Shogun Assassin (1980)
Movie Review by The Undertaker

Shogun Assassin (1980) This film might be one of the goriest non-horror films ever. Needless to say, it's a classic must-see for everyone. Shogun is actually the 1st two films in the Japanese samurai classic Lone Wolf and Cub series edited together to make one awesome film. The soundtrack was changed and with a little dubbing we get instant bloodshed cult phenomenon. If you have any interest at all in samurai films, ninjas, feudal Japan, blood, or swordplay, then this is simply a must own movie. You see it seems our Lone Wolf was once the Shogun's decapitator until the ruler went a bit crazy and fucked our friend over, killing his wife in the process. Now Lone Wolf rooms the land fighting off ninjas, more ninjas, and in this film the 3 evil Masters of Death. He travels with his young son he pushes around in a wooden baby cart (the other nickname for the series) that also acts as an armory. Just check out the scene with the cart whirling through a group of baddies with it's blades extending from the wheels cutting off everyone at the ankle, it is a beautiful thing. The movie is cool in other aspects aside from the grue. I mean the narration, which is done from the kid's perspective, is cool as is the storyline in general. People don't just die in Assassin, after getting the fatal cut, they spray for glorious seconds. The father and son thing makes for a unique duo when it comes to killing. The little kid proves helpful in more than one instance. The kid was lucky to be alive anyway after his father gave him a choice of life or death based on whether the child crawled over to a ball or a sword place in front of him. He knew the future would be tough and filled with danger, especially so with a child, so the child was given the chance to choose his own destiny. Smart choice kid, smart choice. This movie might be the most widely known samurai (chambara) film of all time and once you see it you will wanna see the rest of the series that this came from. The fight scenes are simply a joy to watch, making Shogun Assassin many cuts above most Japanese films.
