4.0 out of 5 stars In fact I think this is the best one. 13 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Now before you jump down my throat you should know that I'm a Van Cleef fan. I bought the original "Sabata" and "Return of Sabata" because LVC was in it. I bought this one to complete the set, even though I expected to hate Yul Brynner's intrusion into LVC territory!

Well, the plain truth as I see it is that, in terms of production quality, IMHO this is the best of the three. It was a fun romp with good use made of the Almeria scenery and some lovely touches of direction (for example the thrown dagger through the portait, which then cuts the portait in two as it follows the unseen victim falling behind it. I also detected subtle homages to other spaghetti westerns, for example the closing music cutting in just as the 2nd lead was about to scream a parting curse at the lead - a la the ending of "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly".

Speaking of which, the music was quite good, recalling the original Sabata theme in fresh ways (music by Bruno Nicolai).

Yul Brynner wasn't bad in the part, though his shirt open to the navel irritated me a tad: he just needed a big gold medallion to scream "70s!".

So, while I'm sure that LVC would have been just as good in this role, in all honesty I can't discount the movie just because he was absent.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's the one with the ball bearings !! 21 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a very odd spaghetti western with a strange history.

Bryner did not want to make a magnificent seven sequel and signed up to do a film called Indio Black.
Van Cleef didn't want to do another Sabata film and signed up to play Bryner's part in the magnificent seven sequel.
The producers then renamed Indio Black to Adios Sabata.

Onto the film itself.

Bryner's gun is one of the oddest I've seen - a small rifle with a magazine that looks like a harmonica that is pushed horizontally and the last chamber contains his cigar.

One guy uses metal balls that he drops into a groove in the top of his shoe then kicks it with lethal accuracy at his opponents

A model battleship that is not all it seems

Austrians - loads of them

Plot wise not exactly original - the theft of gold - but great fun

5.0 out of 5 stars Mexican western 16 April 2013
By Zebedee
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Once again Yul Brynner dominates a film. This film is fun, exciting and extremely watchable. This film does contain some actors, who at times, were a bit off the mark however they do not spoil the enjoyment of the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only average - at best 2 Dec 2008
By LXIX TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This film starts well and has its moments but after half an hour or so it seems rather rushed, disjointed in places, and repetitive (get the gold ... shoot the baddies ... guard the gold ... shoot the baddies ... doublecross each other ... shoot the baddies ... shoot each other).

Yul Brynner gives a fairly decent performance as Sabata (in his exotic, stand-offish way), but for me he's not quite as memorable in the role as Lee Van Cleef.

The body count is very high in this movie, but it's cartoon violence with little or no gravitas to it. The music is also very Clint Eastwoodesque and rather blatantly so (even with whistling and music boxes etc), and the bad guys are, most unusually for a Western, Austrian army imperialists.

Overall, one for the genre purists and the Yul Brynner fans, but otherwise probably best left alone.
