Shogun Assassin 2: Lightning Swords of Death [DVD]

Shogun Assassin 2: Lightning Swords of Death [DVD]The original Shogun Assassin was essentially an edited version of the first two Lone Wolf and Cub films. It took part of the first film (Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance) and most of the second film (Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx) and was edited together and overdubbed

Shogun Assassin 2: Lightning Swords of Death is essentially the 3rd film in the Lone Wolf and Cub series – the Japanese film was called Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades.

It’s actually a really good film and probably better than Shogun Assassin (although lacking Shogun Assassin’s ‘cult’ factor).

Product Description:
Wandering the countryside with death never far behind, Ogami rescues a prostitute and offers to be punished in her place (which means being beaten to within an inch of his life). Impressed by his fortitude, a Chamberlain hires Ogami to assassinate a ruthless Governor, only to find out that the same Governor wants Ogami for a mission of his own.

When Ogami refuses the Governor’s offer, he must face a series of assassins, including a dangerous gunslinger, a master swordsman and an army of soldiers. And to make matters worse, a former samurai keeps politely asking if they can have a duel!

To ensure that not a single drop of blood was omitted, this special collector’s edition was created using a new digital transfer of the original Japanese film.
