Okay spaghetti western
30 January 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

The spaghetti western character of Sabata wasn't ripped off as much as Django, but it did happen several times, this western being one of them. Although Sabata is named in the title, surprisingly he is not the central character of the movie - he's a supporting character. Also, he is made to be a villain, not a heroic character. Most of the movie is focused on the characters played by Richard Harrison and Fernando Sancho. The two actors have some good chemistry together, and also manage to deliver a considerable amount of light comic relief, which is welcome. There is a significant problem with the movie, and that is that the middle section of the movie moves at a crawl, with little done to advance the story. But if you are patient, the movie ends up being an okay spaghetti western.
