this movie, unless the others that I own, was dubbed. It might have been over simplified...
