Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Peril ★★★

Nice to see the father/son dynamic moved to the fore by means of the duo being separated for a time, and it's refreshing to see Ogami more vulnerable as he just barely survives the final battle, but the film is disjointed thanks to too many villains, a jarringly funky soundtrack, and back-to-back-to-back flashbacks.

It does begin with the best topless knife fight I've ever seen, though. Just keep in mind I still haven't seen Gone with the Wind so that may change.
