Trivia

In the song that is sung over the opening credits, Sabata is referred to as a "nine-fingered man." This was a reference to actor Lee Van Cleef who was missing a portion of a middle finger, the result of an accident when building a playhouse for his daughter. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Sabata and the goons are about to play the "see-saw game" in the saloon, Sabata is seen putting on his gloves, then they pan out to a long shot of the entire saloon and he's gloveless. When they return to the close-up of Sabata, he's wearing the gloves again. See more »

Solid continental western
29 October 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Sabata returns (again) to kick a** and earn cash. Van Cleef is good and there is a lot of visual interest in this action story. I particularly liked the shots of Sabata and friends cresting various sand dunes. The acrobats and other characters from the other Sabata films are also back, once again with new names (very much like Eastwood's "no name" character who, contrary to myth, in fact has 3 names) presumably so they can be killed off again. I had a lot of fun watching it, but 3 days later I can't really remember what it was about. Well, heck, it's still a good movie!
