ADORE this movie. A real downer packaged in a bubblegum wrapper. Perfection.
The second installment of Kenji Misumi's Lone Wolf & Cub film series is gorgeously shot, highly entertaining AND is a great primer on feudal Japan in the Edo-era. Ogami Itto and Daigoro are undoubtedly the greatest father-son warrior duo ever committed to film. Watch this now.
