The worst kind of informer. For gold he would have betrayed his own mother... or us. My father, Admiral Von Skimmel, used to hang such traitors from the *mast*!

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..!
