Who he is and where he came from, no one knows. But the leading citizens of the Western town of Daugherty think he knows too much. And they want to silence him forever. Get ready for the fast-paced, explosive action as Lee Van Cleef (For A Few Dollars More) stars as Sabata, the mysterious, steely-eyed gunslinger who, after he discovers Daugherty s elite are the masterminds behind the elaborate bank heist, imposes his bullet-laced brand of justice on the town. Bribes, bullets and even his turncoat best friend can t stop Sabata as he guns and gallops to a final spectacular shootout that s one of the biggest gunfights ever seen in the movies. Filmed in Spain and Italy, Sabata is another of producer Alberto Grimaldi s (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly) hard-hitting western, a series that began as an imitation of the Hollywood genre but resulted in the creation of a new screen star the Western anti-hero.
Zapata Westerns is a nickname given to a subgenre of “Spaghetti Westerns”, dating largely from the mid-1960s to early 1970s, which were set in and around Mexico and dealt with overtly political themes. They were named after Emiliano Zapata, the famous Mexican revolutionary from the Mexican Revolution of 1913, during which most of these films are set. The term is also sometimes used for American films set during this conflict.
