"Who is this guy? He is not Sabata. Sabata was cool
Adios Sabata proves that just one seemingly innocuous thing can just about ruin an entire film - something - lets say - like a costume. Someone decided that poor Yule wear a cross between a Las Vegas show costume and an S&M outfit complete with outrageously long tassels a plunging neck line and flared pants. This is so embarrassingly uncool for a Spaghetti western anti-hero that it almost ruins the entire film. Otherwise the film is actually not bad - it has a coherent plot and lots of action and color. Adios Sabata has a darker tone then the original Sabata due to Brunner's hard nosed performance, political overtones and ultra cruel bad guy. The film is even more tongue in cheek and looks more expensive then Sabata. There are more plot twists, acrobats, outlandish gimmicks and gadgets. Yule's overly series performance in that outfit just doesn't make it as Sabata although the rest of the cast is excellent. The soundtrack by Bruno Nicolai is one of his best and perfect spaghetti western fair. The film could have been great."
