  • 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!

  • Conclusion: No other martial arts film in history has ever been released so many times over the years on so many different formats than Shogun Assassin!! As any true martial arts fan knows this is the most classic samurai film in history, a fantastic classic tale of revenge, the story is great, the cast is awesome and the action scenes are violent and bloody as he leaves piles of bodies in his path of destruction and not forgetting the iconic music score.

  • Conclusion: If you like Ninja/martial arts films then this is a must. Blu ray is OK. Not amazing. Picture good enough - some grain, but audio poor at the begining with some digital distortion on vocals. This issue does not run for the whole film and shouldn't stop you buying this classic.

  • Conclusion: just when you think that one of the best samurai movies ever cant get any better, they clean it up to 1080p and release it on blu ray. Santa will be bringing this for me!! wish they had done the lone wolf blu ray box set...hint..

  • Conclusion: for all you people who know this movie well the picture has never looked better...its in know way perfect and does show some grain at times...but this is a big improvement over the dvd..as for the sound its basic mono but its clear and sharp comes through the front three speakers well....the steelbook is a nice edition and would get it while you have a chance...the extras go down a treat with some good trailers...

essential for lone wolf / shogun assassin fans

  • Conclusion: Well having been a long time fan of lone wolf and cub (and with no sign of that coming to Blu-ray) I decided to pick up shogun assassin (the 1st 2 films in the lone wolf series remixed in 1980 into a 1hour 25 min story). I have to say as a fan I was very impressed, comparing the quality to that of previous versions of shogun assassin and the lone wolf series on DVD.
