Movie Info

As the Lone Wolf prepares to dispense with an alluring female assassin who sports an elaborate full-body tattoo, his sense of honor clashes with his hunger for justice in this action epic adapted from the Lone Wolf and Cub film series. Now faced with the challenge of fulfilling his mission as the dreaded Yagyu Retsudo attempts to arrange his assassination, the Lone Wolf squares off with an endless horde of Yagyu's most fearsome fighters. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

It just wouldn't be a LONE WOLF AND CUB movie if somebody wasn't violently killed before the opening credits.

Audience Reviews for Lone Wolf and Cub - Baby Cart in Peril

This time, Lone Wolf and Cub battles a female assassin. Gee, I wonder if there will be boobs in this one. Or rather, more than usual haha. O, and you get some more backstory on Ogami's nemesis, Retsudo. My friend and I thought this one was a little...weird. Like it might have had a bigger budget: there were more "chinese fighting styles"/acrobats, there was music during most scenes, and the movie starts right into the plot. Usually, these movies dont get goin til at least 20 mins in (almost always starts out with random killing/duels). Or maybe it was just cuz they got a new director (Buichi Saito). OR, maybe we could just blame my parents' poopy tv. Yea, I'll go with that last one.

the fourth film and quite possibly the best of the series. every scene is beautiful...and bloody! about 200 guys are killed in the final showdown with the yagyu clan. baby cart now equipped with gatling guns! great fun for a rainy saturday afternoon. i wish i hadn't put it off so long

Aside from the first Lone Wolf and Cub, this is the best in the series. And I don't say this because the opening shot in the movie is of a cool tattoo on a naked boob. As always, the direction is tight, the sword fights are fantastic and a beautiful character who flashes her opponents in battle is never a dealbreaker. I dug how the story tied in with Ogami Itto's origins a bit more, but for as entertaining and over the top the final battle was, I'm still not sure how I feel about it. Damn good stuff either way.
