Still wandering the countryside both on the run from the Yagyus & plotting revenge against them, Itto Ookami (Tomisaburo Wakayama) & his son Daigoro (Akihiro Tomikawa), whom he pushes around in his baby cart, cross paths with Kanbei (Go Kato), a samurai fallen from grace who has hooked up with the wrong people & is now forced into the role of a killer because of their stupidity.

But when Ookami witnesses him killing, Kanbei has to challenge Ookami to a duel,, to get rid of a witness (but secretly he hopes to end his own misery that way. Ookami though sees that beneath all his flaws, Kanbei is a true warrior, & calls it a draw before they even start to fight.

Later Ookami & son save the life of a woman who has been sold off into slavery but has killed her master when he was trying to rape her. Now the wandering warrir clan Boochachimono is behind her. Ookami, not wanting another bloodbath, agrees to undergo a ritual that ultimately would set the woman free ... & the Boochachimono xsstick to their word & let the woman go ... but that doesn't keep them from severely torturing Ookami as part of their ritual. But Ookami survives everything without even as much as moaning ...

Then Torizo (Yuko Hamada), the cfemale leadeer of the Boochachimono, tells Ookami to finally atone for the woman's sins he has to kill lord Genba (Izao Yamagata), a clanleader gone rogue & an enemy of the Boochachimono..

When Ookami meets with lord Genba though, Genba tries to hire him to kill another clanleader, offers him good money, & furthermore the other clanleader is in cahoots with Ookami's arch-enemies, the Yagyus ... so it's allthe more reason to worry when Ookami declines ...

Genba promptly (& rightly) suspects the only reason for this might be that Ookami is after his own head, & soon hires warriors from near & far, including archers & gunmen, to get rid of Ookami, & eventually Ookami finds himself surrounded by a veritable army, only armed with his sword & Daigoro's babycart ... which seems to be pretty much enough since the babycart can be used as a shield against the arrows, & obviously has built-in machineguns. & after the gunmen & the archers are all dead, Ookami slashes his way through the rest of the army & ultimately lord Genba himself ...

At the end, only Ookami & Daigoro are left alive, & Kanbei, who has taken up employ from lord Genba merely to get another chance to fight Ookami.... & this time Ookami accepts the challenge.

Of course, Kanbei dies in the end, but he can die a happy man, because he dies like the warrior he always wanted to be.

 

Of course, the third Lone Wolf & Cub-movie has little new to offer plotwise (especially since the first 2 movies weren't all that original in the first place), but it displays an entertaining array of weapons (especially the babycart turning into a machinegun), lots of comic-book-style over-the-top violence.& even some touches of elegance (most notably in the Boochachimono).
