SHOGUN ASSASSIN (1980 JAPAN U.S.) D: KENJI MISUMI D/W: ROBERT HOUSTON W/P: DAVID WEISMAN
Highlights from the first two entries in the classic Japanese LONE WOLF AND CUB series were edited together (coherently), minus the complicated sub-plots and narration from Daigoro was added, as well as a pumping disco soundtrack. The resulting non-stop parade of expertly edited bloody action is a lot better than you might expect, even if you're already familiar with the series. Sandra Bergman provides some of the voices. Considered a sequel to LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH (a re-cut version of Part 3 in the original series) until the series was released outside Japan with subtitles in the 1990`s.
