Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades

Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades or Kozure Ôkami: Shinikazeni mukau ubaguruma is the third Japanese film in the Lone Wolf and Cub series.

This film was also dubbed in english and renamed Shogun Assassin 2: Lightning Swords of Death, and was positioned as the sequel to the cult classic Shogun Assassin.

The film was directed by Kenji Misumi and once again stars Tomisaburo Wakayama in the lead role.

The plot of this installment sees Ogami hired by a female crime boss called Tozio. Ogami quickly gets caught up in the politics that are causing tensions between Tozio father’s clan and an informant named Gamba. Much double bluffing and cat and mouse plots take place.

The film slowly builds towards an epic climax where Ogami takes on an army, and full power of the babycart comes into full effect – all the secret compartments and hidden weapons that Ogami has stored in Daigoro’s pram are used to full effect in a spectacular battel.
