This film is a remake or just a melding of the series "Lone Wolf and Cub." A classic samurai epic in which the emperor's executioner is exiled along with his infant son and must survive on the road in feudal Japan.

This western release is actually two films cobbled together and has enjoyed notoriety because of it's "video nasty" reputation. There is a lot of blood, but the violence is comparatively cartoon-like (although the scene involving the female assassins proving their worth is rather grim!) It has some nice imagery and there is actually a modicum of sensitivity in the relationship between the samurai and his son but it does suffer from it's schizophrenic roots; some scenes make little sense and the narrative is sporadic. It's good, but I'd much rather see both films individually in their original format.
