Fifth about The Seventh

Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades (Kozure Ookami: Shi ni Kaze ni Mukau Ubaguruma)

Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades: once more directed by Misumi Kenji, the third entry in the series of manga-based chanbara films is once more light in plot, even if it allows the character to display an honorable side that had been somewhat hidden, making him rounder in the process. The main antagonist is likewise an interesting character, even if he seems almost unrelated to the story as a whole. Wakayama Tomisaburoo repeats his intensity, but it is Katoo Goo as the ruined, conscious samurai that leaves the deepest mark. The action and violence are relatively subdued, but when they happen the red is a dominant color; it’s shown conventionally, both in editing (by Taniguchi Toshio) and the way it is shot (again by Makiura Chishi). In fact, the film’s pace drags a bit.
