At last... the riveting, bloody, and ultra-stylish Lone Wolf and Cub series, together with the classic Shogun Assassin (all based on the perennially popular manga by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima) available together in one boxset, officially licenced from Toho, fully uncut, and freshly remastered.
Filled with memorable set pieces, iconic characters and violent action, this series more than lives up to its reputation as a pinnacle of Japanese exploitation cinema whose musings on the meaning of honour in a lawless world still resonate today. In White Heaven In Hell alone, Ogami Itto kills 150 people onscreen, the highest body count for a single character in a single film in cinema history.
