Funny Spaghetti western with Sartana and Sabbath as tough protagonists, 6 July 2005
Author: ma-cortes

Sartana (George Hilton ) is a freelance gunman who at the initiation of the film works as bounty killer . After that , he helps a Mexican family against a ¨ posse ¨ of cruel bandits ( whose leader is Nello Pazzafini ) who try to kill and reckoning him . He subsequently is hired by a rich landowner (Piero Lulli) to guard the miners's payroll that is continuously robbed . Another cocky gunman ( Charles Southwood ) appears in the city and the confrontation will be inevitable .

The first movie on Sartana is by Frank Kramer (Gianfranco Parolini) interpreted by John Garco ( or Gianni Garco ), besides it was starred by Klaus Kinski and William Berger . After being continued by Alfonso Balcazar ( Sartana non perdona or Sonora ). Miles Deem directed two Sartanas which are considered as awful. Anthony Ascott(Giuliano Carmineo) realized several movies with George Hilton who replaces to Garco . Hilton plays more natural and roguish than Garco who was cold and peculiar . In this one Sartana has a partner ( Charles Southwood ) called Sabbath but isn't the hero named Sabata created by Frank Kramer with Lee Van Cleef . The movie has the typical Spaghetti characters , as the violent facing , greedy antiheroes, bloody and spectacular showdowns, quick zooms , extreme baddies, and musical score with Ennio Morricone influence . In the picture there are the habituals Western's secondary as Folco Lulli , Nello Pazzafini ( also usual of Peplum ), and the Eurotrash Goddess, the babe Erika Blanc . The Francesco De Masi's soundtrack is nice and atmospheric , he's a good Western musician with enough scores. The movie is regularly directed but is entertaining.
