Charismatic ronin Kiba (Isao Natsuyagi) returns, once again entangled in a complex web of intrigue, involving a crooked goldmine owner, a cynical swordsman, and an arrogant dojo master. Master filmmaker Hideo Gosha brings his trademark tight pacing and stylish action to this brisk morality play, inevitably punctuated by the explosions of violent swordplay beloved by fans of the genre.

"Isao Natsuyagi's returns as ronin Kiba, the Wolf in Goshen's follow up to classic "chanbara" (swordfight film). Goshen again uses silence with isolated noise, jump cuts, zooms, odd angles, stellar fight choreography, and plenty of blood make the film stylishly satisfying and an exemplar of 1960's action cinema...This sequel is as satisfying and edifying as its predecessor, and another great example of Japanese cinema from the sixties. Highly Recommended." - EMRO

"If your patrons love samurai movies or Japanese action films, Samurai Wolf II: Hell Cut would be a perfect selection for public library shelves. Gritty, fun, and well-shot, fans of foreign films will appreciate this title as well. Highly Recommended." - Video Librarian

    "As in Samurai Wolf, we have a sword fight roughly every five minutes, with some imaginative blood spurts, which should satisfy the most demanding chanbara fan. We also have some stunning black & white photography and some striking locations, particularly for the mountain scenes."
