Lone Wolf and Cub 4: Baby Cart in Peril
1972 film Starring Wakayama Tomisaburo as the assassin Ogami Itto.
Oyuki, a tattooed female assassin is killing every man that is sent up against her. Along with her deadly use of the short blade, she strips to the waist to reveal the elaborate tattoos on her chest and back. She then cuts off her victims' topknots, or chonmage, which brings dishonor to the dead man and his family. Ogami Ittō, the disgraced former shogun's executioner is hired to kill Oyuki.
Classic samurai flick that is worth it for some kick ass samurai/ninja action. This one is a lot better than the Shogun's Ninja. What do you get with this masterpiece? Flaming swords, tattooed naked female bodies, machine gun baby carts, bloody ninja action, and severed limbs galore. I recommend this one.
