Critic Reviews for Ehi amico... c'è Sabata, hai chiuso! (Sabata)
Though it's a little rough around the edges from a technical standpoint, this high-octane, cult Spaghetti Western still offers plenty of unique, stylized fun.
The movie has a snappy pace, fierce style, and bursts of aggression, keeping genre elements alert as it details a peculiar story of blackmail.
Audience Reviews for Ehi amico... c'è Sabata, hai chiuso! (Sabata)
I've seen an expert consensus list that ranks "Sabata" as the 21st best spaghetti Western. I guess that I won't be finding many more spaghetti Westerns to enjoy, because this film is hardly essential. Derivative and clumsily directed, and the musical score is only average. The most interesting feature is Sabata's muscular crony Alley Cat (Bruno Akmar), a genuine acrobat who performs some amazing tumbles. But William Berger (and his inescapable smirk) is remarkably annoying as "Banjo," the only man who becomes a serious challenge for trick-gunslinger Sabata (Lee Van Cleef).
So, am i the only one that noticed that Sabata and Sartana are very similar? They dress the same, they have cool gadgets and all sorts of clever tricks to kill the bad guys. Considering the SW defined itself with the lone anti-hero with ambigous morals it's no surprise to find so many coincidences. There's only one year apart from each film, so....anyway. As for the film, fun stuff, would feel more fluid having 10 or 20 minutes less. Cleef is obviously a different kid of badass from Gianni Garko. The always solid William Berger provides a good supporting role, catchy theme song, good times.
Not really a great movie, but itâ€™s essentially the continuation of Colonel Mortimer from For a Few Dollars More. This is less rich when it comes to storytelling and direction, but itâ€™s still fun in itâ€™s own right. A classic gunslinger story that includes a number of double crosses and manslaughter. Itâ€™s also the inventor of the shotgun guitar, by far one of the most outlandish ideas. If youâ€™re a fan of Lee Van Cleef itâ€™s definitely worth it.
