"Sword Of Vengeance" was the first of six films adapted between 1972 and 1974 from Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima's incredible 110 volume volumes, collectively known as "Lone Wolf and Cub" or "Baby Cart." At a first glance, "Sword Of Vengeance" often hits viewers alike as strangely familiar, and strangely unknown. On the other hand, what ended up on the floor of the editing room was the "annoying material", the background material that introduces the public to its anti-hero, Itto Ogami. While Shogun has found a clever way to tell his story without straying from too much action, the film is narrated by the child, Daigoro. Shockingly, the prisoner is nothing more than a child, almost a baby, who is almost lost in his white robes of death, leaving the viewer distressed and uncertain if he understands what is happening or not. As the child sits immobile, without resistance, Ogami "steps" behind him and draws his sword .... With a story like this, the rest is rest, a good movie!
