Movie Info

Installment number three in the Lone Wolf and Cub saga finds Ogami hired by a female yakuza to kill a corrupt governor. While wandering the countryside, Ogami stumbles upon a brutal crime being committed by three mercenaries accompanied by the ronin Kanbei. After killing the mercenaries, Ogami refuses to do battle with the ronin, taking refuge in a nearby town. It is there that Ogami meets Toizo and is offered the job of assassinating the corrupt governor Gamba. After exposing the previous leader's mental illness and exploiting it to his own benefit, Gamba is now the wealthy and powerful leader of the clan. Gamba attempts to hire Ogami to kill the previous governor, then suspects that he is Ogami's intended target after he refuses the job. His suspicions are confirmed, as Ogami is led into a treacherous series of cat-and-mouse games with Gamba's men. What follows is an incredible orgy of violence as Ogami single-handedly faces off against an entire army of men, then faces Kanbei on the blood-drenched battlefield. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

"Baby Cart To Hades" takes a slower pace than usual before building to a climactic crescendo of blood and steel.

Audience Reviews for Kozure Ôkami: Shinikazeni mukau ubaguruma (Lone Wolf and Cub - Baby Cart to Hades)

½

The third film in the 'Lone Wolf and Cub' series begins feeling different to the other two, it initially moves at a slower pace setting up story, developing characters and building towards the climax, and this is where it really kicks off. The climax is one of the most (if not the) most impressive sword fighting moments I've seen, it even beats Azumi's finale. In terms of the whole film though I still enjoyed the second one more as it felt like it had more emotion portrayed within it.

aka 'perambulator against the winds of death!' the third film in lone wolf and cub series is a bit weaker than the first two but it's almost made up for by the spectacular climax in which ogami itto defeats a whole army with his baby cart from a bond film
