Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 09/12/2006
"[A] highly influential exploitation film from 1980 that cuts together sequences from the first two features in the Japanese 'Lone Wolf and Cub' series into a single movie..."
Total Film - 02/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "The swordplay looks as sharp as a freshly forged Katana, but the bond between father and son remains the most disarming facet of his saga."

Product Description:

A shogun master turns against lone wolf, his faithful head-cutting samurai servant. Lone wolf is forced into battle against the shogun, the shogun's son, and a host of shogun ninja warriors....

Plot Synopsis:

Lone Wolf, once an executioner for the Shogun, seeks revenge on his former boss and his Ninja flock after they kill his wife.

Plot Keywords:

Action | Martial Arts | Vengeance | Violence

Production Notes:

  • "Shogun Assassin" was adapted from two Japanese films, "Baby-Cart at the River Styx" and "Sword of Vengeance." These works were part of a more extensive "Baby-Cart" series that followed the adventures of Lone Wolf and his son.
    Only 12 minutes of "Sword of Vengeance," the first entry in the series, are used in the American version.
    The footage from the Japanese originals was reedited, and American actors synched the dialogue; an original score and new sound effects were added.
