  • Summary: This western release is actually two films cobbled together and has enjoyed notoriety because of it's "video nasty" reputation. There is a lot of blood, but the violence is comparatively cartoon-like (although the scene involving the female assassins proving their worth is rather grim!

AnimEgo shows us how it's done.

  • Excerpt: Apparently this is AnimEgo's first BD release and they really have to be applauded for their efforts. To go back and use the source material of the original Lone Wolf & Cub movies had to be a real labor of love, I daresay it's been given just as much care and attention as a Criterion BD restoration.

  • Excerpt: This must be the only film that I can think of that has the best recutting and dubbing! I've seen the original two films, and the American version SHOGUN ASSASSIN is so much better! The blu-ray is amazing.

You're (Sho)gunna Like This... (Sorry, I couldn't think up better...)

  • Summary: I bought this recently as I hadn't watched it in a very long time. I wasn't disappointed, thanks to this wonderful transfer (far superior to the dismal Vipco DVD quality). It looks better than ever, the myriad amounts of blood look particularly vibrant.
