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

Hey Sabata..! Welcome to the Revolution!!!
26 June 1999 | by smiley-32See all my reviews

Yes! Here we are with a movie that has guns, explosions, and more guns that even Rambo would've had if he had more sense..

In this film it tells the story of Sabata who helps out a feline Ambassodor go after an Austrian soldier (Colonel Skimmel) to capture gold from his fortress.

Easy to say it can be done, but there's trouble on the way as Skimmel sends a whole load of Austrians to go after Sabata and his outlaws to prevent him from getting the gold.

This film is very watchable, even on a rainy day. It kept me glued throughout the whole film. Brilliant music score, acting is a bit wooden, but although Yul Brynner is in this one, you'll be sure that he'll get the job done..!
