The legendary Manga story of a wandering assassin and his son explodes into life in vivid, violent live action, as Japanese cinema produces the first unashamedly serious adaptation in this retrospective. Spawning a further five films, Lone Wolf and Cub’s unforgettable, blood-sprayed origin story would famously be re-edited, spliced together with portions of the second film, and dubbed to produce the notorious Shogun Assassin for western audiences. This rarely screened original cut is far superior.
