George Hilton as Sartana meets Sabata and goes for the gold, 6 April 2013
Author: msroz from United States

"I am Sartana, trade your guns for a coffin" is a thoroughly enjoyable spaghetti western. I wonder how any movie fan cannot get their minds off their troubles by watching this movie, or almost any spaghetti western.

Not knowing the plot or what to expect in advance is half the fun. The characters are so ambiguous, shifty, and willing to make new alliances that you can't hardly tell the good guys from the bad guys sometimes. You distrust them all and wonder what they'll come up with next.

Sartana is still a cool character, dressed in black with a cape, riding a dirty white horse. He still has an ace up his sleeve in any situation.

The plot twists in this one took me entirely by surprise.

This western brings in a character named Sabata, who bears no resemblance to the Sabata of Lee Van Cleef, but who is still interesting as strong competition to Sartana in gun skill.

Great fun with lots of novel gunplay.
