Storyline

In Mexico, during the rule of the self-proclaimed Emperor of Mexico Maximillian (1864-1867), Mexican revolutionaries and Republican forces try to bring former Mexican President Benito Juárez back to power. The United States in neutral and is going through the pains of the American Civil War. Mexican guerrilla leader Señor Ocaño hires gunfighter Sabata to steal a wagon-load of gold from Emperor Maximillian's Austrian and French forces. When Sabata and his friends, Escudo and Ballantine, finally get their hands on a wagon, they discover it's full of sand rather than gold. They suspect that the gold was stolen by Austrian Colonel Skimmel. Therefore, Sabata and his partners set out to find the gold and give it to the Mexican revolutionaries. Written by nufs68

Great Sabata film!
24 January 2000 | by (Florianópolis, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sabata is now in the Mexican revolution as Yul Brynner. Is it possible to this movie be a bad flick? I don't think so. It seems to me that Parolini gave a lot of liberty for Brynner to play the part well. First he doesn't try to imitate Lee Van Cleef, because he's almost playing the part of Chris from "The Magnificent Seven" (the set is the Mexican revolution, he has to help the Mexicans and he wears only black; oops!). As for the direction, Parolini proves here that he is in the spaghetti western genre just like Duccio Tessari and Sergio Corbucci: not a great director, but at least a man with a style (and let's face it: in this particular genre the guy has got to be at least good to have his trademarks and shit like that). All in all a very good example of how the spaghetti western wasn't so bad as the critics like to say. Great use of the Techniscope widescreen photography (it has more zooms than the films of Mario Bava and Leone together, but they are very well done) by director of photography Alessandro Mancori. Well, I guess this is all.
