Movie Info

Five swordsmen hire Ogami, each revealing a portion of his mission as they are defeated in this fifth entry in the Lone Wolf and Cub series. After defeating the swordsmen, Ogami discovers his mission is to save a clan's honor by killing its royal family. The senile lord of the clan has substituted his daughter (raised as a boy) to be the heir he never had. In addition to murdering the lord, his concubine, and the girl, Ogami must stop a document revealing the deception from reaching the hands of Lord Retsudo Yagyu. Daigoro is again separated from Ogami in a delicate sequence revealing much about the relationship between father and son, and finding young Daigoro learning to maintain honor in the face of injustice. After seeking out the lord and carrying out his mission in a final battle within the castle, father and son become closer than ever as they follow the road to their final battle. Graced with the finest photography of the series, along with excellent action set pieces, Baby Cart in the Land of Demons is noted as possibly the best (as well as the grimmest) of the series. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Lone Wolf and Cub - Baby Cart in the Land of Demons (Kozure Ôkami: Meifumadô) (Shogun Assassin 4: Five Fistfuls of Gold)

All Critics (4)

  • There's double and triple crosses, and the usual quests for honor and vengeance mixing together into one.

  • The film is smart and entertaining but doesn't stand on its own as well as others in the series; it's busy setting the tone for the final showdown. Nonetheless, it will appeal to fans, and Wakayama is always worth watching.

  • The penultimate installment of the LONE WOLF AND CUB series gets back to the basics ... Just plenty of mano a mano swordfighting.

Audience Reviews for Lone Wolf and Cub - Baby Cart in the Land of Demons (Kozure Ôkami: Meifumadô) (Shogun Assassin 4: Five Fistfuls of Gold)

½

Definitely not the best in the series but enough of a departure from the previous installment in the series to make things interesting. It's a slow build up to the final amazing 15 minutes. The fights with the messengers are pretty well done (namely with the one on fire!) but the sidebar with the pickpockets seemed unnecessary. And oddly enough there's no nudity and no one gets raped in this movie.
